Cartersville drivers who are in the market for a new sedan have a tough choice between the 2020 Hyundai Elantra and the 2021 Hyundai Accent. Both models offer a spacious interior for passengers and cargo alike, but the difference between the Elantra and Accent engine options may have some Kennesaw drivers picking one over the other. Compare the Hyundai Elantra vs. Hyundai Accent with Terry Reid Hyundai below to see which is bigger: the Accent or Elantra, and the differences between each engine option.

Elantra & Accent: Interior Dimensions

Many Woodstock drivers who are looking for a new sedan find themselves asking “Which is bigger: the Accent or Elantra?” Both models are considered compact sedans, with the Hyundai Accent being officially rated as a subcompact model. This means that both models are built to easily maneuver Kennesaw roads and fit into tight parking spaces. Potential shoppers won’t need to worry about their available cargo and passenger space, though. While the Hyundai Elantra is technically a larger vehicle than the Accent, they share similar passenger and cargo space dimensions.
