Pros & cons


Cracking value, market-leading five-year warranty.


Styling is a bit clumsy.

Written by Parkers Published: 6 June 2019 Updated: 6 June 2019


This Accent shares the same name as the model that ran from 1994-1999, but it’s an all-new model. It also got a tweak in 2003. It’s a straight-forward, practical and reliable Focus-sized car – available as a three or five-door hatchback or a four-door saloon. The Accent is good value (it comes with a five-year/unlimited mileage warranty as standard) and reliable, but the blob-like styling will not appeal to all buyers and rivals hold there value better.
