Hyundai Touts Style, Safety, Performance for the Accent Sub-compact
Personal mobility has become a priority in these challenging times. Now that containment measures are gradually being withdrawn in the country, a new reality is starting to take shape. Social distancing is here to stay to ensure our safety and well-being.
Consumers are now looking to invest in personal mobility and require performance, safety, and sensible style. With the Hyundai Accent there is no need to compromise on any of these. You can have the best of all worlds in one great package. Truly, good things come in threes:
In terms of performance, the fifth generation Accent continues Hyundai’s legacy as a class-leading sedan with its available 1.6-liter CRDi diesel engine. Mated to either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission, the ACCENT effortlessly delivers capable power at 128 horsepower at 4,000 rpm, and torque at 259 Nm at 1,500-3,000 rpm.
In terms of fuel-efficiency, the 1.6-liter CRDi Accent variant can take you 29.4 kilometers on a single liter of diesel based on internal tests.
The Hyundai Accent features a more solid structure thanks to the built-in 50 percent Advanced High-Strength Steel (AHSS) proprietary to Hyundai’s automotive technology. This contributes to a shell that is more protective yet lightweight enough to improve the vehicle’s drivability and aerodynamics while on the move. It also meets the latest crash safety standards of USA’s National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration. The Accent also comes equipped with dual front airbags for a more reassuring ride.
From the outside, the Accent immediately clues you in on Hyundai’s uncompromising work to build this stunning sedan. Boasting of Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design, the Accent is a head-turner with well-defined lines and seamlessly sculpted contours that make for a sensuously sporty style.
Once you step inside, you are immediately welcomed by a more comfortable and roomier cabin, complete with ergonomic seats and a relaxing driver space where Motor Driven Power Steering, controls and vehicle information are conveniently positioned for easier operation.
