Six airbags1 provide all-round protection. One for the driver, one for the front-seat passenger, two curtain airbags running the length of the cabin, plus two side airbags.
1The Supplemental Restraint (Airbag) System (SRS) is designed to work with the 3-point seatbelt system. The SRS deploys in certain frontal and/or side impact conditions where signi¬ficant injury is likely. The SRS is not a substitute for seatbelts, which must still be worn at all times. Children under the age of 13 should be securely restrained in the rear seat. NEVER place a child seat
in the front seat of a Hyundai vehicle.
The Vehicle Stability Management system comprises of a network of safety features for the 2017 Accent. VSM monitors coordinate advanced safety systems like Electronic Stability Control and Traction Control System2 to make sure that they are all working in sync, maximizing their effectiveness.
2Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Traction Control System 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.
Standard on the 2017 Accent are front active head restraints. In the event of a rear-end collision, the restraints move forward before your head moves back, providing added protection against whiplash. Also, adjustable head restraints and 3-point seatbelts are standard for each seating position.
Standard 4-wheel disc brakes provide an extra level of confidence with a larger friction surface and better cooling capabilities than regular drum-style brakes.
