It’s always important to know how far your vehicle can take you and how it runs in different driving environments. Both vehicles are good for taking the family on a trip or a supermarket run in the morning. They’re also fun to take out for a cruise as well.

We’ll start with the Elantra. It boasts an engine capable of putting out 147 horsepower, giving it an EPA-estimated 33 city/43 highway/37 combined MPG.1 Both vehicles utilize Smartstream® Intelligent Variable Transmission.

In comparison, the Accent has an engine capable of putting out up to 120 horsepower, while achieving an EPA-estimated 33 city/41 highway/36 combined MPG.2

You can easily see how both vehicles offer a good mix of power and efficiency, meaning they’ll be great for a wide variety of drivers. Both vehicles make for an excellent driving experience, so it comes down to personal preference.

When taking your new vehicle out for a drive, it’s good to have some fun with it. The two models offer different amenities when it comes to providing entertainment to you, the driver. We’ll tackle the Elantra first.

The Elantra comes equipped with a suite of technology that is designed for the active listener by connecting to their phones. The fun begins with the standard wireless Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®. This means that regardless of the type of smartphone you have, you’ll be able to interface with the vehicle.

Access to all your music and contacts at your disposal. The convenience of it all! It’s bolstered by having a standard Bluetooth® hands-free phone system with Voice Recognition. Another great way to keep you connected to what you love and listen to.

On the other hand, the Accent is geared up with tech that makes it desirable for those drivers who prefer traditional forms of media. With a built-in AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system with a 5-inch color touchscreen and four speakers, you’ll have access and the sound to thoroughly enjoy your favorite tunes.

It also includes Bluetooth® connectivity, allowing you to stream your phone’s music with ease.

We’ve covered some important topics to aid you in your car-buying journey, but safety is perhaps the most important.  When you drive, you want that confidence that your vehicle is looking out for you or is prepared for any nasty situations that may occur. Here we’ll talk about the safety features of each vehicle.

The Elantra’s safety features are robust, offering features such as Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, and a handful of others.

The Accent differs in offerings but still guarantees a smooth safe ride. The highlights of its safety features include Vehicle Stability Management, Electronic Stability Control, Traction Control System, and a 4-wheel, 4-channel Anti-lock Braking System, with Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Brake Assist.

Both offer robust safety packages that will keep you protected from the hazards of the road and grant that peace of mind that you deserve. It all comes down to which features fit your preferences, but no matter what, you’ll be safe riding in either vehicle.
