The Alternator Management System monitors and manages electric power delivery from the engine to the battery while the vehicle is slowing down and idling. So the engine operates under less stressful loads for longer battery life.
All Accent models with automatic transmission have an Active ECO System that modifies engine and transmission control for improved fuel economy. Based on internal tests, this system provides up to a 7% improvement in real-world fuel economy.* That’s a big difference.p>
The Accent sedan has an exceptional coefficient of drag, at a mere 0.28, thanks in part to aerodynamic improvements in its design. These enhancements include a more aerodynamic body, shielded tire, and optimized engine undercover to help minimize resistance and deliver an EPA-estimated 38 MPG Highway.
The Accent features an eco-efficient 1.6-liter GDI engine that generates 137 horsepower and 123 lb.-ft. of torque. The Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT) helps improve torque and enhance fuel efficiency so you spend less time at the pump. This 4-cylinder can be coupled with a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC®.
When the sun goes down, the available projector headlights with LED accents and fog lights give you a better view of the road ahead and get noticed by those who appreciate thoughtful design and attention to detail.
When you first look at the Accent, you may find your eyes being drawn to the ground. And that’s okay. The Accent Sport Hatchback has standard 16-inch, alloy wheels with low rolling resistance silica tires. This combination provides great style, and optimizes fuel economy at the same time. These distinctive 16-inch wheels are also available on the SE Sedan.
The fluid styling of the Accent Hatchback extends all the way to the rear spoiler and its unique, aerodynamic design. So it doesn’t just add a sporty visual element—it helps you glide down the road more smoothly and efficiently.
Ease down the road with standard features that include glare-blocking sliding sunvisors, a one-touch triple turn signal and an available auto-up driver’s power window control. Plus, inside you’ll find overhead sunglass storage, front map pockets with bottle holders, a storage tray, dual front cupholder, a front glove compartment and available sliding armrest with storage.
Whether you’re behind the wheel, you’re a backseat driver, or lucky enough to be riding shotgun, the spacious interior of the Accent offers comfort and refinement that’s unique to its class. In fact, the EPA classifies the Accent Sedan as a compact rather than a subcompact.
In the Accent, there’s never nothing on. With SiriusXM Satellite Radio and your free 3-month trial, you get just about every type of music you want to hear plus sports, news, talk radio and entertainment.
Expect more from your steering wheel. Change the station, turn up the volume, or engage cruise control without ever taking your hands off the wheel. With this available feature, you can enjoy steering-wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls that put the power right at your fingertips.
Designed to help prevent loss of traction, the Traction Control System (TCS) detects wheel slip and applies the brakes as needed, then transfers power to the wheels that are stable. It’s the type of control you can expect from the Accent.
You can control your ride with confidence knowing you have Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD). This dynamic system balances braking forces at each wheel to help you maintain control during sudden braking. So you can brake with poise and composure each and every time.
The comprehensive Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system on the Accent links and optimizes the function of active safety features, incorporating Motor-Driven Power Steering (MDPS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Traction Control System (TCS). It’s all the stability features you want, controlled by one very impressive management system.
Here’s one set of features we hope you’ll never see: The airbags. But it’s comforting to know they’re there. All six of them. The Accent is equipped with front, front side-impact and side-curtain airbags to help protect you if the unavoidable occurs.
