As Hyundai continues to receive acclaim from consumers and critics for such popular models as the Genesis, Equus, Sonata, and new Elantra, the automaker is looking to dominate the subcompact segment with its all-new 2012 Hyundai Accent. The new Accent has upped its game substantially. In equipment, style, and pricing, it poses the most serious and credible threat to its competitors to date.
Exciting changes abound for Hyundai’s new entry-level offering. The segment’s only direct-injected engine happens to be the most powerful, at 138 horsepower and 123 lb-ft of torque. That bests the next-most-powerful Fiesta by 18 horsepower and 11 lb-ft. The all-new Accent features an eco-efficient 1.6L Gamma GDI engine that generates a remarkable, class-leading 138 horsepower, a full 25% more power than its predecessor. In addition, the Accent still manages a segment-leading 30 mpg city and 40 mpg highway. The Accent’s fuel economy ratings apply across the board, regardless of body style, transmission, or trim level.
All Accent models with automatic transmission have an Active Eco System that modifies engine and transmission control for improved fuel economy. In fact, this system provides a 7% improvement in real-world fuel economy over vehicles without this feature.
Space can be deceptive, especially in a car this size. But luckily for consumers, 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 with even more cargo volume than the Infiniti EX35. The Accent 5-Door has a surprising 111.3 cubic feet, which is more than Ford Fiesta, Mazda2 and Toyota Yaris.
As far as styling is concerned, Hyundai didn’t cut any corners. The Fluidic Sculpture design theme that sets Hyundai apart extends to the all-new Accent, with its chiseled front fascia, bold rear bumper design and flowing lines that drivers wouldn’t expect to see on a car in this segment. The rear hatch on the Accent 5-Door adds great style and versatility to this well-designed vehicle.
