Debuting in the all-new 2012 Hyundai Accent, the 1.6-liter GDI Gamma engine is a masterpiece in the realm of efficiency and design. While drivers love the fuel economy savings that this new engine offers in the Accent, true gear heads can't help but notice its impeccable build-quality as well. In fact, Manly Hyundai is hard pressed to find anyone who isn't impressed with the South Korean automaker's new engine. As such, we're happy to announce that WardsAuto World has recently featured the Gamma engine on its "Ward's 10 Best Engines" list for the first time.
While this is the first time that a smaller engine from Hyundai has been featured on the list, we should note that it's not the first time that any engine from the Italicized H has made the cut. Previously, the company's famous Tau 5.0-liter V8 engine was honored... For three years in a row. Impressive, right? This year, however, Hyundai is proving that they can be dynamic in their ability to pay an extraordinary amount of attention to detail as well. And if the previous engine's run is any indicator, we have a feeling that the 1.6-liter Gamma will hold its spot on the list for years to come.
The 2012 Hyundai Accent, powered by the Gamma engine, is a great subcompact vehicle that drivers in the greater Santa Rosa area can't seem to get enough of. Be sure to check out the details below for more information, then feel free to contact Manly Hyundai today. Located at 2755 Corby Ave Santa Rosa, CA 95407, we're always happy to answer any questions that you may have and arrange a test drive at your next convenience.
