One of the most progressive carmaker on the world is Hyundai from South Korea. In own range it has few recognizable models but we strongly recommend Hyundai Accent. For whom is intended this model? It’s designed for all Hyundai lovers or some individuals who like compact four-door sedan. However, new 2018 Hyundai Accent will find path toward families, too. If you peek in the chronology at this time on the stage is fourth generation of Hyundai Accent. Almost seven years after its promotion, Korean manufacturer prepares the new generation. Furthermore, you can expect only above-mentioned version while five-door hatchback version has been canceled.
Very interesting detail is that Accent present in many countries worldwide. But first voice about news related to new iteration came from China. Public premiere for this part of the world was at Bejing Motor Show. In the next couple of paragraphs find out more about new details and what that can you expect from it.
2018 Hyundai Accent – Exterior Design
Perhaps you don’t have much information from public sources about plans for 2018 Hyundai Accent. But we know that its exterior design evolves and becomes more mature. Design language follows the main features from Elantra. The new Accent according to rumors will slightly grow in size. Sources mention exact dimensions, and they are as follows length is 172.4, width is 68 inches, height is 57.4 inches. But, it’s too early to talk about that and what will South Korean manufacturer do with their lineup. As we can see from the photos, new Accent will adopt much larger grille on the front. Also much larger headlights extend on each end of this one-chunk grille. They strech all the way above the wheel arches with turn-signal indicators. On sides there is a possibility to move from current 14-inch wheels to larger 15-inch ones.
2018 Hyundai Accent – Cabin
Of course, at this moment, there is no info about possible changes in the interior. But some rumors suggests of large infotainment screen but only on higher trim levels. Other than that, quality of materials might also be softer and more durable. Also, the multifunctional steering wheel will certainly have different layout. Since the dimensions of this sedan have grown, we can also expect roomier cabin. We forgot to mention that wheelbase has grown for 1.2 inches coming to a total of 102.3-inch long wheelbase. So expect more legroom and headroom for increased comfort for all occupants.
2018 Hyundai Accent – Engine
According to rumors, the powertrains that will propel 2018 Hyundai Accent are both naturally aspirated engines. One is 1.4-liter which produces 100 horsepower. The other one is 1.6-liter with 123 horsepower. The output of these engines for North American market are somewhat higher. Eight horsepower for the first one, and 15 horsepower for the other. But we think that this time something more powerful might come for this market. We must wait and see. As for the transmission options four-speed automatic might retire, but there is no info about the new gearboxes.
2018 Hyundai Accent – Release Date
The release date will probably be in the end of 2017. Although the price information is still not available, with or without certain upgrades, it will certainly be higher than before. But we don’t think the starting price will go over $16.000 mark.
