Fans of the Hyundai Accent hatchback will be pleased to find out that the five-door version of the wildly popular vehicle will be sold in Canada.
Hyundai is not offering the hatchback design south of the border but due to its popularity in the Great White North, the Accent hatchback will again be on the market in Canada for 2018.
The newly designed Accent hatchback is longer than the previous version resulting a 16 litre increase in cargo volume. The hatchback design provides even more cargo capability than the standard 4-door model.
This is the fifth generation version of the Accent and it has some nifty new designs built into the exterior features.
With new corner lights and headlights and a new Hyundai signature grille, the vehicle has an all new appeal.
Inside, the driver’s cockpit allows for easy access to all controls and accent colours that reflect the exterior paint colour add a unique flair to the interior design.
The new design also provides more space for passengers – more than you would expect in a vehicle that is considered a compact sedan.
A touchscreen is mounted on the main console and comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. Larger size screens are available depending on the trim level.
Standard this year is a convenient back-up camera so you can visually check what is behind the vehicle.
There are several driver assist functions available.
Under the hood the Accent is powered by a 1.6 L, 4-cylinder engine that is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Hyundai engineers have also taken safety into account with the new design with new side airbags and front crumple zones.
The Accent has proven to be a reliable and popular vehicle for both driving in the city as well as longer commutes.
Fans of the hatchback design will be pleased to know that Hyundai is keeping up on what their customers like and will offer the 5-door version in Canada.
