Hyundai Launches LPG Version of Accent

By Motortrend India Staff   |   21 May,2009

The Korean car manufacturer added another variant to its popular Accent model. Currently, the Accent Sedan is available in petrol, diesel, and CNG versions.

Christened as 'Accent eco', the sedan is equipped with bi-fuel capability and comes at a price tag of Rs 5,33,390 ex-showroom in Delhi, which means it is nearly Rs 35,000 costlier than the petrol variant.

The Accent eco is powered by a 1.5-litre engine and a 5-speed manual gearbox. With separate Petrol (45 Litre) and LPG (27.2 litre) fuel tanks, buyers have an option to change from LPG to petrol mode and vice versa. The LPG tank in the Accent eco has a special ‘Toroidal’ design that allows intelligent use of space and makes for a larger luggage room for buyers.

According to H.S. Lheem (Managing Director), “The Accent has always been a very strong product in its segment. Earlier, we had introduced it with a CNG kit and our customers found it to be a really attractive proposition, as it offers everything one looks for in this class of cars. The LPG version will only add to the Accent’s appeal, as it will not only be economical to run and maintain but also eco-friendly. From our end, we have ensured that Accent LPG meets all the safety standards as our customers need to be assured of the safety and reliability of our products that we offer to them.”

The factory-fitted LPG kit with two-year’s manufacturer’s warranty is approved and certified by the Department of Explosives (DOE) and Automotive Research Authority of India (ARAI). ARAI is India’s premier automobile testing and certifying authority.
