2020 Accent Overview

  • EPA combined City/Hwy fuel economy improves by 4 MPG on most models

The 2020 Hyundai Accent has a new Smartstream G1.6 Dual Port Injection (DPI) engine and an Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT). These changes increase Accent’s EPA fuel economy to 33 mpg city, 41 highway, 36 combined, up considerably from the 28 city, 38 highway, 32 combined mpg rating with last year's 1.6-liter Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engine and 6-speed automatic transmission. 

SmartStream G1.6 DPI powertrain highlights

  • Dual Port Injection
    • Injection timing: Fuel injection at the intake stroke decreases wall wetting for improved fuel economy and reduced emissions
    • The amount of fuel injection is controlled by driving conditions
    • High compression is reduced at initial engine start
  • Thermal Management Module
    • Replaces traditional thermostat increasing cooling efficiency through temperature control of each port:
      • Radiator
      • Transmission fluid cooler
      • Heater
    • Mid-phase Continuously Variable Valve Timing
      • Reduces pumping loss and improves fuel efficiency
    • Narrow water jacket core
      • Improves thermal/cooling efficiency
    • High energy ignition coil
      • Improves fuel economy and combustion stability
    • External Exhaust Gas Recovery (EGR) system
      • Improves fuel economy and combustion stability


Engine Performance

The eco-efficient Smartstream G1.6 DPI 4-cylinder engine with Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT) engine is mated to a standard 6-speed manual or optional IVT transmission. These drivetrains produce an estimated 120 horsepower @ 6,300 rpm and 113 lb.-ft. @ 4,500 rpm.
