How Safe Is the 2019 Hyundai Accent?


How Safe is the 2019 Hyundai Accent?

Hyundai has built its reputation on reliability, value, and safety, and the 2019 Hyundai Accent follows in the footsteps of many other Hyundai models by offering this triad. With America’s Best Warranty and an MSRP starting at only $14,995, the car certainly is well-built and affordable. It also ranks highly in safety, which is proven by the variety of awards it has received.

Stellar Standard Safety Features

Every 2019 Accent comes with the standard safety features that you’d want and expect a new car to have. For example, each one for sale near Cicero, Berwyn, and surrounding areas comes with:

  • Vehicle stability management
  • Electronic stability control and traction control
  • Anti-lock brakes with brake assist
  • Electronic brake-force distribution
  • Advanced airbags and side-impact airbags

Of course, there are also crumple zones, side reinforcements and other features you likely won’t notice and hopefully won’t ever need. The one additional standard feature you will see is a rear-view camera, which helps avoid potentially tragic accidents when backing up.

This list alone doesn’t necessarily make the 2019 Hyundai Accent’s safety stand out, but it’s important to know those essentials are there -- especially when you’re looking at a car that starts under $15,000.

Multiple Extra Safety Features Available

For added protection, the 2019 Hyundai Accent offers a variety of additional safety features that can either be added to a trim or come as standard features on the higher trims. Some of these include:

  • Forward collision-avoidance assist
  • Driver’s blind-spot mirror
  • Hill assistant control
  • LED headlights
  • LED daytime running lights

Importantly, all of these can be added while keeping the car an affordable price. Even with each of the options mentioned, the 2019 Accent still has an MSRP substantially below $20,000.

Award-Winning Safety Recognized by the IIHS

What does set the 2019 Accent apart from many other cars (especially ones in this price range) is the recognition it received from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

When equipped with the LED lights and forward collision-avoidance assist, the 2019 Accent is an IIHS Top Safety Pick. This is one of the highest accolades from one of the most recognized third-party organizations in automotive safety.
