The New Accent 1.4L Base is one of the highlights of Hyundai. In the UAE competes with Toyota Yaris Sedan and Honda City.
If you’re not among the throngs of American car buyers lining up to buy a new SUV, it’s comforting to know that there are still well-built, affordably-priced small sedans available for sale. Witness the 2021 Hyundai Accent. With a starting price around $16,000, the Accent is one of the least expensive new vehicles today, but Hyundai doesn’t make any of its three trims a penalty box. All three are powered by an unexciting-but-efficient 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine bolted to either a six-speed manual or a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). All Accents come with features that only a few years ago would be considered luxuries in the subcompact car segment, including power windows, air conditioning, and a six-way adjustable driver’s seat. Moving up to the SEL and Limited trims adds even more modern-day luxuries such as a larger 7.0-inch infotainment touchscreen, heated seats, and push-button start. Best of all, the Accent will never make you feel—or look–cheap thanks to grown-up styling and a no-fuss interior.
