Let's see how the 2015 Hyundai Accent compares to the Ford Fiesta.
HYUNDAI ACCENT POWERTRAIN VS FORD FIESTA POWERTRAIN
There's no denying that the Accent is one of the best in its subcompact class in terms of fit and finish, but it also scores highly in terms of power. A 137hp, 1.6-liter 4-cylinder GDI engine with Dual Continuous Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT) and 137hp powers all three available models, with a 6-speed manual standard and a 6-speed automatic transmission with a Shiftronic manual mode available as an option. By contrast, the Ford Fiesta has a choice of 3 engines --- a similar 1.6L 16-valve Inline-4 with only 120hp, an optional 1.0L EcoBoost Inline-3, or a 1.6L Turbocharged EcoBoost Inline-4. Only a 5-speed manual is standard, with a 6-speed automatic optional.
ACCENT FUEL ECONOMY VS FIESTA FUEL ECONOMY
Despite having more available engines, the 2015 Accent outshines the Ford Fiesta by a mile -- well, actually, 2. While the 2015 Accent gets amazing fuel economy with an estimated 38 mpg on the highway, each automatic transmission Accent comes with an Active ECO System that will save you even more on gas. Even with a choice of engines, the Hyundai Accent beats the Fiesta on fuel economy, with a maximum estimated 36 mpg highway.
The 2015 Hyundai Accent is available in three models -- the GLS 4-door sedan, the GS 5-door hatchback and the Sport 5-door hatchback. 14" steel wheels are standard on the GLS and GS while the Sport adds flair with 16-inch alloy wheel, an optional power sunroof and standard Bluetooth with steering wheel controls. You won't be disappointed as a driver or passenger when it comes to the 2015 Accent's entertainment system, which includes Sirius XM radio, IPod connectivity and 6-speakers of sound. Safety features that are found on higher-end cars come standard on the 2015 Accent, such as a Driver's Blind Spot Mirror and a tire pressure monitoring system. The Fiesta comes with standard 15-inch wheels but lacks interior standard features such as satellite radio or the helpful blind spot mirror.
