the five-speed manual transmission of the more softly sprung base Accent GS offers precision on par with a Huffy 10-speed
Car and Driver

All 2011 Hyundai Accent models remain powered by a 110-horsepower, 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, driving the front wheels. The Accent does just fine in city driving with either the five-speed manual or four-speed automatic, but in either case, at highway speeds, passing involves some careful calculation. However running costs are low, and the Accent has enough power for most commuting needs.

Though the Accent is quite softly sprung, it's one of the numbler-feeling small cars, thanks to a well-tuned suspension—which feels just a bit sportier in SE versions. Brakes feel better than what you might expect for a vehicle of this price, but other tactile elements aren't quite there; the manual shift linkage is imprecise, floppy sidewalls on base models hamper response at times, and downshifts can be loud and jarring with the automatic.

Conclusion

You might wish for a more power and performance, but the 2011 Hyundai Accent is good enough for most commuting needs.

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.
