2017 Hyundai Accent vs 2017 Toyota Yaris iA

There sure are some interesting compact four-door sedans out there, but many of them have a promise of an affordable price, but lack the features to make it a solid value. Let’s see which compact has the better value with this 2017 Hyundai Accent vs 2017 Toyota Yaris iA comparison.

The Hyundai Accent is also available as a hatchback, but to keep things fair, since the Yaris iA is exclusively a sedan, we will only use the Accent’s sedan model for comparison. Looking at the two models side-by-side the Accent has beautiful lines that evoke the imagery of a fighter jet. On the other end of the spectrum, the Yaris iA looks more like an angry bug than anything that you’d want to drive. Everyone has their own tastes though, so if you’d like to learn more, look to the chart that we have below otherwise you can search through our Accent inventory now.
