Space is key for any small car, and thanks to its longer wheelbase the Accent has it in droves. Inside, the feeling of space is instantly impressive. But it’s the legroom that really stretches the gap – like being upgraded from economy to business class. In fact whether you’re behind the wheel, a backseat driver or lucky enough to be riding shotgun, the spacious interior of the Accent offers comfort and refinement at every level.
Sounds great. Listen to your favorite music loud and clear with the Accent Elite’s six speaker audio system. All models feature iPod connectivity, integrated Bluetooth audio streaming and auxiliary input.
Steering wheel mounted audio including seek-and-skip function, cruise controls (Elite model only) and Bluetooth pick up / hang up are conveniently placed at your fingertips so you don’t take your eyes off the road.
Bluetooth handsfree is available on all Accent models and means you can safely talk on your phone while driving. The system in the Accent is driven through the stereo and works with all Bluetooth enabled phones, with the ability to answer and end calls using the steering wheel mounted controls.
With the proximity key in your pocket, the Accent recognises you and with the touch of a button on the door handle, the Accent unlocks itself without you needing to use the key (Elite model only). The Smart Lighting System on the Elite model keeps the lights on long enough so you can find your way in the dark.
Designed to be bright and easily readable, yet attractive and stylish. The supervision cluster also reduces fatigue on the eyes with the addition of soft blue lighting (Elite model only).
Proximity key technology enables you to lock and unlock your Accent Elite without taking the key from your pocket or bag. Similarly, the push button start allows you to turn on the ignition without having to insert the key (Elite model only).
Stay connected. Plug your iPod, smartphone or personal music player straight into the audio system and listen to your music when and wherever.
Cruise control means you can relax whilst maintaining a constant speed, ideal for open road driving, and again, you can control this all from your steering wheel (Elite model only).
Here’s another nice touch. When you’re changing lanes, the Accent Elite model signals the right direction with one-touch triple turn indicators.
This is truly enlightened technology. Auto dusk sensing headlights on the Elite model turn on as the light fades. And because there’s an over-ride switch – you can keep control should you wish.
The fully auto air-conditioning system on the Elite model means you can set the desired car temperature and let the system take care of the rest, ensuring interior climate that is always as you like it. Manual air-conditioning on entry models with 4-speed blower control enables you to adjust the temperature manually to your preference.
To make your journeys more comfortable, the headrests of the Accent are adjustable – up and down – raising to suit the seat occupant’s head level.
