On the Korean market came the sedan and hatchback Hyundai Accent 2018 model year.
Hyundai’s compact sedan was replaced by a generation back in 2016: the first market for the new generation model was China, where it is called Verna. In 2017, Indian Verna and North American Accent were introduced. But in the homeland of the brand, the model of the previous generation is still being sold – also under the name Accent, and it was not affected by the modernization, which in 2014, Chinese variant was exposed. The last time the Korean version was updated in May last year, then the model changed the grille and the front bumper. In Accent-2018 new things even more modest.
So, in Korea the palette of colors of a body of a sedan and a hatchback has replenished with a shade of Galactic Gray (silver), plus for model it is possible to order 16-inch disks of new design. The sedan has a new kit (goes immediately behind the base) Smart Special, it includes: armchair with artificial leather, audio system with USB and Bluetooth and steering wheel controls, six airbags, air conditioning. For a surcharge for this variant of execution, heating of the steering wheel, front seats and exterior mirrors is available.
The engines from Hyundai Accent are the same: in the home market the sedan and hatchback are presented with a 100-hp gasoline 1.4 (the same engine is in the range and the new Accent) and a 1.6 VGT turbodiesel with a power of 136 hp. The petrol engine is combined with a six-speed manual or automatic transmission, the diesel works in tandem with the MCP or a seven-speed automatic with a double clutch.
The price of the four-door Accent 2018 starts from a mark of 11 590 000 won. The hatchback will cost a minimum of 14,220,000 won.
Accent sales in Korea are falling: in 2017 in this country, 7,493 such cars were sold – by 39.7% less than a year earlier. Apparently, the model of new generation in the home market will not appear in the near future. It is not excluded that Accent will completely disappear from the brand line in Korea.
Note that the five-door Accent of the new generation is presented only in Canada, in other countries only a four-door sedan is sold.
