The Hyundai Accent is one of the most affordable new cars on the US market, giving the Nissan Versa a run for its money. That appeal still stands for the 2018 model year, as Hyundai just announced pricing for the new Accent, which starts at just $14,995 before destination charges.

The 2018 Hyundai Accent debuted early this year, sporting a new facelift alongside the larger Sonata and finally ditching Hyundai's aging design philosophy. Despite its compact physique, the new Accent promises more interior space, better driving characteristics, less road noise, and more technology.

The base model SE gets a $250 price hike more than last year's but now comes standard with a BlueTooth interface, steering wheel audio/cruise controls, and a five-inch infotainment system with rearview camera. For $17,295, an Accent SEL presents a two-inch wider infotainment system with Android Auto/ Apple CarPlay smartphone integration and USB ports. The top-of-the-line, $18,895 Limited trim adds 17-inch wheels and Forward Collision-avoidance Assist, plus a few creature comforts like a power sunroof, push-button start, and keyless entry. 

If the Accent's MSRP isn't enough of a deal, you'll also save plenty of dough in gas thanks to the car's engine that makes up to 37 mpg.  Hyundai re-tuned the Accent's 1.6-liter GDI engine, optimizing it for better fuel economy, better throttle response, and more low-end torque.

It may not be the most technology-packed compact car, but the Hyundai Accent is a perfect car for those looking for a new sedan with just enough bells and whistles for a reasonable price.
