Adding crowd favorites like Apple CarPlay and autonomous emergency braking gives the subcompact segment a bit of excitement.
It's hard to find a subcompact car that's adventurous.
The 2018 Accent isn't one of those cars. It plays it safe, which benefits the consumer.
The exterior updates bring the Accent's looks in line with the new Elantra.
The Accent gets its hustle from a 1.6-liter I4, good for 132 horsepower and 119 pound-feet of torque.
The I4 mates to the buyer's choice of a six-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission.
Autonomous emergency braking is available on the Accent, a rare addition in this segment.
Opt for the 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and you'll get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The interior keeps the design simple, with a splash of color and a lack of crazy contouring on the panels.
Heated front seats are available, too.
The Hyundai Accent should start rolling into dealerships in the third quarter of 2017.
