2012 Hyundai Accent GLS 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 6M)


The car looks very nice inside and out, has excellent head and leg room, and excellent driver visibility on all sides. The rear view mirror has a bit of a letterbox view, which feels a bit constricted but offers all the visibility you need.

I've been getting fuel efficiency in the high 30s on my commute. The 6-speed manual transmission has adequate pick-up when you need it and the road noise is minimal. The clutch is a bit soft. The dashboard instruments and controls are clean and clear.

The trunk is quite spacious, and the back seat can fold down to provide additional room if needed. All in all, the car seems much roomier and better appointed than I would expect in a subcompact.

Best Features

The sound system is a delight, and the well-controlled road noise means that you can appreciate it while tooling down the expressway. The fold-down arm rest on the driver's side is more comfortable than I was expecting it to be.

Worst Features

Add lumbar support to the driver's seat and include a spare tire and jack.
