2020 Hyundai Accent: something new under the hood

For the 2020 model year, Hyundai made a few tweaks on the Accent.

Those who thought the upcoming arrival of the Hyundai Venue would threaten the subcompact Accent can swallow their words since the Canadian division has announced significant improvements for the 2020 edition of his small car.

Indeed, the 2020 Hyundai Accent is entitled to a new Smartstream G1.6 DPI engine, which includes a dual-point injection that has a direct impact on average fuel consumption.

In addition, the optional automatic gearbox is replaced by an Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT) unit, which is becoming more and more common through the group’s recent models. Note that the six-speed manual transmission remains on the program for the coming year. However, the continuously variable transmission is more economical at the pump than the traditional manual gearbox.

The Hyundai Accent averages 6.7 L / 100 km and 7.0 L / 100 km, respectively, with the IVT and the manual, compared to 7.4 L / 100 km and 7.3 L / 100 km respectively for the 2019 model-year. Fuel economy is particularly improved on the automatic option side, with the Accent going from 7.4 to 6.7 L / 100 km.

The new engine, however, loses some torque power as it develops 120 horsepower and 113 lb-ft, while the 2019 Hyundai Accent comes with 130 horsepower and 119 lb-ft of torque. This is not a dramatic decrease, especially since it brings a lot of savings when it comes time to refuel.

The new 2020 Accent livery is available now in the country’s dealerships at a starting price of $ 14,899 for the Essential livery with the manual gearbox. The Essential level (with Comfort group) is more expensive at $ 17,649, but it comes with the IVT box. Hyundai Canada also offers Preferred liveries ($ 17,849 with the manual transmission or $ 19,099 with the IVT box), while the Ultimate level is fully equipped at a price of $ 21,599 and the IVT box automatically included.
