Hyundai Solaris is no longer produced in Russia, but the stamping production is working – the bodies are delivered to Kazakhstan. Hyundai Accent is assembled from them, which … is then imported into Russia. Such confusing logistics inevitably affects the price: if about 1.3 million rubles are asked for Accent in Kazakhstanthen the same car in Russia costs 1.6-1.9 million rubles.
So far, production of one version of the Accent has been resumed in Kazakhstan. With a 1.6-liter engine (123 hp), a 6-speed automatic, two airbags, air conditioning, heated front seats. But soon they promise to expand the range: a version with a 1.4 engine with a capacity of 100 hp will appear, as well as with a manual transmission.
Will the Accent be as big a hit as Solaris was? With a relatively low price and the presence of a full-fledged “machine”, this may well happen.
