Hyundai Accent Overview

Hyundai's entry-level subcompact is a basic yet sensible sedan or hatchback. The sedan with the very smooth and responsive automatic attained 31 mpg overall, and we got 32 mpg for the stick-shift hatchback in our tests. Though the front cabin is roomy enough, the rear is a bit cramped, which is on par for this class. Handling is fairly responsive, but the ride is rather jittery. Noise levels are elevated but not offensive. Standard safety gear includes six air bags and active front head restraints. The controls are straightforward. Reliability has been above average. We can no longer recommend the Accent because it scored a poor in the IIHS small-overlap crash test.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
