Global debuts are few and far between at the Canadian International AutoShow (CIAS) in Toronto, but this year Hyundai will treat visitors with the world premiere of the all-new 2018 Accent.
The subcompact segment-leading Accent did circles around its competitors in the sales department by more than doubling its closest competitors in the Toyota Yaris, Kia Rio and Nissan Versa. And now for 2018, it should only get better.
Hyundai has released two teaser images and a video that according to the South Korean brand shows off, “a fresh, confident interpretation of the brand's signature design language.” A trimmer makeup appears to be the way Hyundai is going with a slim rear bumper complemented by slim and sporty rear combination lamps. Features that will be retained are its signature cascading grille, as well as its sweeping roofline.
The 2018 Hyundai Accent will be unveiled on February 16 during the media day, and will stay on for the course of the auto show. A live broadcast of the unveiling will be aired on Hyundai's Facebook page.
