Hyundai introduces new sedan Verna at the show in Beijing, also known as Accent. The car is inspired by the lines of the Sonata sedan coupe, towards which offers smaller dimensions and a larger glass area.
With a length of 4.34 meters, will be marketed in China (since July) with 105 hp 4.1 gasoline engine and 1.6 with 120 bhp 4-speed automatic transmission, while a 5-speed manual version is reserved solely for entry. And ‘Accent logical to think that, once made in Europe and other markets will receive a wider range of engines with diesel engines and possibly a hybrid, as happened with her older sister Sonata Hybrid.
In addition and in the design, Hyundai is taking avant-garde new brand image. Hyundai‘s designers say they have tried to give him a four-door coupé-new model, which gives them a pioneer in its segment. Overall achievement is questionable, many might say that style is too heavily loaded and a model family man advantage with accents. Form seems to have been chosen to serve and safety, the new Verna / Accent, Hyundai is willing to get five stars in safety tests.
