2019 Hyundai Accent: A Budget-Friendly Favorite

Today, the average new car transaction in the United States is around $35,000. Many people will end up spending upwards of $40-50,000 on a brand new vehicle. Size doesn’t matter, either, with many compact and subcompact models coming in well over $25,000 even at the base model pricing. Fortunately, the Hyundai Accent offers a better solution.

With new Accent model starting prices coming in lower than the average price of another new vehicle, even adding all the optional upgrades isn’t going to come close to the cost of most new vehicles. If you’re looking for a fuel-efficient, capable subcompact sedan, the Accent gets the job done at a price that even the most frugal shopper will love. While pricing is ranked in the middle of its class, the Hyundai standard features are packed in to provide better value for your money when compared to the competition.

What You Get for Your Investment

The base model of the Hyundai Accent starts at the lowest price, but offers a great selection of standard features. It starts with a combined rating of around 32 MPG and makes up what it lacks in size with a powerful package of tech and safety features, even in the base model. All Accent models include:

?       1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with 130 horsepower

?       6-speed automatic transmission, with manual transmission option in the base model only

?       Durable unibody construction

?       Front MacPherson Strut system with gas shock absorbers and coil springs

?       Standard front-wheel drive operation

?       Vehicle Stability Management system, which includes electronic stability control, traction control, and 4-wheel ABS with brake assist and electronic force distribution

?       60/40 split-fold rear seats

?       Bluetooth integrated sound system with steering wheel mounted audio and multimedia controls

?       5-inch touchscreen with USB ports, smartphone connectivity, and auxiliary jack input

?       Remote keyless entry with panic alert

?       Hyundai Assurance warranty program

Optional Upgrades

In addition to all of these standard features, drivers will also love the plethora of options and trim packages available in the Hyundai Accent. These include the optional base upgrade to a six-speed automatic transmission with the SHIFTRONIC and Active ECO shifting systems for a smoother, more fuel efficient ride that reduces engine and transmission wear. This model can also be upgraded with 15 or 17-inch alloy wheels for a flashier look and better road grip.

Upgrades can be found in the safety department, as well. The Accent is already packed with plenty of safety systems, due in part to Hyundai’s commitment to safety in their vehicle production. Buyers can choose to add an optional safety package that includes blind spot mirrors, Forward Collision-Avoidance assistance, Hill Start Assist Control and Hill Braking Assist. This car features better technology and more safety features than many in its class.

Exterior upgrades include fog lights, daytime LED running lights, LED headlights, heated side mirrors, side mirror integrated turn signals, and an optional power-tilt-and-slide sunroof to add a touch of style and open up the space in this subcompact powerhouse. Tech enthusiasts can upgrade the infotainment system to a seven-inch touchscreen display with added features like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, as well as Bluetooth hands-free technology with voice recognition and satellite radio.
