2013 Hyundai Accent Hatchback GS
After a redesign for the 2012 model year, the 2013 Hyundai Accent Hatchback has a sporty look with plenty to offer buyers at a low starting price.
All versions of the Accent are powered by a 138-horsepower 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that is rated at 28 mpg city and 37 mpg highway, regardless of whether the six-speed manual or automatic transmission is chosen.
The base model of the Accent Hatchback is the GS, which comes standard with such features as dual-power heated side mirrors, power windows and door locks, remote keyless entry, six-way adjustable driver's seat, 60/40-split folding rear seat, a tilt steering wheel and a six-speaker audio system with satellite and MP3 radio capability and an iPod/USB auxiliary input jack.
The Hyundai Accent SE, which starts at $16,095, also comes standard with sport-tuned steering and steering-wheel-mounted cruise control and audio controls as well as Bluetooth hands-free technology.
