Roadfly.com – 2012 Hyundai Accent

The all-new 2012 Hyundai Accent was revealed at the New York Auto Show.

Hyundai is aiming to make serious headway in a subcompact class that is increasingly crowded and competitive—the Honda Fit, Toyota Yaris, Nissan Versa, and the new Ford Fiesta and Mazda2 all play in the same sandbox.

Like the Versa and the Fiesta, the new Accent is offered as a 4-door sedan or a 5-door hatchback.

The only engine is a 1.6-liter inline-four with direct injection, which manages 138 horsepower and 123 lb.-ft. of torque, and can be paired with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic.

The sedan will be the cheaper of the two, starting at $12,445. The hatches will be considerably more, starting at around $14,600.

Written by Roadfly Charlie

Charlie is Roadfly’s founder and publisher, and was taught to drive by his father in a 1974 Porsche 914. That made poor Charlie a Porsche fanboy for life, and after driving a 911SC at 16, he bought and campaigned a variety of 944s at racetracks up and down the East Coast, earning awards and track records in his twenties. Charlie never really got over the car bug, and after a career in real estate development he founded the Internet media firm that became Roadfly. Charlie lives in McLean, VA with his wife and two daughters, and between the demands of family and business doesn’t have much time to play with cars anymore, excluding the machinery we review.
