How the 2020 Kia Rio Compares to the Hyundai Accent


A Small Package with Surprising Perks

There’s more to the 2020 Kia Rio than initially meets the eye. Its fun and fuel-efficient inline 4-cylinder engine takes you further for less, and with the comfortable interior loaded with standard technology and convenience features, you won’t mind the journey.

If you’re wondering how the Rio stands out from its close competitor the Hyundai Accent, this comparison guide will help highlight the differences between these models. We here at Spitzer Kia Mansfield are committed to giving you the best car shopping experience by presenting the information you need and helping you find your next vehicle—without pressure.

Here are a few of the differences between the 2020 Kia Rio and the Hyundai Accent.

Get Connected with Standard Technology Features

The Hyundai Accent includes these options on their higher trim levels, but all trim levels of the Rio come standard with the technology you need to stay connected on the go.

While the base Accent comes with a 5-inch touchscreen display, the Rio gives you 7 inches standard on all trims. This 7-inch color touchscreen display doesn’t just give you access to your favorite apps—it’s voice-activated, too, so you can send texts, make calls, and more while keeping your hands on the wheel. Whether you want to chat with Siri® or navigate via Google Maps, Rio makes it simple.

Rio’s infotainment system also includes Bluetooth® standard (so does Accent on all trims), so you can keep every drive entertaining with playlists and podcasts. The steering wheel-mounted controls allow you to even make and receive calls via Bluetooth®.

Stay Comfortable with Standard Convenience Features

Dealing with weather extremes can be tough enough. That’s why the Kia Rio includes several convenience features that create a pleasant atmosphere every time you slip inside—and they’re all standard.

Designed to help block heat, the windshield and front windows are all made with solar control glass that helps reduce heat buildup on warm days. Both Rio and Accent include a rear window defroster to help clear your view during cooler weather, but Rio also includes heated exterior mirrors standard (Accent includes these on the higher trims).

While both Rio and Accent include a USB input port standard and USB charging ports on their higher trim levels, only Rio includes a 12-volt outlet standard on every trim.
