2008 Hyundai Accent SE 2dr Hatchback w/XM (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


A lot of car for what you pay. The gas mileage is fantastic, I get about 32 to 34 mpg. The interior is great but you can tell that the plastic on the inside doors would scratch easily your not careful. I have the SE model and it comes with the stiffer suspension which really improves handling. Acceleration is very decent too because I have a manual. Don't get an automatic, the manual is cheaper, lighter and a lot more fun to drive. (Beware the trunk is tiny) Also buy the SE coupe as its the only Accent model with ABS which has already helped me out this winter. IMO ABS is pretty important. XM radio is great, even has a input jack for an MP3 player. CD player is also MP3 enabled.

Best Features

XM Radio, ABS, Gas mileage, Handling, Peppy acceleration.

Worst Features

Cover more of the inside of the doors with cloth material or use a different plastic. Add a "miles to empty" feature to trip computer.
