Scheduling a 2021 Hyundai Accent online test drive is a good way to get a personalized preview of the Hyundai’s exterior. The Hyundai Accent features bold headlights, chrome accents, and steel wheels. Moving up to the second trim level brings a switch to alloy wheels instead. Fog lights are also added at this trim level. LED lights come with the successive Accent trims, along with premium 17-inch alloy wheels. The Kia Rio only has 15-inch wheels to start with. While LED headlights are standard on select trims of the Hyundai Accent, they are only optional through a package with the Kia. Additionally, the largest wheel size available for the Kia is 15 inches.


One engine powers all three trim levels of the Hyundai Accent. The three trims are driven by a 1.6L engine with four cylinders. You will get a six-speed manual transmission at the base level of the Hyundai Accent, while the other trim levels have an automatic transmission instead. The Hyundai gets 120 HP and 113 LB-FT in torque. The Kia Rio produces less torque than the Hyundai. It is also limited to just one kind of transmission, while the Hyundai Accent gives you a choice between two transmission styles.
