Chevrolet Sonic Vs Hyundai Accent

If you are searching for a great new subcompact car, you’d be wise to check out the 2012 Chevy Sonic. This stylish new entry from Chevy gives drivers a great combination of trim options, power, fuel economy, and interior space. As the subcompact class continues to grow, the Chevy Sonic faces some very tough competition, still managing to separate itself as a top choice. Let’s take a look at how the Sonic stacks up against a top competitor, the Hyundai Accent.

More Trims and Features

Both the new Chevy sedan and the Hyundai offer very impressive performance when it comes to fuel economy, but in just about every other category the Sonic tops the Accent. Both are can be had as a sedan or hatchback, but the Accent offers only the base trim for the sedan, and only two trim options for the hatchback. The Sonic offers three sedan trims as well as three hatchback trims. In terms of engines, Chevy gives you two choices, a naturally-aspirated 1.8L inline four cylinder as well as a turbocharged version that improves both torque and fuel economy. The Accent doesn’t give any choices when it comes to the engine; you are stuck with the naturally-aspirated 1.6L four cylinder.

The Sonic blows the Accent out of the water when it comes to interior features. With just a base model sedan, the Hyundai just simply can’t offer the premium features that can be had with the Chevy. The Sonic offers heated seats, remote start, single-zone climate control, and a power sunroof, all unavailable with the Accent. Additionally, the Sonic offers an onboard, handsfree communication system that helps you to keep your focus on the road.
