Hyundai Accent vs. Competitors for Sale in Hyannis, MA

Overview

The compact sedan class provides affordable and fuel-efficient transportation for those who want to get to their daily destinations without breaking the bank. To make these relatively no-nonsense cars even more enticing and keep their market share steady, the manufacturers are always improving their product offerings to outdo the competition. One of the leaders in this segment is the Hyundai Accent, which goes head to head with the Subaru Impreza, Honda Civic Sedan, Toyota Corolla, and Kia Forte, to name a handful. Let’s explore that rivalry in more detail.

Warranty and Pricing

Hyundai has the longest warranty in the business, which is matched only by the related Kia Forte. With its full 5-year/60,000-mile basic warranty, which covers the entire car and includes 24-hour roadside assistance, and 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty (which covers the engine, transmission, axles, joints, and driveshafts), Accent buyers can breathe easy for as many years as they care to keep the car. Aside from the Forte, the other compact sedans mentioned here only come with a 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. The Forte doesn’t match up with its corrosion warranty though, as the Accent’s is two years longer, at seven years rather than five (which is the case for each of the other rivals as well).

Adding to the Accent’s appeal is its low starting MSRP, which is $15,295 with the manual transmission and $16,395 with the continuously variable transmission (actually, it’s a Smartstream Intelligent Variable Transmission, for prime fuel efficiency), making it the least expensive of the bunch. On the other hand, the Forte begins at $17,890, the Impreza at $18,695, the Corolla at $19,600, and the Civic at $20,650.


Fuel Efficiency and Space

A 2020 Hyundai Accent with the CVT/IVT gets outstanding fuel economy: an EPA-estimated 33 mpg around town and 41 mpg on the highway. This is on par with the 32 city/42 highway achieved by the Civic Sedan with the LL-CVT found on its higher trims. That said, the Accent clearly beats the Impreza (28 city/36 highway), Civic (30 city/38 highway), Corolla (31 city/40 highway), and Forte (31 city/41 highway). With its 13.7 cubic feet of trunk space, the Accent outdoes the Corolla (13.1 cu. ft.) and Impreza (12.3 cu. ft.).


Handling

The Accent will be easier to handle, maneuver, and park in tight spaces compared to its rivals because it’s 5.3 inches shorter than the Civic, 9.7 in. shorter than the Corolla, and 10.1 in. shorter than the Impreza and Forte. For better maneuverability, the Accent’s turning radius (33.5 feet) is tighter than the Impreza’s (35.4 ft.), Civic’s (35.4 ft. with LX and EX trims, 37.8 ft. with Sport and Sport Touring), Forte’s (34.8 ft.), and Corolla’s (34.1 ft.), making it a fantastic city car.
