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.
Fresh from its complete makeover last year, the 2013 Hyundai Accent clearly displays the Korean car manufacturer's ability to inject seductive styling and innovative technology into an affordable, fuel efficient and fun-to-drive package. Slotted to do battle with the Honda Fit, Chevrolet Sonic and Ford Fiesta, the Accent's affordable arsenal includes bright exterior paint choices, a high-powered audio system, a full suite of standard safety equipment including six airbags, and a roomy interior with the most cargo space of any sub-compact car. If the stylish 2-tone interior, smooth ride and 37-mpg highway fuel economy rating doesn't seal the deal, the Accent's standard 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty likely will.
