Hyundai nabs safety, roominess, power and warranty
The 2007 Accent SE 3- Door delivers safety equipment, gas efficiency, comfort and power that is surprising for such an economical, sub-compact car. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, there's a 45% reduction in fatalities from side-impact collisions, when vehicles are equipped with the combination of side-impact airbags and head- protecting side curtain airbags. And the Hyundai Accent is right on the mark when it comes to safety. This Korean gem offers dual front airbags, front seat mounted side impact airbags and roof mounted side curtain airbags.
Moreover, the available remote keyless entry system with alarm and panic button also offers great peace of mind. One feature of the keyless entry system that I found impressive is that if you unlock the doors using the remote, and do not open the doors for thirty seconds, the system automatically relocks the car. This would prove to be a great security feature if you unintentionally press the door unlock button.
Furthermore, giving the driver 32 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway, the Accent is easy even on the tightest fuel budget. This efficient Multi-Port Fuel Injected little baby will go a long way between fill-ups with an 11.9 gallon fuel tank.
Also, I was pleasantly surprised the leg room in such a small car. And believe me there is plenty of that room for a Texas sized man. Going with the tradition of space, the back seat has enough room for small children.
Moreover, music lovers, this car has your tune with 6 speaker sound system. The 6 CD- changer makes the weakest recordings sound great.
The engine when put to test proved to be a kicker with a 1.6 liter, 16 valve 4 cylinder engine - delivers plenty of power for a car in its class. While the 2007 Accent may not win any trophies at the drag strip, it will do 0 – 60 in just over 9 seconds, which means you have the power to get into traffic safely even in the busiest of cities.
Averagely priced $15,000 for a fully loaded sub-compact on the market, Hyundai definitely delivers a lot of quality for the price.
