Car shoppers looking for a light-car offering from Hyundai will now have just one variant (in either sedan or hatch iterations) to choose from.
The consolidated line-up now contains just a single model, the Accent Sport, ditching the SR and Active badges from the range.
Both sedan and hatch Accent Sport will be powered by the 1.6-litre four cylinder engine from the now defunct SR, replacing the 1.4-litre unit from the previous entry-level Accent Active.
That 1.6 makes 103kW and 167Nm, sending power to the front wheels via either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic – casting the previously optional CVT transmission to the wayside.
The Accent Sport now comes standard with 16-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, and a sports steering wheel, but only increases in list price by $500.
The Accent Sport costs $15,490 with a manual, or $17,490 with an automatic gearbox, regardless of bodystyle.
“Accent has been an award winner and strong seller for us in the Australian light-car market, and it now offers greater appeal than ever before,” Hyundai Motor Company Australia Chief Operating Officer, Scott Grant said.
The Accent Sport also features 6 airbags, ESC, ABS, a 5-inch touchscreen with Apple Car Play compatibility, Bluetooth connectivity, and power windows.
Hyundai offers a 5-year unlimited kilometre warranty with all of its cars, along with a complimentary roadside assist for the first 12 months, and a complimentary first service.
When servicing with Hyundai, owners also receive a 5 year SatNav update plan (10 for i30 owners), and a roadside support plan for up to 10 years.
