Several weeks ago Hyundai gave us a look at the all-new 2011 Elantra when it unveiled the new car in South Korea badges as the Avante sedan. But when it debuted at the Busan Motor Show, we only got a look at the car’s exterior. Now, for the first time, we have a single snap-shot of the Avante’s interior - and we don’t expect much to change when it arrives here.
Needless to say, we’re impressed with the design and can’t wait to feel the materials ourselves. Our first chance will likely come at the LA Auto Show later this year.
When it does debut, expect a 1.6-liter gasoline direct-injection (GDI) 4-cylinder with 138-hp and 123 ft-lbs of torque, that will rival the segment’s fuel economy leaders – if not surpass them.
