2001 Hyundai Accent 3.5 10
$ -
May 3, 2001
Vehicle Overview
Hyundai’s smallest, least-expensive model was redesigned for 2000, and this year the GS and GL models get a larger engine — a 1.6-liter four-cylinder instead of a 1.5-liter. The front-drive Accent returns in two-door hatchback and four-door sedan styling.

Hyundai owns automaker Kia, which make up Korea’s largest and second-largest auto manufacturers, respectively. DaimlerChrysler recently bought a 10 percent stake in Hyundai, and the two companies will work with Japanese manufacturer Mitsubishi to develop a new line of small cars for worldwide sale.

Both body styles have a 96-inch wheelbase and an overall length of 167 inches, making them about 8 inches shorter than a Ford Focus Sedan or Honda Civic.

Hyundai says the Accent seats five with its two front buckets and a rear bench seat, but limited legroom and a narrow interior make four people the practical limit. Cargo volume is 10.7 cubic feet on the sedan and 16 cubic feet on the hatchback, and both have a folding rear seatback that expands cargo capacity.

Standard equipment includes power steering, a cassette player and rear window defroster.

Under the Hood
A 1.5-liter four-cylinder with 92 horsepower returns as the engine for the base models. The GS and GL models now get a 1.6-liter four-cylinder that generates 105 hp. Both engines come with a standard five-speed manual or optional four-speed automatic transmission.
