The Accent is a subcompact car manufactured by the Korean company Hyundai. The first generation debuted in 1994 and replaced its predecessor the Excel. There were numerous variations marketed worldwide, but the Accent saw particular success in Australia. Here the trim levels were Sprint and the GX (for the three-door hatchback) and the LX and GLX (4-door and 5 door hatchbacks).
Standard features include fully adjustable height and lumbar seat supports, 4 speakers (instead of the typical two) and some models featuring rear spoilers and power-assisted steering. The X3 (1.5 litre G4EK SOHC unit with 91 bhp) was very successful due to its reliability and low cost. It became the third best-selling vehicle in Australia and in just one year sold 144,000 units.
The second generation came out in 1999 with a minor facelift in 2003. Two main engine options were available, 1.3-liter and 1.5-liter, these generated less noise and lower vibration.
The third generation debuted at the New York International Auto Show in 2005 and showcased an updated exterior and larger interior. This model had 6 airbags, air conditioning, antilock brakes, 6 speakers, a CD player, power windows and remote power door locks.
The 2010 Beijing Auto Show featured the 4th generation model with trim levels available in Australia that included the Active, Elite and Premium in either 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic.
Hyundai sold the Accent globally in countries such as South Korea, North America, Russia, India, Indonesia, Mexico and China. In 2017, Hyundai made the decision to remove the Accent from the North American Market due to poor sales, but the vehicle did well in India and Russia.
