Kia Rio vs. Hyundai Accent

Comparing Kia's & Hyundai's Similar Subcompacts

You may be expecting more value than features in a subcompact car, but you'll surely be pleasantly surprised with the new Kia Rio. This Kia sedan is not just for the rental car lot. It offers a roomy interior and plenty of desirable features and technologies that modern motorists seek in a new car. Both the 2022 Kia Rio and the 2022 Hyundai Accent present more punch and overall performance than what you will find with other small cars, but what about interior space? While these models share some similarities, the Kia Rio comes out on top when it comes to cabin comfort; that's due in part to its wider seating.

The 2022 Kia Rio faces a worthy competitor in the 2022 Nissan Versa. These two small cars for sale are similar in many areas, but key factors that differ include pricing, fuel economy, passenger space and driving range. You see, not only is the 2022 Nissan Versa SV pricier than Kia's highly affordable 2022 Rio LX, but it's also less fuel-efficient and less spacious. That's right; the Kia subcompact tops Nissan's offering in passenger space and fuel economy. Plus, with its larger fuel tank, the more efficient Kia Rio can also take you farther between fill-ups!

Compare Standard Horsepower & Performance

The 2022 Kia Rio and its close competitor, the 2022 Nissan Versa, prove once and for all that driving a subcompact car shouldn't feel substandard.
