2001 Hyundai Accent Review
More than an accent, it's almost a new language.
Hyundai Accent does not behave like the bottom-dollar economy car that its low price tag implies. It's much better than that, with sophisticated mechanical equipment and comfortable amenities.
To demonstrate its confidence in the new Accent, Hyundai supports it with a warranty that goes well beyond the competition. Accent's powertrain is insured for 100,000 miles, and a 60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty shields against other defects. There's even five years of roadside assistance with lockout and emergency towing service. The warranty alone should put Accent on anyone's shopping list. Add in strong performance and nimble handling, and competitive pricing makes Accent an impressive value.
