About Hyundai Accent
Just because a car is cheap doesn’t mean it needs to look cheap, and the 2022 Hyundai Accent offers dignified styling despite its bargain-basement price tag. We like it enough that we named it to our Editors’ Choice list. All models come with a 120-hp four-cylinder engine with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). It’s not exciting, but it gets the job done and does so while sipping fuel. The interior, which is also unexciting but functional, offers modern conveniences and even some luxuries. The loaded Limited model costs less than $21,000 and offers heated seats, touchscreen infotainment, and push-button start. No matter which trim you choose, the Accent’s appearance is mature and contemporary, saving you from the embarrassment of being outed as a penny pincher.
Both the base SE and midrange SEL models of the Accent receive a new anti-theft immobilizer as standard for 2022. Sadly, the six-speed manual transmission has been dropped from the Accent’s lineup for 2022
