The Hyundai Accent keeps the pace going under the bonnet. And fuel consumption across the range is low, very low – from just 6.1 litres per 100km* – so even on fuel thirsty trips around town, the Accent makes the most of every drop. And did we mention, it’s fun to drive too.
*Accent 1.6 M6 model and refers to combined figures.
On the Elite model, a new high performance, low emission GDi petrol engine option delivers 103 kW of power and 167 Nm of torque for a more powerful ride. This model also boasts a 6-speed automatic transmission for better control through the gears and a smoother drive.
Hyundai has engineered the new Accent’s transmissions so that they make use of every drop of fuel. There’s the new 6-speed automatic transmission on the Elite model, and on entry models you have the choice of a 4-speed auto or a 6-speed manual. The two automatic transmissions feature HIVEC (Hyundai Intelligent Vehicle Electronic Control), with overdrive and lock-up converter, which adapt to your driving style.
The Accent suspension package has been specifically tuned for Australasian road conditions. Thousands of kilometres covered over a variety of road conditions have resulted in the perfect suspension setup for whatever the terrain might throw at you.
An innovative feature for a small car - speed sensitive, motor-driven power steering adjusts steering feel depending on the speed you’re traveling. More firm at higher speeds and softer at lower speeds, like when you’re doing a 3-point turn.
Look after the environment as you enjoy the drive. The Accent’s ECO indicator light will illuminate when you drive with higher fuel efficiency to remind you to take it easy (available on automatic models only).
