The 2019 Hyundai Accent ranked #7 in Subcompact Cars. Currently the Hyundai Accent has a score of 8.2 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 23 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
User-friendly tech features
Roomy seats
Decent handling

Cons
Sluggish acceleration
Ride quality drops over rough roads

Freshly overhauled last year, the 2019 Hyundai Accent sedan is roomier, safer and more fuel-efficient than before. It drives even sportier than it looks, thanks to a nicely calibrated suspension and an available manual transmission. We're not talking autobahn-ready performance here, but the Accent is surprisingly nimble, and it makes for a sensible and stylish subcompact choice.

Pros
Comfortable ride and impressively quiet cabin
Spacious interior with solid, rattle-free build quality
Long warranty coverage provides peace of mind
Excellent real-world fuel economy

Cons
Enhanced safety aids only available on top trim level
USB port struggles to charge a phone
Cloth seats are uncomfortable and trap heat
Lacks onboard navigation but connects to smartphone nav apps
