FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Nov. 21, 2017 – Hyundai Motor America has announced pricing for its all-new 2018 Accent, starting at $14,995 for the SE sedan model. New standard features on the SE trim level include a 5-inch color touchscreen audio system with rearview camera, Bluetooth® phone interface, steering wheel mounted audio / cruise controls, spare tire and 15-inch wheels. The all-new Accent includes all of this with only a small price increase of $250 compared with the 2017 SE model.

All 2018 Accents provide “class-above” interior space in a sophisticated design, along with advanced technologies delivering seamless connectivity and active safety driver assistance.  Accent’s driving experience is further enhanced through improved noise isolation and overall better driving dynamics to satisfy shoppers.

The all-new Accent also receives an updated powertrain tuned for even better fuel efficiency and drivability. The updated 1.6-liter Gamma four-cylinder Gasoline Direct Injected (GDI) engine produces 130 horsepower and 119 lb.-ft. of torque. Compared with the previous-generation Accent, the engine’s powerband has also improved, with increased low-end torque to make drivability easier.

A wide array of advanced safety technologies provides layers of protection for passengers. For example, Accent offers available Forward Collision-avoidance Assist that utilizes a front forward-facing radar to detect a vehicle and warn the driver of a potential collision. If the driver does not react to avoid the impact, the system will apply emergency braking.

Most 2018 Accent trims feature technologies ahead of the subcompact competition that enhance driver confidence and convenience.  The mid-level SEL trim has popular features such as a 7-inch Display Audio system with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, 15-inch alloy wheels and dual charging USB.  Finally, the Limited trim level includes Forward Collision-avoidance Assist, power sunroof, 17-inch alloy wheels and a proximity key with push button start among other key convenience features.
