2020 Hyundai Accent/Verna makes its debut in China
MANILA: Slowly and steadily, Hyundai is revising its global portfolio to offer both better products and entice new customers. The Hyundai Accent/Verna was one model that was due for an update from quite some time now. And, the South Korean auto giant has finally pulled the wraps off the newest iteration of the sub-compact sedan. Taking inspiration from its elder siblings like the Sonata and Elantra, the China-spec 2020 Hyundai Accent/Verna flaunts a completely new look that probably makes it look like a new model altogether instead of a facelift.
Starting with the front end of the sub-compact sedan, it is much edgy and sharper than before. The multi-slat hexagonal front grille is flanked by a pair of large upswept headlamps, and the air-vents sport a triangular design with an L-shaped horizontal trim. Speaking of the side profile of the 2020 Hyundai Verna/Accent, we see bold shoulder line blacked-out A-, B-, and C-pillars. Besides, the alloys wheel get a unique and dual-tone appearance.
A shark fin antenna completes the side profile providing the sedan with a true to 2019 look. Similar to the front fascia, Hyundai has worked on the rear end of the sedan just as much. There are wrap-around taillamps with a thin strip joining the two ends. Finally, a silver-coloured trim at the bottom of the rear bumper provides a contrasting and alluring look to the car.
Barring the new larger than before touchscreen infotainment system and an all-digital instrument cluster, the interior on the 2020 Hyundai Verna/Accent is pretty much the same as before.
The lower-end models, however, might continue to get the traditional analogue instrument cluster and a standard size touchscreen for the infotainment system. Hyundai Philippines launched the fifth-generation Accent in the country last December, and we shouldn't expect the automaker to bring the newest model here anytime soon.
