2013 Hyundai Accent
2013 Hyundai Accent

New For 2013

Lots of features are now standard on the base model, which means they’re standard on all Accents: air-conditioning, power windows, a six-speaker stereo with a USB input, body-colored mirrors and door handles, and keyless entry. (The car’s base price accordingly rises by about $2000.) The SE now comes standard with turn-signal repeaters in the sideview mirrors and is newly available with a power sunroof. Standard heated side mirrors are also new this year.


Hyundai is on quite a roll of late, and the Accent—it was fully revised for 2012—is perhaps the most impressive renewal 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 Accent’s sophomore season brings a slew of new standard features to the base-model car, most notably air-conditioning, power windows, and a six-speaker stereo. The top trim level, SE, can now be ordered with a power sunroof. 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. Few small cars are penalty boxes these days, and the Accent proudly stands at the top of its segment alongside the likes of the Ford Fiesta.


Front, front side, and side curtain air bags; active front head restraints; ABS; traction and stability control; electronic brake-force distribution; and tire-pressure monitors are standard.

Hyundai Nurburgring Test Center Top View
With growth seemingly constrained only by a self-imposed production capacity moratorium, there aren't many areas of automobiledom that Hyundai hasn't already conquered. But one item missing from its portfolio of global facilities was a permanent outpost at the Mecca of automotive testing, Germany's Nürburgring. That omission will be rectified with the opening of Hyundai's new test center at the 'Ring, opening in August 2013.
