This is the rental car number 126 and today I'm driving the 2019 Hyundai Accent SE

There's more details below, but I just wanted to quickly say ~thank you~ for watching my video. Please comment below and share your thoughts. Or just take a second and say 'Hey'. I'd love to hear from you. Cheers!

NOTES:

Year: 2019
Make: Hyundai
Model: Accent
Trim: SE

Korean Name: 현대 베르나 (Hyundai Verna)

Type: 4-door Subcompact Car
History: Fifth generation. Hyndai has been making the Accent - in some form or another - since 1994.

MSRP: $15,995 (with an automatic transmission)

+ 15-inch alloy wheels

Engine: 1.6L Inline 4-cylinder
Transmission: 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC capability
Horsepower: 130 hp at 6,300
MPG City: 28
MPG Highway: 38
Combined Rating: 33
Fuel Tank Capacity: 11.9 gallons
Cost for a full tank: $3.00 $35.70

+ 5-inch color LCD touchscreen
+ Bluetooth Connectivity

Handling:
+ A little rough. You do feel the bumps at highways speeds. But for normal driving, it worked great.

ACCELERATION:
So, the 0 to 60 time on the Accent is around 10 seconds on the on the "Limited" trim level using the automatic transmission. It's actually closer to 7.5 on the manual (if you're curious).
Anyway, this car is not fast. But it does get great gas mileage which is why I would be attracted to this car. Not speed.

CABIN NOISE:
+ I'm not gonna lie, it's a little louder that I would have liked. But it's not horrible. I just had to turn up the volume on my audiobook by about 10 to 20%.

FINAL THOUGHTS: 4 stars

The MSRP on this car is around $16,000, but with incentives I bet you can get this vehicle for much, much less. So if you're looking for a new car, and you trying to stick to a strict budget, I think this is a great option. You get a nice vehicle, with up to date technology, with great gas mileage for a very reasonable price.

      Hello! I love cars like the Accent. I realize it's not super fancy, but this is a really good car for the price. And I kinda wish there were more options like this out there. Cheap, reliable, and fun to drive. What else do you really need?

      Florida bmw and jeep Srt and vw enthusiast Yeah that’s why you got a mustang. If you book a compact you can technically get anything. So technically you didn’t get “upgraded” . It’s hard sometimes to find people that are willing to take a smaller 2 door car like that.

      Thanks for the review. I got this car in December '18. Was hesitating between a used Camry/Corolla and this and finally decided to buy a new car. As I live in Eastern Europe, I got the Russian version of the car, which doesn't have sport seats or touchscreen (available on top model only), and instead gets heated seats and steering wheel and a stronger suspension system for awful Russian roads. All in all, here are my pros and cons.
      Pros:
      - Reliability. Obviously, it is new, but Accent is known for being very reliable and even if it breaks, it costs less to fix than a German or Japanese.
      - Superb trunk space. It is bigger than Camry's! And also bigger than pretty much any hatchback, with only the height being a problem with getting some tall/wide stuff in.
      - Nice options, as shown in the video
      - Most plastics don't look as cheap as they actually are. If you don't touch the nice looking plastic, you wouldn't know that it's very hard.
      - Standard classic engine and transmission. Mine's engine is chain-driven, don't know about NA market.
      - Overall feel and quality is great for this price point
      - Handsfree works great
      - Great design for a compact car, especially the rear lights and this dark grey color is awesome (I have it as well). so is blue, but white and black do not look good.
      - Interior looks a lot better than a used base Corolla. Also has more tech
      Cons:
      - Might be region-specific, but I only got 2 airbags. I wish I could have side ones as well.
      - Road noise is a bit too much if you are sensitive to that stuff. I'm not.
      - I feel the steering wheel cover will wear pretty quickly. Same for the buttons, so I don't press them a lot lol

      I find Hyundai/Kia's interior black buttons not good quality as they will fade and get smudged and loose their glossiness in time. Looks like they're still using the same type of plastics to this day in 2019.

      My mom and I brought my sister 2018 Hyundai Accent in the SEL Trim. My sister needed a bigger car and I needed another car. So I took on the Accent. The Hyundai Accent is an good vehicle. It has it's Pro's and Con's but overall if you need a cheap car this is a great choice. I recommend if you decide to buy an Accent get the SEL or Limited Trim. Personally, I like the SEL Trim better. It has Wayyyyy more then I need in a vehicle. I don't have to have all the Bells and Whistles in a vehicle. So far it has been a great small car. It will get you where you want to go and need to go.

      I prefer a Toyota iA, it’s a bit sportier with a wonderful slick shifting Mazda Manual Standard. But the Accent when I’m SE trim or lower is a really good value. Also available in Manual. Big Plus!

      Hyundai used to just include Xm radio on all of their models regardless of trim, not anymore. Nit picky but annoying that they don’t do it anymore. If I had to buy something in this class I’d probably go with an accent or fit.

      I think it is a beautiful, well designed little car. It is rated as a compact rather than a subcompact car because it has so much interior space. With fewer bells and whistles, there is less to break down. If you pay more than 14K for this car, you paid too much. I like the 2020 Corolla better, but it is much more expensive and has a shorter warranty.

      I've got this car in the limited trim. It is VERY NICE for it's size. Even the lower model SE and SEL models. Mine has a sunroof, heated seats, Keyless entry and remote start, an 8 inch touch screen with Android auto and apple carplay. 18 inch wheels, Projector headlamps, auto opening trunk, Auto emergency braking, Blue Link and more. It's comfortable, nimble and peppy. The areas I would complain is the gas mileage. With the GDI motor, yes it's got more pep than the rest of the class, but unless you feather the gas pedal, you won't get the government estimated ratings. For me, that's ok. I think next to the Honda fit, this would be one of the top two in the class. Good video! Thumbs up
