2016 Hyundai Accent Review

The 2016 Hyundai Accent was engineered to satisfy your driving demands. Perfectly. It blends lively performance and impressive fuel efficiency for a responsive driving experience. And that’s just the beginning. With plenty of room to go around the EPA even upgraded the Accent sedan to a larger compact sedan rating… and the hatchback offers best-in-class cargo room – with the seats up. Choose from 3 models starting at $14 745 for the SE Sedan the top of the line Sport Hatchback starts at $16 495. The Accent keeps you on the move thanks to 137 horsepower while its 38 miles per gallon highway means fewer stops at the pump. Available Active ECO features help improve fuel economy with the press of a button. The Motor Driven Power Steering gives you a sporty driving experience and a more responsive feel. The available SHIFTRONIC automatic transmission also has Hillstart Assist Control. Plus Accent comes with a host of standard safety features so you can travel with peace of mind. Multiple color and trim options will make your Accent even more unique. The 2016 Hyundai Accent… the category-defying subcompact.
Both the sedan and hatchback have class-defying space. Need even more? Fold down the 60-40 split rear seats. Convenient storage touches like map pockets and sunglass storage help you get the most of your extra cabin room. The Bluetooth hands-free phone system lets you keep your hands on the wheel and wheel-mounted controls make changing the station turning up the volume or engaging cruise control easy. Available SiriusXM Satellite Radio means you’ll always have the perfect soundtrack. And it’ll sound great on Accent’s 6-speaker audio system.
Stay safe where ever the road takes you. The Vehicle Stability Management system includes traction control and optimizes the function of active safety features. And you’ll stop easily with the Anti-lock Braking System with Brake Assist and Electronic Brake-force Distribution. Every Accent features 6 airbags to help protect you in a collision. Active front head restraints help prevent injury.
Fuel-efficiency is the name of the game and Accent is a winner at 38 miles per gallon on the highway. The eco-efficient 1.6-liter GDI engine still generates 137 horsepower. Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing improves torque and fuel-efficiency even more. Pick your pleasure and go with the standard 6-speed manual or the available 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC. Accents with automatic transmission have an Active ECO System for improved fuel economy. Never lose your grip. The Accent comes standard with advanced dynamic control features1 to help you maintain control.
