Excellent

Amazingly cheap for what you get.

Electric window switches in middle of car.

I bought my Hyundai Accent MVi in October 1998. It was the lovely "vivid yellow" colour which drew me to the car - which was extremely different until the Micra, Punto and Megane all came out in yellow! The spoiler on the back with built-in brake-light not only looks excellent, but is a great...

Newer models are more comfortable and reliable

Still not as comfortable as any of the French cars

UPDATE: Since I first wrote this review, my husband got a third Accent (2000) from work and I started to warm up to these cars. When my old Peugeot finally died on me, I went looking to replace it and lo and behold, what did I buy but a 2002 Hyundai Accent. Yes, over time, Hyundai has improved...

“Cheap cheap cheap”

cheap design

I currently own a Hyundai Coupe 1.6 (see the review on the Ciao site). My car recently went in for a service so I had the misfortune of a Hyundai Accent MVi as a courtesy car. While my Coupe isn’t the most luxurious and awe-inspiring car on the road, the Accent MVi really left my feeling like I...

“More then worth it”

published 24/02/2003

Affordable, Reliable, Gas Saver

Low Power, Small Tires(bummpy ride)

Well, I don't own a new Hyundai Accent, but I own a 1997 Hyundai Accent, and I'm sure they only get better from there. I bought my car used, with 60k miles. I've had it for about 12k miles. I have enjoyed my time with this affordable vehicle. I first purchased the vehicle for its looks, cost, and...

“What a great first car!”

Cheap, fast 0-60, low maintenance, IG 5

interior looks

I bought this car about a year ago it has just had its first MOT with me and had no repair work required. Mine is 5 years old now and has full service history. Really great looking car, goes very quickly (0-60 in 10s) especially good on space and fun to drive compared with a corsa or other...

i think it was the look of this car which posessed me to buy it, it was very impressive, had a big spoiler, 16 inch hyundai coupe wheels, stainless steel exhaust, side skirts, large bonnet vent, looked like a subaru impreza... However you get what you pay for, mine was £950, the barrels in the...

“Vroom!!!!!”

published 18/08/2000

Looks good, Alloy Wheels

No ABS

My last three cars have been accents, two of them have been the MVI. It may be only a 1.5 l engine but it goes like it has a 2 litre. Hyundai have sorted thier engines so they tick over like a dream. It comes in a wide variety of colours and the MVI comes with alloy wheels as standard. One of the...

“My views on the Accent”

published 11/07/2000

It's Small

None that I can think of

I bought this car in May 2000. I bought it because of its cost, petrol consumption, size and features. At an average of 33 mpg it is an around town car. The power steering is excellent for parking and with driver's air bag I feel safer when driving. Has a brilliant stereo with a generous 18 pre...

“In the minority I Love it”

published 17/04/2003

cheap, fuel efficient, great for cities

uncomfortable on long drives

I have had my Excel (Accent equivalent) for quite a few years now and absolutely love it! Yes its cheap, does not have the same extras and comforts as the luxury cars, but the price reflects this! This is a nippy, fun car (if you have the sports options), great for around towns! A 1.5 fuel...
