2014 Hyundai Accent Adds Features, Equipment

By Matthew Askari | November 18, 2013
The 2014 Hyundai Accent is the Korean automaker's entry-level model, but now more than ever, it comes loaded with a high level of standard and available content. The new model receives a one-touch triple turn signal, sliding sun visors—really every car should have these—and a blind spot monitor on the driver's side. The entry-level audio system has also been improved with better voice recognition and a new button layout.
Five-door 2014 Hyundai Accent SE models, and four-door models equipped with the Premium Package will also get new projector headlights with LED accents, one touch auto-up windows on the driver's side, and a tilt and telescopic steering wheel. A fun, added piece of available equipment on the five-door Accent, is the B&M Racing Sport Shifter.
The 2014 Hyundai Accent will retain the 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine capable of 138 hp, which is more than any other subcompact car, save for the Chevrolet Sonic, which boasts the same 138 horses. We liked the Accent when we drove it, though it competes in a very tough segment with the likes of the Honda Fit, Ford Fiesta, Toyota Yaris, the aforementioned Chevy Sonic, the Nissan Versa, and the charming but underpowered Mazda2. The 2014 Hyundai Accent gets an EPA estimated 27 mpg city, and up to 38 mpg on the highway.
