The Accent's driving position is reasonably good and the higher spec models have driver's seat height adjust. All Accents have a steering wheel that moves for rake, but not reach. The major controls, basic as they are, are clear and easy to read, although the stereo is fiddly to use on the move.
Hyundai Accent Hatchback space & practicality
The Accent comes either as a four-door saloon or a five-door hatch, with 60/40 split rear seats on both models. The cargo area is reasonably sized and well shaped. Front passengers have decent head- and legroom, but the rear is tight for adults' knees and three grown ups will find it cramped, so it's probably best kept for the kids.
Hyundai Accent Hatchback equipment
Equipment is acceptable throughout the range, but the CDX adds touches including a leather-clad gearknob and a trip computer and air-con. All models have alloy wheels, electric windows front and rear and a CD. No sunroof is offered even as an optional extra. An automatic gearbox is available for the 1.6-litre CDX.
