Here are some spyshots of the new Hyundai Accent undisguised. It looks like the same car as the untaped red unit we posted before, which could have been either the new Accent or new Elantra/Avante. More likely the former, as the B-segment car is the older of the two – the current MC Accent was launched back in 2005. This new set of spyshots also reveal the car’s rear end, which looks to have the “Verna” badge on the bootlid (it’s quite blur though). The Accent is called Verna in its home market as well as in Singapore.

Hyundai is moving away from dull designs, and Korean entries are becoming design leaders in their segments – the new Sonata and Tucson look so removed from their predecessors, it’s hard to believe they’re only one generation apart in the same model line. This supposed new Accent clearly takes after the Fluidic Sculpture design language from the Sonata, and looks like a downsized version of it. The long headlamps, prominent strakes and lines, they’re all here, and it looks good.

We look forward to the unveiling, possibly at the upcoming Beijing Motor Show, but for now check out the rest of the pics after the jump.
