The fourth-gen Hyundai Accent RB has been facelifted for 2015 in the US – albeit rather mildly. Slightly changed are the front grille (the horizontal bar), head and tail lamps, and new are 16-inch alloys and three body colours including Vitamin C, Pacific Blue and Misty Beige.

Inside, you’ll find a new high-contrast LCD screen for better legibility, new fabric patterns in beige, grey and black, plus an outside temperature display within the instrument panel.

Also, a Popular Equipment Package is offered on the GLS sedan, giving you an adjustable steering wheel with audio switches, cruise control, Bluetooth hands-free and a sliding armrest storage box.

Power comes from the same 138 hp/166 Nm 1.6 litre Gamma GDI four-cylinder petrol engine. Manual and auto gearboxes are available, both with six speeds. GLS sedan, GS hatch and Sport hatch (used to be called SE) variants are available.
