The 2009 Hyundai Accent has regained the title of Cheapest New Car in America with a starting price of $9,970, thats around Rs. 5 lacs. The American Accent is essentially the Indian Hyundai Verna, whereas Hyundai continues to sell the old Hyundai Accent in India.

The $9,970 pricetag applies to the 2009 Accent GS 3-door with a manual transmission, which comes with a 110-hp 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine (Hyundai Verna Petrol), power steering, advanced front airbags, front seat-mounted side-impact airbags, roof-mounted curtain airbags, tire pressure monitoring system, front variable intermittent wipers, 60/40 split fold-down seatback, six-way adjustable driver seat, adjustable head restraints for all seating positions and rear spoiler.

However Hyundai needs to give its Indian vehicles a better warranty : –

All Hyundai vehicles sold in the U.S. are covered by The Hyundai Advantage, America’s Best Warranty. Hyundai buyers are protected by a 10-year/100,000-mile power train warranty, a 5-year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, a 7-year/unlimited-mile anti-perforation warranty and 5-year/unlimited-mile roadside assistance protection.
