Key jumbled in your pocket? With the available proximity key, it doesn’t matter. Simply approach the Accent and it will sense the proximity key fob, so all you need to do is press the front door handle button to unlock the doors.

1.6L GDI engine
The Accent features an eco-efficient 1.6L Gasoline Direct Injection engine that generates 130 horsepower and 119 lb-ft of torque.
6-speed manual or Smartstream IVT
The 2020 Accent features a new, eco-efficient Smartstream G1.6 engine that generates 120 horsepower and 113 lb-ft of torque. Choose between the standard 6-speed manual transmission or our newly developed available Smartstream Intelligent Variable Transmission — designed to replicate the natural acceleration of conventional automatic shifting gears with the added benefit of greater fuel efficiency.
Aerodynamic air vents
Integrated air vents on each side of the lower front bumper minimize air twisting around the wheel to provide less resistance. The result is enhanced drivability and fuel efficiency.
At the core of the Accent is the SUPERSTRUCTURE™, a state-of-the-art platform built with our very own Advanced High Strength Steel to deliver exceptional stiffness and strength. In the event of a collision, the SUPERSTRUCTURE™ helps protect occupants inside the vehicle by absorbing harmful energy and redirecting it away from the passenger compartment.
The rigid composition of the SUPERSTRUCTURE™ not only delivers enhanced safety, the stronger and stiffer frame means our engineers can tune key suspension components more precisely to reach a balance between handling control and ride.
Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA)
The available safety feature uses radar to detect rapidly closing speeds to the vehicle ahead. If a potential forward collision is detected, audible and visual warning notifications alert the driver. If the driver does not react to avoid the impact, the system can provide full braking assistance to help avoid a potential collision.
Rearview camera with dynamic guidelines
Reverse out of narrow driveways and parallel park with greater confidence with the standard review camera.
The Accent is equipped with six standard airbags: two advanced front airbags, two seat-mounted side-impact airbags and two side-curtain roof-mounted airbags with rollover sensors.
4-wheel disc brakes
Available 4-wheel disc brakes provide an extra level of confidence with a larger friction surface and better cooling capabilities than regular drum-style brakes.
