The 2013 Hyundai Accent is Taking the Market by Storm

The Hyundai Accent has been around for over 15 years, and Hyundai continues to make great improvements to the car each and every year.

The 2013 model is certainly no exception, with its new standard six speaker setup for audio, as well as the newly standard power heated mirrors on the outside – you can tell the company is continually looking for ways to improve the driving experience.

2013 Hyundai Accent Review

The Engine on this car is a fairly capable 1.6 liter I-4 engine that puts out about 138 horsepower and full throttle. This puts the Accent about middle of the pack when it comes to other mid-sized sedans. While the engine is more than enough to do what the car was designed to do, it still has a little something extra in order to give you a burst of speed when you need it. With a sub-8 second 0-60 time, it can accelerate just as well as any other car in its class.

The transmission on the 2013 Accent is available in both 6 speed manual and 6 speed automatic, giving you a little better gas mileage than you would find on 5 speed manual or automatic transmissions. It is also a 2 WD to save on both engine tear and fuel economy. One of the newest accolades for the Accent comes from the fact that it received an Ultra-Low Emission rating, meaning it gives off far fewer emissions than the majority of its competitors.

How the Hyundai Accent Keeps You Comfortable

Riding in the 2013 Hyundai Accent makes you appreciate how the updated shock absorbers really take away the small bumps you might experience when you aren’t driving on an interstate highway. A smooth ride has always been one of the nicest things about the Hyundai Accent, simply because being jostled around in a car isn’t fun for anyone.

Hyundai Accent 2013Cushy seats have always appeared in this vehicle, and the 2013 version is no different, especially when you take into account it can fit 5 people pretty easily. Comfort is pretty high on Hyundai’s list of necessities for all of its vehicles and the Accent is definitely no exception.

Accent Fuel Economy

Since fuel economy plays such a huge part in deciding what kind of vehicle to buy, Hyundai has made various tweaks and changes to this year’s model in order to maximize fuel efficiency; while at the same time, helping to work toward the Ultra-Low Emission rating it has already received. The Accent gets 30 MPG in the city and 40 MPG on the highway. These figures are a little better than most 2013 mid-sized sedan models and goes to show you the dedication that Hyundai puts into their vehicles.

30 MPG in the city is extremely good since the stop and traffic can keep out of the higher gears a lot of the time, but it is the 40 MPG on the highway that is really impressive. A 10 MPG jump from city to highway is thanks mostly to the way the Accent was designed. It’s frame is curved in such a way that air passing around it doesn’t impact it as much as with other vehicles. The Hyundai Accent 2013 is one of the best mid-sized sedans available if you are looking at a strictly fuel efficiency standpoint.

2013 Hyundai Accent Pricing

For an average price of around $15,000, the 2013 Hyundai Accent is a great value owing both to its great fuel economy, and the fact that it has a 60 month/60,000 mile warranty. The sedan and hatchback versions may vary slightly in pricing but they are both well worth the money. When you can find a great car that seats 5 passengers comfortably and that retains resale value very well, you know you have a keeper.

If you are looking to get a good car for commuting back and forth to work and going on family trips, the Accent may just be what you are looking for. Although it doesn’t have as many features as the 2013 Elantra, this model is very approachable for a more affordable budget. Hyundai is constantly striving to improve upon their previous model years, and they have done just that with an updated look and solid extras that can keep you both safe and comfortable on the road.
