2018 Hyundai Accent vs. 2018 Toyota Yaris

While 2018 sedan models for many car brands are becoming more and more competitive, the fifth generation 2018 Hyundai Accent is quickly becoming a favorite among car enthusiasts in Springfield, PA. One of its greatest competitors, the 2018 Toyota Yaris, does offer a couple of sleek features, but let us see why the Accent is a preferred auto when it comes to design, safety and performance.

Design & Style

The upgrade that the Toyota Yaris has from its previous 2017 model features a redone rear and front end, an incremental upgrade, especially among Toyota’s hatchbacks. However, the difference between this and older models may not be too convincing. The 2018 Hyundai Accent, on the other hand, cues its shape from larger versions like the Elantra sedan, with new designs in its front and rear appearance giving it a more mature look.

The centerpiece instrumentations on the dashboards of the 2018 Toyota Yaris were quite an intuitive layout since the 2017 version. In addition, The SE versions of the 2018 Yaris offer a sportier seating area, but a tall driver will find it hard looking for a comfortable seating position. In comparison, car lovers are excited about the 7.0-inch central touchscreen dashboard of the Accent, compatible with both Android and Apple applications. In addition, its wheelbase stretches outwards by 0.4 inches, giving more passenger room and cargo space.

Technology & Safety

Safety features can either rule out or give a plus to a car for any enthusiast, and techies are extremely concerned with this area when doing a comparison. Both cars have introduced an automated breaking system for emergencies, but the 2018 Toyota Yaris system only works best at low speeds. In addition the 2018 Hyundai Accent has included an optional start push-button and a keyless entry feature uncommon to previous versions of Hyundai.

Your will have more options to choose from with the Accent when it comes to adjusting and personalizing your steering. A mode selector has been introduced, allowing a driver to adjust the system’s heft to his liking, a feature that was previously the reserve for more expensive Hyundai brands.


While the hatchback version of the Toyota Yaris offers a 5-speed manual transmission system and a 4-speed automatic transmission option, the 2018 Toyota Yaris sedan version and the 2018 Hyundai Accent both power their front wheels via a 6-speed automatic and manual transmission. The Hyundai however takes the day with a 1.6ltr engine, compared to the Toyota’s 1.5ltr engine.

Therefore, the 2018 Hyundai Accent pushes a massive 132 horsepower and 119 pound-feet worth of torque. With such strength the Hyundai promises its users stronger acceleration and fuel efficiency.

Bottom line

A quick comparison shows that the 2018 Hyundai Accent has more superior features compared to the 2018 version of Toyota Yaris. While the Toyota has invested quite a bit on the dashboard’s tech features, the Hyundai Accent rises above the Yaris in capacity, efficiency and torque.
