What Is the 2020 Hyundai Accent?
The Hyundai Accent is a front-wheel-drive subcompact sedan that seats up to five people. It’s powered by a 120-horsepower, 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that pairs with a six-speed manual or a continuously variable automatic transmission. Competitors include the Toyota Yaris, Kia Rio and Nissan Versa.
What’s New on the 2020 Hyundai Accent?
The Accent gets a new 1.6-liter four-cylinder that’s slightly less powerful than the one the car had before, and the engine can team with a newly available CVT.
What Features in the 2020 Hyundai Accent Are Most Important?
Let’s start with better gas mileage, since shoppers in the subcompact class are more attuned to having a car that’s easy on their wallet. EPA combined fuel economy ratings are now 33 mpg with the standard six-speed manual — 2 mpg better than last year — and 36 mpg with the CVT.
While the base Accent is modestly equipped, you can add Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, a larger 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system, a power moonroof and a hands-free trunk lid. Automatic emergency braking is also available.
Should I Buy the 2020 Hyundai Accent?
The Accent is a fine choice if you’re looking for a small car that’s frugal and practical. Ride quality suffers when the car is laden and the cabin can get noisy, but if you want an easy-to-drive subcompact with an impressive warranty, the Accent is a solid choice.
