Safety is at the heart of every Hyundai vehicle, and the Accent is no exception. The high tensile, reinforced steel frame is just the starting point. The Accent also delivers high levels of advanced active and passive safety technologies to ensure maximum protection for you and your passengers.
This includes Hyundai’s innovative Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system to help keep you safer on the road, no matter the conditions. Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BAS) also come as standard, as do six airbags. All of which adds up to a 5-star ANCAP safety rating, the highest possible rating for a motor vehicle in New Zealand.

The Hyundai Accent has been tested and awarded the highest possible safety rating for adult occupant protection in a passenger vehicle, 5-stars.
Brake Assist (BAS) and Anti-lock brakes (ABS) help you maintain control when braking, while Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD) applies the optimum pressure to individual brakes in all braking situations.
The Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system detects grip levels on mixed surfaces and applies steering and brake assistance to maintain traction and stability.
To ensure you and your passengers are fully protected in the unlikely event of a collision; we’ve installed plenty of interior safety equipment into the Accent. There are six airbags, along with supportive active front head restraints that actually move up and forward in the event of a rear-end collision. This helps reduce whiplash-style injuries.
The Accent is designed to keep Kiwi families as safe as possible, with tether child seat anchor points in the rear and ISOFIX child seat anchor points on rear outside seats as well.
