Hyundai showcased the new Hyundai Elantra/Avante at the Busan International Motor Show in Korea this year. Like all other new Hyundais, the new Elantra sees the use of the company’s new “fluidic sculpture” design language. Futuristic, was my reaction.
We’re featuring here some seemingly ‘unofficial’ shots of the Elantra doing its rounds on a scenic route revealing more of the cars design lines from every angle. Along with that, a spec sheet has also been included elaborating more on what you can expect from the car.
As mentioned before, the car will feature the 1.6 GDI engine that produces 138hp and 166Nm of torque. This is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with an impressive fuel consumption figure of 6.06L/100km, while the manual gearbox returns a 5.88L/100km figure.
In terms of tech, you will get features such as Smart Parking Assist System (SPAS), HID (High Intensity Discharge) headlamps, rear LED lamps and heated rear seats. This will be housed in the new body that is 4530mm long, 1435mm high and has a width of 1,775 enjoying a long wheelbase of 2700mm.
I’m particularly pleased by the fact that the interior photo unveils that the car uses a floor-mounted accelerator pedal, which I much prefer over the conventional version!
More pictures of the car available after the jump.
