Hyundai Accent (2011)

The smallest of the company's "fluidic" sedans, the new Hyundai Accent joins the i20 hatchback late Q3 2011.

Derek loves nothing more than punching a remote location into a GPS, queuing up some music and heading out on a long drive, so it's a good thing he's in charge of CNET Australia's Car Tech channel.


In brief

The Hyundai Accent is the smallest canvas to be visited by the company's "fluidic sculpture" styling theme and, to our eyes, the least avante garde. When it goes on sale later this year, the Accent will be the sedan accompaniment to the i20 hatchback.

Features seen on international Accents include a reversing camera that's displayed on the rear-view mirror, climate control, keyless entry and push button start, iPod connectivity, Bluetooth hands-free, steering wheel audio controls, a trip computer with fuel economy info and indicators in the wing mirrors.

Overseas, two petrol engines are offered in the new generation Accent: a 79kW/136Nm 1.4-litre and a 91kW/156Nm 1.6-litre. Also available is a 94kW/260Nm 1.6-litre turbo-diesel. Depending on the engine, the car features a five- or six-speed manual, or a four-speed automatic.

Outlook

The Accent goes on sale late in Q3 2011 after the new Elantra hits the market. Pricing and specifications won't revealed until closer to the official launch.
