The 2016 Accent offers 137 HP as compared with competitors. Note when you’re shopping, the base GLS sedan and GS hatchback trim levels have collectively been renamed the SE.
This subcompact hatchback can haul lots of gear and comes with a really nice interior and lots of amenities. We’ve already mentioned the maximum fuel economy.
The 2016 Accent is a fetching car in both the sedan and hatchback body styles that will impress you with its ability to endure the daily grind and keep going, a trait Hyundai backs it up with a long warranty. It's also one of the quicker cars in this class, Its 1.6-liter engine responds energetically when you hit the gas pedal, making acceleration to highway speeds stress free.
Both automatic and manual transmissions are available, so deciding between them is a matter of preference. The Accent rides well on the highway and its cabin stays quiet. So even if your commute is longer, you won't have regrets about choosing this Hyundai over a larger, more expensive car. Passenger space is also generous for this category, with comfort to spare for adults sitting in the back seat.
The 2016 Hyundai Accent is offered as a four-door sedan or a four-door hatchback, both of which seat five. The sedan is available only in base SE trim, while the hatchback comes both in SE and fancier Sport versions.
The SE sedan comes equipped with 14-inch steel wheels, keyless entry, air-conditioning, full power accessories, a height-adjustable driver seat, a tilt-adjustable steering wheel, a driver-seat armrest, a 60/40-split folding rear seat, a trip computer and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player, satellite radio and USB and auxiliary audio inputs.
The SE hatchback adds heated outside mirrors (with a driver's blind-spot viewer), a rear windshield wiper and cloth door trim; automatic-transmission versions also have cruise control.
Two options packages are available for automatic-transmission-equipped SE sedans. The Popular package adds heated mirrors, cruise control, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls and a center console storage box with a sliding armrest.
The Style package can be considered an add-on package as it can be purchased only in combination with the popular package. It adds projector-beam headlights with LED accents, fog lights, 16-inch alloy wheels, rear disc brakes (instead of drum brakes), upgraded cloth upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob and an auto-up driver's window to all the features offered in the Popular package.
