Given that the two least expensive cars are hatchbacks, it's not surprising that the Hyundai Accent is the third least expensive car. 

It comes as no surprise that the 2021 Hyundai Accent has low U.S. operating costs. It was deemed

is understandable considering that it gets close to 40 mpg when driven on the interstate.
