Accent Pros & Cons

Things We Like in Accent

Compared to the previous generation Hyundai Accent which was gradually beginning to show its age after all these years, the new Accent sports some serious alterations to its exterior design. The all-new design has the same fluidic design silhouette as its predecessor, however, it now looks much sharper and contemporary than ever before.

The new Hyundai Accent now comes with increased levels of fit and finish, which do go well with the revised interior design. Even from the inside as well, the car feels plusher and richer compared to the model it has replaced.

The Hyundai Accent is being offered with a petrol and a diesel engine, however, it is the latter which feels much punchier to drive. In fact, the performance outputs of the 1.6-litre engine in the Accent makes it the most powerful car in its segment.

Things We Dont Like in Accent

Hyundai has made the new Accent feel rich in terms of fit and finish, however, the lack of a number of modern comfort and convenience features do make the new Accent feel a bit dated. The absence of primary features like a touchscreen infotainment system, automatic climate control, push-button start and many more still does not create a strong impression in its favour.

While the new Accent feels engaging to drive with decent driving dynamics and powerful engines, the rear seat cabin of the new Accent falls short on space and comfort. The shoulder room is at a premium, due to which seating for three passengers at the rear is quite a squeeze.

While the light steering setup is a boon in urban driving conditions, the same setup at higher speeds too makes driving a bit less exciting. The steering does weigh a bit more at higher speeds, but not enough from a driving enthusiast’s point of view.


Recent Updates of Accent

Hyundai introduced the fifth-generation Accent in the Philippines in December 2018 and the South Korean sedan is offered with a 1.6-litre diesel engine or a 1.4-litre petrol mill. The diesel- and petrol-fed motors serve the Accent 136 PS and 100 PS, respectively. As far as the transmission options are concerned, you get to choose from a 7-speed DCT, a 6-speed manual, and a CVT. While the LED DRLs, large grille, 8 color options, and coupe-ish side profile give the Accent’s exterior an interesting appeal, the interior of the sedan is bolstered by automatic climate control, multifunction steering wheel, and three upholstery options. Hyundai has also introduced the 2020 Accent in China, however, it won’t arrive in the Philippine anytime soon.

Accent Overview

Hyundai has always known to be market reactive and had products which have exceeded the people’s expectations or have been trendsetters. There was a time when Hyundai used to be the copycats of the world, drawing design inspiration and borrowing powertrains. However, now they have their own design team and one headed by Peter Schreyer from Audi. The new Hyundai Accent, when it was launched in 2011 was one such game changer. It just took away the Honda City’s crown from under its nose and is now the largest selling compact sedan in the Philippines. The third generation Accent is actually outdated now but due to its strong feature set as well as its engine, it still is a favourite here. Other markets where it is sold as the Verna have already got the fifth generation car and it looks like a mini-Elantra. Expect the Philippines to get it within a year as well.

Hyundai Accent Interior & Features

The cabin of the new Hyundai Accent is done beautifully. However, age is catching up with it and the omission of a touchscreen infotainment system is glaring too. The age-old blue displayed music system seems okay-ish. We have experienced the next-gen Accent and its Arkamys sound system is definitely way better than this. The driver’s seat gets manual adjustment and there is also one for the front seat passenger as well. Hyundai also gives a tilt adjustable steering wheel. The wheel has audio as well as Bluetooth controls on it and one can also receive or disconnect a phone call through it. The instrument cluster is a twin pod unit and relays out information about the travel time, trip, average efficiency, and distance to empty. A choice of three upholstery options are given to the customers - beige and grey dual tone along with black monotone. One sits low in the Hyundai Accent and this is the case both with the front as well as the rear passengers. An air conditioning vent is also given for the rear passengers while on top models, Hyundai offers an automatic climate control. The rear seat passengers also get lower headroom than the competition thanks to the swoopy roofline. At 495 litres, the boot isn’t as big as what the competition offers but can swallow a couple of suitcases. Quality of materials used in the cabin seem satisfactory and will endure the time.

Accent Exterior

The Fluidic Sculpture has done wonders for Hyundai cars. They have become more desirable and at the same time are also trend setters. Well, we haven’t seen anyone ape them but who knows the theme may start.

The swooped bonnet and those curvy headlights head lamps with LED DRLs besides the well-sculpted grille, cut a distinct figure. The Volvo S60-eque L-shaped fog lights also look good. The Hyundai Accent’s side profile is more interesting and looks more coupe-ish than a compact sedan. At the rear, the lights aren’t LED but seem beautiful nonetheless. The overall height of the Hyundai Accent has been lowered down when compared to the previous generation. The length has been increased and the tyres also have a bigger as well as wider profile now. The overall dimensions are 4,375 mm x 1,700 mm x 1,475 mm with the ground clearance at 155 mm. Hyundai offers a choice of 8 colors with the Accent. They are Coffee Brown, Sonic Silver, Dazzling Blue, Veloster Red, Misty Beige, White Crystal, Phantom Black, and Sleek Silver. There are multiple variants to choose from and you also can choose from either petrol or diesel too.

Hyundai Accent Ride & Handling

The Hyundai Accent has always been tuned for ride quality. However, it is a bit bouncy at the back and neither is the handling up to the mark. The car displays some amount of body roll when enthusiastically driven. The engines are lovely but the chassis itself isn’t as willing a partner. The steering is light and stays the same throughout the drive, robbing off confidence at higher speeds. NVH has been well-taken care off and it is hard to say if the engine is switched on or not. Even the diesel has very low NVH and is very refined.

Accent Engine & Fuel Consumption

The Accent sells in the Philippines with two different engine options. There is a 1.4-litre Dual CVVT petrol producing 100 PS at 6000 rpm and 13.6 Nm of torque at 3500 rpm. It comes with a 6-speed manual or a CVT. There is also a 1.6-litre CRDi VGT diesel that comes with a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual clutch automatic. While the power output is the same for both the transmissions at 136 PS at 4000 rpm, the torque is another story. The 6-speed manual generates a peak torque of 26.5 Nm between 1500 and 3500 rpm. The 7-speed generates 30.6 Nm of torque between 1750 and 2500 rpm. This equates to very good performance especially on highways, where it can really stretch its legs. The wide rev range for the peak torque makes it fast while cruising. Acceleration is powerful across the rev range. This makes the diesel the better option here. But you probably already knew that because of its other major advantage. The Accent diesel gives excellent fuel economy at 27 to 37 kmpl depending on the transmission. For best of both performance and fuel economy, the 6-speed manual is the obvious choice.

Hyundai Accent Braking & Safety

Hyundai gives the Accent six airbags, ABS with EBD, Hill Start Assist and brake assist. The GNCAP rating for the Accent is four stars. Hyundai has given the top-spec trims reverse parking sensors, a reverse camera and height adjustable seat belts.

Accent Verdict

We have always liked the Hyundai Accent. However, it is starting to show its age now and the replacement we hear is not far off. That is a much better car to begin with. The Accent right now would not be a bad choice but will be a stagnating one though.

    The all-new Hyundai Accent features completely reinvented exterior styling, which sets it apart from its older generations. I particularly decided to buy the car when I visited the showroom for its exterior styling. The car is a great blend of style and practicality with the characteristic fluidic design retained by Hyundai. The 1.4L petrol engine variant that I own is Read More

    Don't be deceived by its size. Yes the engine is small by today's standards considering SUVs are dominating. However, the 1.6 diesel variant is excellent! Its engine size and variant will really help you save fuel prices. I get about 14 km/l on average in city driving and 25 km/l on the highway based on my driving. So it's really Read More

    Now this is one of my cars that I always rely upon the most amidst others. I feel blessed that I opted for such a standard quality subcompact car. More or less the ride is quite satisfying until the road ahead is stiff. The automatic transmission of this car ensures that this car stands out as a good car in Read More

    I recently upgraded to the Hyundai Accent fifth-generation petrol variant. The car comes with a 1.4 liter dual CVVT petrol engine that delivers 100 PS of power. Hyundai has prioritized rider and driver safety with an excellent braking system and ABS, along with six airbags included. This makes the car an excellent one for family rides. My Phantom Black Accent Read More

    While I decided to go for this subcompact car I had no doubt about this in any aspect as I gathered sufficient information about the same.

    There are very few sedans in the market that offer a perfect blend of comfort, luxury and performance and the Hyundai Accent is among them. This car exudes elegance from every angle. On the inside, the Accent is equipped with some advanced creature comforts that ensure a relaxed journey. I find it very easy to drive this car around in Read More

    I was looking for an affordable diesel cruiser which presented itself in the form of the Accent Sedan! It's a good looking car, sadly you don't get all the latest tech and that is fine by me. What I love the most is the 1.6-litre diesel motor. When you are inside it barely feels like a diesel, Hyundai has done Read More

    I have been driving the Hyundai Accent for the past seven months. I have the top model of the sedan, and it is worth every penny, as it offers the very best of things. The leg-room is best-in-class, and the cabin is covered in the best quality material. The Accent offers a smooth ride, and while driving it I feel Read More
