2012 Hyundai Accent


This is the Canadian model, but the US version should be pretty much the same.
We will also be getting a sedan.

The engine is the 1.6 Liter with 138hp. With the choice of a 6 speed manual or Auto.

  1. This according to Hyundai will "Kick Fiesta's Butt"

    Yes. If it it can come in at 11-12k, it has a chance. Maybe not blow out the Fiesta, but probably outsell it.

    That said… I think the Fiesta is still better then this and the Chevy Sonic in driving dynamics. But the Sonic comes with more standard hp… base. Hopefully the Ecoboost will not carry a huge premium over the base model (which is already slightly overpriced).

  2. They still haven't figured out the grille: the oval-ish upper "smile" doesn't mix well with the tentative hexagonal motif.

    The rest of the exterior styling looks great

  3. Nor much different from the previous model. Just added a couple of dramatic lines along the side.
    I would have expected more as the Sonata is very impressive.

  4. this is the bad front end design, the other one is more upscale..and i'm agree with you anonymous:

    ''the oval-ish upper "smile" doesn't mix well with the tentative hexagonal motif''

  5. Looking good so far… It appears that the only truly 'questionable' design in Hyundai's future is the Veloster.

  6. I don't see this kicking the Fiesta's butt. Not even close. But it's perfectly fine, and I'm sure it'll sell well.
