The 2018 Hyundai Accent extends the model’s reputation for efficiency and reliability while offering more contemporary features to satisfy modern drivers with the safety and convenience that they deserve.
More spacious interior with updated perks
The new Accent is roomier than last year’s model, providing an overall passenger volume of 103.9 cubic feet. Due to this increased space, the EPA has classified it as a compact rather than a subcompact car. Besides expanding the internal dimensions, Hyundai has also added the latest technology. The advanced infotainment system with seven-inch display touchscreen and rearview camera combo is a fresh feature for 2018. Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ provide even more ways for passengers to stay engaged during long drives.
A quiet strength
Step behind the wheel of the 2018 Hyundai Accent to experience a serene interior and sensation of safety that comes from a sturdy exterior shell. For the new model year, this compact delivers a revamped chassis so passengers can enjoy a quieter cabin for a more pleasant drive. It’s surprisingly rigid for a lightweight vehicle, due to its 54.5 percent composition of Advanced High Strength Steel.
Safer than ever
The new Accent has the latest driver assist features to help you and your passengers stay protected on the road. For starters, Hyundai has incorporated a rearview camera with dynamic guidelines to make it easy to back up out of a parking space. The optional Forward Collision-avoidance Assist (FCA) uses radar to sense potential collisions in front of the vehicle and warn the driver; it also activates emergency braking, in the case that the driver doesn’t respond to the threat quickly enough to avoid it.
The 2018 Hyundai Accent continues the model’s reputation for peak efficiency with capable energy. It boasts a 1.6-liter Gamma four-cylinder Gasoline Direct Injected (GDI) engine which outputs 130 horsepower and 119 lb-ft of torque, which should satisfy those seeking practical performance. Efficiency is where this compact really shines, however. Per the manufacturer’s website, the new Accent achieves an EPA-estimated 28 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway, which makes it a perfect vehicle for commuters.*
