The 2011 Hyundai Elantra will be unveiled to the American public at the LA Auto Show, and Hyundai has released a new set of images of the US market car. Hyundai will use the Elantra nameplate for this C-segment sedan in North America, but it will be called Avante in our market. Malaysians will get to touch and feel the Avante at the KL International Motor Show (KLIMS) 2010 alongside the ix-Metro concept and the revised Santa Fe.

In the US, the Elantra will be powered by a new 1.8L non GDI engine with 148 hp and 178 Nm of torque, mated to Hyundai’s own six-speed automatic. This fresh gallery is the most flattering to the “fluidic sculpture” lines of the Elantra/Avante so far. Hyundai’s new swoopy design language is also evident in the current Tucson and Sonata, but this is the most “full flavoured” example yet.

Gallery after the jump.
