New Hyundai Accent: now with one motor, instead of 6АКП – CVT


The Chinese market was restyled Verna – under this name, they sell a model that we have known as Accent. “Cityradio” changed both outside and inside. The engine range was reduced, but added new equipment.

In the lounge there is a virtual “tidy”, and the touchscreen multimedia system is now an 8-inch instead of 7 inch from the pre-reform sedan. In addition, the touchscreen slightly dominates the front panel. Another of the new equipment – a wireless charger for your smartphone, automatic emergency braking (with the detection of pedestrians), warning about withdrawal from the occupied bandwidth and control driver fatigue.

The engine in the Verna remains one of the top 123-strong “aspirated” 1.6 dismissed. A facelifted model is available only with the same Junior motor 1.4 issuing 100 HP and 132 Nm. He combined with six-speed “mechanics”, but in place of the classic six-speed “automatic” came the CVT. By the way, CVT recently acquired and sedans Accent, American brother Verna/Solaris.
