When it comes to the subcompact sedan segment, there aren’t quite as many options to choose from as larger segments. However, there is still a healthy selection, so we thought we’d make your decision slightly simpler by comparing our favorite model in the segment against one of its biggest competitors, by pitting the 2017 Hyundai Accent vs 2017 Toyota Yaris iA.
The table just below takes a look at a few of the most important specifications to consider in a comparison like this. As you can tell, the vehicles are very similar, but each has its advantages. We thought we’d work our way right through the table for you, starting at the top.
The first row takes a look at power, which is the first area that the Hyundai Accent has an advantage. 31 horsepower might not sound like a lot, but you’ll certainly be able to tell a difference in the acceleration and pick up the vehicle has to offer. The trade-off however can be seen in the second row, which depicts combined fuel efficiency. The Yaris iA can drive 2 miles further on every gallon of gas, which isn’t a massive advantage but will certainly save you some change at the gas pump over time.
The last two rows look at space, which is important in subcompact cars like these. Each sedan’s trunk is nearly identical, though the Hyundai Accent does offer a bit more room. Though the trunk volume would hardly be noticeable, the extra 4 cubic feet of space in the Accent’s cabin certainly would. That’s 4 extra cubic feet of space for your passengers to stretch out in.
