Editor's Overview

The 2018 Accent is Hyundai’s least expensive car, a subcompact sedan that competes with rivals like the Honda Fit, Toyota Yaris, Ford Fiesta and Chevrolet Sonic. The Hyundai Accent is all-new for 2018, and for its 5th-generation revamp gains upscale looks, key technology like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, more safety features and slightly improved fuel economy.

Tiny and Unique: Affordable car that's fits me!

The only criticism I have about my car is that the engine is very small that it's not able to accelerate very fast when needing to. Other than that it fits my personality well! The exterior is clean and non distracting or even similar to other vehicles. The interior is SO sporty that I feel I'm in such an expensive car. I love my accent.

My car is very reliable, and I trust it getting me to where I need to go safely.

I absolutely love my Hyundai accent. It is safe and reliable. I have only ever had one problem with it, and that was on my first yearly inspection I needed to replace the tires already. The tires the car came with were really poor quality. But since that, I have had no problems and I am very satisfied.

Simple car is what we got

We bought our Hyundai Accent in May 2018. We love the great gas mileage that we're getting. It's around 40 MPG. We also are thrilled at the low cost of the vehicle and that we good get it with very few bells and whistles. A simple car is what we want and what we got.
