Hyundai Accent 2018 sedan
With its all-new platform, the fourth-generation Accent sedan (the hatchback has been dropped) sits lower, wider, and slightly longer than before. The changes bring increased passenger space for both the front and rear seats. Cabin technology makes a step forward, with the top-level Limited trim benefiting from a 7-inch touch-screen infotainment system, along with voice recognition, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. The 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic essentially carry over, although the engine is quieter. Despite the reworked suspension, the Accent still has a stiff ride. Handling is quite responsive.
