Newly Added Features for the Year 2021

Though there is not much of change done to the Hyundai Accent model series for its 2021 edition, the discontinuation of few exterior colors, there is some more functionality added to the interior. The Hyundai Accent has always been a handsome looking car, that got more refined with the timely refreshments over the years. But for the 2021 model year edition, it is all the same otherwise that we have seen in the last year lineup.

What Spices Up the Performance

Hyundai has powered its flagship model 2021 Accent with all the necessary performance tweaks, though they were present even for the last year lineup. The standard powertrain configures the 2021 Hyundai Accent with front wheels that works in line with an inline-4 engine that ships all its output through either a smooth shifting 6-speed manual gearbox or through a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).

But to get the CVT, you have to pay a bit extra since it is an expert in pitching the buzzy engine through tough road surfaces. Acceleration with this powertrain stays meager, though that does not affect the smooth ride quality, which is an outcome of a short-wheelbase car that rides on pairs of 17-inch wheels.


The 2021 model year edition of Hyundai Accent can carry four adult passengers while leaving 13.7 cubic feet of space for the stuff to be stored in the trunk. The seats are supportive enough but could have felt better if Hyundai could apply some more bolstering. There are some extra hidden spaces allotted for storing small-size items like phones and iced coffees which is a treasure to be found in pint-sized cars like the 2021 Hyundai Accent.

Safety side includes emergency braking, cruise control, a handful of power features, and a skimpy 5.0-inch touchscreen display working for the infotainment system, that can be upgraded into a bigger 7.0-inch touchscreen that provides with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

As learned from the Hyundai Vallejo dealership people, at the top end of the lineup range, the Limited trim models of the 2021 Hyundai Accent series, comes a host of standard convenience features like LED headlights and 17-inch wheels on the exterior, heated seats and a 7.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility for the infotainment system.
