    I'd pick the Rio. Got to check out the Accent's interior, IMO it looks cheap.

    For 30k I can easily do minor mods to make the Rio a bit quicker. Maybe not quicker than the Accent but make it better compared
    to stock.

    I'd get the Accent. It's more powerful and efficient. The Rio has a lot of good features, but it's let down by its engine. As for the Accent not having a lot of features, it's always easier and cheaper to add interior/exterior mods to the Accent (such as projector headlamps, better mags, better sound system, etc.) than to make the Rio's engine more powerful and efficient.

    No mods on the Rio's engine will equal the loads of Torque and fuel economy the 1.6 CRDI VGT has to give.

    I'd do projector retrofits, swap into 18 inchers and do a complete LED conversion than mess up a stock gasoline engine that is already effed-up to begin with (effed up because of the effed up actual fuel economy figures).

    Pshaw. Skip the 1.4. I'd get the base Rio 1.2 and modify that sucker. With the right mags, it'll look just as good, and it's already faster...

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...
