The basic GL hatchback version of the 2011 Hyundai Accent is a steal, but the rest of the lineup doesn't have the strong value proposition—or feature set—that distinguishes Hyundai's other models.

Expert Quotes:

we missed audio controls on the leather wrapped steering wheel, but the stereo is right there

the SE plays happily, thanks to a host of upgrades over other Accent models, including stiffer springs, a thicker front anti-roll bar

The manually operated window cranks were mercifully light and quickly rolled up or down.

The 2011 Accent comes with quite a range of equipment; the three-door hatchback is offered in base GL, GS, and SE trims, while the sedan is available only in upscale GLS trim.

The base starts at less than $10,000 but includes a very slim set of features—there's no standard audio system, air conditioning, or power accessories. The GS hatch gets tilt steering and air conditioning, while the top SE model is the way to go for those who want a truly well-equipped car; it includes a sunroof, sport-tuned suspension, an upgraded six-speaker sound system with iPod and USB inputs, steering-wheel audio controls, power accessories, keyless entry, 16-inch alloy wheels, and fog lamps. The SE also includes cruise control, but for 2011 Hyundai has deleted the formerly standard sunroof to keep the price down.

And for sedans and the upscale hatches, price and value isn't the lure it is either for the base hatch or for other small cars in this class. The GLS sedan includes many of those features, but with GLS and SE models reaching into the $15k and $16k range, they approach the base price of the far more advanced, fuel-efficient (and desirable, in just about every way) 2011 Hyundai Elantra.

A Bluetooth hands-free interface is also sorely lacking from the package.

Conclusion

The basic GL hatchback version of the 2011 Hyundai Accent is a steal, but the rest of the lineup doesn't have the strong value proposition—or feature set—that distinguishes Hyundai's other models.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
