The Hyundai Accent or Hyundai Verna is a subcompact car produced by Hyundai. In Australia, the first generation models carried over the Hyundai Excel name used by the Accent’s predecessor. The fifth-generation Accent has been introduced in China as Verna in late 2016. Production began in the same year with sales started around February 2017. Codenamed HCi, the Indian-market version was launched in August 2017 as the Verna. Hyundai claimed the new Verna is underpinned by the K2 platform that is more rigid than the previous-gen model’s platform, citing improvements in NVH levels, crashworthiness and overall stiffness.
