While yesterday we showed you the first interior pictures of 7th generation Hyundai Elantra, showing digital cluster, large infotainment screen and updated driver-oriented interior design, today we want to show you more of the exterior design via this N-Line prototype that shows us a more fastback design similar to what we have seen on the Sonata, specially at the tailgate.
What we know so far?
The successor of Avante is expected to secure merchandise at the level of midsize cars through a larger body along with next-generation design that will follow what they have done with the Sonata.
The Avante follow-up extends from 4620mm in the current Avante to 4655mm like Kia’s Forte. In addition to the 1.6 smartstream gasoline, a new 1.2 Turbo GDi and 1.6 CVVD Turbo GDi engines will be available. In particular, the Avante will add a hybrid model and a high-performance N-line, that will have the mentioned 1.6 Turbo engine with the new 8-speed DCT transmission.
These are the measures of the new Elantra. 4,650mm x 1,810mm x 1,415mm with a wheelbase of 2,720mm.
The rear design will have connected tailights, but with a more regular design (on the spy pictures we can see a similar look to new Optima tailights) despite de different design of the Sonata.
Despite that looks like Hyundai is focused on SUVs, on a recent interview, Hyundai Executive said will continue launching sedans with the same formula as the new Sonata, which has turned out to be a success.
