Hyundai Accent vs. Hyundai Elantra | Phil Gilbert Hyundai

If you live in Greater Sydney, you know that having a big car can be a challenging. Whether it's finding a parking space or navigating city driving, your neighbors at Phil Gilbert Hyundai understand that a smaller vehicle can come in handy. Since we have such a great selection of both compact Hyundai cars at Phil Gilbert Hyundai, we thought we’d compare two of our favorites: the 2018 Hyundai Accent versus the 2018 Hyundai Elantra.

Considered a small car, the 2018 Hyundai Elantra, which is available in three models, is a visionary take on the classic sedan. The Hyundai Elantra is sleekly designed and offers superior performance and handling. Powering the Hyundai Elantra are two different engines:
• Nu 2.0-litre 16-valve engine with D-CVVT that produces 112 kW of max power at 6,200 rpm and 192 Nm of torque at 4,700 rpm.
• Gamma 1.6-litre T-GDi 16-valve DOHC engine that puts out 150 kW of max power at 6,000 rpm and 265 Nm of torque at 1,500-4,500 rpm.

Depending on which engine you pick, drivers get a choice of a 6-speed manual, 6-speed automatic transmission with lock up torque converter, or 7-speed DCT. These all help you get fuel consumption as good as 7.1 L/100Km urban and 5.6 L/100km extra urban. When it comes to safety the 2018 Hyundai Elantra handles thanks to a host of active and passive safety features such as ABS, a Brake Assist System, rear view camera with display integrated into a 7.0-inch monitor, side curtain SRS airbags, and ISOFIX. 

As with all Hyundai vehicles available from Phil Gilbert Hyundai, the Hyundai Elantra offers today's leading hi-tech and comfort features including available Smart Bootlid, trip computer, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and rain sensing wipers. To keep you comfortable there is dual climate control and an optional premium leather interior.

This city car is powered by a 1.6-litre GDi DOHC engine with D-CVVT that puts out 103kW of max power at 6,300 rpm and 167 Nm of torque at 4,850 rpm. There is a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission, that helps drivers get an impressive combined fuel consumption of 6.3 L/100km. The 2018 Hyundai Accent, which earned a 5-Star ANCAP safety rating, is extremely safe thanks to protection features like Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, child safety rear door locks, impact sensing auto door unlock, 1st and 2nd row side curtain airbags. To keep you and your passengers connected and entertained, the Hyundai Accent features Bluetooth phone connectivity and audio streaming, Apple CarPlay compatibility, four-speaker audio system, and an AM/FM radio.
