I bought the Accent because it was a more comfortable ride than it's American counterparts, was more affordable than the other foreign competitors, and it has a great manufacturer's warranty that goes with it. I've taken it on several 5+ hour trips and gets about 36 on the highway. Handles pretty well, but only thing is the 110 horsepower leaves a little something to be desired. I had no problem however navigating the interstates at 70+ speeds. In terms of value it is the best I could find for being a young adult and using the car only for myself and I work in the auto industry so I did a lot of research.
Love this car
2010 Hyundai AccentAmelita Jo - Grand Prairie, TX02/27/2012
For the price this car is great! It's sporty and fun and compact which I love but yet it still has plenty of room. Granted the back seat isn't huge it can still fit two people in the back. Hyundai did good by designing this car
I drove a 1995 Saturn SL1 for more than 240,000 miles. I was looking for a car like it, and the Hyundai Accent seems to fit. Of course, it has new features, like curtain airbags and a digital odometer. Like the Saturn, it doesn't have a lot of acceleration onto the freeway, but it gets good gas mileage. I commute on the freeway and have been getting a little over 30 miles to a gallon. The front seat is comfortable with good visibility. The backseat has little legroom when the front seats are pushed back. Overall, I feel the car offers a good value for the price.
