The 2015 Hyundai Accent has been refreshed and “reinvigorated” to fill the gap left in Hyundai’s light-car lineup by the outgoing Hyundai i20.

THE HYUNDAI Accent has been given a makeover and “reinvigorated” says the Korean car maker effectively replacing the Hyundai i20. Part of the reinvigoration has been to up the spec of the two variant lineup and drop the price by $2000 for both manual and CVT equipped hatchback and sedan. The $2000 price deduction extends to the Accent SR.
