Car Profiles - Hyundai Accent Sedan

HYUNDAI ACCENT SEDAN

An update done earlier in the year gave us sumptuous treats: a CVT transmission, a high end model, and the comeback of the diesel engine which makes fleets happy. While the line-up is expanded, some models aren't for everyone.

The Good: Comfortable ride
The Bad: Soft suspension

Price Range: P668,000-P848,000
Our Rating: ***
