  • DOHC 16 valve
  • Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI)
  • Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT)
    • Dual control is implemented to use a wider operation range of CVVT to improve torque with better optimized valve operation points
  • Aluminum Block and Head - it's predecessor had a cast iron block
  • 137 horsepower @ 6300 rpm
  • 123 lb.-ft. torque @ 4850 rpm
  • Fuel economy (M/T) - 27 mpg city/38 hwy/31 combined
  • Fuel economy (A/T) - 26 mpg city/37 hwy/30 combined
Accent features new engine technologies
  • Timing chain (Bush roller type) - Improved durability and Noise, Vibration, Harshness (NVH)
  • High pressure fuel system (High pressure pump, GDI injector)
  • GDI Piston & Piston ring - Bowl shape piston is designed for GDI engine. Increases the compression ratio (MPI 10.5 - GDI 11.0). Increases fuel efficiency by changing the ratio
  • Dual CVVT - Uses a wider operation range of CVVT to improve torque with better optimized valve operation points
  • 2-step Variable Intake System (VIS) - Increases engine power and torque at high speeds
  • Individual ignition (stick coil type)
  • Shim-less MLA (Solid tappet)
  • Plastic Intake manifold (reversed intake and exhaust manifold)

    • Reduces unintended understeer (plowing)
    • Reduces unintended oversteer (fishtailing)
    • TCS reduces wheel spin under acceleration
    • ESC cannot compensate for severe driver error
  • Anti-lock Braking System helps maintain vehicle steering control
    • while braking under slippery road conditions (e.g., ice, snow, rain)
    • during emergency braking situations under any road conditions
  • Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD)
    • Balances braking forces at each wheel when the car is dynamically loaded
    • 4-sensor, 4-channel system
  • Brake Assist,/
    • Assists driver to provide maximum ABS-level braking force when an emergency stop is detected
    • Effectively reduces emergency stopping distance
