Overview (Letter Grade after 8 Categories: B-) :
The subcompactenters its final model year before a redesign with just some changes to trim level designations for the sedan and five door hatchback with features and styling all remaining the same as last year. Luckily for Hyundai that is no bad thing as the hatch is very European in its styling giving it a very sporty appearance whereas the four door sedan takes a more grown up and conservative approach. We could see them both appealing to different drivers but for our test we had a fully loaded Accent SE sedan which stickered for just over $17,000 putting it right in competition with models like the , Scion iA and .
What we loved about the 2016 Hyundai Accent
- The interior design is the picture of minimalist efficiency with excellent build quality
- The sedan and hatchback are both handsome, if a tad conservative looking designs
- The amount of passenger and cargo room makes this a high utility subcompact
What we didn’t love about the 2016 Hyundai Accent
- The IIHS safety rating for this vehicle
- The standard 1.6 liter 4-cylinder sounds a bit gruff when pushed
- All of the feel good factor is on the options list
