9. Hyundai Accent
EPA Mileage: 27/38 (CTY / HWY)
The Hyundai Accent stresses strong value and ample interior space, with predictable performance that doesn’t vary much from it’s competition. With a 1.6 liter 138 horsepower engine, the Hyundai Accent will get you where you need to go, just don’t expect to get there fast. The Accent accelerates, steers, and handles adequately, and the engine sips gas with a 27 mpg city / 38 mpg highway rating. The interior is nothing fancy, as to be expected with such an economically affordable car. The layout is simple and clean, with low gloss plastic and streamlined dash controls. The Hyundai Accent has a respectable amount of cargo space for a vehicle of its size, and even more if the seats are folded down.
