A sister vehicle to the Kia Rio, the Hyundai Accent is a subcompact available as either a sedan or a hatchback. Both feature simple-to-use buttons and dials. Fuel economy is also impressive, averaging 28 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway, thanks in part to special low rolling. Hatchbacks have about 8 cubic feet of storage space, but both Accents have big gloveboxes and bins and trays smartphones, energy drinks, and toll change. As with pretty much any small car, the rear middle seat is best left to those for whom walking is the only other option.
Storage capacities seem adequate with standard storage area in cabins and other compartments. The Accent hatchback feels larger than a subcompact, and the numbers reflect that. It works through six-speed transmissions. Everything in the cabin is intuitive and easy to operate.

Accent's body shape carries a low coefficient of drag, 0. The cross-section of the sedan trim looks simple and uncomplicated, while the hatchback trim has a more bloated look.
Seat fabric is comfortable and appears to be very durable. The Accent earns respect with standard stability control mandatory in all cars for 2012 and curtain airbags. All 2013 trims come standard with 4-wheel antilock brakes. Accent shares Hyundai's Fluidic Sculpture design theme with the high-priced Sonata and Elantra models. Total passenger volume in the sedan is about 90 cubic feet, down slightly from the prior-generation Accent sedan.
Ride quality, as with any short-wheelbase vehicle, can be jarring over potholes and bouncy on frost-heaved highways, but there's surely a more fluid ride quality here than before. This could very well be its defining aspect. Its grace in style and unique designing is reestablished where a set of elegant halogen headlights and a well-carved hood with depth engraving in the center play their parts.

With some of the brand's swoopy 'fluidic sculpture' design cues and well-sculpted sheetmetal, the Accent is quite handsome. The powertrain is very refined offering up smooth shifts and good throttle response. The simpler center stack of controls isn't as shapely as the one in the Elantra, but avoids the slanted, fashion-victim look of the Ford Fiesta, and it leaves plenty of room for tall drivers' knees. Its interior is typical of Hyundai's current cars, with ritzy materials throughout. The Accent comes with a choice of 6-speed manual gearbox or 6-speed automatic.
