Ok, I have spent some time, but nothing major on searching for 2001 1.6L Accent Gsi performance specs. Who knows what it's 0-100 km/h and 1320m times are? I am guessing the 0-100 time is somewhere just above 10 second mark, seeing as there is only 106 hp, but I really want to know exact figures. And has anyone dyno tested a 2001 Gsi (Gs in the U.S.) to see how much hp is at the wheels?

Ok, I was looking at Mazda RX-7's, my dream car for when a pile of money falls out of the sky and into my hand, and I ended up at a site with one of those horsepower/quarter-mile calculators. While not exact, I did end up with this figure for a quarter mile time: <b>17.8s</b> for a 2001 Accent Gsi. I based this on a 2330lb weight, 2170lb car weight plus 160lb for me, and it said 17.8 seconds for a car with 106hp at the flywheel and 82hp hitting the ground, about a 20% drivetrain loss. However if anyone has actually taken their 2001 to the strip, could they tell me the exact run they got, and the 0-60 time is still eluding me as well as braking distance. I will continue my search... I should be working, but i will continue my search

While not my car, I did find these stats for the 2001 four door with the 1.5L and a 5-spd:
0-60: 10.9s
skidpad: 0.78g
slalom: 60.9 mph
60-0: 141ft

I got this from the Motor Trend site

My bad, the vehicle weight for the 2001 Accent Gsi is 1034kg or 2280lb, so that would give it an estimated 1/4 mile run of <b>18.085s</b>

A hair over 18 seconds in the quarter mile is about right. Although, the 1.6L should be a bit quicker (perhaps high 17s) than the 1.5L.

I drive a slow car.
0 to 60 in 11 seconds (look out!)

I have officially given up, I found too many differing numbers to make sense of. For instance, one site listed the same skidpad value for all 2001 Accents, even though the base model has those very narrow tires and my Gsi has 185/60/14. The same site said the top speed of the Gsi is 160km/h(100mph), which I know is wrong, I had it at 197km/h(122mph) on a backroad. Oh well, I just may have to wait until I get my license back and take it to the dyno for actual horsepower/torque figures and then to the dragstrip for 400m (1/4mile) times. As for 0-100km/h time and 100-0km/h distance , maybe I should just take all the conflicting numbers, add them up, and average them. Or if anyone has these numbers, they could tell me, so I don't go insane<img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>.

for about $100 on ebay you can get a g-tech meter. 0-60 and 1/4mile they are accurate up to a 1/10 of a sec i got a 2k1 1.6 gs

Did a G-Tech measurement a couple of months ago on my 2001 1.6 GS. Times were in the mid 17s. Haven't tried a 1/4 mile run with the custom intake but I don't think 4 horses will make more than a .10 second difference. Keep in mind, the G-tech gizmo doesn't account for driver reaction time/hole shots!
