The Hyundai Accent, or Hyundai Verna (현대 베르나) in South Korea, is a subcompact car produced by Hyundai. In Australia, the first generation models carried over the Hyundai Excel name used by the Accent’s predecessor. The Accent was replaced in 2000 by the Hyundai Verna in South Korea, although most international markets retained the “Accent” name. The Hyundai Verna is marketed in the U.S. as the Hyundai Accent. The Accent is produced for the Chinese market by Beijing Hyundai Co.
