The Hyundai Accent was initially introduced for the 1995 model year. It was first made available as a compact coupe/sedan and a three-door hatchback and slotted right into the lineup in place of the Excel. When it first debuted, the Accent was outfitted with a 1.5L inline four-cylinder engine rated at 92 horsepower and mated to either a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic. In 1996, the GT versions of the Accent parts were given a slight boost with a 1.6L DOHC inline four-cylinder good for 105 horsepower. As for the model's dimensions, the Hyundai Accent measured in with a wheelbase of 94.5 inches, a width of 63.8 inches, a height of 54.9 inches, and an overall length of 162.1 inches (hatchbacks came in at 161.4 inches).
In 2000, the second generation of the Hyundai Accent debuted in two body styles: sedan and hatchback. Unlike the previous generation, the new Accent was a rebadged version of the Hyundai Verna. At its launch, it was equipped with a 1.5L four-cylinder engine which produced 89 horsepower. Once again, the engine was geared to either a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic. A year later, a 1.6L four-cylinder was added to the lineup offering 104 horsepower and by 2003, it replaced the 1.5L configuration. Accent GT models received 14" wheels and a stiffened sport-inspired suspension in 2004. When it came to the car's safety features and accessories, front-seat airbags became standard parts for GL hatchbacks and sedans in 2003 (2004 would see them become standard across the board). Antilock brakes were available as an option on all the 2005 Accents.
The third generation of the Hyundai Accent rolled off the line for 2006. The engine is a 1.6L four-cylinder capable of approximately 110 horsepower. Once again, the engine is directed through either a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic. For the third series of the vehicle, the Accent is sold as a three-door hatchback and four-door sedan. Trim levels for the Accent include the GS, SE, and GLS. Both the GS and SE are hatchbacks while the GLS is assembled only as a four-door sedan. All three trims get the 110 hp 1.6L four-cylinder. For the third generation, the Hyundai Accent has a wheelbase of 98.4 inches, a width of 66.7 inches, a height of 57.9 inches, and an overall length of 168.5 inches (hatchbacks come in at 159.2 inches). Since its arrival, the Hyundai Accent has been noticed throughout the industry. It has been a contender for Motor Trend magazine's Car of the Year award (2000, 2006), named an Edmunds.com Editor's Most Wanted Vehicle (2007), a Consumer Guide Best Buy (2008), and a Consumer Guide Recommended Buy (2009).
The Hyundai Accent is a more than respectable representative of the compact generation. Boasting as much style as any other in its class, the Hyundai Accent is known for offering efficient performance with a reasonable price tag. It's lean, mean, smooth, and fashionable, not to mention nice and comfy on the inside. The only thing missing from the Accent is your sense of individuality. After all, it's your personal touch that makes this car a potential all-star.
