The engineers involved in the design process really outdid themselves with the 2008 Hyundai Accent. Unlike many car manufacturers, the people at Hyundai understand that quality, safety and style don’t have to always add up to a huge price tag. When Hyundai entered the American market, consumers were shown a set of vehicles that didn’t look like their children’s toy cars, didn’t perform like their children’s toy cars and yet didn’t force them to remortgage their homes to purchase.
This year, Hyundai brought back that same type of business and design practice with the Accent. With more interior room than the Honda Civic, the ‘08 Accent also has much more to offer than its major competitors. The car comes in three models: the GS and SE (both three door designs) and the GLS (the four door design). No matter which model consumers decide on, they’ll be surrounded by high quality, high class features.
For example, the 2008 Accent gives drivers peace of mind with dual front airbags, roof mounted side-curtain airbags and front seat mounted side-impact airbags. All models also come with an available Anti-lock braking system (ABS) and Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD). Without a doubt, the Accent will stop when drivers want it to. Still, there’s more to this vehicle than just safety.
The 2008 Hyundai Accent’s engine is a powerful and fuel efficient dynamo that boasts Continuously Variable Valve Timing ULEV. This translates to up to 33 miles per gallon, saving hundreds if not thousands of dollars a year at the gas pump. Available in a wide variety of colors, the G3 model starts at $10,775. The SE has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $14,575 and the GLS four door can be out the door for as little as $12,925.
