It’s all change at the entry level for Hyundai Australia with the i20 being phased out and replaced by an updated range of Accents.


So the Hyundai Accent adopts a two-tier model range staring with new 1.4-litre models priced from $14,990 – that’s $2,000 less than the current starting price for the 1.6-litre version.

The upscale model remains the 1.6-litre SR but it too sees price reductions of $2,000 for both manual and automatic versions.

Under the bonnet of the new entry-level Hyundai Accent is the Korean giant’s ‘Kappa’ 1.4-littre engine with maximum power of 74kW at 6,000rpm, peak torque of 133Nm at 3,500rpm and combine-cycle fuel consumption of 5.7l/100kms (6-speed manual) or 6.2l/100kms (CVT auto).


The automatic transmission is Hyundai’s first CVT.

The sporty Hyundai Accent SR retains the ‘gamma’ 1.6-litre powerplant offering 103kW of power at 6,300rpm, peak torque of 167Nm at 4,850rpm and combined-cycle fuel consumption of 6.1l/100kms(six-speed manual) or 6.6l/100kms (six-speed auto).

Even though it’s the entry grade, Hyundai Accent Active lists some comprehensive specifications such as six airbags, anti-lock brakes, stability control, traction control and a six-speaker audio system with a 5-inch touchscreen.


As well as the 1.6-litre engine, Hyundai Accent SR adds 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic projector beam headlights, fog-lights and DRLs, cruise control, rear spoiler and an upscale interior.

The full lineup is:

Hyundai Accent Sedan:

Active 1.4 6-speed manual  $14,990
Active 1.4 CVT $16,990

Hyundai Accent Hatchback:

Active 1.4 6-speed manual  $14,990
