Hyundai Accent 1.4 GL Review
Simple joys

Hyundai claims that, if you drive an Accent, you will retain style, performance and refinement despite choosing a compact car. This is bold, but it would be naïve to dismiss Hyundai. As we have seen from the Hyundai Genesis and Sonata, there is weight behind their words and we’re keen to see what they can do with the Accent. Now in its 4th generation, the current model has actually been on sale worldwide since 2010 so it is technically not a new model. How does it stack up?
