2010 Hyundai Accent US Pricing Announced

South Korean manufacturer Hyundai announced today pricing for the 2010 Accent, together with its high mileage Blue Edition version. The entry level three-door Accent, fitted with the 1.6l engine and a five-speed manual transmission has a MSRP of $9,970, while the top of the range three-door SE trim starts at $16,995.

There will be only one engine offered for the 2010 Accent, namely the 1.6l unit. It can be paired with either a five speed manual or a four speed automatic transmission. The Accent comes in four trim levels: Blue, GS, SE, and GLS.

The Blue trim level promises to bring both low price and increased fuel economy. The main changes made to car include low friction engine components, lower-rolling-resistance silica tires, an optimized thermostat, a "smart" alternator management system, improvements to the underbody airflow management, revised transmission gear ratios and lowered ride height. They make up for a 31 mpg rating.

Accent Blue comes equipped with dual front, side and head curtain airbags six-way adjustable driver seat with armrest and rear spoiler.

The Accent GS comes as standard fitted with air conditioning, tilt steering wheel, maplights, bodycolor mirrors and door handles. Hyundai is however offering a premium package for the GS, consisting of 172-watt AM/FM/XM/CD/MP3 audio system with 6 speakers, power windows, remote keyless entry and, as a first for the GS, ABS.

The SE trim brings both performance and comfort enhancements. The car features a sport-tuned suspension with unique springs, strut valving, stabilizer bar and steering gear, increasing the roll stiffness over the Gs trim by no less than 70 percent.

Additionally, the SE comes equipped with air conditioning, power sunroof, cruise control, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls and remote keyless entry. Some minor tweaks can be found on the exterior as well, as the SE rests on 16-inch alloy wheels and P205/45R16 tires.

And last, the GLS, the most comprehensive of all, includes safety features such as ABS with EBD, (offered in the premium package) and six airbags.

The 2010 Accent will be subject to five-year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper protection, 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty, and seven-year/unlimited mileage anti-perforation coverage.
