Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Hyundai Accent clouds the new-or-used question, but only in well-equipped Limited trim.

Pros
City-street nimble
Pretty, if not distinctive
Well-equipped as a Limited
Quieter cabin

Cons
No more hatchback
No AEB on SE or SEL
Full-throttle noise
Gas mileage isn’t tops in class

No need for excuses here: The Accent, with its distinctive design and fuel-sipping engine, is a fine choice for an economical car. The interior feels more upscale than that of the competition, but the Accent is available only as a sedan. Its 130-hp 1.6-liter inline-four pairs with either a standard perky six-speed manual or an optional sluggish six-speed automatic.

Pros
Mature design,
nicely equipped,
overall sophistication.

Cons
Modest fuel economy,
sluggish automatic,
weaker value than the base model.

The 2018 Hyundai Accent is all-new. It rides atop a new chassis that is a half-inch longer than before, yielding slightly more interior space and passenger room. Increased use of high-strength steel in the frame and the body promises improved handling dynamics, and the revised four-cylinder engine delivers better fuel economy.

PROS
Comfortable ride and impressively quiet cabin
Spacious interior is upscale for the segment
Long warranty coverage provides peace of mind
Fuel efficiency is more competitive

CONS
Enhanced safety aids only available on top trim level
Lacks in-dash navigation but connects to smartphone nav apps

The 2018 Nissan Sentra is a compact car that does what it says on the package: it’s roomy, quiet, and relatively affordable.

Pros
Standard automatic emergency braking
Decent fuel efficiency
Competitive standard features
Roomy rear seat

Cons
Turbo models aren’t as much fun as we hoped
Wandering 6-speed manual
Leisurely acceleration in most models
Top-end trims are too much

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2018, Nissan has made minor adjustments to the Sentra's feature availability. Automatic emergency braking for imminent collisions is now standard on most Sentra trim levels.

PROS
Spacious backseat and trunk for the class
Priced lower than many rivals
User-friendly control layout

CONS
Less engaging driving experience than many competitors
Seats aren't particularly suitable for taller drivers
Slow acceleration on most models

By:

An entertaining powertrain does not always result in an entertaining car. Case in point: the 2018 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo. In spite of its quite good forced-induction inline-four, this Sentra isn’t quite a competitive sport compact.

Pros
Agreeable engine,
lots of rear legroom,
comfortable ride.

Cons
Awkward seating position,
uncomfortable seats,
not as engaging as a sporty model should be.
