Standard Features Between the 2017 Accent and Rio

When it comes to value, it's tough to beat the 2017 Hyundai Accent. The 2017 Kia Rio probably doesn't succeed. We'll let you be the ultimate judge, but keep in mind that the Accent comes standard with some pretty desirable features that the Rio does not.

Such features include a 6-speaker sound system, driver seat armrest, front seat map light, mini overhead console, illuminated entry, and even power front and rear windows. Those are all things you'd expect just about any car to come standard with, but yet, the Rio doesn't.

Differences Between the 2017 Accent and 2017 Rio

Despite the similarities between the models, such as their sedan or hatchback variants and their similar engine specs, there are key differences. If you have practical concerns, then consider the fact that the Accent has superior cargo space when in hatchback form, as well as superior legroom. Moreover, you can expect to save a little bit more on gas thanks to the model's superior fuel efficiency figures.

Now that you can see the Accent has an edge in this comparison, contact us at Coastal Hyundai to get behind the wheel. We are sure you won't be disappointed with your decision.
