However, many experts and customers acknowledge that the Toyota Vios has a more attractive and dynamic exterior design with larger wheels than the other. Even the fog lights or rear spoiler of the Vios are also decorated better and more beautifully. Meanwhile, the Accent in sedan form is also appealing, but it is more conservative than Hyundai’s Fluidic design.

In terms of the interior, all versions of the Toyota Vios (except 1.3 MT) have touch screens under the B-Sedan segment’s standards. Furthermore, the Vios has better USB, AUX ports, Bluetooth connectivity, AM / FM radio, a hands-free calling app, and better audio entertainment than the Hyundai Accent variants.  Meanwhile, the new Hyundai Accent has only a 3.8-inch LCD radio.
