Once a cornerstone model for Hyundai Canada, the Accent is going away after 2020. The Korean automaker’s Canadian division confirmed that the subcompact model will not return to the lineup next year.
In 2019, Hyundai Canada axed the sedan version of the Accent, leaving only the hatchback version for our market. In another sign of how quickly fortunes have been changing for cars, particularly small ones, both variants of the model had been redesigned recently, for the 2018 model-year.
And so the Accent’s Canadian career comes to an end on its fifth generation since it was first introduced in September 1994. Since then the model has sold more than 460,000 units in Canada. For 10 years, the Accent was actually the top-selling subcompact car in the country – particularly in Quebec where it was – still is – a ubiquitous presence on roads.
