The compact South Korean sedan will receive a completely new design.

It is safe to say that the current 2018-2019 Hyundai Elantra model was not appreciated, so many are eager to see the next generation sedan. He was seen in July 2019 in a thick layer of camouflage, and now independent artists are trying to imagine what is hidden under the disguise of a compact sedan.

The updated model is expected to be interesting, given that Hyundai’s latest design language has done wonders for the Sonata 2020 model year, which has become perhaps one of the most stylish sedans on offer. Not necessarily Elantra, known as Avante in the homeland, should look like a miniature copy of Sonata, as the design team worked to create a clear visual identity for the seventh generation of the model.

Based on the renders presented, the dramatic changes regarding the exterior of the sedan include a “cascading” radiator grill corresponding to the headlights, while the roof line is likely to be slightly lowered to give the Elantra a smoother coupe-style profile.

The prototype seen during the tests seems a little wider than the current model, which speaks of its more spacious interior. Rendering of the rear is not available, but it is expected that there the new Elantra will receive full-width LED lights similar to the latest version of the Kia Optima / K5.

For the performance of the new items will meet the newly developed 1.2-liter gas turbo engine that uses the Avante prototype at home. According to preliminary information, it will present the motor range together with the new 1.6-liter Hyundai unit with a stepless valve (CVVD), due to which productivity will increase by 4%, efficiency by 5% and harmful emissions by 12%.

In addition, a hybrid modification and a sports version of the N-Line will appear in the lineup. “American” Elantra may appear in the model year 2022, which means the upcoming debut in the US market next year. At the same time, it is expected that Hyundai will present the production version of the next-generation Avante by the end of 2020.
