Hyundai's four-vehicle line-up in 1998 provides an affordable entry point for drivers to new car ownership. The 1998 Hyundai Accent undergoes a minor styling revision reflected in an altered front and rear bumper appearance as well as new taillights. Introduced in 1997, the exciting Hyundai Tiburon compact sport coupe returns in 1998. The 1.8-liter displacement base engine has been dropped from the 1998 Tiburon line-up promoting the 140-horsepower 2.0-liter powerplant to the position as base level performance. Both the Hyundai Sonata flagship family sedan and compact Hyundai Elantra enter the 1998 model year with no significant changes.
