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

The 2020 Hyundai Accent sees a major change from the current model and while it is available in the west, it is yet to make it to local shores. Currently, we get the Accent with two engine options, one is a 1.6-litre diesel which makes 136 PS and the second is a 1.4-litre petrol motor which produces 100 PS. Transmission options include a 7-speed DCT, 6-speed manual and CVT. Safety kit on the Accent includes driver-side airbags, ABS with EBD, hill start system and keyless entry.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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

    When it comes to the finish and looks of the car this appeared to be extra edgy and dashing to me while I caught a glimpse of this in my friend’s house.

    More than you bargained for

    I love the Accent! Hyundai has done a great job in making a stylish yet affordable car with all the bare necessities. The Accent is also very practical, with a roomy interior and big boot. Since I travel long distances frequently, I got the 1.6-litre diesel. It has great performance on the highway and can comfortably cruise at triple-digit speeds Read More

    My first car!

    Buying your first car is always challenging and emotional and it was not different for me. I had a very hard time with the choice but in the end, I feel I made the right choice with the Hyundai Accent. The Accent has been around for a while now and it is a proven formula. The Accent still looks good Read More
