Performance and Efficiency

Perfectly engineered for day-to-day commuting and for that spur of the moment road trip out of town, each compact provides their own peppy 1.6L 4-cylinder engine.

Hyundai Accent drivers who choose the base trim can opt for either a manual transmission or a nimble, 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC® and Active ECO system. By comparison, the Versa base trim offers only a 5-speed manual.

This smart tech helps the Accent seamlessly shift through stop-and-go traffic while achieving 130 horsepower, compared to the Versa, which supplies only 109 horsepower. Despite its stronger performance, the Accent also manages to outdo the Versa while at the pump:

Hyundai Accent vs Nissan Versa: Interior Space and Comfort

Whether making stops around town or loading up the kids for a day down the shore, each compact supplies ample head- and legroom for up to five passengers.

When it comes to the Hyundai Accent vs. Nissan Versa, cargo space is equally generous, though the Accent provides 60/40 split fold-down rear seatbacks across its three trims, whereas, in the Versa, you'll have to upgrade to the top trim in order to enjoy this space-saving feature. The same goes for the Accent's remote keyless entry system and steering-wheel-mounted audio controls.

Innovative Technology

One of the main advantages to buying or leasing an Accent is the long list of standard technologies and features to make your everyday drives feel a little extra special. Thanks to its 7-inch touchscreen display and multiple power points, you and your passengers can easily connect and charge all your favorite devices.

Likewise, the Versa also employs a 7-inch touchscreen display with simple-to-use tech including Bluetooth® hands-free-phone and Siri® Eyes Free. Unlike the Accent, the Versa does not offer connective services like Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, or SiriusXM® Satellite Radio.

Active Safety Features

Wherever the road leads, travel with the confidence knowing the Hyundai Accent is loaded with a full suite of active safety features that supply greater peace of mind.

While higher trims come equipped with driver-assist features like Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist and a special blind spot mirror, each trim level also includes their own bevy of features like: Vehicle Stability Management, Electronic Stability Control, 4-channel Anti-lock Braking System, and more.  

Meanwhile, the Nissan Versa offers a Vehicle Dynamics Control with Traction Control system and an advanced airbag system with roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental airbags for nearly 360-degrees of protection.
