2005 Hyundai Accent Overview

It's plain, it's basic, it's cheap, it doesn't come with a whole lot of fancy extras -- kind of like high school cafeteria food. But the 2005 Hyundai Accent makes a great first car, thanks to 29/33 mpg, an affordable price tag, and reliable 4-star crash ratings. For 2005, the Accent picks up optional ABS brakes, a nice bonus to the already standard dual front-side airbags, often overlooked in compact economy cars.

As the entry-level offering, the 2005 Accent comes in either a GLS sedan or GT and GLS hatchback. Both have split-folding rear seats, but the hatch offers more cargo room. The GT is meant to be the sportier version, with a sports suspension, alloy wheels, and a rear spoiler. Taking its compactness seriously, the 2005 Hyundai Accent is eight inches shorter than the Civic, but this means it is that much more maneuverable and parking space-friendly. It is powered by a 1.6-liter, 104-hp I4 with choice of standard 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic. Features are minimal, and even air conditioning comes only as an option, along with power features. You do get a cassette player, however, for those of us that still own cassettes.

The revamped styling from 2003 makes the 2005 Accent much easier on the eyes than your standard cafeteria fare, and it comes with a good powertrain warranty. Most owners praise its gas efficiency, dependability, and handling, though they admit there is some road noise and the backseat is not conducive to anyone with legs. Most drivers wish it came with a tilt steering wheel.
