At first glance, the Hyundai Accent in this video looks just like any other hatchback. Like say, the Honda Jazz. But what sets this Korean model apart from its competition is what's under the hood. Unlike other hatches with four-pot gasoline engines, the Accent has a 1.6-liter CRDi mill. That's right, this little hatch is an oil-burner.

While it's been around for a few years now, the Accent hatch is still capable as an everyday car for trotting around the city. Aside from the traffic-friendly engine, the inside offers lots of room for passengers and cargo (370L for the latter). And while the amenities inside are minimal (or dare we say, slightly dated), there's still enough inside to keep you comfy and entertained during your daily drive.

So, what else is appealing about this oil-burner hatchback? To find out, click play on the link above then tell us your thoughts: Does the aging Accent still hold up?
