Review: 2018 Hyundai Accent GLS Sedan – Part 1

When I first picked up the 2018 Hyundai Accent GLS my first thought was that they took a Sonata or Genesis G80 and shrunk it. It certainly looks like either of those two vehicles depending on what angle you look at the Accent from. And that’s a good thing as both those vehicles are lookers. Which makes the Accent that I have this week a looker as well.

This Accent doesn’t look like your typical sub-compact car. It looks like something far further up the food chain with a bigger presence than your average sub-compact car. I guarantee that this will turn heads when you roll up in it. Which is what it did at the world premier of the Accent last year. Adding to the upscale and classy feel of the Accent are two items:


In the GLS trim level, you get LED turn signals on the mirrors as well as…..


…. 16″ Alloy wheels. And if you look carefully, you’ll see disc brakes. Seeing as I am taking a picture of the rear wheel, that came as a bit of a surprise as that’s something that you don’t typically see on a sub-compact car.

My review of the 2018 Hyundai Accent GLS is made up of five parts:

  • Exterior
  • Engine, transmission, handling, fuel economy, and driving comfort
  • Interior
  • Technology in the vehicle
  • Wrap up

The next part of this review will cover the engine, transmission and driving comfort. All of which are far above what you would expect from a sub-compact vehicle. Tune in tomorrow to see what I mean.
