While many subcompact cars cut corners on design, we have instead refined them to the point of modern, fluid perfection. The Accent has available jewel-like projector headlights with LED accents, and available 16-inch alloy wheels add the perfect finishing touch.
The Accent Hatchback gives you the option to load up gear through the rear hatch with incredible ease. You'll never have to leave your snowboard or surfboard behind again.
The fluid styling of the Accent Hatchback extends all the way to the rear spoiler and its unique, aerodynamic design. So it doesn't just add a sporty visual element—it helps you glide down the road more smoothly and efficiently.
Don't let the "subcompact" title fool you. The Accent Hatchback has a longer wheelbase and overall length than the Toyota Yaris and Honda Fit.* That creates more room in the car for you to stretch out and kick back
When you first look at the Accent, you may find your eyes being drawn to the ground. And that's okay. The Accent Sport Hatchback has standard 16-inch alloy wheels with low rolling resistance silica tires. This combination provides great style, and optimizes fuel economy at the same time. These distinctive 16-inch wheels are also available on the SE sedan.
The Accent Hatchback has room for your friends and their bags: A surprising total interior volume of 111.3 cubic feet to be exact. It also has more cargo space with the rear seats up than the Toyota Yaris and Chevy Sonic,* allowing more room for the gear you don't want to leave behind.

The Accent was engineered to outperform. It features an engine that provides consistent power in a variety of driving situations and delivers an EPA-estimated 37 MPG on the highway.
The Accent features an eco-efficient 1.6-liter GDI engine that generates 137 horsepower and 123 lb.-ft. of torque. The Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT) helps improve torque and enhance fuel efficiency so you spend less time at the pump. This 4-cylinder can be coupled with a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC®.
All Accent models with automatic transmission have an Active ECO System that modifies engine and transmission control for improved fuel economy. Based on internal tests, this system provides improvement in real-world fuel efficiency.* That's a big difference
When we're looking to improve performance, no detail is too small to go unnoticed. We've utilized low rolling resistance silica tires to ensure a more efficient ride. Less friction means less energy needed to get you moving.
The Accent's standard safety systems react instantly to help you avoid an accident. And all of these sophisticated safety features are included. You don't pay extra for the latest ideas in safety.
Here's one set of features we hope you'll never see: The airbags. But it's comforting to know they're there. All six of them. The Accent is equipped with front, front side-impact and side-curtain airbags to help protect you if the unavoidable occurs.
Designed to help prevent loss of traction, the Traction Control System (TCS) detects wheel slip and applies the brakes as needed, then transfers power to the wheels that are stable. It's the type of control you can expect from the Accent.
The Accent has plenty of available features that make you seem even smarter and getting around even more comfortable. Whether you're listening to SiriusXM®* on the audio system, controlling the cruise control from your steering wheel or chatting hands-free via available Bluetooth®, you're going to feel smarter for choosing the Accent
