Finding the right used supermini vehicle can be tough. With so many options on the market, the decision can feel overwhelming. Although you’ll find that in the world of subcompact cars, two names stand out: Ford Fiesta and Hyundai Accent. These two vehicles are both worthy contenders, but how do they compare to one another? Watch the video below to see which would be the best investment for your money.
For starters, the 2016 Ford Fiesta has a mantle piece full of trophies, including a Consumer’s Digest Best Buy Award. Everyone loves a good investment, right? The Accent, on the other hand, did not win the award.
The Ford Fiesta comes with an optional rear view camera, which eliminates the stress of backing into tight parking spaces or maneuvering through busy parking lots. The Accent has no such option. Safety is always a priority for Ford and the Fiesta is no exception. In addition to the typical slew of airbags, the Fiesta has also included a driver’s knee airbag. Accent drivers don’t get that particular airbag, but they can always invest in knee pads.
Of course, one of the biggest reasons people choose subcompact ars is for the outstanding fuel economy. And once again, the 2016 Ford Fiesta is the victor with an EPA rating of 43 mpg on the highway. With that sort of mileage, you can afford to take the scenic route home.
