Looks Like The New Hyundai Accent Will Finally Ditch Its Dreary Design

Video

Will the new Hyundai Accent actually look attractive now?

Normally, the announcement of a new Hyundai Accent isn’t worth getting excited about. After all, it’s often considered to be one of the dreariest cars on sale today. If one was to drive past, chances are you wouldn’t notice it. Judging from a new teaser trailer, that could soon change with the 2018 Hyundai Accent, due to make its debut next week at the 2017 Canadian International Auto Show. The overhauled Accent looks to have taken its design cues from its bigger brother, the Elantra - incidentally, the new GT model was also far better-looking than we first imagined.

Shown in a teaser trailer ahead of its reveal, new style changes taken from the Elantra include a new larger front grille, and the Accent will also adopt new headlights with LED daytime running lights and new taillights. Hyundai describe the Accent as an “all-new” model, so it’s likely to be larger than the outgoing model.

Details haven’t been disclosed about the US model yet, but don’t be surprised if it retains the same 1.6-liter engine as the current model, which produces 137 horsepower and 123 lb-ft of torque with a choice of a standard six-speed manual gearbox or an optional six-speed automatic transmission. Currently, the Accent sedan sells between $14,745 and $17,495, so don’t expect the new model to drastically differ. All will be revealed on February 16th when the 2017 Canadian International Auto Show kicks off.
