2012 Hyundai Accent – Beginning at $12,545, is the best value in the B-Segment ranks with C-Segment sizing, far beyond its class content and appointments, and a 30/40 mpgUS city/highway rating that is so far below its actual capability it will surely please its owners every time they drive by the pump. All the while others are filling their behemoths at $100 + a pop and screaming “It’s the Governments fault.”
CleanMPG Reviews the 2012 Hyundai Accent – Hyundai’s most fuel efficient automobile we have driven to date.
