2012 Hyundai Accent Review

At last the all-new 2012 Accent shatters convention with the fluid lines and chiseled curves once reserved for cars costing much more. The eco-efficient 1.6L GDI D-CVVT 4-cylinder engine commanding the all-new Accent offers best-in-class standard fuel efficiency and best-in-class horsepower making this vehicle easy on the wallet and easy to drive. All Accent models with automatic transmission have an Active Eco System that modifies engine and transmission control for improved fuel economy. Space can be deceptive especially in a car this size. But luckily for you the Accent delivers it big with best-in-class front and rear shoulder room. The Accent 5-Door also received best-in-class cargo volume. The optional Premium Package enjoy steering-wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls that put the power right at your fingertips. With optional XM Satellite Radio you get just about every type of music you want to hear plus sports news talk radio and entertainment. Every Accent is equipped with a set of standard safety features that offer an exceptional level of protection for you and your passengers. Providing a greater degree of safety than you would ever expect to find in a car of this class. The New 2012 Hyundai Accent Easy to own Easy on the eyes.
