The accent is a compact sedan in Hyundai’s lineup also available as a hatchback. Starting at slightly over $14,000 the Accent is an incredibly economic choice at that sticker price. However, you should also take a look at the associated Hyundai Accent insurance costs of owning a car before you purchase it. An attractive sticker price might translate to instant savings, but doesn’t always mean that insurance costs will be low. However, the Accent, fortunately is one of the less expensive cars to insure. Read on, and we’ll show you how to save on your car insurance.
On average, Accent owners paid around $850 annually to insure their cars. Though bear in mind that rates vary from person to person and insurer to insurer. There are many factors that go into the calculation of an insurance premium. For example, if you have a clean driving history, your insurance rates will decrease. If you lower the amount of miles you drive annually, you will also see a decrease. Both of these factors mark you as lower risk; the lower risk you are to an insurer, the lower your premium.
Another great way to save is to shop around. Different companies will offer different incentives and discounts, so don’t just get one quote.
The Hyundai Accent comes equipped with a 1.6 liter 4 cylinder engine giving it an impressive 30/40 miles per gallon rating. This is a top choice for drivers seeking a basic car to get you from point A to point B while saving you money at the pump. The 2012 Accent has been redesigned similarly to the Elantra and Sonata giving it a bit more personality.
It comes in three trim levels: the GLS, the GS and SE, though the sedan version is only available in the base GLS trim level. All trims come standard with power lock doors, trip computer and basic radio. You can opt for a comfort package, which includes amenities normally standard in other cars of its class like: air conditioning, power windows and mirrors, and a CD player addition to the radio.
The GS hatchback offers what the GLS does with the addition of keyless entry, rear window wipers, and drivers armrest. The SE adds a rear spoiler, fog lights, and equipment from the premium package.
Safety features can also help you save on car insurance. The 2012 Accent has six airbags, anti-lock brakes, stability control and brake assist standard on all models. It has also tested well, for the most part, with the IIHS. It has received a score of “good” for its front, rear, and roof integrity crash tests, but only received an “acceptable” for side impact tests.
