2021 Hyundai Accent for Sale in Fairfield, CT
Subcompact sedans are still the ideal car for some drivers, and the 2021 Hyundai Accent is one that offers plenty of bang for the buck. With its comfortable interior, stellar fuel efficiency, attractive styling, and low price, it’s just right for those who aren’t interested in the sea of SUVs and crossovers. Besides the aforementioned attributes, the ’21 Accent also has the industry’s best warranty coverage (5 years/60,000 miles bumper-to-bumper and 10 years/100,000 miles powertrain) and supplies 3 years/36,000 miles of complimentary, factory-scheduled maintenance, covering services like oil changes and tire rotations. So, while it goes up against some strong competition, the 2021 Hyundai Accent has several advantages over its rivals that help it stand out in the segment.
Trims and Powertrain
The 2021 Hyundai Accent is offered in three trim levels – the SE, SEL, and Limited – which all get a 120 horsepower 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. A six-speed manual transmission is standard on the base SE, but Hyundai’s more efficient Smartstream Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT) is available. The manual transmission is not offered in the SEL or Limited, as those trims are only made with the IVT. The ‘21 Accent is one of the most fuel efficient entrants in the subcompact sedan class. With the stickshift, it achieves an EPA-estimated 29 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway. The versions with the IVT return 33 city/41 highway.
Standard Features, Safety and Technology
The SE may be the base trim, but it comes with an above-average list of standard features. That list includes a rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, 15-inch steel wheels, power-adjustable side mirrors, a chrome grille, keyless entry, cloth seating surfaces and door-insert trim, a 60/40 split fold-down rear seatback, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, front and rear power windows, and smartphone USB and MP3 auxiliary input jacks. The SEL sweetens the deal with fog lights, automatic headlight control, 15-inch alloy wheels, heated side mirrors, a driver’s side blind-spot mirror, a passenger’s side seatback pocket, a driver’s side auto-up window, and dual USB charge ports. The Limited is the loaded version of the Accent, getting 17-inch wheels, a power tilt-and-slide sunroof, a hands-free smart trunk, side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, heated front seats, automatic climate control with an auto defog, Proximity Key with push-button ignition, and LED headlights, daytime running lights, and taillights.
The SE and SEL come with several passive safety features, like vehicle stability management, a traction control system, hill start assist (only with the IVT), and an assortment of airbags, but the Limited also receives a forward collision-avoidance assist system. Aside from safety tech, the ’21 Accent also has a nice assortment of multimedia features to keep its occupants entertained and connected. In the SE, this consists of Bluetooth hands-free smartphone connectivity and a four-speaker audio system. The SEL and Limited move up to an infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a six-speaker audio system.
