If you're looking for a versatile and efficient sedan, then you're probably considering the Hyundai Accent vs. Chevy Sonic. And while the Sonic is a popular pick for many, the Hyundai Accent is the better buy. Between its superior performance and more practical design, the Hyundai Accent specs are far more impressive.


The Hyundai Accent specs reflect a more fuel-efficient car, which means you can afford to take the scenic route from Streamwood to Schaumburg! The Hyundai Accent generates up to an EPA-estimated 28 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway, while the Chevy Sonic maxes out at an estimated 27 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. Plus, the Accent has much larger front rotors to enhance stopping power - as well as available antilock four-wheel disc brakes that aren't offered on the Chevy Sonic! This leads to better handling and a better driving experience overall.

Between the Hyundai Accent vs. Chevy Sonic, the Accent has the more spacious cabin in nearly every dimension. The Accent has an extra .2 inches of headroom and .3 inches of additional legroom in the front, as well as an extra .7 inches of rear shoulder room in the back. Plus, some Hyundai Accent trim levels offer a hands-free liftgate on the exterior, so there's no problem loading the Accent when you've got your hands full of bags and boxes. The Chevy Sonic doesn't offer this feature at all.
