Hyundai Avante / Elantra 2011 Korea Video & Photos

This week the new Hyundai Avante will be on sale in South Korea. Due to the Avante 2011′s launch. Hyundai has release some photo and more details on the specs.


In South Korea, the Hyundai Avante is sold 14,900,000 Won to 19,500,000 Won ( in South Korea’s Currency) which in our means are RM40,111.247 to RM52,494.585. While this does not give you a clue how much but it will be sold here, this gives you an idea how much tax will occur from this price when this Avante arrives on our shores.

The people in South Korea manage to capture this video and we thought we share it with you. The all-new Hyundai Avante is powered by a new 1.6 Liter Gamma GDI (Gasoline Direct Injection) engine which produces 140hp at 6300 rpm. That is the similiar numbers coming out from the Honda Civic 1.8L engine, that’s a good one to shout about. There will be an option in South Korea for a 6 speed manual gearbox or 6 speed automatic gearbox.


Others features depending on the variant of Hyundai Avante 2011 will include Smart Parking Assist System (SPAS) a parking assist system when the driver wants to park the Avante between two other car by automatically maneuver the steering, other features are like the HID( High Intensity Discharge) headlights ,LED rearlights – which i do hope these will be  equipped on our Avante 2011 when Sime-Darby brings it in.


The Above spec sheet shows the comparison of the current Avante(Right) and the all-new Avante (Left). There will be a more powerful 2.0L version of Hyundai Avante 2011 rumoured to launch in the US. We hope Sime Darby will bring the all-new Hyundai Avante 2011 at a competitive price to take on the Naza Kia Forte.

Hyundai Avante / Elantra 2011 Interior with Car Video

The next generation of Hyundai Elantra or in our case Hyundai Avante, was reveal few months ago in South Korea’s Busan Motor Show as we reported earlier. Since then, more and more details has surfaced in the Web. Earlier this week the first official interior shot was leaked. If you’ve been following our earlier review on the new Hyundai Sonata, you will notice that the current design approach by Hyundai for their vehicles.


While the Hyundai Sonata targets a more executive/business class buyers, the Hyundai Avante 2011 targets the younger generation thus, the design and curves are more daring. The center console curves with shapes of the “fluidic sculpture” concept from the automaker. As understand with complexity of curves and design higher cost will occur, we hope Hyundai does not sacrifice the quality of material used in the interior of the upcoming Avante as we notice in the Hyundai Sonata 2011.


Also, a video of Hyundai Avante  in action was recorded and posted online. The Hyundai Avante was spotted doing some parking practice (not sure if they are testing their reverse camera and  etc). From the video we can see the Hyundai Avante has grown in size and more aerodynamically looking, again following their “fluidic” design cues.

In our opinion, the Hyundai Avante looks better than it’s elder brother – Hyundai Sonata. With the new Hyundai 1.6 liter produces a 138hp, this could mean that it will give it’s Korean cousin – Kia Forte and the Japanese rivals such as Honda Civic, Mazda 3 Sport, Toyota Corolla Altis some tough competition. The current Hyundai Avante 2.0L is selling for RM95,301.80 without insurance.  Following an increase of the Hyundai Sonata, with a similar spec ( meaning a new 2.0L Avante) we would expect an increase of the price.
