The 2015 Hyundai Accent features the all-aluminum 1.6-liter Gamma four-cylinder engine, that was named one of Ward’s 10 Best Engines in 2012. The advanced engine features the latest innovations in vehicle engine technology, allowing for maximum horsepower and torque.
Drivers of the 2015 Accent can expect 137 horsepower and 123 lb.-ft. of torque, along with impressive fuel economy. The 2015 Accent can achieve up to 27 miles per gallon in the city, and 38 miles per gallon on the highway, when equipped with the 6-speed manual transmission.
The secret behind the engine’s power lies in the use of Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI). The Accent is the first subcompact car to utilize this technology, which helps increase fuel economy, power, and reduce emissions. The Gamma engine on the 2015 Hyundai Accent also includes the following technology, which allows for optimum reliability and lowered cost:
Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing
Roller Timing Chain
Electronic Throttle Control
Innovative Anti-Friction Coatings
Hyundai is so confident in this high-efficient engine, that it is backed up by the automaker’s 10-year or 100,000 mile powertrain warranty. Drivers can not only expect superb power and performance on their 2015 Hyundai Accent, but also a level of reliability only Hyundai can offer.
The 2015 Honda Fit is the only other vehicle in its segment that offers a Gasoline Direct Injection engine. Even with the GDI, the Fit delivers less horsepower and torque than the 2015 Accent, making Hyundai’s subcompact car the perfect choice for drivers who want power, without sacrificing efficiency.
The 2015 Hyundai Accent stands alone in the subcompact car segment, as the most powerful option to car buyers. No other competitor can match the horsepower, torque, or efficiency that the 2015 Accent delivers.
