2011 Hyundai Accent Performance

5.0
Performance
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.
