Are you now New York Auto Show is now very fast becoming a busy event with automakers left and right introducing their new 2012 model line up of vehicles. Examples Hyundai Koren automaker has unveiled new series of Hyundai Accent for 2012 models. The new 2012 Hyundai Accent that promises to take the popularity of its predecessors to a whole new level and also thanks in large part to the car’s new and upscale “Fluidic Sculpture” design, the new Accent sure looks like it doesn’t belong in the subcompact market anymore.
The all-new 2012 Hyundai Accent with best-in-class standard fuel economy and power at the 2011 New York International Auto Show. This marks the U.S. debut of the latest version of the popular subcompact sedan and the new top-of-the line, more functional Hyundai Accent five-door. “The 2012 Hyundai Accent reinvigorates the subcompact segment, similar to what the game-changing Sonata and Elantra have done in their categories,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president, Product and Corporate Planning, Hyundai Motor America. “Accent’s class-leading standard fuel economy is another showcase of Hyundai’s dedication to improving fuel efficiency with advancements to traditional gasoline powered vehicles and is the fourth nameplate in Hyundai’s lineup delivering 40 mpg on the highway.”
On top of the Accent’s new design, Hyundai made no bones about the car’s performance and capabilities, promoting the car as a class-leader across the board. The 2012 Hyundai Accent’s all-aluminum 1.6-liter Gamma four-cylinder engine utilizes the latest engine technology to deliver a class-leading 138 horsepower and 123 lb-ft of torque and a best-in-class standard 30 mpg city and 40 mpg highway fuel economy rating. The engine’s most notable feature is its use of GDI, a first for the subcompact category. By precisely controlling the injection of fuel, GDI allows for better fuel economy, increased power and reduced emissions. The application of Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT) on both intake and exhaust camshafts allows for increased efficiency, improved fuel economy and reduced emissions. Other elements resulting in reduced fuel consumption include an Alternator Management System, an offset crankshaft design, variable induction system and electronic throttle control.
The 2012 Accent has finally arrived to join Hyundai’s new sporting line. Featuring the same “Fluidic Sculpture” design that has made this generation’s line of Hyundai vehicles popular, the 2012 Accent’s overall is all loads of dynamic. The new Accent makes use of Hyundai’s signature hexagonal front grille and detailed swept-back headlights, giving it a compact athletic face to go along with the impressive powertrain. The Accent is available in a number of exterior colors, including Century White, Ironman Silver, Cyclone Gray, Ultra Black, Boston Red, Mocha Bronze, Marathon Blue, Clearwater Blue, and Electrolyte Green. These colors complement the gray or beige two-tone interior that the Accent comes in.
Hyundai doesn’t believe consumers should have to pay a premium for safety, so a long list of safety features is included as standard equipment on all 2012 Accent models. A total of six airbags protect occupants in the event of a collision, including two front impact airbags, two front seat-mounted side impact airbags, and curtain side-impact airbags for front and rear passengers. Pricing for the 2012 Accent begins with the GLS four-door fetching a sticker of $12,445 whereas the GS five-door comes in at $14,595.
