New Hyundai Accent 2011
Power With Efficiency
A 1.6L engine produces all the power you need, with excellent fuel economy and low emissions.
Fuel Efficiency / Aerodynamics
The all-new Accent has been designed and engineered to provide power with fuel efficiency. The lightweight Gamma 1.6L engine uses continuously variable valve timing (CVVT) to deliver the precise air-fuel mixture required to meet engine demands and minimise fuel consumption. This, coupled with an aerodynamic body that minimises the coefficient of drag, adds up to a remarkable performance.
“I test drove 5 other similar sized cars before I bought this one. I loved the way it looked inside and out. It’s a cute little, reliable car… Excellent warranty too, which was really important to me.” – DawnD.
Gamma 1.6 CVVT Petrol Engine
The all-new Accent’s Gamma 1.6 CVVT engine utilises an aluminium block, low friction moving parts and CVVT technology to deliver up to 91kW of power at 6,300rpm while producing 156Nm of torque at 4200rpm. Combined fuel consumption is a low 6.0L/100km (manual) and 6.4L/100km (automatic)*.

“Surprisingly roomy inside. Very easy to drive and park. Everything is sized and placed nicely for a 5′ 5″ woman. There is quite a bit of engine and road noise, but a small price to pay for an economical, fun little car.” – Wanda McVeigh.
Hyundai has engineered the all-new Accent’s transmissions so that they do not require servicing under normal driving conditions. The new ergonomic 5-speed Manual transmission includes a redesigned reverse gear selection for easier operation. The Automatic transmission (pictured) features HiVec (Hyundai intelligent Vehicle Electronic control), with overdrive and lock-up converter, that adapts to your driving style. It also offers a sports mode for more dynamic driving.
“I really like this car, I traded in my 2003 Ford Taurus that kept breaking down. Of course the ride is not as smooth as the bigger, heavier car but not bad for a small car. Actually it is quite large inside and small on the outside. I am 5′ 5″ tall, I drove across country and was totally comfortable. My taurus seats gave me a pain in the you know what. These seats are just the right shape and firmness for me… Air conditioner works better than my Taurus. This car fits me perfectly. Great for running to work and back every day.” – Fred.
Comfortable Ride & Agile Handling
To provide maximum ride comfort, the all-new Accent’s suspension and steering has been specifically tuned to meet Australia’s unique road conditions. The long wheelbase of the new Accent contributes to a smooth ride with enhanced stability. Comprehensive use of sealing and sound muffling materials ensures a quiet, refined drive.
“Heating and A/C system was excellent, so was illumunating and Radio/CD. Music system has a USB connection so that only thing you’re going to do is just insert USB stick and enjoy.” – cem.
