Looks awesome eh? The new Accent will bow into showrooms featuring the new "fluidic sculpture" design language of the Hyundai family. Sounds like it comes with a lot of standard features that will blow the competition out of the water too! The new Accent will debut in 2011 as a 2012 model and will come in a four door sedan or five door hatch.
An all-new 1.6-litre GDI “Gamma” engine, paired with 6-speed automatic or manual transmissions will help the Accent achieve 40 mpg. This is the same engine and transmission that will be found in the Veloster.
A best in class 138 horsepower and 123 lb-ft of torque and more interior than a Honda Civic I'm sure will appeal to a lot of econo buyers that are looking to get moving a little faster than a Yaris. Speaking of the Yaris, the new Accent's frame will be 38% stiffer, so handling will be much improved and will have a non-econo feel to it. Prices should stick around the same as they are now from the 10k-14k range. Enjoy the pictures and I'll let you know more details as they come.
