Reviewers feel the 2008 Hyundai Accent offers a meager selection of standard features, but the list of add-ons is long.

Kelley Blue Book lists the "modest GS standard-equipment" as "power steering, tilt steering column, eight-way manually-adjustable driver's seat, 60/40-split rear seat, cabin air filtration, tachometer, variable intermittent wipers and a rear spoiler."

For a little extra cash, the base Hyundai Accent 2008 can be customized with numerous audio, styling, or performance-oriented accessories.

In the SE Accent, Hyundai includes "16-inch alloy wheels, a sport-tuned suspension, foglamps, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter and a rear center armrest with cupholders," Edmunds says. For the top-of-the-line GLS model, Edmunds adds "air-conditioning and a CD/MP3 audio system with satellite radio."

Kelley Blue Book stresses that these are "mostly sports-oriented." ConsumerGuide notes that the "Popular Equipment Pkg." includes "Antilock 4-wheel disc brakes, power mirrors, power windows, power door locks, remote keyless entry, (and) alarm." A power sunroof and a ground effects kit are also available.

Most features are optional on the Accent. But outfitted with fog lights, a CD player, XM Satellite Radio, and tire pressure monitors, a 2008 Hyundai Accent SE stickers for about $14,000.
