Hyundai's small car underwent few changes for 2013, which is not surprising given the well-received overhaul the Accent debuted only a model year earlier. Two body styles are offered: a four-door sedan available in one trim, GLS, and a five-door hatchback available in two, GS and SE. The latter of the hatchback trims features more standard options and a higher MSRP. For consumers wanting similar options to the SE, but equipped on the sedan, there is a “Premium Package” available for the GLS.
The most notable difference between the two body-styles is the amount of cargo space, with the hatchback having significantly more. However, both versions are dressed with a sporty, eye-catching exterior. The 1.6L DOHC Inline-4 engine - standard on all trims - is not for thrill seekers yet still provides sufficient power. The standard six-speed manual transmission and available six-speed automatic both achieve an impressive 37 MPG on the highway. Some new standards for 2013 include air-conditioning, keyless-entry, heated side mirrors and USB/Auxiliary ports. Though not new, the 10-year/100,000 mile limited powertrain warranty is the longest in the segment.Read more »
The GLS is the only trim buyers can choose if they do not want either of the higher-priced hatchback Accents. Besides the obvious, a significant difference between the two body-styles is the sedan being 10” longer in length than the hatchback. The GLS has cloth seats, power windows/door locks and a six-speaker AM/FM/SiriusXM/CD/MP3 audio system. Exterior standards include 14” steel wheels with wheel covers and body color matching heated side mirrors. The inside gets a tilt steering wheel, six-way adjustable driver seat and 60/40 split fold-down rear seatback for extra utility in transporting large items. Hyundai offers a Premium Package for the GLS that includes, among other features, premium cloth seats, a Bluetooth phone system and 16" alloy wheels.
The base trim of the the hatchback Accent, the GS is equipped almost identical to the GLS sedan. Though 10" shorter, the hatchback has 7.9" more of interior volume and over three times the amount of cargo space (with rear seatback folded) as the GLS. A rear wiper comes attached to the fifth-door and the antenna is mounted on the rear roof. The same 60/40 split fold-down rear seat in the sedan is also in the hatchback, but easier to fold with the extra elbow-room. Safety standards, equipped on the entire Accent lineup, include six airbags, electronic stability control and an anti-lock braking system.
While the sedan is offered with a Premium Package, the hatchback is offered with its' own premium trim, the SE. This includes all GS equipment plus rear-disc brakes, sport-tuned steering and audio/cruise controls mounted on a leather wrapped steering wheel. Upgrades in appearance result from 16" alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, and front fog lights. An optional sunroof package can be added over top of an interior cabin with such features as Bluetooth, premium cloth seats, and a sliding armrest storage box.
