August 3rd, 2019 by

At Wilson Hyundai, we’ll put our customer service up against anyone’s–and the same goes for the cars we sell. Hyundai makes reliable, attractive, fun-to-drive cars that represent the best value in the auto market, and few manufacturers can match their features and quality. Today, let’s take a look at how Hyundai’s compact sedan, the 2019 Hyundai Accent, matches up against one of its competitors, the 2019 Nissan Versa.


2019 Hyundai Accent vs 2019 Nissan Accent: Performance

Both the 2019 Hyundai Accent and 2019 Nissan Versa run off a 1.6L 4-cylinder engines, meaning both will get very good gas mileage. But the Accent dramatically outperforms the Versa, delivering 130 horsepower compared to the Versa’s meager 109, a substantial difference you’ll notice when it’s time to merge onto the Brandon area highways. And despite its weaker engine, the Versa is less efficient than the Accent.

2019 Hyundai Accent vs 2019 Nissan Accent: Safety

The 2019 Hyundai Accent and 2019 Nissan Versa both offer great smart safety tools and driver assistance features, perfect for helping minimize the potential for accidents. But if an accident does occur, you’ll want a car that’s built to keep you safe, and only one of the two is. The 2019 Hyundai Accent was named an IIHS Top Safety Pick and the Nissan Versa was not–the IIHS gave the Nissan model a “Poor” rating for driver side collisions, including a “Poor” mark for is structure and safety cage. Sensors and backup cameras are terrific, but they can only do so much.

2019 Hyundai Accent vs 2019 Nissan Accent: Value

Both of these two compact sedans are a great value–some of the most affordable cars on the market. The Versa has a lower starting price point, but it also lacks the performance and safety plusses of the Accent. Not only that, the Hyundai closes the gap with America’s best warranty: An unmatched 10 years and 100,000 miles of powertrain coverage in addition to a 5-year, 60,000-mile basic warranty. The Versa only gives you 5 years and 60,000 on the powertrain, and just a 3-year, 36,000 mile basic.
