Vehicle Overview

Making its debut in 1994, the Hyundai Accent bears the distinction of being one of the longest-running subcompact nameplates in the North American market. For the 2017 model year, Hyundai introduced a Value Edition sedan trim that combines the best attributes of the SE Sedan (placed below it) and the SE Hatchback and Sport Hatchback (placed above it). Otherwise, the Accent is virtually unchanged from the previous model year, as it continues with its fourth production cycle.

For seven consecutive years, the Accent has used an exterior design that includes sharper and curvier lines than the previous-generation model, with a chrome-accented grille at the front. Projector beam headlights are joined by LED accents and automatic control on the Sport Hatchback, as well as a pair of fog lights beneath them for more penetrating illumination. The side mirrors have power adjustability and can fold (manually). On the Sport, Hyundai enhances them with turn-signal indicators and heating capability. At the back, Hyundai adds a one-speed rear windshield wiper if you go with an Accent hatchback. To accentuate its sporty orientation, the Sport Hatchback has the addition of a spoiler. The Value Edition joins the Sport in possessing 16-inch alloy wheels, while the SE (both the sedan and hatchback) has 14-inch steel ones.

Mechanical / Powertrain - Accent Information

Powering the 2017 Accent is the 1.6-liter Gamma, a gasoline-direct-ignition 4-cylinder engine that produces 137 horsepower at 6,300 RPM and 123 lb-ft of torque at 4,850 RPM. The SE trim level has its engine hitched to a 6-speed manual transmission. The Value Edition and Sport get a 6-speed automatic transmission, which comes with SHIFTRONIC mode to enable you to manually shift gears, as well as an Active ECO system to boost fuel economy. For a smooth ride, Hyundai installs a MacPherson strut suspension at the front and a torsion axle suspension with coil springs and monotube shock absorbers at the back. The motor-driven power steering (MDPS) system on the new Accent not only ensures precise cornering, but also saves energy by getting its power from an independent motor rather than from the engine. At the base level, the braking system consists of front discs and rear drums; on the Value Edition and Sport trims, Hyundai replaces the drums with discs to shorten stopping distances. Regardless of the braking system set-up, the Accent has ABS: an anti-lock braking system that prevents the wheels from locking up when the brakes are applied.
