Both models are inoffensively styled on the inside, but now looking very dated. Hyundai expected oval themes inside still hit the mark, but they look (and are) five years or more behind the new look of the 2011 Hyundai Sonata and Elantra.
Visually, the Accent isn't very remarkable. And next to some of the newest, hippest subcompacts like the Ford Fiesta or Mazda2, it's downright homely. The Accent sedan model is quite short and stubby from the outside, though the three-door looks a bit more stylish and sophisticated—especially for those who like the Euro-hatch look.
