: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

The most affordable vehicle with a Hyundai nameplate, the long-running Accent is something of a legacy car for the brand. Back when it was all about economy, the Accent was a high-volume model that provided basic transportation to those who needed it. Hyundai has grown up considerably since then and so has the Accent, but its value mission continues undiluted.

What's New For 2015

The Accent receives a revised grille and minor trim updates.

Choosing Your Hyundai Accent

The subcompact Accent is available as a sedan or hatchback, both starting at just under $15,000. All models carry a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that's good for 137 horsepower. You have a choice of a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic with a fuel-saving Eco mode. With the automatic, the Accent achieves 27 mpg in city driving and a laudable 37 mpg when cruising the highway.

The Accent is technically a five-passenger vehicle, but we wouldn't plan on carrying more than four on a regular basis. Cargo space is a happier story. With 13.7 cubic feet of it, the sedan virtually matches some midsize cars. The hatchback gives you even more of course, up to 47.5 cubic-feet with the rear seat folded.

The sedan come sin GLS trim only, while the hatchback is available in either GS or Sport trim:

Hyundai Accent


Starts out as you would expect for this class with air conditioning, power windows and locks, 14-inch steel wheels, and a six-speaker sound system with satellite radio and CD player. Models equipped with the automatic transmission can get the Popular Equipment package with Bluetooth phone, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel with audio controls, cruise control and a sliding storage box in the center console. With all that in place, you can add the Style package, which includes rear disc brakes, projector headlamps with LED accents, premium cloth upholstery, piano black interior accents and machine-finish 16-inch alloy wheels.

The entry-level hatchback comes equipped like the GLS sedan, except with a rear wiper and standard cruise control on automatic-equipped models. There are no options packages available.

Adds to the hatchback the contents of the sedan's Popular Equipment and Style packages, plus a rear spoiler and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. An optional sunroof is exclusive to this trim. There are no further options on any Accent aside from the usual dealer-installed accessories.

CarsDirect Tip

If you're looking at the sedan, the automatic transmission is a no-brainer in our view. It yields slightly better fuel economy and gives you access to the option packages, which furnish a lot of content for the money. As for the hatchback, we recommend upgrading to the Sport as the GS isn't eligible for any upgrades besides the automatic.
