Safety

The Accent comes with a number of standard safety features we haven't seen in this class. Chief among them is standard stability control, which is required by law on all 2012 models but isn't present on many subcompacts currently on sale, even as an option. Active front head restraints and side-impact and side curtain airbags are also standard.

The Accent has not yet been crash-tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
