Accent on i20 4-pot

Since it was born during Sydney’s Olympic year, the Hyundai Accent has always had a mixture of 1.5- and 1.6-litre engines. But the city hatch/sedan has now adopted the 1.4-litre four-cylinder previously used in the i20. And, in a Hyundai Australia first, it’s matched to a CVT auto. It’s led to a mild rejig of the Accent range, which also continues with a 1.6 in the lukewarm SR.
