The Hyundai Accent is available as either a sedan or a five-door hatchback. Either body style is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine which makes 137 horsepower. A six-speed manual transmission is standard on the base SE trim level; an automatic is optional on the SE and included with the Value Edition sedan and Sport hatchback. Fuel economy estimates for an Accent with a manual transmission are 27 miles per gallon city, 37 highway, and 31 combined according to the EPA; automatic transmission estimates subtract one from each of those numbers.
As noted above, two trim levels are offered for each body style. The SE is the base trim for both and is equipped with necessities such as:
- Air conditioning
- Power locks, windows, and side mirrors
- An AM/FM/SiriusXM radio with a CD player, USB port and 6 speakers
The SE sedan has a starting MSRP of $15,580 (all prices listed here include an $835 delivery fee) and the automatic transmission adds an even $1,000; hatchback SEs start at $15,830, with the automatic costing an additional $1,200. The Value Edition sedan adds alloy wheels, rear disc brakes, Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control and a multifunction steering wheel for a total price of $17,285 – the Sport hatchback incorporates these and adds a number of interior upgrades at a sticker price of $18,330.
