2016 Hyundai Accent Buyer's Guide

After a mild refresh for the 2015 model year, the impressive 2016 Hyundai Accent arrives relatively unchanged. The direct descendant of the very first Hyundai model to be offered in the United States back in 1985—the Hyundai Excel—the Accent replaced the Excel in 1994. Unlike its predecessor, though, the Accent has an outstanding reputation for reliability. In fact, J.D. Power and Associates named the 2008 Hyundai Accent the most dependable sub-compact car in its class. The updates for 2015 brought a new treatment for the grille, headlights and taillights, as well as some changes to the standard and optional equipment rosters. One of the most affordable cars offered in the USA, the 2016 Hyundai Accent represents an outstanding value for its price—as do all of Hyundai’s models.

What makes it move?

The 2016 Hyundai Accent is powered by a 1.6-liter gasoline direct fuel injected four-cylinder engine. The Accent was actually the first car in the sub-compact category to employ this fuel-saving technology. Gasoline direct injection also reduces emissions and improves power output. Further, the Accent’s engine employs continuously variable valve timing to maximize horsepower and torque output. The front-drive powertrain offers a choice of a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic with an Eco mode. The manual is rated at 26-city/37-hwy/30-combined, while the automatic transmission returns 27/38/31.

Why buy the 2016 Hyundai Accent?

In addition to its “just-right” size, fuel efficiency, low cost of entry, and exceptional refinement, the smooth and quiet 2016 Hyundai Accent makes a decidedly favorable impression with its high-quality interior treatment, very generous array of standard features, and its rather broad list of optional features. Despite its dimensions, the sub-compact Hyundai is also quite spacious for both passengers and cargo. Full-size adults can comfortably fit in the Hyundai’s back seat. The Accent’s engine makes efficient use of its potential—accelerating the little Hyundai with authority. Available features include keyless entry, Bluetooth handsfree telephony and audio streaming, projector beam headlights, cruise control, foglights, satellite radio, steering wheel mounted secondary controls, and full power accessories. Hatchback models can also be had with a rear windshield wiper.
