model highlights

The 2020 Hyundai Accent is available in three trim levels: the SE, the SEL and the Limited. All Accents come with a brand-new 1.6L 4-cylinder engine that makes 120 horsepower. The engine is mated to a standard 6-speed manual or an optional 6-speed continuously variable transmission.

The SE rides on 15-inch wheels and comes well-equipped for the segment with a 6-way adjustable seat, power windows, mirrors and locks, a 5-inch touch screen and a 4-speaker CD and MP3 player with Bluetooth connectivity and USB auxiliary ports, air conditioning, rearview camera and a center armrest with cup holders.

Mid-level SEL models gain important features such as an upgraded 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with CarPlay/Android Auto and voice recognition, automatic headlights, alloy wheels, heated side mirrors and a steering wheel that tilts and telescopes.

The top of the line Accent Limited adds 17-inch wheels, heated front seats, fog lights, projector headlights with LED accents and LED taillights. The Limited also gets automatic temperature control with auto defogging, proximity key with push button start and a sunroof.

All 2020 trims come with standard safety features such as 4-wheel anti-lock brakes, advanced front and side impact airbags, side head and rear head airbags, hill start assist control, traction control, electronic stability control, vehicle stability management and tire pressure monitoring are also standard.

Driver's blind spot mirror is standard for SEL models while buyers wanting a forward-collision warning system with automatic braking will need to opt in the Limited trim level.

model news

The Hyundai Accent returns for 2020 with a new engine. It displaces the same 1.6 liters as the outgoing one, but gets considerably better fuel economy thanks to a host of new technology such as dual port injection and improved engine management. Paired with a new Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), mileage jumps to 33 mpg in the city and a very impressive 41 mpg on the highway.
