Compact sedan / Five-door
Owners typically rave about the Accent’s great looks, great overall value, surprisingly roomy cabin, relatively high-quality feel, and good performance from the braking system.
History / Description
With a new platform, a new powertrain and significantly advanced styling, the current-generati
At a glance, it looks like they shrunk down a Hyundai Sonata, and that’s just fine. The 2018 Hyundai Accent is a small car (compact, technically), but it’s also a real looker. It’s bold. Blocky. Edgy. Probably, nobody will say it looks “precious”. It looks like a big car, just smaller.
Be careful with your speed on the highway: here’s one of
With over 27 percent market share in 2016 it’s safe to say the Hyundai Accent is the heaviest hitter in the sub-compact segment. Hyundai sold 19,198 Accents last year, more than double the next-best Honda Fit’s 8,622.
But this refresh could see the Accent leave the segment it has dominated and move up into an entirely new weight class.
In Canada, the Hyundai Accent sits at the very top of the bottom. By that, we mean this smallest offering from Hyundai dominates the subcompact segment. It has been on top for the past nine years, and currently snags about 20 percent of market share. The arrival of the all-new fifth-generation 2018 Hyundai Accent is good news for those pragmatic Ca
It would be more than generous to call it a "classic" - though I'm rather fond of my 25-year-old Mazda hatchback. But after a frosty commute – wind whistling through decayed door seals while I prayed fervently for the heat vents to emit more than a warm breath – I just couldn't wait to climb into a brand new press car.
This week, it's a 2015 Hy
There is almost nothing Hyundai won’t sell you. An upscale sport sedan? Sure! Although they’re trying to pull the Toyota/Lexus rebranding trick with Genesis, the G70 is frankly excellent. A family-oriented crossover? The Santa Fe is a long-time Canadian favourite, and we should be getting a new three-row model any time now.
Exactly what most
Hyundai is revealing an all-new Accent subcompact for 2018, and they will be doing it at the Canadian International Auto Show next week in Toronto . Why the Toronto show for the reveal? It could have something to do with the popular 2017 Hyundai Accent having nearly one-third of the subcompact market in Canada.
While we wait for the full reve
Hyundai says it will continue selling its five-door Accent hatchback here when a redesigned 2018 model debuts next year, but it will not be sold in the United States.
According to Automotive News Canada , Hyundai USA is dropping the Accent hatch in favour of a new crossover to be called the Kona, but will keep the Accent sedan in its lineup. Th
Little cars are big-time popular with Canadians, and models that offer great efficiency and versatility in a small package are highly sought after in today’s world of high fuel prices and savvier-than-ever shoppers.
Find a healthy copy of one of the models below, and you’re on the road to high-efficiency flexibility, with money to spare.
For those of us who are frugal by nature, a new car that sells for under $15,000 is almost as exciting as Free Coffee Week at McDonalds. Starting at $14,498, the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 ES is one of the least expensive four-door sedans in Canada. The least expensive sedan in Canada right now is the 2017 Hyundai Accent L sedan priced at just $13,8
Used to be, a subcompact car purchase was your one-way ticket to a “you-get-what-you-pay-for” automotive purgatory. Noise, uninspired dynamics, snail-like progress and low-rent digs were your rewards for being frugal. Not so now, as the game has advanced considerably with the likes of the feisty Ford Fiesta, the well-appointed Kia Rio and Hyundai A
All-new for its fourth generation, the 2018 Kia Rio 5 is a subcompact hatch that punches well above its weight in terms of style, comfort, and technology. Based on the same platform as the Hyundai Accent, and styled by Kia’s California and German design centres (led by Peter Schreyer), the new Rio 5 is lower and wider than most of its competito
If you head down to your local Toyota showroom and test drive a 2017 Toyota Yaris Hatchback, you’ll probably like its small size, nimble road manners, reasonable fuel economy, hatchback versatility and low price.
The Yaris hatchback has fallen behind its newer rivals
But if you test drive one of its key competitors such as the Honda Fit
“What I want,” the stereotypical customer says, “is Apple CarPlay, and emergency front braking, and heated seats, and lane departure warning, and a remote starter, and pushbutton start, and alloy wheels. And… say what ? It’s going to be how much ?”
And yes, I can really use “fun” and “twelve bucks under ten grand” in the same sentence.
First introduced in North America for 2014, Nissan’s Versa Note hatchback received a bit of a styling update for 2017 with a new “V-motion” style grille at the front and upgraded fascia at the rear. It’s a little bit of visual excitement for a car that tends towards the subcompact segment’s middle ground, and puts its emphasis on efficiency and i
