This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Hyundai Accent (06-09) review.

Parkers overall rating: 2 out of 5 2.0

This model has not yet been crash tested by Euro NCAP. Posher models get ABS and EBD. CDX gets keyless entry and an alarm, base models are not that secure (or desirable to thieves).

Accent is a practical little car - so it's no surprise that there's a large boot. Hatchback is easy to access as it's wide and the tailgate opens quite high. But it could be a bit closer to the ground. Some useful cabin storage (and cupholders), but the glovebox could be a little larger.
