Hyundai's hot hatch heats up

2005-09-22 07:07

Hyundai gave a glimpse of its new hatchback at the Frankfurt Motor Show where the Korean carmaker showcased the Accent SR concept car.

This sizzling concept hints not only of what the Accent is to look like but also at a performance model.

The SR concept, which is 4.035 mm long, features a very sporty look. There are integrated front and rear roof spoilers with stylish deep sill side spoilers.

This car also has lowered suspension and the SR rides on 18-inch wheels.

Under the bonnet is a 2-litre turbo engine and transmission is via a 5-speed auto gearbox.

There is no indication yet what the power output of this engine is but this is a car that will compete against the likes of the Golf GTI and Astra GSI.
