Hyundai Accent and Veloster N to be Discontinued for 2023  

Hyundai is shuffling its lineup for 2023, discontinuing the Accent and Veloster N. The Accent has been in production since 1990, but a new subcompact crossover will replace it. Likewise, the Veloster N, which was only introduced last year, is being discontinued due to low sales.

The End of the Hyundai Accent and Veloster N

The small car segment lost the Accent and Veloster N. The Accent was one of the last remaining affordable cars on the market.

Its discontinuation will leave even fewer affordable options for buyers. The decision to end the Accent and Veloster signifies that Hyundai is betting big on SUVs, as the company is planning to launch a larger SUV called the Palisade later this year.

The small car segment has declined for years as buyers have shifted towards larger vehicles. However, the demise of Accent and Veloster could hasten the segment's decline. In addition, buyers may be less likely to consider a small car if no affordable options are available.

The end of production for the Veloster N in July is less surprising. The model needs to sell better, and the company focuses on more popular models.

Veloster N performance treatment is now available in the Kona N small crossover and Elantra N compact sedan. The Veloster N features a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. It also has a six-speed manual transmission, sport-tuned suspension, and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Hyundai will discontinue production of everything but its performance variant of the asymmetrical hatchback for 2022. The model, which features a rear third door on the passenger side but none on the driver side, has been losing ground to higher-riding crossovers.

The Veloster N almost won Motor Authority's Best Car To Buy 2020 award, if not for the Porsche 911. But don't take our word for it. They said the Veloster N is a fantastic car that checks all the right boxes. It's fast, handles well, looks great, and is comfortable for everyday use.
