Hyundai released the Korean version of the Accent (RB series) on November 2010. The new model is offered with the same 1.6 liter engine and 6-speed automatic or 6-speed manual as the fifth-generation (MD) Elantra. The car reverted to the "Accent" name as used in the X3 series. The hatchback version, called Accent WIT, replaces the Getz/Click in South Korea.
In China, Beijing Hyundai released the China-exclusive model of this model under the "Verna" name on August 23, 2010.
In January 2011, the sedan had its North American debut and the hatchback had its world debut at the Montreal Auto Show.
There are two new engines matched with the new Accent including a 1.4 with 106 horsepower (79 kW), and a 1.6 with 138 hp (103 kW). Both featuring the latest technology in variable valve timing (1.4 "VVT") and direct fuel injection (1.6 "GDI").
In September 2010, Hyundai unveiled its Russian assembly line and presented the "Hyundai Solaris" a production-ready local version of the four-door fourth generation Accent. Hyundai reported that production will commence in January 2011. The Accent badge remains reserved for the second-generation Accents still produced in Taganrog on TagAZ plant. Hyundai Solaris available with 1.4 (107 hp) and 1.6 (123 hp) petrol engines, with 5-speed MT or 4-speed AT.
In May 2011, Hyundai launched the Verna in India with four engine options including 1.4 litre petrol and diesel engines as well as 1.6 litre petrol and diesel engines. The second-generation (LC) continues to be sold in India as the Hyundai Accent with the latest RB version carrying the Verna brand. At the time of launch, the new Verna RB features safety and comfort options that were previously unavailable in the Indian market at this price point including the option of 6 airbags.
The Diesel variant has attracted more attention in India because of its fuel economy - as a result the response in India was overwhelming and Hyundai could not handle all the orders. There are delays expected with 2–3 month waits in most locations and up to 5 month waits in others.
In Indonesia, Hyundai Accent was sold as Grand Avega and available with hatchback model only. The Grand Avega made its debut in Indonesia International Motor Show 2011 and Hyundai will assemble it in Indonesia. The Grand Avega equipped with one engine, 1.4 L petrol DOHC.
