The All New 2016 Accent | Safety Features
The Accent's standard safety systems react instantly to help you avoid an accident. And all of these sophisticated safety features are included. You don't pay extra for the latest ideas in safety.
Here's one set of features we hope you'll never see: The airbags. But it's comforting to know they're there. All six of them. The Accent is equipped with front, front side-impact and side-curtain airbags to help protect you if the unavoidable occurs.
The comprehensive Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system on the Accent links and optimizes the function of active safety features, incorporating Motor-Driven Power Steering (MDPS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Traction Control System (TCS). It's all the stability features you want, controlled by one very impressive management system.
When Electronic Stability Control (ESC) senses a skid is imminent, it responds immediately. It does this by applying the appropriate amount of braking to individual wheels and adjusting throttle input. This helps keep you on your intended path.
Designed to help prevent loss of traction, the Traction Control System (TCS) detects wheel slip and applies the brakes as needed, then transfers power to the wheels that are stable. It's the type of control you can expect from the Accent.
You can control your ride with confidence knowing you have Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD). This dynamic system balances braking forces at each wheel to help you maintain control during sudden braking. So you can brake with poise and composure each and every time
ABS is a big deal in the city and on the highway. This system helps prevent the possibility of wheel lockup under hard braking to help you retain steering control as you come to a stop.
