Need help deciding which Hyundai sedan is best for your commutes in the Downey, Anaheim, and Garden Grove area? Then you've come to the right place! At Norm Reeves Hyundai Superstore Cerritos, we want you to drive the vehicle that best suits your personal and driving style. This is why we created this 2019 Hyundai Accent vs. 2019 Hyundai Elantra comparison.

Below, you can see these two great models side by side, so you can make an educated decision on which is right for you. Let's get started by going over some performance specs.

2019 Hyundai Accent vs 2019 Hyundai Elantra - Performance


These two Hyundai sedans vary in performance, allowing you to choose something that suits your driving style easily.

Ideal for cruising city streets, the 2019 Accent is powered by the 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine. This generates up to 130 horsepower and 119 lb-ft of torque, making your daily commutes smooth. This engine is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission, although a 6-speed automatic is also available, for seamless, no-guess shifting.

In the 2019 Elantra, you'll find the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, perfect if you're looking for a little more oomph under the hood. This supplies you with an impressive horsepower of 147 and a torque of 132 lb-ft. Like the Accent, a 6-speed manual transmission is standard with a 6-speed automatic available.

Accent vs Elantra - Fuel Economy


One of the most important aspects to look into when in the market for a sedan is the efficiency. And while both models offer solid estimated mileage on both city and highway roads, there are some differences between the two models.

For the most bang for your buck, the Accent is your best bet. This gives you an estimated fuel economy of 28 MPG in the city and 37 MPG on the highway, leaving you a combined estimated mileage of 31 MPG.*

In the Elantra, you'll still find a fuel economy that will have you visiting the gas station less. However, because of its high-powered lineup, it does come in slightly less than the 2019 Accent. The estimated fuel economy in the 2019 Elantra comes in at 26 city/36 highway/29 combined MPG.*

Hyundai Accent vs Hyundai Elantra - Interior Room

When it comes to sedans, you know every inch counts. Fortunately, the interior space in both the Accent and Elantra are quite the same, meaning no matter which one you choose, you'll have plenty of room for you and yours. One slight difference, however, is that since the Elantra is a larger car, it does come with more trunk space, measuring in at 14.4 cubic feet, where the Accent is a tad less with 13.7 cubic feet.
