Trim Levels of the Sedans

Hyundai Accent vs Kia Rio: Which One Has Better Gas Mileage?

The engine in both of these cars is a 1.6L four-cylinder and will give both the Kia Rio and Hyundai Accent 130 horsepower and 119 lb-ft of torque. The difference in performance will be just how well these cars can conserve fuel.

The fuel economy of the Kia Rio is an estimated 28 city/37 highway MPG. The Hyundai Accent has an available six-speed automatic transmission that features both SHIFTRONIC® and Active ECO System. What this transmission will be able to do is adjust when it shifts based on your driving habits to maximize power and help reduce fuel consumption. Due to this, the 2019 Accent will get up to 28 city/38 highway MPG.*

Staying Comfortable Year-Round

When it comes to the Hyundai Accent vs. Kia Rio, each model comes standard with cloth seating and a six-way adjustable driver seat for you to form the seat to your ideal position.

The extra features that you will find in the Hyundai Accent will enhance your comfort even more. You will be happy with your decision to get the available heated seats when driving around during the cold months of winter. Whether it is winter or summer, the available automatic temperature control with auto defogging system will help the Accent keep the cabin at a comfortable temperature at all times. Neither of these features are available in the Kia Rio.

Still Plenty of Room in These Subcompact Cars

The Hyundai Accent and Kia Rio are proof that just because you are looking for a smaller body type doesn't mean you need to sacrifice space. You will get 13.7 cubic feet of cargo space with both sedans.

As far as space for you and your passengers, there is 89.9 cubic feet of passenger volume inside the Rio. The Hyundai Accent has slightly more room with 90.2 cubic feet of passenger volume. The big difference in room for each passenger is felt with the amount of hip room that both rows of the Accent have compared to the Rio.  To get more information on the Hyundai Accent, read our car review!
