Since its conception, the Accent was designed to look and feel much more spacious on the inside than it looks from the outside. This space is much larger than the average subcompact and in fact, EPA (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency) classified it as a compact sedan.

I love how Hyundai, the quality and design of its vehicles have evolved in recent years, especially the Elantra, which I prefer over the Accent.There's no such thing as cheap and cheerful. It's cheap and nasty or expensive and cheerful. NYC Style!
