With a new model year comes new comparisons, and our team here at Cox Toyota is bringing two popular compact sedans head-to-head to show drivers how they differ. With all the excitement around the 2016 Toyota Corolla, drivers interested in this vehicle have been curious to see how it compares to the competition. First, we’re putting it up against the 2016 Hyundai Accent Sedan to show drivers what each vehicle has to offer.
The first thing drivers will notice is the difference in price. The 2016 Hyundai Accent Sedan has a lower starting price point in comparison to the 2016 Toyota Corolla, but the Corolla makes up for it when it comes to standard features not offered on the Hyundai Accent Sedan. Both vehicles have a very similar estimated fuel economy, so drivers are sure to save money at the pump no matter which vehicle they choose. They offer seating for 5 passengers, and both vehicles come standard with a 6-speed manual transmission. Expected standard features such as power locks, windows and mirrors can be found on both compact sedans.

The 2016 Toyota Corolla starts to shine brighter than the 2016 Hyundai Accent Sedan when it comes to the amount of features standard on the base model. As far as driver convenience, Bluetooth and steering wheel controls come standard on the 2016 Corolla, but they’re only optional on the 2016 Accent Sedan. Voice activated controls are also standard with the Corolla, but they’re not available on the Hyundai Accent.

The Corolla comes standard with an anti-theft protection system whereas the Accent Sedan does not have one. Front knee airbags are standard on the Corolla, but they cannot be found in the Hyundai Accent Sedan.
