Our Take on the Latest Model 2000 Hyundai Accent

2000 Hyundai Accent Reviews

Vehicle Overview
Hyundai's smallest, least expensive model is redesigned for 2000, sporting new styling, larger exterior dimensions and a roomier interior. The front-drive Accent again comes in two-door hatchback and four-door sedan styling. Anti-lock brakes, which were dropped from the option list last year, are not offered this year either. All Hyundais come with the most comprehensive new-car warranty. It covers the whole car for five years/60,000 miles, major powertrain components for 10 years/100,000 miles and corrosion for five years/100,000 miles. Hyundai provides free roadside assistance for the first five years.

Hyundai says the 2000 Accent provides more passenger room in both the front and rear seats thanks to a longer wheelbase and a wider body. Cargo volume is 10.7 cubic feet on the sedan and 16 cubic feet on the hatchback. Both body styles have a folding rear seatback. Standard equipment includes power steering, a cassette player and rear window defroster.

Wheelbase on the new Accent is 1.6 inches longer at 96 inches. Width has grown two inches and overall length about 5 inches. The new styling has fewer curves and more straight edges than the old look and larger headlamps that Hyundai says cast a wider, longer beam.

Under the Hood
Accent is new in most areas but not here. The 92-horsepower, 1.5-liter four-cylinder used in the previous model returns with a choice of five-speed manual and four-speed automatic transmissions. However, Hyundai says new hydraulic engine mounts and other changes result in smoother, quieter engine operation.
