HYUNDAI has revised its segment-leading Accent light car range, dropping base-level variants powered by the 1.4-litre Kappa engine and introducing the new Sport variant, which supersedes the previously range-topping SR.

The South Korean car-maker will offer the single-variant Accent Sport in sedan and hatchback guise, which will be powered exclusively by the 103kW/167Nm 1.6-litre Gamma engine from the SR, paired to six-speed manual or automatic transmission.

Pricing will now start from $15,490 before on-roads for the three-pedal version in both five- and four-door guise – a $500 increase over the previous entry-level Active, but $1500 more affordable than the manual SR.

Automatic versions will cost an additional $2000 on both body styles, while the optional continuously-variable transmission (CVT) from the Active has also been deleted.

Standard equipment on the new Sport includes 16-inch alloy wheels from the SR, cruise control, premium sports steering wheel with mounted controls, premium gear knob, 5.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay compatibility and Bluetooth.

Safety equipment includes six airbags, electronic stability control, traction control, ABS brakes, electronic brake-force distribution, brake assist and vehicle stability management.

It is differentiated from the outside by a ‘Sport’ badge at the rear.

Hyundai Motor Company Australia chief operating officer Scott Grant said the Accent represented even better value than the previous line-up.

“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,” he said.

The Accent comes with Hyundai’s lifetime service plan, with four of the first five services capped at $245 and the last capped at $345. Recommended intervals are 12 months or 15,000km, whichever comes first.

In the first five months of 2017, Hyundai has sold 6349 examples of the Accent, making it the best-selling light car on the market, ahead of the Mazda2 with 2080 sales, the Toyota Yaris (4815), Honda Jazz (2895) and Volkswagen Polo (2704).

It also finished 2016 as the best-selling light car with 18,703 sales, again ahead of the Mazda2 (13,639) and Yaris (12,158).
