Driving Impression

Editor:

“”

The Hyundai Accent drives as expected. Neither sporty nor luxurious, it feels like a no-nonsense front-wheel-drive subcompact.

The Accent rides comfortably on smooth roads, winding or straight. Potholes and rippled highways can be rough going, however, the suspension designed for simplicity, space efficiency and, most important, low cost. The electric steering in the Sport models offers the best feel.

Fuel economy is an EPA-estimated 26/37 mpg City/Highway with the popular automatic transmission, 27/38 mpg with the manual gearbox. That’s comparable for other subcompacts, except the more-expensive Honda Fit, which delivers significantly better fuel economy.

Accent’s 1.6-liter engine is rated at 138 hp and 123 foot-pounds of torque. It has to be revved when acceleration performance is needed, but the best fuel economy comes when taking it easy.

Accelerating from a standstill to 60 mph

An Accent with the 6-speed automatic is capable of accelerating from in 10 seconds, a sluggish performance easily beaten by nearly every car on the road, including electric cars. And that’s with just a driver on board. Add a couple of passengers and it’s taxed.

The manual gearbox is a nice option with its light clutch effort but the automatic works well and includes a Sport mode and manual shifting control.

Walk Around

The Accent is a nice-looking subcompact. The five-door hatchback is especially handsome with its tidier dimensions, but the four-door sedan is attractive as well.

The 2015 model year brought revised styling. This generation of the Accent was introduced as a 2012 model. The design has stood the test of time well, and it echoes the styling theme of other Hyundai models.

Interior Overview

“”

The Accent fits a lot of drivers with its roomy cabin. It’s long on legroom and headroom for driver and front passenger. The seats adjust for height, a nice feature in this class. The steering wheel does not telescope, though it tilts. The Sport versions have the best seats but none of them are comfortable for long trips.

Some of the plastic trim on the doors and center console appear to have been selected primarily for their low cost, but overall the Accent is finished better than expected for an aging subcompact. No sunroof is available.

The back seats are reasonably roomy for the class. They flip down easily for added cargo space. In this regard, the hatch offers the best utility.

Cubby storage is good, with a big glovebox and various bins, including a tray for phones.

Model Lineup

The 2016 Hyundai Accent comes in two body styles: five-door hatchback and four-door sedan. All models are equipped with the same 1.6-liter engine with a choice of manual or 6-speed automatic transmission.

Summary

The Hyundai Accent remains a good choice among subcompacts. It is a bit dated, however, so shop it against other products to ensure the best value.
