Hyundai received lots of complaints about Accent last year. Don’t get me wrong, everything was fine with its stability, durability and reliability, just the problem was that Hyundai hasn’t made any huge modification, and it may seem a little bit outdated. Finally, they lend an ear to the customers (and potential customers) and performed several modifications and improvements. The 2016 Hyundai Accent is coming better than before.
At the first sight you can notice that a front fascia has new lines and curves. If you look more closely, it is inevitable to see that the rear part has been changed as well. There are some rumors about new engine units and you will have a chance to read about them in the following paragraphs. Naturally, every car has its pros and cons thus we decided not just to present in all its glory, but also to take some flaws into consideration.
Hyundai Accent 2016 Engine
It is most likely that the new powertrain for the 2016 Hyundai Accent is going to be the 1.6l 4-cylinder. This engine is capable to develop exactly 138 HP and it comes with FWD. On other hand, there is one more engine option. Again we have the 1.6l 4-cylinder but with enhanced output. It can create slightly over 200 HP (201 exactly). This engine is mated to either 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic gearbox.
Perhaps the biggest advantage of new Hyundai Accent 2016 is fuel consumption. There are small differences between automatic and manual transmission, but generally it can reach 24 mpg in a city and 11 mpg more on highway. The average fuel consumption is 28 mpg for both manual and automatic gearbox. Standard features, such Anti-Lock braking system, are going to be improved comparing the previous models.
Interior and Exterior of Hyundai Accent
Generally, the 2016 Hyundai Accent doesn’t look aggressive but is more muscular than its predecessors. In order to decrease fuel consumption engineers worked on aerodynamics which has been improved (especially when it comes to Turbo model). Front part is quite different than before, while rear part has only minor modifications. LED technology has become standard in the car industry hence Hyundai used it a lot this time.
Steering wheel is leather-wrapped and there many useful buttons on it, such as buttons for audio control. Honda put a lot of effort in order to create a car which is comfortable for both kids and adults. Convenience has been brought to a higher level and leather is used all over the place. You won’t have any trouble with the new Accent if you decide to go on the long trips.
2016 Hyundai Accent Release Date and Price
According to the rumors the 2016 Hyundai Accent should enter the market these days. It is one of the most anticipated Japanese cars for these years and we are sure it won’t let us down. Accent has always had a great price and has been affordable for the majority of customers.
Price of this model is $16,000, which is slightly more expensive than before. For that money the Hyundai Accent 2016 is the best car you will be able to buy in the following few months.
