Hyundai Accent 0-60 times

Out of all performance specs, nothing but Hyundai Accent 0-60 times can better speak about the vehicle's temper. While horsepower and torque blow smoke in the eyes, Accent zero to sixty specs and average time to run a quarter mile are pretty straightforward metrics allowing to compare against its competitors.

Very often there is no chance of doing Accent 0-to-60 test personally and making conclusions from the experience of the other drivers is the last thing you want.

Conducting a trustworthy test drive requires following a strict methodology that is intended to eliminate the inconsistent circumstances like weather, tires, surface, engine temperature. It is always better to leave it for professionals.


Increase Horsepower

The cold air part is also important in making more power. Cold air is denser and contains more oxygen molecules than warm air does. So if you can get cooler air into your Hyundai Accent engine, your car will be able to mix more fuel with that air, making more power. Combine that with the more air through the larger and less restrictive filter and intake tube and you can see up to a 15-20 horsepower increase. K&N has even reported an estimated increase of 56.96 horsepower out of the 57-2571 intake for 2007-2009 Shelby GT500!

The Hyundai Accent hardly wins when it comes to granting honors. The roomiest subcompact award goes to the Honda Fit, the Toyota Yaris takes one for being the most fun to drive while the Nissan Versa takes the one for affordability. However, this doesn’t mean that the Accent isn’t worth it. The 2018 model has seen refinement, with Hyundai making strides to uphold sophistication, efficiency and affordability.

The Accent is a somewhat average contender when it comes to engine performance. Its 1.6-litre inline-four engine in the SEL and SE six-speed automatic transmissions arrives at 60mph in 8.9 seconds. This is 1.4 seconds later than the two six-speed manual. The automatic’s lower 36mpg in a 75-mph highway fuel-economy tests only adds insult to injury as the manual stands at 41mpg.

A lack of performance in the Limited gets mitigated by the larger wheel-and-tire package. This helps to produce better results at the skidpad at 0.81g. It also has a shorter braking distance of 169gt from 70mph. The SE comes second at 0.85g and 173 feet. Larger wheels (at 17 inches), however, mean that you will have a less comfortable ride. It’s not rough, but has a significant difference when compared to the SE with its narrow 15-inch wheels.

Hyundai’s designs brings out a more mature look on the Accent. It features a hexagonal grille that’s accompanied by an impressive chrome trim and modern LED lights. Unfortunately, Americans only get the sedan as Hyundai is yet to introduce the hatchback into the market.

The Accent does pack plenty of practicality. There’s plenty of headroom and legroom at the rear seats. The trunk can hold up to 6 suitcases and 18 suitcases when the rear seats are folded. This is way more than what the Rio can handle. The cabin features an unobtrusive dashboard and large glass areas that brings an airy feeling to the front.

The humbler Accent does feature some comfortable and acceptable qualities. Unless it’s imperative to add on the extras, it’s not necessary to go for the higher-priced automatic transmission or Limited trim level. The SE manual is pretty decent and competes well against the lower subcompacts within the market.
