HYUNDAI ACCENT,

Overview

Hyundai Accent is a prominent car which provides something for everyone's budget. Its 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine is as efficient as the car's base price would suggest. It's more fun to drive a slow car fast than to drive a fast car slow. If you just need a no-frills commuter mobile, the Accent's cabin is spacious and utilitarian; higher-spec SEL and Limited models come with more gear than the base car, but all three come with touch screen infotainment.

Inside

The Hyundai Accent's small size comes with sacrifices to comfort. The Accent is one of the easiest cars to simply get in and drive. The front seats are easy to access because they're close to the door opening, but those with limited flexibility might find them too low. In back, a wide rear door opening gives full access to the rear seat, the driver's seat is height-adjustable, so short and tall alike should find a good setting. The layout feels ergonomically correct and favors drivers of low to average height.

Driving

The Hyundai Accent is communicative, and although weak, the engine is responsive. The engine may sound like it has a frog in its throat, but it has good response. From a dead stop, the Accent can accelerate up to 60 mph in 8.5 seconds, which is fair for this segment. There's a mild amount of brake dive, and aggressive braking from high speeds can invoke a mild dose of tail wag. Our measured panic-stop distance from 60 mph of 129 feet is slightly longer than average. Despite vague and bound-up steering, our Accent SE feels nimble and stable.
