2017 Hyundai Accent Specs

  • The Accent's aerodynamic build and apt engine give it an effortless drive feel. Let's take a closer look at what's under the hood:An animated 137-horsepower 1.6L engine
  • A manual or automatic 6-speed transmission
  • Standard front-wheel drive

With these elements in play, the Hyundai Accent champions a smooth drive and a light footprint, returning up to an EPA-estimated 27 city/37 highway MPG. With a car like this, you can tally up weeks, and even months, of daily driving before you have to fill up again.

Choosing an Accent

Not a way to speak, but a car to drive! The 2017 Hyundai Accent is available in both sedan and hatchback formats, and there are two trims for each body style:

  • Sedan: Base SE and the new for 2017 Value Edition
  • Hatchback: SE and Sport

In the middle of the Hyundai Accent, you'll find a sound-sealed interior with plenty of space to get cozy. Since the Accent is a common commuter vehicle, many potential test drivers are eager to hear about its front seat space. The 2017 Accent offers:

  • 39.9 inches of front-seat headroom
  • 41.8 inches of front-seat legroom

As you can see, Hyundai generously proportioned the Accent's driver's and passenger's seat accommodations. You won't even feel like you're in a subcompact car!

Utility, Convenience & Audio

While the 2017 Hyundai Accent Sedan and Hatchback share nearly identical seating space throughout the vehicle, the Accent Hatchback offers an impressive total cargo space of 47.5 cubic feet, which is on par with some small SUVs.Both body styles come with a split-folding rear seatback to make divvying up your ratio of passengers to gear easy. The Hyundai Accent also comes standard with several comfort, convenience, and entertainment features that help simplify and enhance your daily commutes, including:

  • Keyless entry
  • 6-speaker audio system
  • Satellite radio
  • USB connection (access to music from other devices)

In this petite yet polished Hyundai, you have everything you need to enjoy the ride.
