Pros

Affordability; hybrid-like mileage; strong standard feature list; impressive interior passenger room; available as a hatchback or sedan


Value Writeup

The Hyundai Accent is a subcompact available as either a sedan or a hatchback. Well-equipped in standard form, the Accent features an impressive 92.2 total cubic feet of passenger room, defying the myth of the small car's cramped cabin. Fuel economy is also impressive, averaging 28 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway, thanks in part to special low rolling resistance tires.


Model Highlights

The 2015 Hyundai Accent is available in three trim levels: the GS hatchback, the Sport hatchback and the GLS sedan. All trims have a 1.6L 4-cylinder engine that makes 138 horsepower. The engine is mated to a standard 6-speed manual or an optional 6-speed automatic transmission. MacPherson struts are used in front and a torsion beam suspension is used in the rear.

The GLS 4-door sedan comes relatively well equipped with a 6-way manually adjustable seat, one-touch triple-flash turn signals, sliding sun visors, a driver's side blind spot mirror, center armrest with cup holders, seatback pockets, illuminated vanity mirrors, a sunglass holder, air conditioning, a trip computer and a 6-speaker CD and MP3 player. When equipped with the Premium Package, the GLS also includes projector headlights with LED accents, a driver's side auto-up window and tilt/telescopic steering wheel.

Standard equipment on the GS is similar to that of the GLS despite the differences in bodystyle. The GS does include a rear windshield wiper while the GLS does not.

The Sport adds 16-inch alloy wheels with performance tires, rear disc brakes, a sport-tuned suspension, fog lights and projector headlights with LED accents. Power windows with driver's side auto-up, power locks and power mirrors are standard on the Sport and optional on the GS and GLS. The Sport also gets a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The steering wheel comes complete with controls for the stereo and cruise control and features tilt/telescoping. Buyers wanting a sunroof will need to order the Sport trim in order to select the $900 option.

All 2015 trims come standard with 4-wheel anti-lock brakes. Advanced front airbags, side impact airbags, side head and rear head airbags, tire pressure monitoring and seatbelt pretensioners are also standard.


Model News

The Accent gets a mild exterior refresh for 2015, with new headlights, new wheels and a new grill. The interior car has also been touched up with new seating fabrics. Equipment levels are mostly unchanged though the GLS sedan is now available with a Popular Equipment Package. Last year's SE model has now been renamed as the Accent Sport.

Summary
Hyundai Motor America (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2015 Accent vehicles manufactured September 15, 2014, to February 10, 2015. In very cold temperatures, the occupant detection system (ODS) may not be able to determine if a child restraint seat is in the front passenger seat.

Consequence
If the ODS fails to detect that the seat is occupied by a child restraint seat, the front air bag will not be deactivated and, in the event of a crash necessitating front air bag deployment, the air bag deployment could cause increased risk of injury to the occupant in the child restraint seat.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will correct ODS software, free of charge. The recall began on June 4, 2015. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-855-671-3059. Hyundai's number for this recall is 129.

Dates of Manufacture

Side Barrier Rating Driver

Rollover Note
Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. 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.

Frontal Barrier Crash Rating Passenger

Combined Side Rating Front Seat

Side Barrier Rating Passenger Rear Seat

Side Barrier Rating Note
Due to the intrusion of the left rear door during the side impact test, the interior door panel struck the torso of the rear passenger dummy, causing a high lower spine acceleration. High lower spine accelerations, in excess of 82 g's, indicate a higher likelihood of thoracic injury. Although not included in the star rating, the rear passenger's abdominal rib deflection was elevated.
