2018 Hyundai Accent

The 2018 Hyundai Accent sub-compact car represents a great choice for shoppers looking for a solid build quality, handsome styling, and laudable performance. Some of the highlights for 2018 include interior ambience, a log warranty, whisper-quiet cabin, and a strong 0-60 mph acceleration. The Hyundai Accent USA release date should be expected in early 2018.

With such a huge array of options to choose from, the Hyundai Accent 2018 redesign had to meet the industry’s threshold in order to be well-placed for the lurking competition. Well, that was taken into account and now the Hyundai has not only improved in leaps and bounds it has also become more fun than it used to be.

Furthermore, the 2018 Hyundai Accent interior is something to write home about. There’re lots of upscale technologies and features for the money. What’s more, it isn’t as thirsty at the pump as some of its rivals. The bottom line is the Accent for 2018 is a great option for buyers looking for pretty much everything squeezed in one tiny package.

Even so, there isn’t anything fancy about the Hyundai Accent 2018 lest you start fantasizing about it only to be awakened by the sad reality. Maybe not sad per se, for a lack of a better word. It is impressive for those looking for an enthusiastic ride quality. In fact, it is one of the feisty cars in its class. It comes with a choice of two transmission systems: a manual or an automatic – both of which work well.


For this class, we must admit that the amount of passenger and cargo space is rather laudable. The backseat space is average and small adults shouldn’t have any reason to complain. One of the unappealing aspect of the Hyundai Accent is perhaps its middling fuel economy ratings relative to the available competition. Visibility at the rear is also wanting.

We highly recommend the Hyundai Accent for people shopping in the subcompact segment, however, the segment offers a plethora of other decent options worth booking a test drive for. They include the Honda Fit, Scion iA, Ford Fiesta, and Kia Rio.
