The 2018 Hyundai Accent Sedan is a subcompact sedan offered in 3 trims, starting off at a base MSRP of $14,995. It mainly competes with the Chevrolet Sonic Sedan, the Kia Rio Sedan, and the Nissan Versa for that price. Between 3 trims, the Accent offers just one powertrain option. It is a 1.6L inline 4 engine making 130 horsepower and 119 lb-ft of torque. However, there is a choice between a 6-speed automatic transmission and 6-speed manual transmission on the base trim. The higher trims come standard with the 6-speed automatic transmission. The Accent reaches 60 MPH from zero in 8.5 seconds and can manage a combined fuel economy of 32 MPG. While we’re on the topic of choices, the 7 striking colors the Accent comes in really pull you towards itself.
