RB Hyundai Accent
1 Aug 2015
Hyundai shook up the Accent light sedan and hatchback line-up to help cover for the demise of the Indian-built i20 in this market.
The company slipped its 1.4-litre Kappa engine into the Accent Active sedan and hatchback to create a new entry variant at the cheaper price point – cheaper even than the most affordable i20 that until then kicked off the range at $15,590.
A switch to the 74kW 1.4-litre engine meant Hyundai had been able to slash Accent Active prices by $2000, from $16,990 to $14,990, for the six-speed manual in both hatch and sedan guises.
