Yet another version of Accent! Except for the honey comb grill and chrome garnish, i cant spot any other changes. What about the price? Is it the same as that of Accent executive or lower than that?
I agree with you, this might be the last face lift for accent before its phase out.
Exactly, the Getz CRDi was then the Rocket hatch. It was one of the best hatches available in the market at that time. Except for some braking issues, it was an excellent car.
With the entry of Verna(which replaced Accent globally) into Indian markets, the CRDi version of Accent was discontinued.
It really looks like the last hurrah for the Accent. I remember the time when it was launched, it went on to do sterling duty in many a homes. Mind you, like most Hyundai's, it had its styling quirks, nor did it corner as if on rails. But it had decent ride quality and didn't crash about as much. It even went about its duties with nary a fuss. Just the regular service and that's pretty much it.
Then came all the new crop of cars and suddenly the accent looked horribly outdated. I recently had the chance to take a call-a-cab and the accent that came reminded me of all these things. For 4 people, it seemed like a fine car to be driven around in. And for once, i felt that the beige combination made the car look fresher than the dull grey that Hyundai has pushed before.
Its a gentle reminder that maybe, all that we need at times is a fuss-free automobile that can take us on our journey in a calm, unhurried manner.
In this last avtaar, i love the honey-comb grill but hate the garish fake-chrome bits
