Hyundai has become a force to be reckoned with in the automobile industry, as they have been improving many different elements of their vehicles – under the hood and with the exterior styling. The 2012 Hyundai Accent is proof that their hard work is paying off. This is a nice looking car that is versatile, fuel efficient, and affordable.

Key Features

The vehicle features height adjustable cloth seats, a split-folding rear seatback, power door locks, one-touch power button windows, a remote trunk release, tilt-adjustable steering wheel, dual vanity mirrors, front reading lights, six speakers, a USB connection, and a stereo.

Changes for 2012

The 2012 model is a complete change from the prior Accents. It has a brand new look along with a different engine and a number of features. They also have a 5-door version available. The 5-door model offers a number of additional features including steering mounted audio controls, Bluetooth, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a roof spoiler.

What We Like

In addition to the great new look, one of the things that we like the most about the 2012 Hyundai Accent is the fuel efficiency. It’s easily one of the most efficient vehicles on the market today, and can help drivers save substantially at the pump.

What Concerns Us

While the vehicle has some great features and there is nothing inherently wrong with it, is not as fun to drive as many of the other cars in the same class.

Available Models

The 2012 Hyundai Accent is available in the GLS trim and the GS, which is the 5-door model, as well as the SE. All of the models have the same .5-liter 4-cylinder engine, as well as a 6-speed manual transmission. It offers 138 horsepower @ 6,300 RPM, 123lb of torque @ 4,850 RPM. It also happens to get 28 MPG in the city and 37 MPG on the highway.
