4 door saloon with CRDI power coming soon

Remember the Hyundai Accent CRDI that was sold from 2006-2009? Well, Hyundai seems to be planning to bring it back starting this January.

Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. will reportedly be importing the CRDI version of the facelifted Accent four-door sedan, alongside the facelifted versions of the Elantra, Accent and the Tucson already in dealers.

The Hyundai Accent Sedan CRDI will be getting the same 1.6-liter CRDI motor as the hatchback version, providing the small sedan with even more power and torque, as the engine makes 128 PS and 260 Newton meters of torque.

The new 4-door Accent CRDI will mark the return of the 4-door diesel car that Hyundai sold back in the late 2000's. The previous generation Accent Sedan CRDI became an unassuming sales success when fuel prices shot up a few years back.

It's still undetermined, but Hyundai will most likely be coming out at least two variants: one with a 5-speed M/T and one with a 4-speed A/T. We'll know soon if they're planning a base variant targeted at taxi fleets.
