Car Profiles - Hyundai Accent Hatchback

HYUNDAI ACCENT HATCHBACK

While other contemporaries are content on fitting in gasoline powerplants, Hyundai seemed to have its own opportunity by being the opposite. Having lots of power under the hood which returns very high fuel savings wrapped in a practical body is one offer that we wouldn't pass.

The Good: Very fuel efficient, torque galore, classy styling.
The Bad: Limited rear visibility, huge price premium against the sedan brother.

Price Range: P798,000-P898,000
