It starts with what’s under the hood: a 110-horsepower four-cylinder engine that gives a superb performance when paired with the standard five-speed manual transmission. Same goes for some of the items on the car’s standard equipment list, such as the six-speaker stereo with satellite radio capability and a USB audio input new to midrange GS models this year. Come and test drive the Hyundai Accent at your Orlando Hyundai dealer.

The 2011 Hyundai Accent is available in a choice of two-door hatchback and four-door sedan body styles. The hatchback is offered in three trim levels, including the renamed entry-level GL, midrange GS and top-of-the-line SE. The sedan can be had in a single trim level known as the GLS.
The base GL hatchback features 14-inch steel wheels, variable intermittent windshield wipers, a six-way-adjustable driver seat, 60/40 split-folding rear seatbacks and a rear window defroster.
The GS adds an automatic transmission, air-conditioning, body-colored outside mirrors and door handles, a rear window wiper/washer, a tilt-adjustable steering wheel and a 172-watt, six-speaker stereo with satellite radio and USB/auxiliary audio inputs. Power accessories, keyless entry and an alarm are all available as part of the Premium package.
Orlando Hyundai shoppers will find that the sporty Accent SE two-door hatchback adds 16-inch cast-aluminum wheels, firmer suspension tuning, foglights, cruise control and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls.
The front-wheel-drive 2011 Hyundai Accent is equipped with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 110 hp and 106 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is standard on all models except the GS, which gets a four-speed automatic that’s also available as an option on all but the entry-level GL. In performance testing, a manual-equipped Accent went from zero to 60 mph in 9.4 seconds.
In regard to fuel economy, the Accent models equipped with the four-speed automatic return EPA estimates of 27 mpg city/36 mpg highway and 30 mpg combined. Models with the five-speed manual are rated at 28 mpg city/34 mpg highway and 30 mpg combined.
All 2011 Hyundai Accents are equipped with front-seat side-impact airbags and full-length side curtain airbags.
In brake testing, an Accent with ABS stopped from 60 mph in 122 feet; without it, that distance shoots up to 155 feet.
