I've now owned my Accent for 2 weeks and I have nothing but good things to say about my purchase.
The styling is impressive and they have definitely stepped up in terms of overall quality and features for this model. I love the Eco and the MPG feature that helps me with gas mileage and all of this without affecting the torque.
They added the features that are available on the higher end models in their smaller model and it makes for a great little car.
The engine has the same power as my 2006 Elantra had and it drives smoothly all around.
The only issue I would pass on is the comfort of the headrests, which I got used to quickly. My wife not as much, but all in all the comfort is there
- Eco for steady acceleration
- MPG indicator to help with mileage
- Engine power for smaller car
- Overall driving
- Trunk size
- Overall styling
- Quality of components
- Backseat space (although if it was trully an issue, would have taken Elantra instead)
