Defy convention on the streets and roads of Palm Springs with the 2013 Hyundai Accent.  Offering amazing value and class-above features, the Accent’s standard options, safety, and fuel economy are among the best in its class.

New for the 2013 model year, the GLS MT base model now includes a/c, AM/FM/SiriusXM Satellite Radio/CD/MP3 audio system with 6 speakers, iPod/USB auxiliary input jacks, power and heated body-colored side mirrors, body-colored door handles and sunglass holders.  Remote keyless entry with panic feature and cloth insert door trims are also standard on all trims to give drivers greater comfort.  Heated side mirrors are now also standard on all models.  A power sunroof and turn signal indicators are standard on the 2013MY and SE trim.

A long list of safety features is now standard because Hyundai doesn’t believe drivers should have to pay a premium for safety.  Six airbags protect occupants in case of a collision, including two front impact airbags, two front seat-mounted side impact airbags, and curtain side-impact airbags for front and rear passengers.  Standard front-seat active head restraints help prevent whiplash by reducing the space between a front occupant’s head and the head restraint during certain rear collisions.  These active head restraints are highly recommended by safety organizations such as the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

The 2013 Hyundai Accent has an underlying structure engineered to protect occupants using a Collision Load Dispersion (CLD) mechanism.  Rear doors also have internal beams for an added layer of protection and safety.  This structure distributes the force of an impact in three ways to maintain the integrity of the cabin.

Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Traction Control work together to help deliver superior handling in almost any driving conditions. Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) integrates control of the ESC and Motor-Driven Power Steering (MDPS) to provide handling assistance in slippery or sudden cornering situations.

The Accent’s all-aluminum 1.6-liter Gamma four-cylinder engine features the latest innovations in engine technology.  Selected as one of Ward’s 10 Best Engines, it delivers an unsurpassed 138 horsepower and 123 lb-ft of torque.  This creates a standard 28 mpg city and 37 mpg highway EPA fuel economy rating.

The engine’s most notable feature is its use of Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI). By precisely controlling the injection of fuel, GDI allows for better fuel economy, increased power and reduced emissions. The application of Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT) on both intake and exhaust camshafts increases efficiency, improves fuel economy and reduces emissions.  To reduce lifetime operation costs and increase reliability, the Gamma engine features a maintenance-free silent roller timing chain.

When working together, the complete range of engine technologies offers unsurpassed specific output at 86 horsepower per liter, low emissions with ULEV certification, and reliability backed by a 10 year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.

Available in six-speed manual or automatic with SHIFTRONIC manual control, delivering smooth and efficient power delivery, the 2013 Hyundai Accent is made for the streets of Southern California.  The 2013 Hyundai Accent is perfect for the Palm Springs commuter, and anyone looking for performance, safety, and fuel efficiency.  Available in Century White, Ironman Silver, Cyclone Gray, Ultra Black, Boston Red, Mocha Bronze, Marathon Blue, Clearwater Blue and Electrolyte Green, there is an Accent for any style in the Coachella Valley.
