Hyundai Accent

Compared to the previous generation Hyundai Accent which was gradually beginning to show its age after all these years, the new Accent sports some serious alterations to its exterior design. The all-new design has the same fluidic design silhouette as its predecessor, however, it now looks much sharper and contemporary than ever before.

The new Hyundai Accent now comes with increased levels of fit and finish, which do go well with the revised interior design. Even from the inside as well, the car feels plusher and richer compared to the model it has replaced.

The Hyundai Accent is being offered with a petrol and a diesel engine, however, it is the latter which feels much punchier to drive. In fact, the performance outputs of the 1.6-litre engine in the Accent makes it the most powerful car in its segment.

Toyota Wigo

The first thing that makes the Wigo a hit is its compact structure. While it is agile and easy to manoeuvre around the city, it makes parking in crunch places cakewalk for the driver whether experienced or amateur. As a driver, you don’t have to possess expert car parking skills because you’d be able to park it just right every single time.

A potent drivetrain under the hood that performs quite well. Aside from these, there are plenty of interior features and amenities that will impress you. This includes touchscreen infotainment system, multi-function steering wheel, ABS, dual-airbags and an array of storage spaces for stress-free travelling.

With satisfactory outside looks, the automaker has taken the style game to an altogether another level with the TRD variant. This variant comes with a TRD body kit that comprises of a front lip spoiler, TRD decals, side skirts, rear bumper extension with a diffuser and a rear chrome badge.

Hyundai Accent

Hyundai has made the new Accent feel rich in terms of fit and finish, however, the lack of a number of modern comfort and convenience features do make the new Accent feel a bit dated. The absence of primary features like a touchscreen infotainment system, automatic climate control, push-button start and many more still does not create a strong impression in its favour.

While the new Accent feels engaging to drive with decent driving dynamics and powerful engines, the rear seat cabin of the new Accent falls short on space and comfort. The shoulder room is at a premium, due to which seating for three passengers at the rear is quite a squeeze.

While the light steering setup is a boon in urban driving conditions, the same setup at higher speeds too makes driving a bit less exciting. The steering does weigh a bit more at higher speeds, but not enough from a driving enthusiast’s point of view.

 

Toyota Wigo

Being a cheap contender in the segment, the Wigo comes with less durable materials inside the cabin. The cabin lacks premium touch you’d expect from Toyota. Interestingly, there are no air bands for the windscreen and foot.

Fuel economy is below par considering the market standards. Expect it to yield around 9 -11kmpl in the city.
