2011 Hyundai Elantra MD (codename) spy shots
First days of 2010 bring us some nice close-up spy shots of new Hyundai Elantra MD!
Say hello to next-generation Hyundai Elantra! The Korean carmaker is shaping up its all-new family sedan that is going to feature a combination of head-turning exterior look and cutting-edge technology.
Set to go on sale in 2011, the all-new Elantra takes much of its styling inspiration from the all-new Sonata sedan, which has made its official unveiling at the L.A. Auto Show in December, and adopts many styling cues from the so-called four-door coupe segment.
The forth-coming compact sedan from Hyundai gets a sleek and really sporty side profile with short front and rear overhangs. The 2011 Hyundai Elantra is expected to feature a completely revamped front and rear fascias with redesigned Hyundai signature grille and stretched back head-lamps.
Under the skin is a fresh development of the current Elantra’s platform, so it is unlikely the new model will grow much in size. Emphasis will be put on ride and refinement, without sacrificing the sharp steering and driver appeal.
Four-cylinder engines will dominate Elantra’s engine line-up. The 1.6L gasoline engine is expected to be the entry-level engine, while a beefed-up 1.6L Turbo engine is also rumored to be in the works. Both of the engines will combine great performance with low CO2 emissions and class-leading fuel consumption.
Expect the 2011 Hyundai Elantras -MD to start hitting the U.S. streets in late 2010 or early 2011.
