2012 Hyundai Accent Overview
With the redesigned for 2012 Hyundai Accent, Hyundai has once again found a way to deliver more features and interesting styling to its lineup while keeping the price low. And this Accent represents one of the best values on the market today.
To be frank, subcompact cars have never really been known for being stylish, but the 2012 Accent wears its skin very well in both sedan and hatchback forms. When you compare the new Accent to the ones of previous years, the improvement becomes even more apparent. The Accent can also be outfitted with exterior options such as 16-inch wheels, fog lights, and a rear spoiler (for hatchback versions).
The powertrain is also brand new for 2012, a 138-horsepower, 1.6-liter four-cylinder that is mated to a six-speed manual or automatic. There is also an “Eco” button that sits on the dash which modifies throttle response and shifts to improve fuel economy.
Speaking of fuel economy, the Accent gets a dizzying 30 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway, numbers that put it at the top of its class.
Moving inside, the 2012 Accent, like most of the budget conscious cars in this segment does not have many standard features in an effort to keep the base price low. Much of what is available is optional, including air conditioning, power windows and locks, and even the stereo. The Accent can also be outfitted with USB/iPod and auxiliary audio inputs, remote keyless entry, and Bluetooth® connectivity.
The Accent doesn’t skimp at all however when it comes to safety, with four-wheel disc antilock brakes (most other cars have rear drums) and an electronic stability system standard. Also standard are front, side-impact, and side curtain airbags, as well as active front head restraints.
If you’re looking for a bargain at the showroom and at the pump, look no further than the 2012 Hyundai Accent, which helps you to save some green and look good doing it.
