The hatchback body is gone, only leaving the sedan body style. There's only one available engine for the Accent: a 1.6-liter four-cylinder that cranks out a modest 130 horsepower and 119 pound-feet of torque. Entry-level SE trims come with a six-speed manual transmission as standard, but a six-speed automatic transmission is an extra $1,000. The mid-level SEL and range-topping Limited come with the automatic transmission as standard.
The base SE comes with 15-inch steel wheels, cloth upholstery, a six-way adjustable driver's seat, air conditioning, Bluetooth, power windows and door locks, remote keyless entry, a five-inch touchscreen, four audio speakers, an auxiliary input jack, and a USB port as standard.
While the SE isn't a barebones option, the range-topping Limited trim is the best value option. Over other trims, it adds 17-inch alloy wheels, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, LED taillights, heated exterior mirrors, a power sunroof, heated front seats, automatic climate control, voice recognition, a seven-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, a six-speaker audio system, and dual USB charging.
