Tinley Park Area 2017 Hyundai Accent

Overview

The longest-running compact family car in the North American market, the Accent entered 2017 with a brand-new Value Edition trim, which is placed between the base-level SE and the top-level Sport. The SE is the only trim available as a four-door sedan and a five-door hatchback; the Value Edition sticks with the sedan bodystyle, while the Sport is only available as a hatchback. With no cosmetic or mechanical changes, the 2017 Hyundai Accent is notable for closing out the nameplate's third production cycle in the United States.

Interior

The 2017 Hyundai Accent is designed and marketed as a compact car that can seat up to five people. However, the hatchback bodystyle has more interior space than the sedan. At 90.1 cubic feet, the hatchback has 0.4 more cubic feet of passenger volume, and its 21.2 cubic feet of trunk space drawfs that of the sedan, which is measured at 13.7 cubic feet. Also, unlike the sedan, you can fold flat the rear seatback of the hatchback, thus expanding the cargo volume to 47.5 cubic feet; that's more than doubling the amount of space that the trunk yields. Front seating includes a 6-way manually adjustable driver's seat. In terms of upholstery and decor, Hyundai distinguishes the Sport from the other trims with upgraded cloth seat trim, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and piano black (instead of metal paint) interior accents. For entertainment, the new Accent comes with a six-speaker audio system with AM/FM radio, a single-disc CD player with MP3 playback capability, and SiriusXM satellite radio service. On the Value Edition and Sport, Hyundai adds steering wheel-mounted controls and Bluetooth connectivity.

Exterior

Standard exterior features of the 2017 Accent include 14-inch steel wheels, dual power manual-folding side mirrors, and a chrome-accented front grille. If you go with the hatchback variant, the Accent gets an additional one-speed wiper for the rear windshield. Both the Value Edition and the Sport ride on larger, 16-inch alloy wheels, instead of the 14-inch steel ones. The Sport trim in particular is enhanced greatly with front fog lights, a rear spoiler, turn-signal indicators and heating ability on the side mirrors, and projector headlights with LED accents and automatic control.

Mechanical

The 2017 Hyundai Accent has a suspension with a MacPherson strut design at the front and a torsion axle design at the back. Coil springs and gas absorbers are enforced on both ends for lessening overall turbulence. Motor-driven power steering (MDPS) is not only on board for sharping handling, but also increased efficiency, since it draws its power from an electric motor rather than the car's engine. Normally, the Accent has all-wheel drum brakes, but the Value Edition and the Sport replaces the ones at the rear with disc brakes for shortening stopping distances.

Powertrain

The new Accent is powered by a 1.6-liter inline 4-cylinder engine with 137 horsepower and 123 lb-ft of torque. On the SE, the engine is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission, which helps with achieving the car's peak fuel economy of 27/37 mpg. If you get the Value Edition or the Sport, you will get a 6-speed automatic transmission instead. It includes Shiftronic technology for enabling the option of manual gear shifting, as well as an Active ECO System for increasing fuel efficiency, which is estimated at 26/36 mpg.

Safety

The 2017 Accent comes with four airbags. Two of them function as front impact ones, and they face the driver and front passenger. The other two are installed on the front seats and function as side impact airbags. The Accent's Vehicle Stability Management system combines the aforementioned MDPS, electronic stability control for maintaining absolute control of the car, traction control to combat slippery road surfaces, and anti-lock braking for preventing wheels from locking up when applying the brakes. If you are driving the 2017 Accent with the 6-speed automatic transmission, hillstart assist control is included. That way, the car does not slide down a hill when you begin to drive from a parked position. A remote keyless entry system with a panic alarm serves as the Accent's security mechanism. If you go with the Sport trim, the Accent comes with a driver's blind spot mirror.
