The 2013 Hyundai Accent comes in with impressive mpg

The 2013 Hyundai Accent lineup includes sedans, hatchbacks, automatics and sticks, but all of them achieve 40 mpg on the highway.

The Hyundai Accent sedan and hatchback are exceptional economy cars that offer great looks and outstanding value in a price-sensitive market.

Either transmission, automatic or stick, comes in at 30/40 mpg. Making it Hyundais third vehicle to hit the 40 mpg mark, joining the ranks of the Elantra Sedan and the Sonata Hybrid. When compared to other subcompacts and compacts in its sector, the Accent’s mpg easily stands out as impressive. The Ford Fiesta only manages 28/37 and the Honda Fit has 33 highway.

That leaves a pretty impressive driving range. Fill up the tank and the Accent could go as far as 450 miles without another stop. Wring it out, or leave in Sport, and you’re sure to land at the lower end of that scale however. The manual-transmission Accent has an “eco” shift light to help train you to use less fuel, though, while the automatic has an ActiveEco button that triggers early upshifts to improve gas mileage.

The Accent is powered by a 1.6-liter double overhead-cam engine that produces 138 horsepower and features variable valve timing. A six-speed manual transmission comes standard and a six-speed automatic transmission is optional. The Accent also received the rating of Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle.

The Accent receives several notable changes for the new 2013 lineup. The GS and GLS trims are now equipped with standard rear drum brakes. All trims gain standard power heater exterior mirrors. The GLS sedan now features standard air conditioning, remote keyless entry with panic button and a six-speaker audio system.
