The One Hyundai Night is HARI’s grandest yearend gathering this 2010 as it brings together Hyundai’s family of motorists, media partners, and its 36 strong dealerships across the nation to set its two pioneering breakthroughs on an unstoppable countdown as they set off to new heights and new expectations. But more than racing for automotive supremacy, this history in the making is a realization of the Hyundai brand’s endearing passion to recreate a strong and unified fellowship driven by the values of sharing and service and a joint vision to achieve a distinctly refined and confident motoring lifestyle experience for everyone. Beyond fame and glamour, this event serves as HARI’s promise to show its endless commitment for constant change, innovation, and progress for total customer satisfaction – to open a new window for a bright and affluent future that all of us move and accelerate together.
Taking the Hyundai motoring community on a journey that characterizes a class-leading edge, HARI transforms the A. Venue into a celebration of technology, utilizing the most sophisticated audio-visual spectacle and advanced staging mechanism that call to mind Hyundai’s cutting-edge technology and its signature fluidic sculpture, Hyundai’s new design hallmark in the automotive industry. Shifting more of the spotlights onto Hyundai’s grand gathering is a fusion of classical and modern performances brought on by the powerhouse ensemble of outstanding Filipino artists now being recognized both in the local and international scenes: critically-acclaimed chamber music artist Mary Anne Espina; prima ballerina of the Philippine Ballet Theater Tiffany Mangulabnan; the country’s hottest classical crossover singer and multi-awarded soprano Fame Flores; Asia’s only harpist, singer and songwriter Noelle Cassandra; Aicelle Santos, Maricris Garcia, and Jonalyn Viray—the trio of nightingales behind La Diva; The Company; and the official dance group of UNICEF for its Millennium Development Goal project in the Philippines, Bungkos Palay.
Intensifying the prestige of the One Hyundai Night further are the guests of honor from the Embassy of the Republic of Korea, His Excellency, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Lee Hye-Min, and Hyundai Motor Company’s Senior Vice President in the Asia and Pacific Division, Mr. Young-Kil Chun.

The All-New Hyundai Accent
The newest face of Hyundai’s phenomenal compact sedan, the All-New Accent embodies the upbeat and game-changer side of Hyundai that is breaking all the monotony in driving with its high definition of action, energy, and ferocity. Powered by an all-new Gamma CVVT petrol engine, the new Accent comes with two variants – the 1.4-liter, 5-speed Manual and its 1.6-liter Automatic counterpart also known as Accent Blue.
Running along Hyundai’s “Blue Drive” advocacy, a corporate initiative which introduces new breeds of eco-friendly technologies and products to the global market, the Accent Blue comes equipped with three, neatly-packed, eco-environmental parts that altogether make up the Blue Fuel-Efficiency Package: the (1) front bumper lip and (2) rear deflector installed right below the front and rear bumpers, respectively, to allow for better aerodynamics, and the (3) Alternator Management System, which radically improves the Accent’s charging rate and longevity by ensuring the proper flow of voltage to the battery and improving the car’s recharging habits.
Now embodying a completely new bodyline, the new Accent arrives with Hyundai’s latest design philosophy, the “Fluidic Sculpture,” a new pair of eagle-eye headlights, and Hyundai’s signature hexagonal grille.
On the road, the manual Accent packs a punch of 108ps of maximum power @ 6,300rpm and 13.9kg-m of peak torque @ 5,000rpm. On the other hand, the Accent Blue roars up to 124ps of maximum power @ 6,300rpm and a twisting torque of 15.9kg-m @ 4,200rpm, without releasing much carbon emissions in the atmosphere. With these performance feats and dozens of other novel features, the All-New Accent becomes a high-definition automobile that is all set to redefine the meaning of modern driving.
Bolder and braver at Top 3, HARI, together with Hyundai’s family of motorists and network caliber of dealerships in the Philippines, is definitely set on a full-scale speed to achieving the Number 1 spot in the hearts of its most-important clientele – its customers. With more dealerships to be added in its dealer network and more top-of-the-line automobiles to be introduced in the market this 2011, truly this event is only just part of the beginning. Nonetheless, it still deserves to be called the One Hyundai Night to remember for it is when Hyundai forged two milestones together to create one unified community that shares the same passion to building a brighter and progressive future for all Filipinos.
