2008 HYUNDAI ACCENT
For more than 10 years, Hyundai Accent built a solid reputation by offering high-quality, great value, unexpected features and performance at entry-level prices. For 2008, Accent offers a host of new standard equipment, as well as several exterior and interior improvements, raising the bar again in the compact car segment.
Accent is offered in a four-door sedan (the Accent GLS) and three-door models (the Accent GS and SE).
Accent is powered by a 1.6-liter DOHC inline four-cylinder engine with CVVT, and a five-speed manual transmission as standard, with lower gearing for quicker, sportier acceleration. An optional four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive and lock-up torque converter is available.
The standard B&M Racing sport shifter adds shorter throw-lengths and more precision to Accent SE's performance-tuned driving dynamics. Accent is now the only car in its class to offer XM Satellite Radio with three months of free service as standard equipment with the vehicle's audio system. The auxiliary input jack allows iPods and other portable MP3 players to be connected directly into Accent's audio system.
