As stated in the above table, the Toyota Vios is much broader but only within a few millimeters, so it is doubtful that they vary considerably in interior space. There is even only a small difference in the cargo space volume (13 liters).

So generally, none of these cars stays remarkable in terms of sizes.

The Toyota Vios's fierce-like appearance with the medium dimension.

When it comes to style, though, we prefer the Toyota Vios because of its brand new design. The Hyundai Accent in sedan form may have an attractive appearance; however, its new design is a bit too self-opinionated according to the previous Hyundai's Fluidic's design.

Higher trim variants of the Vios also present more special features like bigger allowable wheels, smog-lights, and rear spoiler.

The Hyundai Accent's outlook can attract lots of first-time buyers.

Hyundai Accent Vs Toyota Vios: Engine & Performance

In this field, the Vios fall inferior to the Accent. Like its antecedent, the Philippines-spec Hyundai Accent offers two choices of engine: the 1.4-liter producing the same output as the Toyota Vios's 1.3-liter and a much more powerful 1.6-liter diesel engine capable of generating 128Hp/260Nm of torque.

The 1.6-liter diesel Accent is more robust than the 1.5-liter engine of the Toyota Vios, producing only about 106 hp and 140 Nm of torque.

It can be seen that being among the most striking Philippines' diesel-powered sedans, such power level for a B-segment sedan has already turned the Hyundai Accent to be one of the leading models in terms of both accelerations and strength.

One more controversial point between the Toyota Vios and the Hyundai Accent is that the Toyota Vios has unexpectedly changed from a traditional automatic to a CVT transmission. That may lead to a lot of problems/situations that you may not want to witness when experiencing a new engine.

Nonetheless, plenty of people liked the brand-new Vios's CVT transmission, but a lot of others do not.

Hyundai Accent Vs Toyota Vios: Safety Features

In terms of safety, the Toyota Vios is equipped with a whole of seven standard bags, including curtain airbags, dual front airbags, side airbags, and knee airbags. This is a great advance offering by Toyota Philippines.

For comparison, the Hyundai Accent comes with a variant with completely no airbags. A big number of customers still favor it due to the lower cost, however, this Accent's variant did undergo the safety test of the Program for Assessment of Latin New Cars, and the result was awful. 

Besides, in terms of safety equipment, the Accent doesn't come with an anti-lock braking system, stability control, or EBD, which are all currently the most noticeable characteristics of Toyota Vios.

While the Hyundai Accent variants cost less than the Vios’s, the Toyota’s sedan is relatively a more worthy consideration for different purposes. You can either use it as a family’s private transport or a commercial passenger car.

For any vehicle, security is the most priority. In case you are the one who often takes the risk and prefers the raw horsepower more than airbags and other safety equipment, you may want to go with a CRDi Hyundai Accent.
