The 2012 Hyundai Accent delivers more power and better fuel economy than any car in its class. Greater ride and handling refinement can be found in several competitors, but the Accent’s price and features will override those concerns.

The all-new Hyundai Accent a much better car than the outgoing model. It’s aggressively priced and offers a solid combination of value, utility and fuel economy. It’s a complete package for an affordable price.

The 2012 Hyundai Accent is not a cheerless subcompact for the worker bee who can’t afford anything better. It is the kind of car that inspires said bee to get out and see the country when he’s not working.

It’s clear that the 2012 Hyundai Accent is intent on eclipsing the competition. The new Korean hatch has all the makings of one of the best all-around vehicles in the segment. With plenty of power, space and fuel efficiency in a low-cost package, Hyundai has hit all the right notes.

The new Hyundai Accent SE is a good car that’s painfully close to being a great one. The stuff that can’t be changed easily or cheaply is all here: tastefully attractive styling, good driving position, refined, relatively powerful engine, competent chassis.

We miss the old Accent due to its chuckable nature, but this new car does a good enough job of retaining that drivability while adding in a great deal of class, style, and refinement, which makes it a winner in our books.
