The Hyundai Accent - or Excel, if you were in Australia for the first generation - is among Hyundai’s most successful-ever models.
Since 1994, this subcompact has undergone a lot of change, but has retained several key reliable features that kept buyers returning.
It was even honored in 2008 with the title “Most Dependable Subcompact Car” by J.D. Power, and they don’t come much more authoritative than that.
Naming has always been a bit of a funny thing for the Accent. It’s had different names at different times in its development, all depending on which market you were buying one in.
The latest generation is known in Russia, for instance, as the Hyundai Solaris. The fourth-generation model (2010-2019) was known as the Hyundai Excel III in Indonesia, and even as the Dodge Attitude in Mexico.
Badging aside, the Hyundai Accent is a car built to challenge the supremacy of models like the Toyota Corolla.
The latest fifth-generation model was powered by both petrol or diesel engine options, ranging from 1.0L to 1.6L for gasoline, and 1.4 to 1.6L in diesel engines. Transmission was a 6-speed manual, 6-speed automatic, or a 7-speed CVT.
The US market only gets the sedan since demand for the hatchback wasn’t so strong. So is the story of many a hatchback in the pickup-truck- and SUV-loving US of A.
The sedan features some great interior touches, though, like Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, keyless entry, heated front seats and more. Still, it hasn’t managed to outsell the Toyota Corolla, averaging from 50,000 to 75,000 units a year in the US.
