The compact and aerodynamic Accent is a real whizz about town, receiving admiring glances wherever it goes. The design is strong and purposeful, with a chrome radiator grille, striking curved headlights and a distinctive rear bumper and taillight design. Flowing lines and stylish alloy wheels complete the Accent’s sporty look.
Side Mirror Indicators
The Accent is not just about looking good, it’s about keeping you safe too. Indicator lights are stylishly built into the side mirrors, making it easy for other road users to see when you indicate to turn or change lanes. (Elite model only)
The rear spoiler is another example of style with safety in mind. Flowing lines along the chassis draw your eye to the aerodynamic rear spoiler, which comes with an integrated stop light to warn vehicles behind. (Elite models only)
The Accent may be small, but it’s not lacking when it comes to eye-catching design. Distinctive 16-inch alloy wheels give the Accent a premium feel, with two great designs to choose from on Entry and Elite models.

To ensure you and your passengers are fully protected in the unlikely event of a collision; we’ve installed plenty of interior safety equipment into the Accent.
