Review Summary:

Over the years, designers at Hyundai have ditched the status-quo and opted for designs with more pizzazz across the model range. The 2014 is a testament to that when compared to rivals such as the Honda City and the Nissan Sunny.

Pros

New headlight design, Price

Cons

Lack of storage compartments for rear passengers

Looks

The 2014 Hyundai Accent is a pleasant sight. With minor alterations since 2010, the Accent looks better than ever in its latest guise. New headlights with a LED strip on top and another row of LED jewels around the bottom cocoon the xenon bulb and indicator lamps while adding more personality to the face of the Accent.

Feels

Hop into the Accent and it continues to impress with its neat and fuss free centre console. Hyundai has compensated the lack of a centre arm rest by fitting a small pull down armrest on the driver’s seat itself. However, in order to keep costs and weight down, 80% of the interior is made up of hard plastics, including the sun visor! Though leg and headroom in the rear seats are sufficient, passengers could find storage space to stowaway personal belonging a little tight.

Engineering

The chassis for the 2014 Accent is constructed using a collision load dispersal mechanism. In the event of  a head-on impact, the force is distributed along three paths, absorbing energy to protect those in the vehicle.

What’s on offer?

The 2014 Hyundai Accent is available with either a 1.4 litre or a 1.6 litre unit under the hood. The 1.4 litre is rated at 106 horsepower and 136 Nm of torque while the 1.6 litre makes a slightly higher 122 horsepower and 156 Nm of torque. To add a dash of excitement to the drive, Hyundai has fitted the Accent with a manual shift option to toy with, when in the mood to drive enthusiastically.

Summing it…

With a price tag of AED 46,000 to AED 53,500 the Hyundai Accent is a good looking, economical and comfortable car for a small family.
