If You’re Considering a 2013 Hyundai Accent Near Boulder…

The compact hatchback has become one of the most popular vehicle segments on the market in recent years, and one of the models on Boulder drivers’ collective radar has been the 2013 Hyundai Accent. Available as a 5-door hatchback model as well as a standard sedan, features like iPhone integration, fold-down rear seats, and an optional Premium Package have made the Accent a contender in the subcompact class. However, Boulder drivers don’t just want to settle for a decent hatchback option—they want a model that will exceed their expectations, and the 2013 Honda Fit is superior to the Accent in key categories. In terms of dependability, features, and even cabin and cargo space, the 2013 Honda Fit easily wins out.

With constant advances in car technology, discerning drivers want to ensure that the vehicle they choose is going to be packed with state-of-the-art features. Both the 2013 Honda Fit and the 2013 Hyundai Accent come standard with features like iPod integration and full power accessories, but only the Fit offers steering wheel-mounted cruise controls, a stereo anti-theft system, and a vehicle theft deterrent system at no extra cost.

While the 2013 Accent provides 47.5 cubic feet of max cargo volume and 90.1 cubic feet of passenger volume, the 2013 Honda Fit provides a more spacious 57.3 cubic feet and 90.8 cubic feet in the same categories, respectively. The Fit also comes with standard cargo area tie-downs and underseat storage, which you won’t find on the Accent unless you choose to upgrade.
