The Hyundai Accent 2023 offers a stylish design despite its low price. Just because a car is cheap doesn’t mean it looks cheap. It’s earned a spot on our top 5 list because we admire it so much. A continuously variable automatic transmission and a 120 hp four-cylinder engine are included on all (CVT) models. Fascinating as it is, it gets the job done and gets it done while consuming fuel. The interior, while essentially nondescript, offers contemporary amenities and even a few luxury items.
The Limited model with touchscreen navigation, heated seats and push-button start is under $21,000. Regardless of the trim you choose, the Accent’s polished, professional appearance saves you the embarrassment of being revealed as a dime.
(Prices and Specifications):
2022 Hyundai Accent starts from $17,740.
What has changed for 2022?
A new anti-theft immobilizer will be standard on the Accent’s base SE and mid-range SEL models in 2022. Unfortunately, Hyundai has announced that the final model year of the Accent will be 2022 and that the six-speed manual has been dropped from the Accent lineup.
Price and which one to buy?
– $17,740 SE
– $18,995 SEL
We’d go with the mid-range SEL trim over the base SE because it adds a set of premium custom fog lights, auto headlights, aluminum headlights, rims, rear-view mirrors Heated exteriors, a larger 7.0” touchscreen entertainment systems.
The SE version is slimmed down and seems to be missing many of the features that many car buyers might find necessary.
Performance, Engine, transmission, and others: -
The Accent’s front wheels are powered by a 120 hp 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). We haven’t tested the new four-cylinder for 2020, but we expect similar performance to the 2018 and 2019 130hp models. It’s clear that smoothness trumps driving skills. Still, the Accent feels alive, its compact body is easy to throw around corners and even rewards. The suspension does a good job smoothing out rough roads, but hard bumps cause vibration in the cabin.
Fuel efficiency and actual MPG: -
Accent meets the requirements for good fuel economy expected from small cars. Fuel efficiency has increased with the new four-cylinder engine, reaching a combined rating of 36 MPG.
Connectivity and entertainment: -
The 7.0-inch touchscreen system that comes with SEL and Limited models is more modern than the standard 5.0-inch touchscreen radio and features USB,
and auxiliary ports for connecting devices to the interface. In addition, the larger screen is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as a second USB port on the back of the center console. While SiriusXM Satellite Radio continued in the 7.0-inch touch screen, both systems have Bluetooth phone connection.
Driver-assistance and safety features: -
Some of the Accent’s competitors don’t come standard with driver-assistance technologies like automatic emergency braking and forward collision warning
safety features include: -
Forward collision warning option available Automatic emergency braking is possible.
