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 Volkswagen Passat does little wrong, but its stoicism means it isn’t much fun.

Pros
Massive interior
Conservative, quality feel
Good ride quality
Lots of standard safety tech

Cons
Totally devoid of personality
V-6 is very thirsty
Some cheap bits inside
Could a mid-size sedan be less interesting?
