As the world continues to grasp the current situation brought upon by the COVID-19 pandemic, personal mobility has become the highest priority of daily commuters to prevent further spread of the virus. The government is gradually lifting the community quarantine protocols, and every one is carefully adjusting to the reality of the “new normal” following strict physical distancing and other safety measures.

As Filipinos look for cars that would suit their needs during these trying times, Hyundai Asia Resources Inc. launched the fifth-generation Accent to offer the best personal mobility in its class, as well as performance, safety, and sensible style that does not compromise.

The Accent has been a household name since its launch in 1996, becoming Hyundai’s best-selling nameplate at one point and one of its longest-running models in the product line-up of the company. Through the years, the Accent improved its fuel efficiency, comfort, and design to give all owners the best of all worlds in one great package. The tradition continues on its fifth edition, as Hyundai simply puts it, good things truly come in threes:


The all-new Accent has a 1.6-liter CRDi powerful diesel engine, continuing the legacy of Hyundai as a competitive sedan maker. When mated to either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission, it effortlessly delivers power at 128 ps @ 4,000 rpm, and torque at 26.5 kg-m @ 1,500-3,000 rpm. The Accent is also fuel-efficient, as the CRDi Accent variant can travel up to 29.4 kilometers on a single liter of diesel.


Featuring a more solid structure than ever, the ACCENT has Hyundai’s automotive technology that has a built-in 50% Advanced High-Strength Steel (AHSS). It results in a protective body yet lightweight car, improving its driving capabilities and aerodynamics. Aside from dual front airbags, the Accent also met the latest crash safety standards of USA’s National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration.


In terms of appearance, the car still has the signature design of Hyundai with the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design. The Accent’s well-defined lines and seamlessly sculpted contours make it a head-turner on the road for its sensuously sporty style.

The Accent’s interior has a more comfortable and roomier cabin, paired with ergonomic seats, a relaxing driver space, Motor Driven Power Steering, and conveniently positioned controls and vehicle information for simple operation.
