Hey guys, I guess we all know Jeremy Clarkson from Top Gear UK. Here's a review of Top Gear Pacific Rims, which includes cars from Korea and Malaysia.

The Accent inside is refer to 1.5L Diesel with 3 cylinder, which is DIFFERENT from ours which is 1.5L Petrol with 4 cylinder.

Rumours saying that the all new Hyundai Accent 2006 (Hyundai Verna) will be unveiled by end of this year. Price will be in between the current Accent and Elantra. I think it should be at least RM75K.

Review on Hyundai Verna 1.6 from http://www.aas.com.sg/features/archive/f01064.htm

January 2006

Hyundai Verna

Hyundai drops its Accent for the all-new Verna, which retains the brand's reputation for quality budget motoring...

What's New
Hyundai makes cheap cars cheerful, that much is certain and the company's been steadily working away at upping the quality, look and feel of its products. So much so that if you haven't gone near a Hyundai in recent memory, chances are you'd be happily surprised by how far they've come if you did.

The latest model to hit local showrooms is the Verna, Hyundai's replacement for the popular Accent small sedan. The Verna is a considerably larger car than the Accent, hence the rationale behind giving it a different name. Incidentally, the new car's basic mechanicals also form the underpinnings for the Kia Rio.

The two cars do manage to be quite different, though, with the Hyundai projecting a more mature, sober air than the arguably funkier Rio. Which is presumably intended. Hyundai's offerings have steadily become more European and, consequently, more premium in feel and the sober distinction works in that context.

The Verna's nose is pretty attractive, with sleek front fenders tapering towards fared-in headlamps that frame a neat oval grille. It's certainly a far cry from the slightly awkward looking Accent. The car's flanks and rear aspect are more conventional, though, and the latter view is where the car bears the most resemblance to the Rio.

The interior quality is as per all recent Hyundais, which is to say pretty much beyond reproach. The dashboard is clearly laid out and all the controls fall easily to hand. Hyundai has also covered most surfaces in textured plastics that do a pretty good job of emulating the soft-touch coating that more expensive cars sometimes come with. Interior room is pretty good, for front passengers at least. At the rear, ideally, you should carry just two people, any more would constitute a bit of a squash. Plus the centre passenger only gets a lap belt for protection.

How it Performs

The Verna you see here is the range-topping 1.6-litre automatic version. The engine boasts continuously variable valve timing, and develops 112bhp. Progress is pretty brisk, but you have to be judicious with throttle inputs, or the four-speed gearbox will protest by being less inclined to smooth-out gearchanges.

On the road, only the intrusion of a bit too much road noise, thanks to the budget tyres mars what is otherwise an impressively refined cabin. The Verna's steering is nicely weighted and surprisingly positive, which sort of makes you want to drive more enthusiastically. However, the tyres make sure that there is less grip available than enthusiasm ideally requires, and the fact that the Verna's set up a bit too softly for sporting driving, quickly dissipates the red mist.

If, in any event, things do go pear shaped, you'll be very pleased to note that the Verna comes equipped with a driver's side airbag, and an Anti-Lock braking System or ABS, which alone should seal the deal for many.
How it Stacks Up

The Verna lists at $52,000 with COE, which is a bargain. It's comfortable, well-built and looks very smart, but the best thing is the fact that the Verna comes with ABS, a feature that not many cars in this segment come with as standard.
