We at Eide Hyundai pride ourselves on being able to match drivers with the best car to meet their needs and preferences. When people come in asking us about sedans, we like to point them in the direction of Hyundai’s newest Accent model. Stylish, affordable, and capable of doing everything you need and more, it is one of our most popular sedan choices.
2018 marks the fifth generation of the Accent and with this iteration, Hyundai’s popular sedan has undergone a bit of a redesign. The 2018 model’s appearance is more similar to that of Hyundai’s larger sedans, with a clean silhouette that does not detract from the Accent’s signature style. If you find yourself liking the look of the new redesign but wish it was available in hatchback, you are in luck - later on in 2018, the Accent hatchback will make its debut. You can personalize this car to perfectly match your personality by choosing from up to nine different exterior paint colors and three different wheel styles.
Other vital components of this car have undergone some significant changes too, including a brand new chassis which gives the car a wider stance that it had in previous years and a wheelbase extension of 0.4 inches. These modifications give the Accent more cargo capacity and passenger space, making it ideal for Grand Forks drivers who want something with a little more room. The trunk itself provides you with an impressive 387 liters (L) of storage area and if you need even more room, the rear seats fold down flat in a 60/40 split.
Some additional significant changes include an updated interior, paired with new technology. A 5.0 inch LCD touchscreen media display in the center console gives you access to Bluetooth connectivity, as well as the available Android Auto and Apple Play features. The touchscreen also functions as the backup camera, which is now standard in the Accent. Updated automatic climate control technology ensures that you and your passengers will always be riding in comfort regardless of what the weather is like outside. With the smart trunk feature, you can open the trunk merely by standing close to it for three seconds - the sensors will activate and the trunk will open without you having to do a thing.
Safety is something Hyundai has always taken seriously, and to that end the new Accent boasts top of the line safety features. One such feature that is new in the 2018 Accent is Autonomous Emergency Braking, which works by warning the driver if there is a possibility of a collision. If the driver does not immediately respond, this system automatically applies the brakes. Additional safety features include a lane departure alert system, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and lane change assist. Rounding out the new Accent’s safety tech is a six airbag system, which provides one airbag each for driver and passenger, two curtain airbags, and two side-curtain airbags.
This sedan is more than capable of holding its own against others in its class in regards to output, with the gas engines being capable of delivering around 132 horsepower (hp) and 119 pound-feet (lb-ft) of torque. It is also economically efficient, delivering around 40 mpg (miles per gallon) when driving Grand Forks ND’s highways and 30 mpg while driving in the city. The new Accent is available with both standard and automatic six speed transmissions.
Hyundai has raised the bar with its redesign of the Accent. Compact but not cramped, outfitted with the best in safety features and user-friendly technology, this is a car that we are always excited to show our customers when they are looking for a efficient, affordable sedan.
