Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
The Hyundai Accent for 2014 gains sliding sun-visor extensions, a one-touch triple turn signal and a driver's-side blind-spot mirror. The SE Premium Package adds a tilt/telescopic steering wheel, projector-style headlights with LED accents and a driver's-side auto-up window.
The Hyundai Accent for 2013 sees the base GLS model with a manual transmission gain air conditioning, power side mirrors and a 6-speaker stereo with satellite radio and iPod/USB port. Remote keyless entry and heated side mirrors are standard on all trims, while the SE adds an available power sunroof.
For 2010, Hyundai introduces its new "Blue" Edition engine to the Accent lineup. The new engine is up to nine-percent more fuel efficient than last year's powerplant, providing mileage as high as 36 mpg on the highway. Other new features include iPod/USB ports on all radios; standard steering wheel audio controls, sunroof and cruise control on SE and the availability of ABS on the GS trim.
For 2009, cruise control is added to the Popular Equipment Package, and the SE Premium Package now includes a power sunroof. Those with an eye on pump prices and their wallet will be happy to know that fuel economy estimates are up over those for last year's model.
All models gain a three-month free subscription to XM Satellite Radio, a tire-pressure monitor system and an auxiliary audio input jack (late availability). SE models with the manual transmission receive a sporty B&M Racing short-throw sport shifter.
Hyundai's new Accent separates itself from most of the competition in several significant ways beyond its warranty and much-improved quality, including slightly stronger standard power output, more standard safety equipment and 35 (dealer- or port-installed) accessories. The three-door models also boast the best interior volume of their class, even more than Honda's size-larger three-door Civic.
The Accent may be Hyundai's entry-level model, but it sure doesn't look the part. Seductive styling and a bevy of standard features compliment the car's miserly yet peppy 4-cylinder engine, the latter backed by one of the industry's best standard warranties. The competition is clearly feeling the heat as we've seen recent improvements in both styling and content made to cars like the Nissan Versa, Honda Fit and Ford Fiesta. Of course, we think the Accent still has the advantage over many rivals in the area of looks, features and ride comfort. From its bright colors to its high-powered standard audio system to its rich 2-tone interior, the Accent scores big in the categories most important to younger buyers. Did we mention the 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty?

"Traded in a 2009 Mazda 3 for this vehicle. The gas mileage is truly incredible. We are getting 37-38 mpg consistently. The bluetooth provides a nice upgrade, as well. Vast trunk space for such a small car, too! It was exactly what my family of 4 was looking for."

"I drive over 3,400 miles a month, just for work. Then, on the weekends my wife and I take My Accent for our weekly shopping. I own a 2010 Town & Country and we prefer to take my Accent. I recommend this car to anyone that needs affordable reliable transportation. You can drive long distances in relative comfort. I was suprised. Good on gas too! I average over 40 MPG!!"

"I'm going to start off by saying this car is great for its class. It's no BMW, but i love it. Easiest way of writing a review is the pros and cons Pros: -Awesome gas mileage. 30 MPG combined for me (daily commute: 60% city, 40% highway). Also I pay about 35$ to fill it up and a tank will last me about a week and a half. -Handles well, no complaints there. -acceleration is okay -affordable -bluetooth is convenient There are no REAL cons with this car. It's more just me being picky but here's what I don't like. Cons: -Cup holders are low, hard to find in the dark. -Small interior, no elbow room if you have a passenger in the front seat. -when you extend the center armrest it blocks one of the cup holders. -my leg blocks the window controls and lock/unlock button Overall it's a great car. Just little things here and there that kind of bug me. I would for sure recommend this car to anyone who wants a reliable car, with awesome gas mileage and a budget under $16,000. inconveniences"
