Hyundai Elantra Caught Using a New 1.2-liter Turbo Engine


Today we have received a new set of spy pictures directly from South Korea where the next-gen Hyundai’s compact sedan test mule was spotted in the wild with a surprise, the test of a new 1.2-liter Turbo engine.

Looking at the pictures, this Hyundai sedan is smaller than the Sonata, and according to our sources we could be in front of the next generation of the Elantra (Avante in South Korea).

We are sure we are in front of a Hyundai test car, due to the big hexagonal grille that follows what we have seen on the Sonata in terms of design. Despite Hyundai looks like is focused on SUVs, on a recent interview, Hyundai Executive said will continue launching sedans.

New Elantra codename “CN7” using a 1.2-liter Turbo.

What new things could this Elantra bring to the market? Will arrive with EV and Plug-in Hybrid variant?

Stay tuned for more details soon and place your bets!
