Visually, the Accent isn't very remarkable. While the sedan model is quite short and stubby from the outside, the three-door hatchback is the clear winner from the exterior, with a more cohesive shape that looks more sophisticated from a distance.

Cars.com notes the "Accent's crisp modern lines, distinctive halogen headlights, and larger wheels and tires," while in comparison to other competing vehicles, MyRide.com calls the Hyundai Accent "more buttoned-down conservative than the more youthful Kia Rio." Kelley Blue Book says at one point that styling is "sporty and expressive," but 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.”

If it makes any difference, you'll probably give yourself away driving a base Blue versus, say, the pricier SE. "The base GS hatchback has black side mirrors and door handles; those parts are body-colored on the SE hatchback and GLS sedan," states Cars.com.

Few reviewers have anything to say about the interior styling of the 2010 Hyundai Accent, but TheCarConnection.com notes that the Accent is more appealing on the inside than from the outside, with Hyundai's expected oval themes and simple, straightforward controls and displays.

Conclusion

The 2010 Hyundai Accent is a little homely, yet inoffensive; style-minded buyers will probably like the hatchback a bit more.

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.
