SPACIOUS INTERIOR WITH PLENTY OF CARGO ROOM

Other less exciting matters like cargo space and interior volume are also high points for the Accent, with rather generous helpings of both available in the Hyundai. The company says that the Accent boasts more cargo room than the Nissan Juke and greater interior volume than the Audi A4, no small feat for a vehicle with a fairly minute footprint.

If youre looking for exact numbers, the sedans trunk space is rated at 13.7 cu-ft. The 5-door hatch gets even more space with 21.2 cu-ft out back, which then grows to 47.5 cu-ft when you drop the second row. Its lots of space, but still no one comes close to the near 60 cu-ft available in the Fit.

Our 5-door model came well equipped with the requisite features like Bluetooth connectivity, iPod jacks, ABS, stability control and curtain airbags. Retailing for $15,795 (plus another $1,000 for the automatic gearbox), the Accent also represents substantial value in this segment, offering excellent bang-for-buck. If youre on a real budget a base GLS sedan ca be had for $12,445, although youll want to spend an extra $1,750 to add on air conditioning and power windows.
