2012 hyundai accent Reviews and News

2012 Hyundai Accent
2012 Hyundai Accent
Hyundai is on quite a roll of late, and the brand-new 2012 Accent is perhaps the most impressive model revision yet from the Korean automaker. The entry-level Accent stacks up incredibly well in a segment that has recently been revolutionized by products such as the Ford Fiesta, the Chevrolet Sonic, and the Mazda 2. Like its predecessor, the new Accent is an inexpensive car, but it no longer feels cheap. It features a 1.6-liter direct-injected four-cylinder that produces 138 hp and paces the class in fuel mileage, achieving EPA ratings of 30/40 mpg city/highway. The exterior styling might not appeal to folks with a phobia of melted things, but it helps the car stand out boldly from its competitors as well as its predecessors. The quirky-cool two-door coupe body style didn't return for this season, but it has been replaced by a more usable four-door hatchback (available in GS and SE trim), which carries a premium over the base four-door sedan (which comes only as the GLS). The Accent's cabin is surprisingly spacious -- its interior volume earns it a spot in the EPA's Compact class even though it is, by general definition, a subcompact car. Air-conditioning, a radio, and power windows and door locks are not standard equipment on the most miserly GLS models, but all Accents come with four-wheel disc brakes and six air bags. Few subcompacts are penalty boxes these days, and the Accent proudly stands at the top of its segment alongside the likes of the Ford Fiesta.
2013 Hyundai Accent Hatch Front Three Quarter
The 2013 Hyundai Accent is on its way to Hyundai dealers across the country with more content before--and an understandably larger price tag. Fresh on its heels, however, is the Hyundai Elantra GT five-door hatchback, which will start at $19,170.
Hyundai I20 Rear
It seems Hyundai's bringing something other than the i-oniq concept and i30/ Elantra Wagon to the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. The automaker's also using the Swiss auto show to show off the latest iteration of the subcompact i20 model.
2011 Hyundai Sonata Profile
The Koreans continue their upward trend for August, with the Kia Sorento and Hyundai Sonata being each brand's hot commodities. Kia sales are up 26.9 percent compared to last August, while Hyundai sales are up 9 percent compared to the same period last year.
2012 Hyundai Accent Right Side View
At the press event, every journalist in attendance kept commending the Accent's size. While it's true that the interior is quite spacious for a subcompact (the EPA rates it as a compact), the Accent still drives like a small car. The short wheelbase -- and relatively stiff suspension of our SE model -- makes the car crash over highway irregularities and skip like a stone on a lake over expansion joints. In the city, the Hyundai performs much better.

2011 Ford Fiesta Hatch Right Profile
Enthusiasts mourning the decline of the station wagon, don’t fret: if Ford has anything to say about it, the hatchback is back. Ford announced today that buyers shopping the Fiesta and Focus models are buying the hatchback models at increasing rates, a trend that could be extending to the rest of the industry.
