With the newly redesigned Accent, Hyundai has a good valued subcompact car which beats its rivals in size and styling. It is offered two ways, as a 4-door sedan and a 5-door hatchback, latter of which makes a real statement design-wise. 2015 Hyundai Accent offers solid, but not extravagant drive. Exterior design is really good for a compact, and its inside is solidly finished as well. Fuel economy ratings are its forte, but the biggest advantages Hyundai Accent 2015 has are its price and size which is much bigger than in the rest of the subcompact market competitors’ vehicles.
2015 Hyundai Accent review
The new 2015 Hyundai Accent comes with minor design changes. Exterior design is perky enough for a subcompact and Accent features open-mouth hexagonal front end fascia with split bumper. Roundly trapezoid headlights and crescent-like available foglights look quite well on Hyundai’s first real design statement. Hatchback is finished with a good looking, big vertically positioned curved tail-lights and a sturdy bumper, while sedan follows slightly more conventional, but still quite good routine.
The Hyundai Accent 2015 Interior styling doesn’t bring anything out of the ordinary. Hard plastic layout and cloth door panel inserts might feel a little bit rugged, but for a price range Accent fits in, it is still a good job done by the Koreans. There’s no leather at all and the most you’ll get are premium cloth upholstery in the SE models. Cabin itself is offered two ways, in terms of color arrangements.
