What's New in the 2017 Hyundai Accent?

Which Accent is the Best?

We'd go with the Sport hatchback because we love its extra hauling capability and its smart-looking alloy wheels. It's a smart buy, but if you don't need the hatch's added space, the Value Edition sedan would be our second choice. Find a Hyundai Accent for sale

Hyundai Accent Safety

Is the 2017 Hyundai Accent a Safe Car?

The Accent comes with standard stability control and active front head restraints, as well as six airbags (front, front-side and full-length side-curtain). All Accents come equipped with anti-lock brakes, but the SE trims come standard with less-advanced rear drum brakes, whereas the Sport hatchback and SE sedan models with the Popular and Style packages feature 4-wheel disc brakes.

In crash tests conducted by the government, the Accent scored four stars out of five across the board. The independent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Accent generally good ratings save for a troubling Poor score in the firm's small-overlap front crash test.

Competition

2017 Hyundai Accent vs the competition

2017 Chevrolet Sonic -- The Sonic's optional turbocharged engine is one of the best in this class, but even the simplest Sonic boasts a comfortable ride along with responsive handling.

2017 Ford Fiesta -- The Fiesta seems lost in the shuffle these days, and that's not fair. Ford's subcompact is a pleasure to drive thanks to its Euro-inspired suspension, and it boasts strong fuel economy and a lower starting price, too.

2017 Kia Rio -- If you want more style and character than the Accent offers, try its cousin from Kia. The Rio feels better from behind the wheel, and we like its attractive high-quality cabin.

Used Hyundai Elantra GT -- The one-size-up Elantra GT is a Euro-market hatchback with a little more refinement than the Elantra sedan. A certified pre-owned example can be had for Accent money or less.
