Accent Sport

20 September 2017 – Hyundai has confirmed its sporty Accent as the go-to vehicle for light car buyers by adding even more style and extra features for MY18.

Building on the strengths of the recently introduced Accent Sport model, the MY18 car broadens its appeal with a bold new front grille, new headlight bezel colour, a bright and bold exterior colour palette and a subtly updated interior.

Accent’s new look features a mesh-style upper grille with a dark chrome surround that is complimented by a matching lower grille, the two separated by the prominent bumper, the restyle enhancing the car’s bold sportiness and youthful image.

Complementing the forward changes, the white bezel strip at the upper edge of each headlight now features a metallic silver finish to give a more premium look.

Colour choices have also been revised with four new finishes - Chalk White, Lake Silver, Pulse Red and Blue Lagoon - joining Phantom Black and Sunflower on Accent’s colour palette.

Inside, the changes are subtle but effective with new fonts used for the speedometer and tachometer graphics and including a revamp of the rev-counter redline. MY18 Accent now features a four-speaker audio system with 5.0” touchscreen display, AUX and USB inputs, Bluetooth phone connectivity and music streaming and Apple CarPlay compatibility.

Combined with the powerful 103kW, 167Nm, 1.6-litre GDi ‘Gamma’ engine and 16” alloy wheels that are part of the Accent package, this latest take on the popular and versatile light car simply adds to the fun factor.

To underscore its appeal even further, the MY18 Accent is available in both four-door sedan and five-door hatchback variants and comes to market with no change to the Manufacturer’s List Price.

Commenting on the changes, Hyundai Motor Company Australia Chief Operating Officer, Scott Grant, said the Accent Sport represents outstanding value for budget-conscious new car buyers.

“Accent has never been such great value-for-money and stands as an impressive entry-point car to a great range of vehicles, all highlighted by local suspension development work enhancing ride and handling and underscored by a great five-year warranty,” he said.
