This version of the Accent is a significant improvement over the previous generation. It is pleasant to drive with a relatively comfortable and quiet ride. Fuel economy is very good, but trails the best in its class. Unfortunately, ABS may be difficult to find, and its omission hurts braking performance. Our GS hatchback came well equipped for the money, but the higher end GLS is not a particularly great deal.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

What Owners Say

"I know it is a 4-cylinder, but it is embarrassing trying to pass someone and failing miserably. Also I am concerned that I may not be able to make a fast maneuver if there was a situation on the road that I needed to quickly get around."

KATHERINE O., TX (2010 Hyundai Accent)

"Handles great ."

MELODY C., CT (2010 Hyundai Accent)

Elizabeth S., CT (2010 Hyundai Accent)


Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Lots of road noise"

Anonymous, MA (2010 Hyundai Accent)

"Extremely loud cabin when on the road. Almost like the car is not insulated."

Anonymous, KY (2010 Hyundai Accent)

"This is not the car to take on a long trip, the ride is not smooth and I turn up the volume to hide the road noise."

Anonymous, CA (2010 Hyundai Accent)

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
