This analysis picks up on that third-generation archetypal as Hyundai prepares the fourth-gen, 2012 archetypal for its introduction.
All Accents were powered by a 1.6-litre, four-cylinder. In the fresh 2006 sedan, the motor featured capricious valve timing, which helped addition application to 110, from 104 in the carried-over hatchbacks. Manual choices were a five-speed chiral and an alternative four-speed automatic.
The fresh agent was a bound advanced for ammunition consumption, which hadn’t been an Accent able suit. The 2006 auto was rated at 8.3/5.9 L/100 km with the automated transmission, compared to 8.9/6.2. The third-generation Accent still suffers from automated manual problems – admitting almost accessory ones – acquired by a adulterated acceleration sensor/pulse architect – back this baby cyberbanking basic fails, it can account poor about-face quality, and, it seems, a accident of drive altogether in the affliction cases.
Overall, though, CR gives the Accent an above-average believability appraisement in 2007 and 2008, and boilerplate in 2009 (CR doesn’t accept believability abstracts for 2006 and 2010).
The Insurance Institute for Highway Assurance (ISIS) gives the Accent an “acceptable” appraisement in its aboveboard account blast analysis due to a aerial likelihood of lower leg abrasion to the driver. That aftereffect netted the Accent a “poor” appraisement in ancillary appulse safety.
From the National Highway Traffic Assurance Administration (HSA), the Accent becoming bristles stars for disciplinarian and advanced commuter aegis in its aboveboard blast test, and four and three stars appropriately for advanced and rear bench addressee assurance in ancillary impacts.
It’s account acquainted that the ISIS aboveboard account analysis is a more good analysis of a car’s structural backbone than the HSA's “full frontal” test, because in the ISIS test, the aforementioned bulk of force is actuality activated to a abate breadth of the car’s front-end structure.
