Despite being released a couple of months ago, the 2018 Hyundai Accent Sport has already received an upgrade for the new model year.

Limited largely to cosmetic and trim updates, the updated single-variant range now gets a revised front grille, tweaked headlight bezels, and subtle changes to the cabin.

Up front there’s a new mesh-look front grille and lower intake, accented by dark chrome highlights for the former. There’s also a new metallic bezel strip at the upper edge of headlight, which the company says gives a more “premium look”.

Four new exterior paints complete the exterior revisions – with Chalk White, Lake Silver, Pulse Red and Blue Lagoon joining Phantom Black and Sunflower. Metallic and mica finishes command an additional $495.

Meanwhile, the interior gets new fonts for the speedo and tacho dials, along with a revised rev-counter redline graphic.

Under the bonnet is the same 103kW/167Nm 1.6-litre GDi ‘Gamma’ petrol engine.

The MY18 Accent Sport is offered in both hatchback and sedan body styles, and also provide the choice of a six-speed manual ($15,490) or six-speed automatic transmissions ($17,490).
