Hyundai Accent comes in two body styles, a five-door hatchback and a four-door sedan with a conventional trunk. As a subcompact, Accent competes against Toyota Yaris, Honda Fit, Ford Fiesta, Chevrolet Sonic, Mazda 2, and Nissan Versa.
According to the government, however, the Accent’s interior volume puts it in the larger compact class. Accent is longer in wheelbase and overall length than most of the competition, which means more room inside for people and cargo, and a smoother ride.
Accent was last redesigned as a 2012 model. 2013 brought more standard equipment and more options, including a power sunroof. For 2014, Accent gets more standard equipment: one-touch turn signals, sliding sunvisors, and a driver’s blind-spot mirror. The standard audio system has been upgraded for 2014 with improved voice recognition. New projector headlamps with LED accents and a welcome/escort function have been added to the five-door SE and four-door Premium Package models for 2014, along with a tilt/telescopic steering wheel and an automatic-up power window for the driver. A B&M Racing sport shifter is newly available in the five-door SE model.
We found the Accent very easy to drive. It’s responsive but not quick, smooth by subcompact standards but not luxurious. Everything in the cabin is intuitive and easy to operate. It’s an attractive design and the materials look nice.
Accent GLS sedan with 6-speed automatic has the same equipment. A GLS Premium Package upgrades it with rear disc brakes, premium cloth seats, upgraded interior trim, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel, cruise control, fog lights,16-inch alloy wheels with 195/50R16 tires, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, projector headlights, and Bluetooth hands-free connectivity.
