Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

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

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

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

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

What you must know before buying the Hyundai Accent

  • 2020s available; 2019s sold out
  • Bonuses: $750 retail cash
  • Finance: 0.0% + $500 cash
  • Lease: No offer again this month

The subcompact Hyundai Accent:

The 2020 Hyundai Accent is in dealer showrooms. This model features an all-new continuously variable transmission, which results in a 3 mpg boost in fuel economy. As for the 2019s, they're now gone.

The current offers are in place through December 2, 2019. There is always a chance we'll see an update for Thanksgiving and Black Friday, so please check back.

All offers vary by region; our examples are for California.

Bonuses for the taking:

Hyundai offers $750 in retail bonus cash on 2020 models purchased from dealer stock.

Please keep in mind that customers who choose Hyundai’s promotional financing offers do not qualify for the bonus. That said, you can still claim your cash and have Hyundai finance your vehicle. You won’t be eligible for the lowest rates, however.

Interest-free financing for 48 months:

Choose a 2020 Hyundai Accent and you may qualify for 0.0-percent APR financing for 48 months, 1.9-percent for 60 months or 3.9-percent financing for 72 months. A $500 finance cash offer applies here as well.

Hyundai’s financing offers are exceptional, as they beat the industry average and come in below retail rates.

No lease deal again this month:

The last time we saw a lease on an Accent was two years ago. We are not sure whether we will see one again.

In any case, you would be better off purchasing your Accent as you will probably own your car outright in four or five years if you opt for the Hyundai Motor Finance auto loan deal. And with Hyundai’s 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty in place, your Accent is backed like few other small cars are.

2020 Hyundai Accent Overview

Matthew Keegan
Contributing Editor

What's New

The 2020 Hyundai Accent returns with changes to the engine that yield slightly less power but more fuel efficiency. The engine is now available with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), replacing the previous six-speed automatic gearbox.

Choosing Your Hyundai Accent

Hyundai offers the subcompact Accent in three trims: SE, SEL, and Limited. Pricing starts at $16,125 including destination for the SE and reaches $20,230 for the Limited.

Engine Choices

The Hyundai Accent is only available with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that now makes 120 horsepower and 113 pound-feet of torque. These figures are down by 10 hp and six lb-ft of torque over last year.

The SE comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission, but the CVT is available for $1,100. The SEL and Limited come standard with the CVT and the manual isn't available.

The slight power loss is worth it when you consider the noticeable gains in fuel economy. With the manual gearbox, the Accent achieves an EPA-estimated 29 miles per gallon city, 39 mpg highway, and 33 combined, which are gains of one, two, and two mpg over the outgoing model. With the CVT, it gets 33/41/36 mpg (city/highway/combined), which is up by five, three, and four mpg over last year's Accent with the automatic.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Accent seats up to five, but four is more realistic. The height-adjustable front seats are a big help for taller passengers, who benefit from ample head and leg room. There isn’t much bolstering to be had, however, and the seats aren’t as grippy as we’d like.

Cargo volume measures 13.7 cubic feet, which is above average and beats what some larger sedans offer. The split fold-down rear bench seat extends storage space considerably. You may want a hatchback, but this arrangement is a decent alternative for the utility-minded owner.

Safety Features

The Accent Limited is the only trim to get any advanced active safety features, but even the range-topper only gets automatic emergency braking and forward collision warning. You won’t find features like adaptive cruise control or lane keeping assist on the options sheet.


Hyundai equips the Accent with a 5-inch color touchscreen to start, but the SEL and Limited get a 7-inch unit. Bluetooth and one USB port are included, but you need the larger touchscreen to get Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and another USB port.

SE - From $16,125

The Accent SE comes with halogen headlights, 15-inch steel wheels, a chrome grille, and keyless entry. Inside, the base model has cloth seats, a four-speaker audio system, and a six-way manually adjustable driver seat.

SEL - From $18,480

For just $1,255 more than the SE equipped with the CVT, the SEL trim adds many worthwhile features for the price. Automatic headlights, fog lights, heated side mirrors, and 15-inch alloy wheels are included. The rear drum brakes of the SE give way to four-wheel disc brakes. Inside, this trim gets the 7-inch touchscreen, the additional USB port, an exterior temperature display, and a six-speaker audio system.

Limited - From $20,230

The Accent Limited contradicts the model’s budget aspirations, as it adds several features common to more expensive cars, including a power sunroof, LED lights all around, a hands-free trunk, and the aforementioned active safety features. It also adds 17-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats, automatic temperature control, and push button start to the list of standard equipment.

CarsDirect Tip

Budget-minded shoppers may find the 2020 Hyundai Accent compelling. We'd start our search with the SEL for the upgraded infotainment system and standard CVT, but the Limited adds several premium amenities and the active safety features.
