You might not expect a lot from a subcompact, but you'd be wrong. Sure, there are some models out there that are fragile flowers, with around 100 horsepower and a curb weight just north of a feather. But the 2018 Kia Rio and the 2018 Hyundai Accent offer more punch, power, and performance than what you might expect from the small, affordable subcompact class. We'll do a comparison to find the ultimate in a vehicle class that is ideal for city driving, long trips or college students.
With the Kia Rio, you get superior transmission options and performance, with 138 HP for all three available transmissions – six-speed automatic, six-speed manual and Idle Stop and Go (ISG) with Eco Package. The Accent has both of the six-speed transmissions but not the ISG Package which helps optimize fuel efficiency, and it also has a downturn in performance to 137 HP.
