What's New For 2018?
Many things are new on the overhauled 2018 Hyundai Accent. Hyundai extended the Accent's chassis by half an inch, thereby allowing for a little bit more interior space. The steel Hyundai used in the Accent's body is stronger and more durable than what was used in the past and promises an overall improved ride quality. Additionally, you will now get better fuel efficiency on the Accent as Hyundai made some important tweaks to the 4-cylinder engine. Of course, to keep up with the competition, Hyundai now offers far more standard and optional infotainment and safety features on the Accent. In keeping with the trend, the Accent now features a stunning cascading grille on the front fascia.
The 2018 Hyundai Accent is only available as a subcompact sedan, although it tends to border along the line of a compact car.
The all-new Hyundai Accent comes in three different trim levels. All three of these trims are powered by the same base 1.6-L 4-cylinder engine, which is capable of generating 130 hp and 119 lb-ft of torque. This engine can be matched with either a six-speed automatic or manual transmission. Also, all trims are front-wheel-drive only. The SE trim (which is the base) is equipped with the manual transmission, but the automatic can be ordered as an option. The SE trim's features include a 5-inch LCD touchscreen display panel and a steering wheel that is tilting-only. The mid-level SEL trim adds a number of standard and improved features, such as a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, voice command for Bluetooth, and a 7-inch display monitor. At the top of the line is the Limited trim, which sits atop upgraded 17-inch wheels (whereas the SE and SEL come with 15-inch wheels). It also features three years of Hyundai's Blue Link services, keyless entry, and front seats which are heated.
The 2018 Hyundai Accent isn't the speediest vehicle in its segment, but it is a vast improvement over models that have been put out over the past decade. The body feels remarkably well-controlled when winding along narrow, cascading roadways and the brand-new chassis reinforces this sense of stability. The vehicle's torque vector control feature does a fantastic job at keeping a check on the Accent's understeering. The only really noticeable disturbance in performance is from the rear end of the Accent, which will bump and sway a bit when going over broken or loose pavement. Otherwise, you can expect a noiseless and well-controlled ride quality from the Accent.
The 2018 Accent gets relatively decent EPA ratings regardless of whether you get the manual or automatic transmission. In fact, the numbers are only ever-so-slightly different between the manual (which gets 28 mpg city/37 mpg highway) and the automatic (which gets 28 mpg city/38 mpg highway). These numbers aren't the best, but Hyundai compromised a little bit on fuel economy when tweaking the engine.
Overall, the 2018 Hyundai Accent has a lot to offer for the model year. The changes that Hyundai made were well worth the wait, and the new Accent is a spunky little vehicle that begs to be test-driven.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Hyundai Accent
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Hyundai Accent invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
Note: All Hyundai Accent MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
