Exterior and Performance

The four-cylinder engine in the 2018 Accent has a displacement of only 1.6 liters. Linked to gasoline direct injection (GDI), this I-4 engine produces up to 130 horsepower and just less than 120 pound-feet of torque. Every intake phase is initiated by the Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing. Standard in the SE trim, a manual transmission system with six speeds gives you the flexibility to customize handling. A six-speed automatic transmission system with the SHIFRTRONIC capability is optional in the base trim and standard in the other models. The Active Eco System optimizes efficiency by reducing resistance to gear changes in real time. Gas-pressurized shock absorbers support the front and rear chassis of this compact Hyundai. Coil springs are combined with a torsion axle in the rear wheels. A motor-driven power steering system generates good mechanical leverage for handling the Accent.

Interior and Technology

The 2018 Accent's driver seat may be adjusted to six different positions. Standard in the Limited edition, premium cloth covers the front seats that include heating elements. This trim also boasts an automatic climate control system with an automatic defogging system. All of the Accent models come with rear defrosters with timers for precise and efficient operation. Spacious enough for three adults, the rear seats in this compact Hyundai car have a 60/40 split-folding configuration.

A touch-screen interface makes it easy to explore the 2018 Accent's 7-inch display. Your favorite Android applications are ready to be used through the Android Auto portal. Whether you're looking for some help from Siri or other iOS apps, you could activate the Apple CarPlay hub that supports iPhones. Standard Bluetooth technology is integrated into the Accent's audio system, which comes with six total speakers. Dual USB ports may be used to charge mobile devices and other compatible electronics on the go. If you're looking for entertainment on the road, browse more than 120 music channels on SiriusXM Satellite Radio. Traditional AM and FM radio stations are also on the menu on the sound system.

The Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) is engineered to calibrate various mechanical parameters to keep the 2018 Accent stable in tough conditions. By manipulating the brakes and throttle, the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) reduces the risk of road departure. Inclement weather will probably prompt the Traction Control System (TCS) to take the appropriate action. The Accent Limited is equipped with the standard Forward Collision Avoidance Assist that comes with emergency braking and a warning system. When you want to change lanes, make sure to look at the Driver's Blind Spot Mirror. The Hillstart Assist Control (HAC) prevents this Hyundai from losing traction on a steep road. During a crash, the front and rear crumple zones will absorb forces that would otherwise penetrate the cabin. Dual-stage front and side air bags are also installed in the Accent. Featuring dynamic guidelines, the standard rear vision camera gives you an extra level of awareness for backing up.
