Given the fact that Hyundai accent went in for a total makeover last year, we certainly do not expect any radical changes with the 2019 Hyundai Accent. But we do expect that there would be some changes included if not for any other reason but to keep the design fresh. Either way, the news got us excited enough to start cranking the phone, hunting down any information that we would locate on the new car and its upcoming release. This is what we have managed to find so far and without much further ado, let’s get to it.
As mentioned earlier, the 2019 Hyundai Accent did undergo a major makeover where it transformed from a small sedan into a decently sized one. Given that, we are expecting just a few changes or tweaks to its exterior with a similar upgrade for the interior as well. The interesting thing is that this model has made a name for itself by bringing more comfort and tech to the subcompact segment and as a tuned up sedan, we hope that the new model continues along these lines as well. So let’s check out the exterior, shall we?
Exterior, under the hood:
The 2019 Hyundai Accent comes with mildly retuned front fascia and rear fascia, along with more chrome accents with the same grille as before. The overall design remains more or less the same, but that was to be expected. The new model comes with a revamped front end, consisting of the front bumper as well as LED headlights with cornering. What makes this new model stand out is that it comes with rounded corners and with a more aerodynamic design than the last year’s model.
The new model comes with the same trims as the last years and with nary a change. The side panels have not changed much and remain more or less the same. The specs, length all remain the same and the wheelbase has not changed either, but some of the trims do come with slightly larger wheels than usual which should provide you with better traction. The flowing lines to the side and to the rear certainly enhances the car and makes it look all the more attractive. Some of the higher trims also sport on fog lights as well as other features that differentiate them from other model types.
The 2019 Hyundai Accent comes with a slightly revamped interior; New model sports the same curvy dashboard as last year’s model with power windows, power mirrors, a heated, power steering wheel and much more. As far as seats are concerned, the new model comes with plush leather upholstery especially on the higher trims along with a large touchscreen infotainment panel which is compatible with android auto and Apple car play. This car also comes with a bevy of advanced safety features, such as emergency braking as well as a sunroof to boot.
Drivetrain, specs, launch date, price:
2019 Hyundai Accent comes with the 1.6-liter inline-4 engine which can easily make 138 hp and is available with both automatic and manual transmission. This car was designed more of a budget model with few perks so as to enable passengers to get from point A to point B. To that end, it does a great job of it and functions smoothly. The new model is expected by fall this year but this could be subject to more change as we are yet to hear the last word on this from the automaker. The pricing for the new model is expected to be around $20000.
