HYUNDAI ACCENT Used Car Review

The Accent was an improvement in virtually every area compared with the model it replaced - the Excel that sold by the bucket load but harmed Hyundai's reputation with its poor build quality. In 2011, the Accent adopted a more contemporary design and was positioned between the i20 city car and i30 small car. With the i20 now gone, the Accent is the South Korean brand's sole city car offering. While ageing, the Accent was last updated in 2017.

Pros

Cons

  • 1.6-litre engine powerful for the city-car class
  • Spacious cabin
  • Large boot - and even bigger with sedan
  • 2011 models onwards benefited from local engineering work
  • 1.6-litre would welcome more torque and refinement
  • Ride not consistently smooth across all surfaces
  • Not as cheap as it once was
  • Standard safety features off the segment pace

SIMILAR MODELS TO HYUNDAI ACCENT

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: HYUNDAI ACCENT (2011 ON)

Like most latter-day Hyundais, the Accent appears to present with a pretty clean bill of health.

The first thing to check, however, is the condition of the leather-clad steering wheel. In some cases, the leather can start to flake or peel, and this has been observed in other Hyundai models, not just the Accent.

While you have the microscope out, check that the panels line up and are all one colour. If they're not, you could be looking at badly repaired crash damage.

There have also been a few Accents that have had difficulty shifting from Park, the cruise-control not working, the engine starting or the brake-lights failing to operate.

Believe it or not, all these apparently diverse problems could all be traced back to a faulty wiring terminal. Hyundai developed an improved replacement terminal which dealers were fitting.
