Korean auto manufacturer Hyundai is known for its range of economical small cars. Their compact series of cars come in four and five door models, combining convenience with reliability, and has made them the fourth largest auto company in the world. The Accent is Hyundai’s smallest subcompact car and they have used all of their experience to create an affordable car that doesn’t sacrifice on design or comfort.
The body shape makes the Accent look more like a small sedan than a standard small car and the interior is more spacious with plenty of leg room in the back. This means that there is also plenty of room in the rear of the five door model which has been designed to make it easier to load and unload. There is also innovative use of the storage areas in the cabin like the drop down sunglasses holder, map pockets and arm console storage spaces.
The Accent is also loaded with the technology expected from a modern car, like USB and Bluetooth connectivity, steering wheel controls and a fully integrated audio system. Technology is also incorporated into the safety design with traction control, electronic stability control and anti lock braking. The safety features of the Accent are state of the art and the six airbags, including side impact and side curtain airbags, are a part of the standard package.
The Accent is powered by a 1.6 liter Gamma GDI engine that has enhanced torque and fuel efficiency and produces 138 hp. This can be paired with either a six speed manual or automatic transition to make the best use of the power while still getting up to 37 mpg on the highway. If you really want to get a feel of the vehicle, we suggest a test drive. You can read all the reviews you want, and learn about each and every feature. But the best way to know if this is the car for you is to drive. How do you go about doing this?

With prices for the basic Accent starting at $14,500 the 2013 Hyundai Accent offers big car value at a small car price.
