The new Hyundai Elantra has begun cold weather testing as these photos show. And as we can see the new generation Elantra gets a sleeker design and a coupe like roofline, almost like a smaller version of the recently revealed Hyundai Sonata.

From the looks it seems like the wheelbase has grown a little to give the passengers more leg space. There is not so much info out yet on the new Elantra but it’s expected to be powered by Hyundai´s new 2.4-litre direct injection four-cylinder engine matched to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission.

The Elantra will be out on the market as a 2011 model.
