2013 Hyundai Accent: What Is It
Accent is the gateway into Hyundai's lineup. Offered as a 4-door sedan and 4-door hatchback, this subcompact car was the beneficiary of a complete redesign for the 2012 model year.
Hyundai is the parent company of Kia, which produces the Rio, which shares the Accent's platform. Accent is made in South Korea and competes against the Chevrolet Sonic, Ford Fiesta, Honda Fit, and Toyota Yaris.
2013 Hyundai Accent: What's New
Accent was new for 2012, but Hyundai is making a few changes for 2013. Most of them involve the base GLS sedan with manual transmission. That model gets a whole host of new standard equipment (more on that below), along with a corresponding jump in base price (about $2,000). All models receive standard heated outside mirrors and remote keyless entry. A power sunroof is a new option for the top-line SE hatchback.
2013 Hyundai Accent: Model Lineup, Features, and Options
Model designations are unchanged for 2013. The Accent sedan returns in its single GLS trim level. Hatchbacks reprise base GS and sporty SE. Previously optional on the manual-transmission GLS, air conditioning, satellite radio, USB port, power mirrors, and power windows are now standard. These features were standard on Accent GLS models equipped with the automatic transmission.
Remote keyless entry was standard only on hatchbacks in 2012, but it's now included on all 2013 Accents.
Some SE-exclusive features include a sport suspension (standard) and a new power sunroof (optional).
2013 Hyundai Accent: Engines, Transmissions, and Drive Wheels
Powering all Accents is a 138-horsepower 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine that teams with a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission.
2013 Hyundai Accent: Fuel Economy
EPA estimated fuel economy for the 2013 Hyundai Accent is unchanged from 2012. All models, regardless of transmission, score 30 mpg city/40 mpg highway.
Our testing is showing those numbers to be a bit optimistic. With the manual transmission, we averaged an OK-for-the-class 32.5 mpg. With the automatic, we haven't broken 30. One sedan got 29.6 mpg. Our long-term SE hatchback is checking in at 29.1 mpg over a bit more than 4,700 miles, and this is with a few extended highway trips included.
Accent uses regular-grade gasoline.
2013 Hyundai Accent: Safety Features
The 2013 Hyundai Accent includes a standard complement of expected and federally mandated safety features.
