Negotiate Smarter with the Best Car Buying Tools
The 2014 Hyundai Accent scrapes by with just enough features to be acceptable for the price of $20,000 or lower, but doesn’t offer much more than that. Its best asset is undoubtedly its excellent appearance that outshines nearly every vehicle in its class.

The 2014 Hyundai Accent brings the level of competition few other cars in its class can match by carrying itself with the grace and aptitude that captures people’s attention. And by adding to that spectacular design and mind-blowing affordability, this subcompact manages to stand above its rivals. So, if you’re looking for the best bang for your buck, you’ll find it in this vehicle and more (but not much more). As with any car, the first thing you notice is the way it looks – and this subcompact is the very definition of slick and graceful, especially if you consider the five-door hatchback. The four-door sedan is attractive too, but it doesn’t quite deliver the same level of design mastery as the five-door offering. Everything is just so well-placed and proportional in this car that it’s hard to look away. And all of this is possible thanks to something called the “Fluidic Sculpture,” a new design approach that helped this subcompact to really come into its own back in 2012. On the inside, the 2014 Accent looks just as impressive, coming with a matte-finished dash cap that has the feel of carbon fiber and a very simple yet effective centre stack of controls. And while the stack of controls isn’t as shapely as that in the Elantra line-up, it still doesn’t look as twisted as the one in the Ford Fiesta (which admittedly looks a little better this year). Unfortunately, this elegance and simplicity is more apparent in the hatchback than the sedan. And since part of the design’s appeal is its unabashed curviness, it’s a shame that the sedan’s stumpy trunk cuts it short, making it look incomplete. Despite the shortcomings of the sedan’s interior design, all versions of the Hyundai Accent offer a decent amount of space. In fact, the Accent effortlessly surpasses its competition in this area, providing more legroom and headroom than any other subcompact hatchback or sedan. Even the rear seats are respectably spacious, allowing tall individuals to fit in nicely. As for cargo space, it’s a well-known fact that hatchbacks are not big on it, so if you still want to have a decently-sized trunk with your back seats up, then maybe the sedan would be a better choice. On the powertrain side of things, the 2014 Accent delivers almost exactly what’s accepted of it – a performance level that isn’t mind-blowing, but efficient and all-around acceptable enough to be worth it. All models come with a 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine that manages to squeeze out 138 horsepower at 6300 rpm and 123 pound-feet of torque. It takes roughly nine seconds for the Accent to reach the 90-kilometre mark, which is reasonably quick for a car in its class, but there are enough rivals that can deliver more. So, all-in-all, this engine is not bad, but its lack of ambition is apparent. As for the special features, the new Hyundai Accent is well-endowed, but it’s not at the luxury level, being right where it’s expected to be. So, don’t anticipate things like leather upholstery or a sunroof because you won’t get any. In 2013, Hyundai has made a host of small additions, including a better base audio system, a touch-turn signal, sliding sun visors and a blind-spot mirror. This in turn has raised the base price by around $2,000. In the end, the 2014 Hyundai Accent is the sort of car you should buy only if you’re looking for something low-priced – since even the most expensive model costs less than $20,000. It’s hard to deny that the Accent lives and breathes like an economy vehicle, but it looks better than most of its rivals, making it well worth a test drive.

The 2014 Hyundai Accent comes in two body styles: the four-door sedan and five-door hatchback. Both once again rely on Hyundai’s “Fluidic Structure” design approach that was first introduced in 2012. As a result, its sheet metal carries a very dynamic look that matches its equally fantastic interior design. The base model offers new projector headlights with LED accents, while the five-door SE comes with a B&M Racing sport shifter. Admittedly, the sedan doesn’t quite match the hatchback’s look due to its somewhat stubby backside, but that’s not a big deal – because it’s still a very decent-looking car in its own right. Overall, this car looks beautiful, and we’d gladly call it the best in its class when it comes to looks. So, if that’s important to you in an economy vehicle, then definitely consider the Accent. Inside, the car doesn’t offer a great deal more features than its rivals, but at least it matches them – though not in all cases. To be fair, the best part about the cabin is not the features that come with it, but the way it looks – since nothing feels cluttered or out-of-place.

Power and Performance:The 2014 Hyundai Accent offers an acceptable level of performance, but it doesn’t deliver anything more than that. The engine it comes with is a 1.6-litre direct-injection four-cylinder that cranks out 138 horsepower and 123 pound-feet of torque. The Accent is also available with the choice of two transmissions: either the manual gearbox with a light clutch or the six-speed automatic with a Sport mode and manual control. The acceleration is a bit of a disappointment – it takes roughly nine to ten seconds to reach 90 kilometres per hour. So, don’t hold your breath for that. Fuel economy isn’t the best in its class, but at least it’s roughly in the same range. The EPA rating for either the manual gearbox or automatic transmission is 8.4 litres per 100 kilometres in the city and 6.4 litres per 100 kilometres on the highway. So, if fuel economy is your major concern, then there are more efficient vehicles to consider.
Interiors and Special Features:The 2014 Hyundai Accent delivers a stunning cabin that’s in some ways is the very definition of style over substance. In a nutshell – it’s very pretty to look at, but it’s not exactly feature-rich. Appearance-wise, you get a matte-finished dash caps that feels almost like carbon fiber and a very neat-looking centre stack of controls that doesn’t have that slanted look of its competitors (Ford Fiesta comes to mind). Predictably, the cabin’s look isn’t as good in the sedan as it is in the hatchback due to the stubbiness of its trunk, which stands in sharp contrast with the car’s otherwise curvy design. In terms of space, there’s enough legroom and headroom in back and front across all models. In fact, it’s much roomier than most cars in its class or even the previous Accent models. The four-door version alone is around 172 inches long, and most of the space is devoted to the cabin. The cargo space is very reasonably-sized in all models too, but it’s not big. The Hyundai Accent is a small car overall, so don’t expect too much trunk space. If that’s your concern, however, than the sedan offers more space, but at the cost of the ability to fold down back seats. Throughout the cabin, you’ll find plenty of bins and trays for your smartphones, drinks and so forth. Other features include air conditioning and power accessories as well as several new additions like an updated base audio system, a one-touch turn signal, sliding sun visors and a blind-spot mirror. The GLS sedan adds the Premium package, which comes with steering-wheel audio controls, Bluetooth, cruise control, fog lights and 16-inch wheels. The hatchback GS comes with almost the same options as the GLS, but adds iPod and USB connectivity to its audio system. In the meantime, Accent SE brings with it a sliding armrest, 16-inch wheels, sport-tuned steering, heated side mirrors and fog lamps.
Safety features:The 2014 Hyundai Accent features an incredibly subpar safety package. It has earned “acceptable” scores in the side-impact protection tests from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and a four-star rating (out of five) from the U.S. federal government – with the side-impact test results lowering the score. That said, the IIHS has awarded the car with good ratings in all other areas. Just like everything else in the 2014 Accent, the safety features are standard, and as such, include things like side and side-curtain bags, anti-lock brakes, stability control and active headrests. Don’t expect much though since there really isn’t much to find here.
