The New Accent

Now far into its fifth generation of production, the Hyundai Accent continues to be a solid choice in the compact sedan market. It is comfortable to drive, the fuel economy is excellent, very spacious for a vehicle of its classification, and covered by the longest warranty in the business. The 2021 edition is available in the following trim levels:

SE: At the base SE level, Hyundai pairs a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine—which produces 120 horsepower and 113 lb-ft of torque—with a six-speed manual transmission. As a five-seater with two rows of seats trimmed in cloth, the vehicle provides ample interior space with its 90.2 cubic feet of passenger volume. (The trunk provides 13.7 cubic feet of cargo space, which can be maximized by folding down the rear seats.) For comfort and convenience, this sedan includes the following features:
• Remote keyless entry (for granting secure access by pressing the key fob)
• Four-speaker AM/FM/CD stereo system
• Bluetooth wireless technology for hands-free phone operation
• 5-inch touchscreen
Driver assistance on the 2021 Accent is provided by cruise control, which allows you to set a safe following distance; and a rearview camera with dynamic guidelines to safely guide you as you slowly back out of a parking spot. For restraint and cushioning, the Hyundai Accent includes a six-airbag system, which consists of two frontal airbags, two front seat-mounted side impact airbags, and two roof-mounted side curtain airbags. Other standard safety features on this vehicle include the following:• Electronic stability control for detecting and reducing the loss of traction
• Traction control to combat skidding on slippery surfaces
• Four-wheel anti-lock brakes to prevent wheel lockup when abruptly applying the brakes
• Brake assist for added stopping power when needed
• Electronic brakeforce distribution for automatically varying the amount of force applied to each of the wheels
• Theft-deterrent system (combines remote keyless entry system with a panic alarm)
SEL: At the mid-tier SEL trim level, Hyundai introduces the option of swapping the six-speed manual transmission with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Not only does the CVT provide operational convenience (the gears on the manual tranny have to be shifted manually), but it also eschews the gear-shifting mechanism for a much smoother and efficient feel. Consequently, the fuel economy numbers peak with the CVT: at 33 mpg in the city and 41 mpg on the highway. These numbers make the Accent one of the most fuel-efficient compact sedans around. Infotainment is greatly enhanced with the introduction of the following features:
• Six-speaker setup (instead of four)
• Bluetooth-enabled voice recognition
• Two USB ports for charging mobile devices
• Trial subscription to SiriusXM Radio service
• Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for smartphone integration
• 7-inch touchscreen (replaces the 5-inch)
Since the CVT is standard on the SEL, it automatically comes with hillstart assist control, which prevents rollback when you shift from Park to Drive on a slope. This feature is added on the base-level SE if you swap the six-speed manual with the CVT.
LIMITED: The top-of-the-line Limited trim represents the peak of convenience, comfort, and safety on the Accent. The sedan at this level gets a hands-free trunk release mechanism, and the front seats gain heating ability. Remote keyless entry is upgraded to proximity keyless entry for unlocking the doors by simply having the key fob on you, and a push button is introduced for starting the engine. A power tilt-and-slide sunroof is introduced for letting the air and light in when desired. Driver assistance is greatly improved with the addition of the following:
• Driver-side blind-spot monitor to watch out for approaching vehicles that are hard or impossible to spot
• Forward collision warning to help avoid or mitigate a front-end crash
• LED daytime running lights to turn on when driving to make the vehicle more visible to pedestrians and other drivers
