2000 Accent New Car Test Drive
Korea's largest automaker Hyundai concocts a bargain deal with its subcompact economy car, Accent, offering some of the lowest price points in the new car market.
With revamped models, Hyundai delivers a larger Accent for 2000 rigged with more interior room and more features plus refinements for its structure and powertrain.
Yet pricing for all versions has been confined to the level of last year's smaller Accent. And they're protected with the best warranty in the business. In effect, Hyundai found a way to build a far better car than the former Accent but market it for less bucks.
Accent comes in three-door hatchback and four-door sedan body styles. The same four-cylinder engine powers all models.
The base Accent L hatchback at $8,999 scores with one of the lowest prices on the market this year. The hatchback is also available as an up level GS version pegged at $9,599.
The sole sedan -- Accent GL -- starts at $9,699.
