Accent replaces i20

THE Hyundai i20 is no more, replaced by a redesigned, respecified and re-imagined Accent – as the Korean car maker continues to realign its model range.

The two-tier Accent range now starts with the revised Accent Active powered by Hyundai’s impressive multi-point injected 1.4-litre Kappa engine, generating 74kW of power and 133Nm of torque. Transmission choice is six-speed manual or new state-of-the-art CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission).

Importantly, the entry-level Accent Active’s price has been reduced to $14,990 for the manual and $16,990 for the CVT-equipped hatchback and sedan variants.

The sporty Accent SR hatch, featuring the 1.6-litre direct-injection Gamma engine (103kW/167Nm), also receives a price reduction for both the six-speed manual transmission ($16,990) and six-speed automatic ($18,990) variants.

Like all new Hyundai models, the Accent range boasts ride and handling painstakingly fine-tuned for Australian roads by Hyundai’s acclaimed chassis development team.

High levels of active and passive safety equipment – including a full suite of Electronic Stability Control (ESC) features and six airbags as standard – have helped Accent achieve a benchmark ANCAP 5-Star rating.

Similarly, benchmark comfort and entertainment features – including front and rear power windows, 5-inch touchscreen audio system, AUX/USB audio input with digital iPod compatibility and Bluetooth connectivity – are standard across the two-tier Accent range.
