Plans have been made for the new 2024 Hyundai Accent, one of which is to offer the vehicle in sedan and hatchback configurations. The hatchback would be ready at dealerships in around 2024, most likely closing at the end of the year. If you are looking for a cheaper option, go with the hatchback. According to some sources, the Accent (both hatchback and sedan) would run on a four-cylinder unit of 1.6-liter capacity and CVT transmission. So, what’s the possibility of the upcoming Accent? Read on to find out.
The Planned Models
The sedan comes with GLS and SE for base trim levels. Both would come with a front-wheel driving system and a four-cylinder unit. The SE would have a 5-inch touchscreen display, USB connection, Bluetooth, and cloth upholstery, while the GLS would come with GPS, satellite radio, and a rear disc brake. With CVT, the car’s performance would be punchier and more effective. The Accent may be a small sedan with a well-balanced price tag. The company hasn’t provided the specs details, but modification should be expected.
In terms of a hatchback, it is one of the most popular options. Unlike the sedan, the hatchback has several trim levels. You can find hybrid hatchbacks, performance hatchbacks, and standard ones. The combination of unique features and modern style is why this hatchback is likable by commuters or those who want to have super functional (and usable vehicles. Hyundai is carefully developing and preparing the hatchback to be available later than the sedan. But again, there is no information about the details, so we need to wait for Hyundai’s official release to get confirmation.
Powertrain and Performance
The 2024 Hyundai Accent will run on the four-cylinder unit with a 1.6-liter capacity, delivering 120 ho and 113 Nm of torque. It may likely be paired with auto and manual transmission, with a fuel economy system of 36 mpg. Rumor has it that the vehicle would be offered within two trim levels, but it’s unclear what kind of trims would be provided. Those trims are said to have auto or manual transmission.
The Accent is said to come with CVT, which utilizes a chain belt – rather than a clutch. This transmission may be perfect for a commuter vehicle, not a sport ride. Aside from the engine layout, it would come with Torsion Beams, front suspension, and (rack and pinion power steering). The CVT is considered a significant improvement over the existing manual transmission. It would also offer more efficient fuel management, thanks to the improved acceleration. Hyundai is considering new tech implementation across its entire lineup so that future buyers can enjoy the future models.
Price and Release Date
If everything goes as planned, the Accent will be launched in the fall – not sure in 2023 or 2024. The vehicle would rival against Mitsubishi Mirage G4 and Nissan Versa. The starting price would be around $11,800, covering manual 6-speed transmission. The higher trims would come with automated messages. The sedan should launch within 2023’s third quarter, while the hatchback may launch, close to the end of the year.
When compared to Honda Accord and Honda Civic, the Accent may be less equipped, which is quite logical in terms of price. The Accent would be offered in Blue Admiral, White Frost Pearl, Silver Olympus, Black Absolute, and Gray Forge. We should hear further information about the 2024 Hyundai Accent once the company is ready to release the complete report.
