I agree with shravan, i prefer the current accent thats sold in India. and what were those guys thinking? those headlamps bare a strong resemblance to the headlamps on the hyundai coupe. Could they be the exact same lights? some cost saving??

Just new head lights and a new grille. Thats all isn't it?
I never liked even the current Accent's looks and this one is even worse!

so, Hyundai is moving its design back in time! And I thought they wanted to get away from the 'typical korean' designs....

While the rear is acceptable, that front grill and those amber indicators are pure 1980's. Maybe Hyundai is going retro on us?

They have made a ugly looking car much more uglier.

I prefer the front rather than the back. From the pics the 4 door version looks much larger than the 2 door version.

Considering that India is so much of an important market for Hyundai (out of most international players), I am pretty certain that they would do some good clinic'ing before launching a weird front like this Accents here.

hey guyz,

news from an insider(very reliable) is that the new accent will be here in '05. and more news is that the elantra will be launched in a 5 door variant (like the viva).
