2020 Hyundai Accent
If you’re looking for a new vehicle but you’re not convinced that you have to follow the masses and opt for an SUV of some sort, there are some very good cars out there that represent extremely good value for money these days. For example, there are a number of outstanding Hyundai cars to choose from, and the Hyundai Accent 5-door hatch is a particularly impressive option for a whole range of buyers.
If you’re not familiar with the Accent, let’s take a closer look at the latest 2020 Hyundai Accent 5-door to find out what it has to offer.

2020 Hyundai Accent Exterior styling

There’s nothing particularly revolutionary about the styling of this fifth-generation Hyundai Accent, but that’s part of the point. This is a car designed to appeal to a wide audience, but some of the more radical styling a number of Japanese rivals have introduced over the last few years can be a little polarizing. The Accent is a smart, modern, good-looking car that’s hard to criticize, and the wedge-shape hatchback silhouette produces a naturally sporty look even for entry-level models.

2020 Hyundai Accent Trim levels

There seems to be a simple, uncomplicated philosophy behind the Hyundai Accent 5-door, and it’s perhaps most apparent with the model lineup. There are just three trims to choose from, although they’re all different enough for each to have its own identity. The entry model is the Essential, the mid-range variant is the Preferred, and the highest-spec model is the well-equipped Ultimate IVT.

2020 Hyundai Accent Engines

At first glance, you might think the one engine found in all versions of the Hyundai is the same as last year, but it isn’t. Yes, it’s still a 1.6-litre inline-four, but this is a revised version that’s more fuel-efficient than it was previously. The engine produces 120 horsepower and 113 lb.-ft. of torque, and it comes mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission. The optional transmission used to be a six-speed automatic, but that’s been replaced this year by a more efficient CVT that Hyundai refers to as its IVT. Whichever combination of trim, engine and transmission you go for, the 2020 Hyundai Accent is front-wheel-drive.

2020 Hyundai Accent Features and equipment

At its heart, the Accent is first and foremost an extremely affordable car, so entry-level models do stick to the basics to a degree. That’s still not bad these days though, and the entry-level Essential comes standard with power locks, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a couple of USB ports, a rearview camera, and an infotainment system with four speakers and a 5.0-inch touchscreen.
If you want Bluetooth hands-free phone integration you’ll have to step up a level to the Preferred, which also gets you power windows with driver’s auto-down, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls and air conditioning. But if you want an infotainment system with a larger 7.0-inch touchscreen and the added convenience of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, you’ll have to go all the way to the top-of-the-range Ultimate trim level.

2020 Hyundai Accent Fuel economy

The Accent is as economical to run as it is affordable to buy. With the standard manual transmission, the Hyundai is rated at 7.8 L/100km in the city, 6.1 L/100km on the highway and 7.0 L/100km combined, while the IVT transmission improves those numbers to 7.3/6.0/6.7 L/100km.
