Two weeks ago, we told you about the newly arrived face-lifted Hyundai models: the Elantra, the Tucson and the Accent. Together with those cosmetically revised models was one other new offering: a diesel-powered Accent sedan. Unfortunately, while we were able to provide you with the official prices for the face-lifted models, we weren't able to do so for the diesel Accent sedan as it wasn't available yet.
Well, good news: Hyundai Asia Resources Inc. has finally shared with us the final selling price for the Accent 1.6E CRDi Diesel MT sedan, and it's P728,000. That's significantly lower than the company's asking price for the Accent CRDi Diesel MT hatchback, which is P808,000.
This new diesel Accent sedan is powered by a 1.6-liter CRDi VGT diesel engine shared with the diesel Accent hatchback, which is rated at 126hp and 260Nm. But unlike the diesel Accent hatchback, the diesel Accent sedan is only available with a six-speed manual transmission (the hatchback version is also available with a four-speed automatic gearbox).
See the full list of features below and tell us if the price is justified.
