According to reviews read by TheCarConnection.com, editors applaud the 2009 Hyundai Accent's sporty look, but don't award it any blue ribbons. Automotive.com says it “looks more elegant than the previous-generation model did.” Cars.com agrees, noting that the "Accent's crisp modern lines, distinctive halogen headlights, and larger wheels and tires make this version more elegant than its predecessor."

In comparison to other competing vehicles, MyRide.com calls the 2009 Hyundai Accent "more buttoned-down conservative than the more youthful Kia Rio." While Kelley Blue Book concedes that with the 2009 Accent, Hyundai’s styling is "sporty and expressive," they ultimately conclude that the "sedan is pretty plain vanilla." Cars.com adds that “GS and SE hatchbacks sport a fairly typical wedge shape, but with telltale Hyundai curves.”

The interior of the 2009 Hyundai Accent “has a conservative two-tone interior color scheme reminiscent of larger cars, and it's trimmed out quite nicely, helping it avoid the feeling of an econobox,” Automotive.com says. “The dashboard wraps around to the door panels and the center stack is nicely integrated, with large, well positioned climate control knobs.” "Visibility is very good, with the short hood allowing a panoramic view of what's ahead," notes Edmunds about the openness of the design.

Conclusion

The 2009 Hyundai Accent can be considered an attractive car both inside and out, but it's a little homely as well.

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.
