The redesigned 2018 Hyundai Accent made its world debut at
the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto on Thursday, February 16,
In a sneak peek of the fifth generation Accent we see sleek
new design features including a cascading grill in front and large wraparound
taillights in the rear. The new model has striking LED strips in the headlights
and LED taillights. New body lines highlight the sophisticated design. While
there is no release date yet, it has been confirmed that there will be a new
hatchback style also.
No information on drivetrain or price are available yet.
However, the outgoing Accent is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder gasoline
engine which can produce 137 hp at 6,300 rpm and 123 lb-ft. of torque at 4,850
rpm. The engine is coupled with a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed
automatic transmission. The new Accent is expected to have a similar
powertrain, potentially producing even more power. The Accent outsold its two
closest rivals combined in 2016
The new Accent will certainly feature Hyundai's new
innovative technologies including the Bluelink telematic system, and industry
leading infotainment featuring Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.
We expect the 2018 Accent to include many of the features
that set Hyundai apart including inventive storage, quality materials,
ergonomic design and ride comfort. Hyundai goes above and beyond to keep
passengers and driver comfortable. Many new models include a touchscreen
infotainment center, steering wheel controls, rear air vents and storage.
Safety features include quality lighting, rear view camera and Smart Pedal.
The Hyundai Accent is sure to make an entrance at
the International Auto Show. Look for more information on pricing and
specific features soon.
