Hyundai Accent Overview

The entry-level Accent subcompact is available as 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 Sport hatchback in our tests. Though the front cabin is roomy enough, the cramped rear seat 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 average, but we can no longer recommend the Accent because it scored a Poor in the IIHS small-overlap crash test.
