2007 Hyundai Accent Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
A two-door hatchback, in base GS or sporty SE trim, has been added to the Hyundai Accent lineup for 2007. Antilock brakes, standard last year, have moved to the options list.

Hyundai’s smallest model earned a substantial redesign for 2006. Now in its third generation, the compact Accent comes in sedan form in addition to the new hatchback style.

Larger in every dimension, the Accent is 3 inches taller and its driver’s seat is 2 inches higher than versions before the 2006 redesign. Hyundai says the third generation Accent has the most interior volume of any sedan in its class. Six airbags are standard.

A 1.6-liter four-cylinder with continuously variable valve timing produces 110 horsepower. Power rack-and-pinion steering is standard. Robert F. Cosmai, president and chief executive officer of Hyundai Motor America, unveiled the Accent at the 2005 New York Auto Show and said the Accent’s interior features an upscale two-tone color scheme.

Sister company Kia sells the Rio, a car that shares many components with the Accent. Both models include a 10-year, 100,000-mile drivetrain warranty, one of the industry’s longest.

Exterior
Hyundai says the Accent’s crisp modern lines, distinctive halogen headlights, and larger wheels and tires make this version more elegant than its predecessor. A roof-mounted rod-type radio antenna and body-colored door handles, bodyside moldings, mirrors and rear tailgate garnish are installed.

Measuring 1.8 in...

A 1.6-liter four-cylinder with continuously variable valve timing produces 110 horsepower. Power rack-and-pinion steering is standard. Robert F.

Sister company Kia sells the Rio, a car that shares many components with the Accent. Both models include a 10-year, 100,000-mile drivetrain warranty, one of the industry’s longest.

Exterior
Hyundai says the Accent’s crisp modern lines, distinctive halogen headlights, and larger wheels and tires make this version more elegant than its predecessor. A roof-mounted rod-type radio antenna and body-colored door handles, bodyside moldings, mirrors and rear tailgate garnish are installed.

Measuring 1.8 inches longer overall than the prior Accent, the new sedan has a wheelbase that’s been stretched by 2.3 inches. The car is also an inch wider and 3 inches taller. Standard steel wheels hold 14-inch tires, but 15-inch tires on alloy wheels are optional.

GS and SE hatchbacks sport a fairly typical wedge shape, though telltale Hyundai curves are apparent. SE models ride on 16-inch alloy wheels and a sportier suspension.

Interior
Up to five occupants can fit inside the Accent, which has 1.5 inches more rear legroom than before. Front headroom is 0.7 inches greater as well. Moving the driver’s seating position up 2 inches should make entry and exit easier. Cargo space totals 12.4 cubic feet in the sedan and 15.9 cubic feet in the hatchback. Every door panel contains a bottle holder and storage pockets.

Standard equipment includes a tilt steering wheel and an eight-way driver’s seat with an adjustable armrest. The front seatbacks contain pockets; both front occupants get vanity mirrors; and the 60/40-split, folding rear seat has a folding center armrest with dual cupholders. Air conditioning is included on all but the GS hatchback. An available Convenience Package adds power windows, power door locks with keyless entry and heated power mirrors, items that are standard in the SE hatchback.

Under the Hood
The Accent’s 110-hp, 1.6-liter four-cylinder features continuously variable valve timing and develops 107 pounds-feet of torque. Either a five-speed manual transmission or an optional four-speed automatic can be installed.

Safety
Seat-mounted side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags are standard across all trim levels. Front seat belt pretensioners and load limiters are installed, and all seating positions have adjustable head restraints. Four-wheel-disc antilock brakes are standard on the SE hatchback. ABS is optional for the GLS sedan and unavailable in the GS hatchback.

On my 3rd Accent since 2003 and still love it!

by ExperiencedDriver from Brampton, ON on March 19, 2020

I've now owned 3 Accents - 2 of them unfortunately, were written off in collisions (by careless drivers), but I came out of both collisions with minor injuries. This car has performed extremely well ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
