It’s a fast-moving world, so it’s important to catch people’s eye. The Accent does just that, with a profile that’s modern, athletic and futuristic. Up front, a smartly-designed radiator grille announces the car’s personality head-on. With a long low cabin space, wide wheelbase and short front overhang, the Accent’s proportions tell you all you need to know about its sporty nature. And leave you in no doubt that this is one stylish vehicle.
With its distinctive outline, the Accent has real presence on the road. Take it into the city – the place where trends are set – and you’ll find yourself setting a trend of your own. One where comfort meets functionality, where street toughness is built in, and where enjoyment is never far behind.
Modern and architectural
The blueprint for the cabin layout
The Accent’s driver space has been designed around the driver. It sounds obvious, but it’s something that’s often overlooked. The seat position provides you with a commanding view of the road ahead. Controls are logically positioned, while dials and instrumentation are placed in a natural, uninterrupted eye-line. The balanced proportions of the symmetric, Y-shaped center fascia panel carry through to the doors with their sporty grip handles. The steering wheel is a three-spoke design that fits comfortably in the hands, while trim details are in stylish semi-glossy black, or white pearl high-glossy for unique visual impact.
The Accent’s seats offer good firm support to make even the longest journeys comfortable. And because wind noise can affect your enjoyment when driving at a constant speed, sound proofing has been optimized throughout the vehicle, with noise intake prevention structures around the door handles, engine air intakes built to emit less noise, and anti-noise connectors in the outside mirrors. There are elegant interior trims to choose from, while rear door cup holders let your passengers keep their drinks secure.
