Hyundai Accent Sport 2018 review: snapshot

EXPERT RATING
6.5
The cheapest way into the Hyundai family is still the Accent, but the brand recently trimmed the range down to a single trim level.

The cheapest way into the Hyundai family is still the Accent, but the brand recently trimmed the range down to a single trim level, ditching the entry-level Active and top-spec SR, and replacing both with the best-of-both-worlds Accent Sport, which is available as a hatch or as a sedan.

Regardless of which body style you choose, the Accent Sport will set you back $15,490 for a six-speed manual and $17,490 for a six-speed automatic, with both powered by a 1.6-litre petrol engine good for 103kW at 6300rpm and 167Nm at 4850rpm. 

Outside, you'll find 16-inch alloy wheels, while inside you’ll find cloth seats, cruise control, air-conditioning, steering wheel controls, plus power windows and mirrors. Tech stuff is covered by an Apple CarPlay-equipped 5.0-inch touchscreen that pairs with a four-speaker stereo.

Standard safety equipment includes six airbags (dual front, front-side and curtain), a reversing camera and the usual suite of driving, traction and braking aids. Yes, that's a short list, but the Accent was awarded the maximum five-star ANCAP safety rating when tested in 2011.
