2012 Hyundai Accent Owners Manual – Totally remodeled, the 2012 Hyundai Accent functions a more robust and productive engine, a new several-door hatchback body style and improved interior.
Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options
The 2012 Hyundai Accent is a compact several-doorway sedan or several-door hatchback. The sedan is presented only in base GLS trim, while the hatchback comes in GS and the best-collection SE trims.
The Premium package provided on auto-equipped GLS models bundles with each other foglights, 16-” alloy rims, keyless entry, premium towel furniture, up-graded interior trim, a middle storage gaming console with moving armrest, cruise manage, steering-wheel-mounted sound controls and Wireless Bluetooth.

Powertrains and Performance
The 2012 Hyundai Accent’s single engine is a new 1.6-liter direct-injection four-cylinder which produces 138 hp and 123 lb-feet of torque. The front-wheel-drive Accent is provided by possibly a normal half a dozen-speed manual transmission or recommended six-speed automated with a gas-economy-boosting Eco setting. In Edmunds performance tests, an Accent GLS with the auto moved from zero to 60 miles per hour in 9.8 seconds — a relatively speedy time for the class.
EPA gas economy estimates with the auto transmission are 28 mpg area/37 miles per gallon freeway and 31 mpg combined with the auto transmission and 28/37/32 with the manual.
All 2012 Hyundai Accents have a extended listing of normal safety functions including antilock disc braking system with brake aid, stability and grip control, productive entrance mind restraints, entrance seat area-effect safety bags and part curtain safety bags.
Interior Design and Special Features
In addition to stretching its footprint, the 2012 Hyundai Accent’s new interior proportions graduate it from the subcompact section into the EPA’s official “compact” course. A lot of the Accent’s further space comes from the rear seat, with increased headroom and legroom creating the backseat ride comfy even for 6-foot passengers. The sloping roof series does eat into some available headroom, nevertheless, and 5th passengers will find the rear seat’s elevated center section useful only when jogging is the leftover option.
The Accent sedan delivers relatively huge trunk space at 13.7 cubic ft. The 4-door hatchback, meanwhile, gives 21.2 cubic toes of cargo volume with the rear seats up and 47.5 cubic ft when folded.
In the times of 500-plus-hp supercars, the 2012 Hyundai Accent’s 138-hp production might sound paltry. But this stylish direct-injection several-cylinder pulls significantly more robust than the power vegetation of its main competitors (with the different of the turbocharged Chevy Sonic). Equally the six-speed manual and the 6-speed automatic transmissions make excellent use of that production, also. Beneath difficult acceleration, the engine remains clean but may get rather loud.
