Hyundai Accent New Car Reviews & Price Guide

Spacious yet compact, Hyundai's Accent is available as a hatchback or light sedan. A Light-segment competitor for the Ford Fiesta and Mazda2, the Accent can accommodate five passengers and comes in two models: Active and SR.

A choice of two engines is available, a 1.4-litre petrol and 1.6-litre petrol. There are also two transmissions to choose from, a six-speed manual or six-speed Sports Automatic.

The Hyundai Accent comes standard with driver and passenger airbags, head and side airbags, traction control, electronic brake distribution, Bluetooth as well as cruise-control and six-speaker stereo. The up-spec SR comes with a long features list, a little unexpected at this price point.

Wheel sizes are 14-inch steel or 16-inch alloys, depending upon the model.
