The growing subcompact market has been more competitive than ever before. The Kia Rio and Hyundai Accent offer good quality for those in search of a reasonable price tag and mediocre performance, but one remains better than the other.
The Hyundai Accent shows off an attractive styling, particularly the hatchback. It also boasts excellent cabin fit and finish while giving a comfortable space for 5 people. The Kia Rio, on the other hand, has a decent powertrain and standard sedan styling. The exterior dimensions of Accent/Rio are 66.9/67.7 inches width, 59.3/59.8 inches track width front, 5.5/5.5 inches min ground clearance, 172/172 inches overall length, 57.1/57.3 inches overall height, 59.5/60 inches track width rear, and 101.2/101.2 inches wheelbase.
