Hyundai Accent Executive in India was recently given a fresh lease of life when Hyundai Motors decided to actually provide a facelift for this car. Well, only the face was lifted and made upto the new “Fluidic Design” concept which is running through Hyundai Motors’ blood now. This in itself has regenerated the public interest in this car and Hyundai Motors claim to have received fresh bookings of approximately 1200 cars within 2 months. That’s a good thing for a sedan which has completed 11 years of its life without much upgrade and is still instantly recognizable as a Hyundai Accent. The other car which is priced similar and infact a bit lower than the Hyundai Accent Executive is the . This car is the chopped boot version of the regular Indigo however it sells in far greater numbers than the older Indigo. So obviously, if they clash in the same price bracket, a comparison is but evident. Since the Accent is available only in a petrol variant, we pitted the Hyundai Accent Executive with the petrol variant of the Tata Indigo E-cs in India. Looks The Hyundai Accent Executive in India gets the familiar “Fluidic Design” language which the other Hyundai cars are meekly following. Long gone is the days of copying other manufacturers and Hyundai Motors have actually come up with a design language of their own. However many Indiandrives staffers felt that the new Accent is infact an uglier looking thing than the decent looking earlier model. Thankfully enough, the changes are only in the front and no all new design has been carried forward. The grille gets a chrome garnish similar to what Tata used to do in its Telco days. The fog lamps are a happy feature and a bit away from the run of the mill stuff. The sides get black plastic moldings. The chrome theme is carried over to the number plate as well. On the rear, there are the clear lens tail lamps which have been carried over from the previous version of the Accent. As for the , it gets a sharper nose than the earlier one and it doesn’t seem like a Manza variant and carries on an identity of its own. The same chromed grille along with the Tata logo and the clear lens head lamps lend it a good character show. The ORVMs get shiny chrome inserts in them which look classy. There are alloy wheels on offer as well. The chopped boot look of the earlier CS has been replaced with a slightly bigger one. Both the cars have a similar look for the tail pipe. The Hyundai Accent feels bigger than what the Tata Indigo E-cs in India is however the E-cs carries forward a new design them whereas the Hyundai still feels dated. But as they say, don’t go by the looks is proved when most of the Indiandrives staffers flocked to the Accent rather than the Indigo E-cs.
