Vancouver, British Columbia – Hyundai Canada revealed the redesigned 2006 Hyundai Accent sedan in Vancouver this week. It will arrive in dealerships later this year.
The 2006 Accent is 8 cm taller, a little wider and longer and the wheelbase has been stretched by 5 cm. There’s also more power under the hood in the form of a new 1.6-litre engine that features variable valve timing and delivers up to 110 horsepower and 107 lb-ft of torque.
A list of safety features includes front seat-mounted side-airbags and roof-mounted side-curtain airbags for both the front and rear seat occupants, in addition to dual front airbags.
