Aston Martin hypercar makes global debut at CIAS

Most of the cars "debuting" at CIAS have been seen somewhere before. The majority of those 41 cars have been shown off at car shows in Japan, Europe or elsewhere. However, in addition to the latest from Aston Martin, CIAS will host the global reveal of a vehicle you're more likely to see come into the shop over the next year or two: the 2018 Hyundai Accent.

“We are excited to have Hyundai use Toronto as the platform to release the newest version of the Accent to the world,” said Jason Campbell, General Manager of the AutoShow in a press release. “As a global-minded city and the fourth-largest consumer market in North America, we believe we offer a great launch pad to an internationally connected audience.”

The new car features the usual cascading grille, a visual signature that is integral to Hyundai Motor’s identity. It also hints at a slim and modern rear bumper, a sweeping roofline, and a sharp character line running the length of the car. You can check out a teaser video in the player below.
