Hyundai has given its Accent light car a light once-over for the 2018 model year, with small styling revisions and minor changes to interior details.

Arguably little needs to be done to the ageing single-model Accent Sport range, which occupies the top spot on Australia’s light car sales chart, leading competitors like the Toyota Yaris and Mazda2 to the end of August this year and building sales compared to last year.

The most noticeable change centres on the front-end styling, with new mesh-filled grille and bumper inserts, and a dark chrome surround for the grille. Headlights have also been tweaked with a metallic silver finish replacing the previous white bezel strip.

Hyundai has been just as measured with changes inside, with a new font used on the speedo and tacho of the instrument cluster, and a “revamp of the rev-counter redline”.

The Accent Sport also now includes Apple CarPlay connectivity via the 5.0-inch touchscreen with four-speaker audio, Aux and USB inputs, and Bluetooth connectivity.

Both five-door hatch and four-door sedan variants will be available, continuing with the the Accent Sport’s previous 1.6-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine producing 103kW of power and 167Nm of torque with a choice of six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.

Other carry-over items include 16-inch alloy wheels, cloth trim, six airbags, electronic traction and stability control, front and rear power windows, manual air conditioning, height adjustable driver’s seat, and remote central locking.
