Take a Hyundai Accent, Add Value, and You Get the 2017 Hyundai Accent Value Edition

Hyundai’s new Genesis luxury brand may be plowing new ground in the upper reaches of the market, but the Korean company has not forgotten about its budget roots. Case in point: the 2017 Hyundai Accent Value Edition, a new version of the subcompact Accent sedan with a nice load of features for the low, low price of just $ 17,285.

That’s only $ 705 more than the base-model Accent SE sedan with a six-speed automatic transmission (the Value Edition doesn’t offer a manual). The small extra outlay adds 16-inch aluminum wheels, Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control, rear disc brakes, steering-wheel audio controls, and an armrest storage box. Not bad for a sub-$ 18,000 new car, although it’s still missing a backup camera, which isn’t available on any Accent sedan or hatchback regardless of trim level.

If you’re a Luddite who doesn’t need those extra features, the more spartan Accent SE with a six-speed manual can be had for $ 15,580, while opting for the Accent SE hatchback adds $ 250 to that total. The Accent hatch also offers a Sport trim level, which has dropped its manual-transmission option for 2017 and now comes only with a six-speed automatic for $ 18,330.

Hyundai typically adds these sorts of Value Edition packaging deals when a car is reaching the end of its life. So if this new trim level isn’t quite the exciting Accent news you were waiting for, know that a redesigned model should appear within the next year or so.
