2018 Hyundai Accent

Pros: Value for the money; straightforward control layout; good ride/handling balance

Cons: Cramped rear-seat space, hatchback body style no longer offered; engine is noisy when accelerating

CG Says: The Hyundai Accent is redesigned for 2018, growing slightly longer and wider than the previous-generation model and gaining new technology and safety features. The new Accent also loses something—a hatchback is no longer available, leaving a four-door sedan as the lone body style. The straightforward model lineup ascends through SE, SEL and Limited models; there are no options or option packages other than accessories such as floor mats. The sole engine on all Accents is a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder that is rated at 130 horsepower. The SE model offers a choice of a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission; the automatic is standard on the SEL and Limited. The line-topping Limited includes features such as forward collision warning with autonomous emergency braking, keyless entry and starting, power sunroof, hands-free trunklid release, 17-inch alloy wheels, and Hyundai’s Blue Link remote connectivity services.
