Hyundai unveils new Avante

Hyundai has unveiled the 2011 Elantra also known as Avante in some markets at the Busan Motor Show in South Korea.The new Avante encompasses Hyundai’s latest ambitions, featuring the best styling and performance in its class.

With sportier and even more elegant lines than its predecessor, the new Avante badged as Elantra in markets outside Korea – continues Hyundai’s ‘fluidic sculpture’ design philosophy.

Hyundai has applied its latest 1.6L Gamma Gasoline Direct Injection engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission to the front-wheel drive compact, the first time GDI and six-speed automatic have been featured on a compact sedan in Korea. The new Avante delivers a peak output of 140ps and maximum torque of 17.0kg·m. It is also about 10 percent more fuel efficient than its closest competitors, thanks to GDI, the six speed automatic and other fuel economy enhancements.

The new Avante will delight and surprise with a raft of other advanced features not found on other compacts, including HID (High Intensity Discharge) headlamps, LED combination lamps in the rear, heated rear seats, puddle lamps and a colour TFT LCD information display nestled in the gauge cluster.
