Hyundai Accent Review
The second-generation Hyundai Accent models employed design cues that involved both curves and sharp edges giving it a very bold stance on the road. However the finish was not the best on the exterior and the interior and it gave out a rather inferior vibe. Hyundai has managed to address these issues with the fourth generation design, which incorporates both dynamic and futuristic elements that has resulted in a design that has presence and a premium look and feel.
On the features front the second-generation Accent models came with Air Conditioning, Power Steering, Power Shutters, Power Mirrors and a Power Antenna. The fourth generation models come with six airbags, VSM (Vehicle Stability Management), Driver’s blind spot mirror, Electronic Stability Control, Traction Control, ABS, EBD and a Brake Assist system, making the Hyundai Accent a safer alternative car.
