Changes for 2010

The biggest change for the 2010 Accent is its mileage. All trim levels see at least a 1 mpg bump, and the all-new base trim level, called Blue, gets a large jump versus the 2009 base model. The Blue comes only as a two-door hatchback and gets 28/36 mpg city/highway, versus 27/33 mpg for the base 2009 Accent.

Those mileage gains come with no changes to horsepower or torque.

A smaller change is the addition of a standard iPod/USB port for all trim levels. Otherwise, the 2010s should be nearly identical to the 2009 I detail below.
