Hyundai is trying to revive Accent model. I feel it wud be phased out soon once other models of Hyundai will come.

They are trying hard to boost the Verna Petrol sales I guess. Nothing particularly wrong with the vehicle - just that the Verna diesel brethren are stonkers, in comparison. I wonder, though, why the Accent CNG vehicles are available only in a few cities?

Accent at that price is a steal for those who want quality & comfort along with reliable service.

Perhaps, its the last breath of fresh air for Accent.

Could be because CNG itself is available only in few cities.

Is there any reference, the Hyundai Accent website still does not show this.

That definitely makes a sweet deal even sweeter! A sedan like the Accent at less than 5.5L OTR is surely a great buy. Any idea when (and by which car) will the Accent be replaced/phased out?

Indeed a good news.
I was also wondering (Infact decided not to buy Accent since there were talks of phasing out it) when they will be actually phasing out this Accent. But since we have Dzeire and Indigo-CS, I am sure Hyundai will not be a phasing out this model soon.

When I was buying my verna, the limited edition diesel was also available in maroon colour across 2-3 dealerships..

This came with leather seats (faux ofcourse), sunroof and rear spoiler!

In that case why would they not offer it in Mumbai? Any take on the reasoning behind it?
