The four-door Accent is not returning to Canada for 2020. The more popular five-door model continues to be offered, however. Hyundai has made its small car more fuel-efficient thanks to a new 1.6-litre Smartstream engine with dual-port injection (down from 130 hp to 120 hp) and the option of a new continuously variable transmission. Inside the Accent, the five-inch colour touchscreen can be replaced by a seven-inch display with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration.
