Complete with a new grille and a number of other updates, the 2015 Hyundai Accent starts at $15,555 including an $810 destination fee.
The base 2015 Accent GLS sedan is priced just $100 above the 2014 model. For that money, the model receives a new grille, headlights and taillights as well as a new standard exterior temperature display. Buyers can choose three new exterior colors, including Vitamin C, Pacific Blue, and Misty Beige as well as a variety of new interior fabric patterns. Accents also receive a new reversed LCD display that Hyundai says is easier to read.
Opting for a six-speed automatic instead of the standard six-speed manual brings the price up $1000 on the base model. Buyers selecting this trim can also choose a Popular Equipment Package which adds steering wheel audio controls, cruise control, Bluetooth hands-free phone, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and a sliding armrest storage box in one package. This bundle costs $600 for GLS models with an automatic transmission.
Those who want the base Accent in a hatchback version can opt for the GS model, which starts at $15,805 when paired with a manual and $17,005 with an automatic transmission. For 2015, the Accent SE hatch becomes the Accent Sport, and this trim receives larger 16-inch alloy wheels. This top-of-the-line model — which also includes firmer steering and a roof-mounted spoiler — starts at $17,305 with a manual transmission or $18,305 with an automatic.
All Hyundai Accents are equipped with an aluminum 1.6-liter Gamma four-cylinder engine that delivers 137 hp and 123 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy is EPA-rated at 27/38 mpg city/highway.
