Johannesburg - Hyundai SA has added a third hatchback to its South African line-up, slotting the new five-door Accent hatch in between the i20 and i30 - not only in terms of price, but also when it comes to interior space.
Family resemblance to the Accent sedan is clear, with two-piece black-bezel headlights curving into the body, a slightly rounded version of Hyundai's signature hexagonal grille, sporty fog lights and body-colour door handles.
At the back a wide - and wide-opening! - hatch accesses a 370-litre cargo bay with parcel shelf and 60:40 split rear seat back for when 370 litres isn't enough.
The Accent Hatchback runs on 16” alloys shod with 195/50 radials - with a full-sized alloy spare under the floor of the boot.
