Western Washington Hyundai dealer sells the Accent, America's top selling sub-compact!

Last week, I told you about the safety information on the Hyundai Accent, for sale in Western Washington at Rairdon's Hyundi of Bellingham. I also told you about the engine, the interior and the exterior refinements. What I didn't tell you about is how popular this car is!

The Hyundai Accent, for sale in Bellingham, was America's best-selling sub-compact car in July. The Accent beat out top selling vehicles like the Ford Fiesta, Honda Fit, Mazda2, Toyota Yaris, Chevrolet Aveo and Kia Rio.

"The all-new Accent outsold two great small cars we really respect in July - the Honda Fit and Ford Fiesta," said John Krafcik, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America.  "In fact, it was the best-selling subcompact in the industry last month, its first full month of sales.  It's a good indication that consumers are connecting with our new design, 40-mpg fuel economy, and the Assurance Trade-In Value Guarantee.  It's a great recipe for this economy."
The 2012 Accent's all-aluminum 1.6-liter Gamma four-cylinder engine uses the latest engine technology to deliver a class-leading 138 horsepower and 123 lb-ft of torque and a best-in-class standard 30 mpg city and 40 mpg highway fuel economy rating.       
The engine's most notable feature is its use of Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI), a first for the sub-compact category. By precisely controlling the injection of fuel, GDI allows for better fuel economy, increased power and reduced emissions.                                          
The 2012 Hyundai Accent will be the fourth nameplate in the Hyundai lineup delivering 40 MPG on the highway, including the Sonata Hybrid, Elantra and Veloster. Accent's class-leading standard fuel economy is an example of Hyundai's dedication to improving fuel efficiency with advancements to traditional gasoline powered vehicles.
