2018 Hyundai Accent: Elantra's Mini-Me Biggest To Date, Five- Door Coming In Canada Only [Video]
The new 2018 Hyundai Accent is 0.6 inches longer and 1.14 inches wider than its predecessor. This car is set to hit showroom floors in the fourth quarter in the U.S. and Canada. A five-door version of the 2018 Hyundai Accent will be available for sale only at Canadian dealerships, in early 2018, Auto Week reported. Hyundai Auto Canada Corp. CEO Don Romano said that, "The Accent five-door will be tailored specifically to the needs of Canadians.
The 2018 Hyundai Accent is coming with a 1.6-liter, four-cylinder 132-hp engine, and a six-speed transmission. The latest model has improved its fuel economy by 7 percent over its predecessor, as per the Hyundai. It is also having a backup camera and has options for a 7-inch touchscreen display with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The 2018 Hyundai Accent also has an optional autonomous emergency braking system.
In design, the 2018 Hyundai Accent is not much different than every other new Hyundai. The front end is mostly Elantra, with its hexagonal grille and thin-ish headlights. The rear end keeps the Elantra theme alive, because of its wraparound taillights and rounded-off trunk lid, according to CNET.
Inside, things are a little different in the 2018 Hyundai Accent. The infotainment system is tucked into the dashboard, as opposed to hanging out as a "floating" screen. As it's an affordable car, it has a pretty no-nonsense interior with limited contouring and only a few splashes of color. Heated front seats are also there in the car, which is a nice touch on the vehicles at this price point.
The 2018 Hyundai Accent will be available in both four-door and five-door variants, although the five-door will not make it to the US. The new 2018 sedan is set to enter the global marketplace in the third quarter of 2017. Despite its numerous improvements, the pricing of the car shouldn't increase too much from that of the current car, which starts at $15,830.
