The Hyundai Accent is right in the middle between fuel-efficiency and sportiness. It’s a small car that those who enjoy driving will appreciate, yet buyers who simply want to go from point A to point B will also want to get behind the wheel of the Accent.

Already well-known for its reliability and fuel-economy, the Accent hasn’t changed much since last year. That means that you get a modern-looking car that is available in both a five-door hatchback and a sedan. Both version are very similarly priced with the Accent hatchback starting at 13,599$ and the Accent Sedan priced at $13,249. Those who simply need a vehicle for daily outings may want to opt for the sedan while buyers who would love to use their sub-compact as a versatile vehicle regardless of its size can opt for the hatchback.

The 2015 Hyundai Accent is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 138 horsepower and 123 lb-ft or torque. A quick comparison across the segment will showcase that the Accent offers the most power of any subcompact which means that when driving around the city or when passing on the highway, there is plenty of power to go around. We also like the Accent’s quick steering and nimble overall demeanor. The car is an absolute breeze to park in the city and a joy to drive on a winding road. Better yet, the Accent’s fuel economy is as it should be for a car of this class with a posted fuel economy rating of 8.7 liters per 100 kilometers in the city and 6.3 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway.

Every 2015 Hyundai Accent comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission, traction control, electronic stability control, and vehicle stability management. Optional equipment includes heated front seats, air conditioning, a six-speed automatic transmission, cruise control, automatic temperature control, keyless entry and Bluetooth.

Inside the Accent, buyers get a simple design with an easy-to-use center console that also happens to look very nice. There is quite a bit of space of front, even for taller buyers, while the back seat can sit two in relative comfort. Let us not forget that we are talking about a subcompact vehicle here.

The 2015 Hyundai Accent received slight changes outside as well in order to differentiate it from the 2014 model. Overall, its sleek European styling is well executed without being overly eccentric. The Accent looks good from every angle, and the proportions would make a German manufacturer proud.
