Hyundai Accent Review for 2016 Model Year
The Hyundai Accent is a popular subcompact car that boasts fun features, an agile driving feel and terrific safety, all at an affordable price. This model year not much is changing on the car, except the Accent's trim levels are getting new, more streamlined names. To learn more about this year's model of the Accent, keep reading our 2016 Hyundai Accent review.
For 2016, Hyundai has renamed the Accent's three trim levels to be more consistent. They include: SE Sedan, SE Hatchback and Sport Hatchback. Looking first at the SE Sedan, this model of the Accent gets 14-inch steel wheels, cloth seating and metal paint interior accents. The SE Hatchback model adds a driver's blind-spot mirror, heated side mirrors and a rear wiper. Shoppers can add two great packages to the SE Sedan - Popular and Style - that add features such as cruise control, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, premium cloth seats and rear disc brakes.
The top-of-the-line Sport Hatchback - a favorite option of our 2016 Hyundai Accent review - comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, a body color rear spoiler, projector headlights with LED accents, front foglights, side mirror-imbedded turn signals, Piano Black interior accents, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and Bluetooth connectivity.
Under the hood, the 2016 Hyundai Accent in Carrollton is powered by a 1.6-liter direct-injection four-cylinder engine that produces 137 horsepower and 123 lb.-ft. of torque. Drivers can choose between a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic on the car; we recommend choosing the automatic for optimal fuel economy.
Safety features on the Accent include six airbags, electronic stability and traction control, a tire pressure monitoring system, keyless entry and anti-lock brakes. SE drivers can choose the optional driver's blind-spot mirror on their model, which comes standard on the hatchback models.
