The front-wheel-drive sedan is powered by a 138-bhp 4-cylinder engine offered with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. The six-speed transmissions, direct injection and low rolling resistance tires help the Accent achieve an EPA rating of 28/37 (City / Hwy). When configured with an optional package, the Accent includes alloy wheels, air conditioning, power windows, power locks, and keyless entry for around $17,000 which makes the Accent one of the best values on the market.
