Interior Dimensions & Configurations

Kia rio interiorThe 2020 Hyundai Accent comes as a standard sedan, while the Kia Rio offers two models. The first is the Kia Rio sedan and the second is the Kia Rio 5-Door, which is a hatchback.

Both the Hyundai Accent and the Kia Rio have 60/40 split-folding rear seats that make it easy to fit people, equipment, and more with a variety of configurations to organize it all. The 2020 Hyundai Accent and Kia Rio sedan both provide 13.7 feet of cargo room with the backseat raised. However, in the Kia Rio 5-Door hatchback version that number jumps to 17.4 cubic feet.

For weekend and longer-term travelers alike, the additional cubic feet in the 2020 Kia Rio 5-Door hatchback will provide more than enough space to store luggage, outdoor gear, and souvenirs. The extra room also makes daily errands and moving a breeze!

The Handy Hatchback: Kia Rio 5-Door

The biggest, most obvious difference between the 2020 Hyundai Accent and the Kia Rio 5-Door version is the trunk itself. With the Kia Rio 5-Door, the hatchback trunk lifts open like a fifth door. This configuration grants you more flexibility and access to cargo room than a sedan.

For drivers in search of a more versatile car for work, play, and everything in between, the Kia Rio 5-Door awaits, ready to exceed all expectations of a compact car. 

Standard Tech Specs

In the 2020 Kia Rio, a standard 7-inch touch-screen display keeps you connected with navigation and entertainment right at your fingertips. In comparison, the 2020 Hyundai Accent sedan comes standard with a 5-inch display, requiring you to upgrade to get at the additional two inches. 

Furthermore, standard Android Auto™ integration and Apple CarPlay® compatibility in the 2020 Kia Rio makes it easy to access your everyday apps directly through the touchscreen. Again, in the Hyundai Accent, you'll need to select a higher trim level to enjoy these tech features.

Safety: 2020 Kia Rio vs Hyundai Accent

Both the Kia Rio and the Hyundai Accent come with rear-view monitors that help you maneuver your vehicle in reverse. In the 2020 Kia Rio, however, the Rear-View Monitor w/ Dynamic Parking Guidance comes standard. This safety feature takes it up a notch with clear visuals that move with you to help you slide into that parallel spot with ease.

The standard Rear-View Monitor in the 2020 Hyundai Accent offers a view of the area behind your car but does not provide grid lines like the standard monitor in the Kia Rio.
