2009 Hyundai Accent: Inexpensive, Fuel Efficient, Reliable

By KBB.com Editors on December 1, 2008 10:57 AM
With a starting price of $10,665 (including a $695 freight charge), Hyundai says its 2009 Accent GS is the least-expensive new car available in the U.S. This "three door" Accent comes only with a five-speed manual transmission and gets 33 miles per gallon in the U.S. government's highway test. The 2008 Accent was rated "Most Dependable Sub-Compact Car" in J.D. Power and Associates' vehicle dependability study. The '09 Accent's starting price is almost $1000 less than it was last year, yet it retains all the same features including a 110-horsepower four-cylinder engine. Adding an automatic transmission bumps the starting price to more than $12,700. Later in the year, Hyundai will offer a "Blue" version of the Accent GS that will be tuned and modified to get better fuel mileage, produce fewer emissions and will cost no more than the regular Accent.
