Changes are always being made to subcompact cars, and Edmonton, Fort McMurray, and Cold Lake drivers may be curious about the 2017 Hyundai Accent vs. the 2017 Kia Rio. While both vehicles deliver similar power, you can count on the Accent to give you more of what you want in a subcompact car. Check out what to expect from these vehicles by comparing them below.


The new Accent will be available in two body styles: the sedan or the hatchback. This way, you can choose what type of vehicle style you enjoy driving. In addition to body styles, the sedan is available in an SE trim while the hatchback comes in both SE and Sport.

The SE will come standard with telescopic and tilt steering wheel, 14-inch wheels, 60/40 split rear seats, full power accessories, keyless entry and ignition, Internet radio, two USB ports, a trip computer, and a six-speaker premium sound system. If you opt for the SE hatchback, you’ll also get cruise control, heated exterior mirrors, and cloth door trim.

You can also opt for the Style and Popular packages, which add Bluetooth, 16-inch wheels, leather-wrapped steering wheel, center console storage box, heated mirrors, steering wheel mounted audio controls, rear disc brakes, and more.

If you opt for the Kia Rio, you’ll only be able to choose a sedan body style that comes in three trims: LX, SX, and EX. The only differences between this year’s Kia and its predecessors are new in-cabin materials and a newly designed dash. Basically, you won’t get nearly as much with the Kia as you will with the Hyundai.


The 2017 Hyundai Accent is set to debut in July 2017 and only cost about $15,000, which is extremely cost-effective for those looking for a great ride on a budget. If you opt for the Kia—the car with less features—you’ll spend anywhere from $15,000-$21,000.
