Default Spy Shots: 2011 Hyundai Accent caught testing near Disneyland

2011 Hyundai Accent prototype - Click either image for high-res image gallery

Typically when we show you spy shots, you're seeing photographs taken by people not directly employed by Autoblog. Today, however, is different. Yours Truly and Drew Phillips were driving back from San Diego after the Aptera state-of-the-state address. We were getting off the phone with Senior Editor Damon Lavrinc when I said, "And Drew's going to pull out his camera and look to his right." Thar she blows, a fully dressed up prototype, about to exit the freeway in heavy, mid-day Irvine traffic.

We pull up next to the car at the bottom of the off ramp. "Don't look at them!" Drew advised, wanting to wait until we had at least one clear shot until we alerted them of our true nature. Still, we were scrambling to figure out what was idling next to us. At first glance, I thought the compact, obvious B-segment car might be a Ford Fiesta sedan. But every Fiesta we've ever seen sports rear drums, not big discs like this camo'd car. Also, the side mirrors looked different. However, we could see the top of the center stack and it featured lots of sharp looking chrome bits, quite like the diminutive Ford. "It's definitely a Fiesta" I said confidently to Drew. "Look at the interior."

"Isn't that a Hyundai "H" on the steering wheel?" Drew pointed out. And so it was. Then the light turned green. We got in their rear three-quarter blind spot, and Drew's Nikon suddenly exploded in a volley of "Click-Click-Click-Click." We tailed them until the next light and then Drew leaned across me and let 'er rip. At this point, the Accent's passenger (we had already determined that this must be the new Accent) had made us. Drew jumped in the back seat and slid his lens out the window and began firing. The jig was up - but the game was on. Click through to the jump to read the rest of what happened.

I think it's the Accent - only other option is Elantra...but that's not scheduled for refresh.

If you can make out the rear badge that will give you the answer

Oh look, the Accent's interior is cooler than the Genesis Coupe's now too!

You know what...

I actually like the 4-door Accent...I would possibly even consider it. Just as a car when the GC isn't very useful...if they came out with a 5-door like the Elantra as a grocery getter or hauling small things that don't fit in the GC.

For the price, it's hard to over look when looking for a beater...you get a car that can go side by side with your GC that you never have to worry about cause it's got warranty.
