The 2013 Hyundai Accent has a starting price of $14, 545 in the United States for the base entry-level version, which is actually 2,000 USD more expensive than the 2012 model year.
According to the South Korean based automaker, the 2,000 USD extra added to the starting price of the 2013 Hyundai Accent are being motivated by the presence of more standard equipment, like the CD player, audio system with satellite radio, USB port, air conditioning, heated side mirrors and remote keyless entry. Hyundai says that the 2012 Accent is now getting turn signals on the new side mirrors and the Accent SE is offering a sunroof as an option.
The Accent sales are 51 percent higher than a year ago as the company is saying but these might go down considering the fact that the refreshed model is more expensive than the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic (13,865 USD) and then the 2013 Ford Fiesta (13,200 USD), which represent the main competition of the Asian vehicle. In the base trim, the 2013 Hyundai Accent can return 40 mpg on the highway, according to the car manufacturer, which might be the one element which might “save” its sales.
