Hyundai’s Accent for 2013 maybe the company’s most affordable car, but that doesn’t mean the Accent is cheap or undesirable. Available as either a sedan or versatile 5-door, the 2013 Hyundai...

Small but perfect fuel efficient vehicle!

2013 Hyundai Accent GS

I love my Hyundai Accent! I have had this car for nearly 3 years and its performance is very good! I am able to get nearly 30 miles to the gallon which is an awesome perk! It is very roomy for how small the car looks from the outside. My biggest complaint about this vehicle is there is not very much storage on the inside besides the glove department and trunk. I recently just had to put a new engine in the car because it was overheating but I believe that was from the previous owner not taking quality care of the vehicle. It is an overall very reliable vehicle that I can always depend on. The seats are very comfortable and I am very satisfied how easily I can get in and out since it is very close to the ground. At the same time, since it is so close to the ground when you drive at speeds higher than 50 mph it is very loud inside the vehicle. At the same time, this car accelerates very quickly which is great for people that drive on interstates/freeways. Some features the car has include: an AUX, XM radio, cruise control, and USB outlets. My favorite feature is the AUX because I like being able to plug a cord in and listen to podcasts/music from my phone. This car is very reliable and I know I can always depend on it to get where I need to be whether that is down the road or halfway across the country!

Hyundai accent, the little car that could.

2013 Hyundai Accent SE

My Hyundai accent has largely been a reliable first car. I first chose to purchase it because it was, at the time, very affordable compared to other cars. Overall, the vehicle has performed adequately, although there have been a few issues. One of the sensors had to be replaced within the first year and was likely defective from the factory. Otherwise the other maintenance this car has needed has come with age. It is a small car which is good for city driving, but it is very low to the ground which makes it an awful car for winter driving. I can usually rely on the car to function properly, but I have had starter and battery issues as well. The features are really basic, although the Bluetooth connection is nice. One thing that would make it better is a rearview camera, which this model does not have (probably too old). Overall, like I stated above, it is a good starter car.

Good, basic car with nice gas mileage but acceleration and road noise issues.

2013 Hyundai Accent SE

I bought my Accent in 2013 because I was working about 35 miles away from home and wanted a car with decent gas mileage. I got that but also got a dependable car that has been easy to maintain and is about to hit 100,000 miles. My complaints are that the car feels pretty 'plastic' both inside and out. I have been hit twice and have had significant damage because of how flimsy the front end is. The engine runs well and gets me where I need to go but it literally putters and the cabin noise is significant. The car does well on the highway but there is a small delay with acceleration and it's so loud that it's hard to have a conversation and include someone in the back seat. I have since stopped commuting the 35 miles and have gotten even better gas mileage in town and overall I think it's a great little car but not one with any real sense of luxury or style.
