The Accent is powered by a 1.6-liter double overhead-cam engine that produces 110 horsepower and features variable valve timing. A five-speed manual transmission is standard; a four-speed automatic transmission is optional. The environmentally friendly Accent has an Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle II rating. Standard safety features include front seatbelt pre-tensioners and six airbags (front, seat-mounted side-impact, and side-curtain) on all models. The Accent is available in several trims: GL, GS or SE on the hatchback and GLS on the four-door sedan.
For 2011, the Accent renames its Blue trim the GL trim, the GS receives a new standard 172-watt audio system and the power sunroof has been removed from the SE in an effort to make it more affordable.
