2020 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

CG Says: The 2020 Hyundai Accent has a new engine and transmission option. Last year’s 130-horsepower 1.6-liter 4-cylinder had been replaced by a new 120-hp 1.6-liter four. Although down on power, the new engine has higher EPA fuel-economy numbers. The previous 6-speed automatic transmission has been replaced by a CVT automatic transmission. The Accent is a subcompact sedan that was redesigned for 2018. 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 SE model offers a choice of a 6-speed manual or CVT automatic transmission; the CVT 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.
