The 2019 Hyundai Accent is an economically priced subcompact sedan that brings more to the table than most small economy cars. Buyers at dealerships like Riverside Hyundai tell us they appreciate the 2019 Accent, thanks to its exceptional handling, head-turning styling and great value. Last year, Hyundai redesigned the Accent with more interior room, more safety features and greater fuel economy. All 2019 Hyundai Accent models now have a restyled chrome grill. The SEL gets foglights and the Limited now has LED headlights as standard equipment.
The 2019 Hyundai Accent seats five passengers. When you buy a Hyundai in Riverside County, you can get the Accent in one of three trim levels: SE, SEL and Limited. Powering the 2019 Accent is a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 130 horsepower and 119 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the wheels through a six-speed automatic gearbox or a six-speed manual transmission. The Accent SE model gets the six-speed manual transmission standard, with the six-speed automatic available as an option. All models get front-wheel drive.
The Hyundai Accent received outstanding reviews from the automotive press. Motor Trend wrote: " ... buying a subcompact car doesn't mean you'll be driving something extremely basic. ... [The Accent is] better than the old car and quieter than rivals such as the Honda Fit, Nissan Versa, and Ford Fiesta. The car's exterior is stylish, and its driving dynamics have improved.”
