2016 Hyundai Accent vs. 2016 Ford Fiesta

The Hyundai Accent and the Ford Fiesta are fuel efficient sedans with high safety standards, as well as excellent design. The cars are in demand due to their fuel efficiency and practicality. When comparing the Hyundai Accent to the Ford Fiesta, you will find that the Hyundai Accent has more to offer compared to its counterpart. Not only is it better made and has higher build quality, but it also has more options and features, as well as a redesign that will be liked by many.

Design & Style

The Hyundai Accent and the Ford Fiesta have both received major styling boosts for the 2016 versions. The Ford Fiesta’s styling is above average compared to other vehicles in the same class. However, it has a chunky exterior that may not resonate well with some customers. The Hyundai Accent has a more subdued look compared to the previous versions. This, together with other design changes, has made it a very appealing.

In the interior, both vehicles seat five passengers, and have ample leg and head room even for taller than average people. The Hyundai Accent manages to pull off a more refined interior design. It looks more luxurious for its price, and also has a quiet ride. The Accent also has a roomier cabin, further increasing its comfort. It features power seats for the driver, a feature missing in the Ford Fiesta.

Technology & Safety

While both the Hyundai and the Ford Fiesta have an impressive array of technological and safety features as would be expected from a modern car, the Hyundai easily trumps the Ford Fiesta. Features such as cruise control, satellite navigation and antilock braking system as well as seatbelt pre-tensioners are present in both. However, the Hyundai has a couple of standard add-ons which make it better equipped. These include an advanced stability system, driver knee airbags, a driver side blind spot mirror and blind spot monitors. It is also outfitted with forward collision warning systems, pedestrian detection and adaptive cruise control.

When looked at in totality, you would be getting more value for money with the Hyundai. The 2016 Hyundai Accent features other technological advancements including a telescoping steering wheel and a high-end audio system with 6 speakers. The touch screen audio system can be paired with Apple CarPlay, Android or USB,


The Ford Fiesta ships with a 1.5 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that churns 174 horsepower and 162 pound feet of torque. This is mated to a continuously variable transmission. The Hyundai Accent, on the other hand, has a 1.6 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 201 horsepower and 195 pound feet of torque, both of which are more than the Ford Fiesta produces. This makes it a better performing vehicle, when you also consider that it has a 6 speed manual transmission or 7 speed DCT

The Bottom Line

These two cars might appear similar, but the Hyundai Accent has more to offer compared to the Fiesta. By buying it, you will be getting more at a lower price point compared to the Ford.
