Thanks to a post on GenCoupe.com we now have several shots of the next-generation Hyundai Accent. We’ve seen a photo of a similar looking vehicle before and believed it to be the next-gen Elantra, but now there’s proof that it is in fact the sub-compact Accent. The proof comes from a shot of the rear bumper, which not-so-clearly shows that the car is a Verna – which is what the Accent is marketed as in Hyundai’s home-market of South Korea.
We have to say, we’re impressive with the look of this new Accent and it’s been a long time coming with the current model having languished far too long on the market. In many ways the Accent started the modern sub-compact trend, but has since been surpassed by almost everything else on the market. And the sub-compact segment is just starting to heat up with the Fiesta and Mazda2 set to hit dealerships this year, while Chevy’s new Aveo is also due out soon.
Over the next 24 months Hyundai is set to deliver the new Accent to market, as well as an all-new Elantra, Santa Fe and a new sporty coupe.
