Two new spy photos this week join an earlier shot of an unmasked 2011 Hyundai Accent (below) snapped by an enthusiast in Korea. With development apparently complete, the launch of the new model - its styling inspired by the new Sonata and the upcoming Elantra - must not be far away.
Little is known about the new Accent at this stage, but reports in the US suggest the new light sedan is built on the same platform as the i20 hatch, due for an Australian launch this year.
Power is likely to be supplied by Hyundai's new 1.6 litre in-line four-cylinder. The i20 is currently powered by engines ranging in capacity from 1.2 litres to 1.6 litres.
Whether the new Accent will make its way to Australia will likely depend on the success of the i20 hatch.
