      Yeech, this thing is...bad. Like, Mitsubishi Mirage G4 bad...
      But it's an ACCENT. And for a base, entry level point A to B, I think it looks well executed. Especially the interior. My only gripe, exterior styling sort of looks like a Nissan and that's not a cool thing.

      Didn't you have to design a B class car and present a clay model in freshman trans? Designing a good looking B class car around a real world package is probably one of the more difficult things to do.

      I never did, and I know that it's a hard class of car to design, and I don't think that this one looks good. The current Accent looks better to my eyes, and so do a few of its competitors.

      B-segment sedans are indeed a difficult class to proportion...






      The Mazda2 minus the Toyota Yaris / Scion iA front is probably best-in-class:



      If I remember right they're basically limited to 4.5metres or less due to size class in some markets (India?).

      From a proportion standpoint, the Mazda/Scion and Chevrolet Sonic did pretty well in roofline execution/stance IMHO; the Fiesta is pretty cab forward which is nice, but the light catcher fade out towards the rear fender isn't doing it any favors. When considering cost, economic factors, and FE/crash regs, it's a miracle these cars look as good a as they do.

      Ugh--you dodged a bullet in that case.


      I need to see it in person. But in photos it looks--very lazy. Sometimes you have to go a different way from a design standpoint with smaller cars. This looks like an overlay from Hyundai and it's current direction scaled down to a B class car.

      Rear end is bland compared to the current, i figured it wouldnt be as swoopy as the current ala elantra

      I need to see the hatchback before making full judgement. Look at the current-gen Accent, the hatchback is the better looking car by a mile.

      I looked at a couple Accent hatches in SE trim and they seem like pretty solid little cars that hold a great deal of real-world value. Especially if you have a couple of kids and a big dog, etc. Granted, I'm a guy that enjoys cheap cars but it seems like something that would be pretty easy to live with, and 2-3 year old low mileage examples are easy to find under 9K.

      Is it still platform mate with the Kia Rio? The upcoming Rio looks so much nicer.

      Yes ... although I like the outgoing Rio better in terms of appearance.

      I've had a couple of Accents as rental cars. In the course of this redesign, I hope they did something about the steering, because on the outgoing model, it's awful.

      Well compared to what?

      Design language typically doesnt trickle down well to basic models and its not that bad for an Accent.

      Plus the Elantra people need enough reason for Elantra.

      IMO (same class sedan vs sedan in Canada), it looks better than Toyota Yaris and Mitsubishi Mirage G4,

      I will not compare it with cars like Fit, Sonic, Versa until i see a 5 dr edition is out.

      Finally, a car Ryukien doesn't like.

      Although I'm not sure how this Accent is ugly, yet this isn't...



      I think both are awful.

      That's not always true. Kia doesn't have that issue, for instance. Neither does Mazda.

      The Hatchback version is only for Canada.

      Some makes are noting differences at the low end of the Canadian & American markets. Nissan dropped the Versa Sedan from Canada when the Micra came out. US & MX now = Versa as the entry level, with Canada the outlier. Chevy tested the attack in Canada before okaying it for the US. Now Hyundai USA dropping the Accent hatch from US but keeping it in Canada, like Kia did with the Rondo.
