Hyundai Elantra While not much larger than the accent, the Elantra offers similar room, but a sportier look and feel, as well as more power.

Hard to tell without listening directly. If the ticking sound is coming from the upper parts of the engine it is likely caused by clogged hydraulic valve lifters. There are very small passages for the oil to enter the lifters and when they get clogged the lifters don't expand enough to tighten the valve lash.
If that is the case in your engine you may want to investigate about cleaning procedures.
