ACCENT PERFORMANCE & HANDLING
Available in GLS, GS, and SE trim levels and as either a 5-door hatchback or a 4-door sedan, the front-wheel drive 2012 Accent gets its power from the segment's only direct-injection engine, a 1.6-liter GDI inline-4-cylinder powertrain that features dual continuously variable valve timing (D-CVVT) on the intake and exhaust camshafts. This engine puts out best-in-class 138 horsepower and 123 pound-feet of torque. Transmission choices include a 6-speed manual transmission and a gate-type 6-speed SHIFTRONIC automatic transmission with overdrive lock-up torque converter and an Active Eco button that increases fuel efficiency by up to 7% while conducting real-world driving. And no matter what body style, transmission, or trim level you choose to drive, the Accent achieves best-in-class standard fuel efficiency of 30 city/40 highway MPG. No other subcompact can make this claim, not even the Ford Fiesta, which can achieve 40 MPG highway only on select trims.
ACCENT STANDARD & OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT
Inside the 2012 Accent, you will find no less than best-in-class cargo space with the rear seat up, beating out even the spacious Honda Fit. The hatchback sports 90.1 cubic feet of overall passenger volume, while the sedan has slightly less volume at 89.7 cubic feet. Transport longer items with the standard 60/40 split fold-down rear seatback, a feature that neither Toyota Yaris nor Nissan Versa offers standard. Smaller items have their place, too, thanks to features like an overhead sunglass storage, front map pockets with bottle holders, storage tray, dual front cup holders, front glove compartment and a segment-first sliding armrest storage console. Steering-wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls allow you to activate the cruise control, turn up the audio system volume and change the station all while keeping your eyes straight ahead and hands on the wheel. And with the Bluetooth hands-free phone system with voice recognition, you can make and take calls completely hands-free.
