Four new paint finishes have been added - Chalk White, Lake Silver, Pulse Red and Blue Lagoon - joining Phantom Black and Sunflower on Accent’s colour palette.
Interior revisions are equally subtle with new fonts in the speedometer and tachometer graphics and new-look rev-counter redline.
The MY18 Accent now features a four-speaker audio system with 5.0-inch touchscreen display, AUX and USB inputs, Bluetooth phone connectivity and music streaming, and Apple CarPlay compatibility.
The Hyundai Accent Sport hatch and sedan models are each powered by a 103kW/167Nm, 1.6-litre GDi ‘Gamma’ petrol engine, coupled with a choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmissions, and roll on 16-inch alloy wheels.
Hatch and sedan prices are the same with the manual costing $15,490 and the autos attracting a premium of $2000, which takes the kick-off price to $17,490 before on-road costs.
The Hyundai Accent is on offer with a five-year unlimited warranty and 12-month/15,000km service intervals.
