    Fuel Economy/Value

    There is no doubt that the 2016 Hyundai Accent has a better fuel economy than the Chevy Sonic. If you drive both vehicles an average of 15,000 miles annually, you’ll save $117 more in gas each year with the Hyundai Accent. But doe that mean the Accent has a better value? Well, because the Hyundai’s MSRP is $1075 more than the Chevy Sonic’s, you would have to drive the Accent for 9 years before its savings in gas met the initial savings of the Sonic’s lower price. When it comes down to it, both vehicles have great fuel economies, but only one has a great value: the 2016 Chevy Sonic.

     

    Vehicle Safety Rating

    When it comes down to vehicle safety, the 2016 Chevy Sonic is the clear winner. With a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Safety Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there is no better choice for crash safety. With only 4 stars, the 2016 Hyundai Accent does not even compare

     

    Warranty Coverage

    Without a doubt, the Hyundai Accent features the warranty package with the best overall coverage. The 2016 Chevy Sonic does have a 2-year Maintenance Program that the Hyundai Accent lacks entirely. But when it comes down to warranty coverage, the Hyundai Accent is the better choice in this side-by-side comparison.

     

    Summary

    While the 2016 Hyundai Accent may have a better overall warranty package, the 2016 Chevy Sonic is the better overall vehicle. With a better crash safety rating and a far better value, the 2016 Chevy Sonic proves the better choice for smart car buyers in this side-by-side comparison.
