What's New for the 2018 Hyundai Accent?

Current changes to the 2018 Hyundai Accent have transformed it into a sleek and stylish sedan. Its hatchback version has been dropped from the US market. You get more space at 103.9 cubic feet of passenger volume, which comes from increases in width by 1.2 inches, length by 0.6 inches and wheelbase by 0.4 inches. These measurements push the car from the subcompact to the compact classification. In front, the grille now sports a larger new design that is surrounded by new fog light housings over a bold lower fascia. Body stiffness improves by 32 percent through the use of 54.5 percent high-strength steel, an increase of 13 percent.

2018 Hyundai Accent Trims and Features

With the S trim, you can conveniently control the AM/FM stations and the CD/MP3 player of the 4-speaker sound system using the color 5-inch touchscreen. Audio controls are also mounted on the steering wheel so you can focus on the road even when lowering the volume. You can tailor your driving position in up to six ways, including two for reclining, two for sliding and two for height. Music lovers will enjoy the six-speaker audio system in the SEL trim that hooks up to a compatible smartphone with support from Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto. Its 7-inch touchscreen accepts swipes and taps for listening to over 150 SiriusXM® channels. When you're starting on an incline, Hillstart Assist Control engages the brakes for a few seconds. You then have enough time to move your foot from brake pedal to accelerator without the sedan rolling downward. Get better visibility with the projector headlamps, LED Daytime Running Lights, and fog lights in this highest Limited trim level. As long as you have the Proximity Key with you, you can open the trunks or lock and unlock doors by pushing buttons on the key fob. Invite refreshing air and the summer sun to come in when you open the power sunroof that tilts and slides. Automatic Temperature Control with Auto Defogging monitors your environment constantly to keep you comfortable.

Power up the 1.6-liter 4-cylinder to deliver 130 horsepower at 6,300 RPM and 119 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,850 RPM, thanks to assistance from Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing and Direct Injection. You can stay out of fuel pump lines longer when you get an EPA-estimated 38 MPG on the highway and 28 MPG in the city* using front-wheel drive. Enhancing your road experience is the available 6-speed transmission, which gives you the thrills of manual gears through SHIFTRONIC®, or improved fuel economy through the Active ECO System. Even on the roughest road, you can count on the smooth ride delivered by MacPherson struts with gas shocks in front and torsion suspension with monotube shocks in the rear. Both suspension positions take advantage of coil springs.
