Hyundai Genesis luxury brand is focused on delivering the best performance and unparalleled comfort.
The primary objective of the sub-brand remains the same but the parent company is not giving up on affordable cars yet.
Designed to offer value buyers a chance to own a nice car with all the features one could ask for, the company has launched the 2017 Hyundai Accent Value Edition. As the name suggests, it is the same Accent that people are familiar with but there are some minor changes and value packages that makes it a true ‘value edition’ car. The Korean company shot to fame with budget models. It’s good to see that they aren’t forgetting their core customers even though a major share of the brand’s focus is now on building the luxurious Genesis brand.
A lot of features are packed into the new Accent which is priced at a surprisingly low cost of $17,285. The cost is just $705 more than the Accent SE sedan which happens to be the base model from the house of Hyundai. The car is equipped with a six speed automatic transmission and doesn’t have a manual setup. It is not something buyers could complain about as most would opt for automatic gearbox these days for its convenience and ease of use. The model uses 16-inch aluminum wheels, has cruise control, rear disc brakes and an armrest storage box.
The audio controls are mounted on the steering wheel making it easy for the driver to control them on the go. The car supports bluetooth connectivity technology. The features are plenty and considering the pricing, they add some great value to the buyer without being expensive add-on packages. The only drawback that we could find was the lack of a backup camera. The feature is not available on any sedan or hatchback at this particular trim level.
The cost of the 2017 Hyundai Accent value edition can go down even further if you feel you don’t need all these fancy features and would go with the basics. The Accent SE is priced at an even lower price for $15,580. The hatchback edition of the same costs about $250 more and is available with a Sport trim level. The 2017 edition however uses a six speed automatic transmission setup priced at $18,330.
Hyundai follows a tradition where they add value packages to each model when they are about to reach their end of life and requires a complete overhaul. For buyers who are good to go with the basics at affordable pricing, the 2017 Accent Value Edition is an easy pick.
