The new model year for the Hyundai Accent brings more goodies offered as standard equipment, such as sliding sun visors, driver’s side blind spot mirror and one-touch triple turn signals. The entry-level sound system now benefits from improved voice recognition technology and also has a new button layout. Opt for either the four-door Premium or the five-door SE and you also receive a tilt/telescopic steering wheel, LED-infused projector beam headlights and auto up/down driver’s side window. SE model is optionally available with a new B&M Racing sport shifter.
