Hyundai Accent 2018 to come in the Philippines from India?

Updated Sep 29, 2020 | Same topic: Automotive Industry Updates

Why haven't we seen the all-new Hyundai Accent 2018 in our country?

2018 seems to be a year of Hyundai in the Philippine market. Series of all-new models have been launched this year, including the hybrid Ioniq, Veloster, Santa Fe and the Kona. However, we still haven’t seen any clues of the all-new Philippine-market Hyundai Accent.

In fact, the new Accent was premiered in February 2017 and it has already been available in showrooms in the India, China, Canada, Russia and the US. The Accent undoubtedly deserves a slot in the list of most expected cars to hit our shores in 2018.

So what is the reason behind the delay of the Accent's arrival in ASEAN markets, particularly in the Philippines?

Up to now, the 2018 Accent’s arrival in the Philippines is still a glimmer of hope. Some rumors suggested that the all-new Hyundai Accent may be in an attendance in our country next year and it may be delivered from India.

The latest car news has yet to revealed any hints of the Korean car manufacturer's confirmation about this news but it doesn’t deny anything either.

Speaking of the heated-up Hyundai Accent, it is one of the top-selling models of Hyundai Philippines' local lineup. There is also a lengthy list of all-new rivals to jump into the B-segment sedan market. These can be a convincing reason for the all-new Hyundai Accent 2018 to make its debut in the Philippines sooner, rather than later.
