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."

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.


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

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.
