Model Highlights

The Accent comes in three trim levels -- the most expensive of which starts around $15,000. The GS hatchback is the bare-bones option, the SE hatchback is the most luxe, and the GLS four-door sedan is the happy medium. All three have a 1.6L 4-cylinder engine making 110 hp mated to a 5-speed manual, but a 4-speed automatic transmission is available as an option.

The GS is basic, but not stripped. Like all the Accents, it has advanced front airbags, side impact airbags, tire pressure monitoring and seatbelt pretensioners standard. The driver's seat can be manually adjusted six ways, plus the headrests are adjustable. The rear seat splits 60/40 and can be folded down for extra cargo space.

The GLS 4-door sedan adds standard body-colored mirrors, tinted glass, seatback pockets, a center armrest with cup holders, and illuminated vanity mirrors. Carpeted floor mats are an option across the model lineup, the GLS included.

The SE gets a bit sporty, with standard ABS and electronic brake force distribution, an option for the GLS that's not available on the GS. The SE also steps up to 16" alloy wheels, a sport-tuned suspension, and fog lights. Power outside mirrors and keyless entry are standard on the SE rather than optional, as they are on the other two models. The SE also gets the upgraded CD/XM/MP3 6-speaker stereo standard. It also has air conditioning, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and metallic interior accents. If you want a sunroof to accent your Accent, the SE is the only variant with that option.


Model News

There are few changes to the Accent for 2009, but fun options like XM satellite radio and an MP3 jack are still available. Thanks to minor tweaks, the gas economy is a bit higher than last year, putting it at 27 mpg city, 35 mpg highway.


Value Writeup

Econobox has become a bad word, but it seems Hyundai is out to redeem it with the Accent, which comes with the industry's best 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. With a starting price around $10,000 and a fully equipped model coming in well under $20,000, the stellar fuel economy seems like a bonus rather than a selling point. Six airbags, TPMS, eight-way adjustable driver's seat, tilt steering wheel and split folding rear seat are all standard for the sedan and both hatchback trim levels.

Summary
Hyundai Motor Company (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2007-2009 Accent and Tucson, model year 2007-2010 Elantra, model year 2007-2011 Santa Fe, model year 2008-2009 Veracruz, model year 2010-2011 Genesis Coupe, and model year 2011 Sonata vehicles. The stop lamp switch in the affected vehicles may malfunction. A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause an inability to deactivate the cruise control by depressing the brake pedal. Additionally, a malfunctioning stop lamp switch may also result in intermittent operation of the push-button start feature, affect the operation of the brake-transmission shift interlock feature, preventing the shifter from being moved out of the PARK position and cause the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) malfunction light to illuminate.

Consequence
Failure to illuminate the stop lamps during braking or inability to disengage the cruise control could increase the risk of a crash. Additionally, when the ignition is in the 'ON' position, the transmission shifter may be able to be moved out of Park without first applying the brake. This may lead to unintentional movement of the car which may increase the risk of a crash.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the stop lamp switch, free of charge. The safety recall began on April 22, 2013. Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's recall campaign number is 110.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
