Both feature all-new styling, with new bodylines, larger headlamps and higher-mounted tail lamps helping to give the car a more upscale look.

Hyundai's Accent may be best known as the cheapest car in America, but for 2012, the automaker has decided to step away from that pursuit with its entry-level compact. The Accent offers quite a bit of bang for the buck in a compact car, and its new 1.6L engine is both relatively powerful and very efficient. At right around $13k, the Accent is a great value, with more options than what you'd get on a comparably priced Ford Fiesta, Honda Fit, Toyota Yaris or MAZDA2.
