Hyundai Accent Sedan 2017 Performance & Safety

SO FAR ON SO LITTLE

The 2017 Accent provides outstanding fuel economy while also offering a class-leading 137 horsepower. Choose between the 6-speed manual or available 6-speed SHIFTRONIC® automatic transmission and drive without compromising between power and efficiency.

And, while the performance of the 2017 Accent wins your heart, your mind can rest assured that the six standard airbags1 and front active head restraints, combined with the advanced technology of the Vehicle Stability Management, Electronic Stability Control, and Traction Control System2 make the 2017 Accent prepared when it comes to your safety.

1The Supplemental Restraint (Airbag) System (SRS) is designed to work with the three-point seatbelt system. The SRS deploys in certain frontal and/or side-impact conditions where significant injury is likely. The SRS is not a substitute for seatbelts, which should be worn at all times. Children under the age of 13 should be restrained securely in the rear seat. NEVER place a child seat in the front seat of a Hyundai vehicle.

2Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Traction Control System (TCS) are meant to enhance conscientious driving habits and are not a substitute for safe driving practices. ESC cannot control your vehicle’s stability under all driving situations. No system, no matter how advanced, can overcome physics or correct poor driving.
