The "on ice" images give us a clearer indication of the car's stance and proportions which, according to the photographer, hint at a car with more legroom than the previous model. The new Elantra also features obviously shorter overhangs and a more sporty overall look. The recently-renovated Hyundai grille can also be seen, just, along with new lighting and fascias at the front and rear.
Engines for the new Elantra will likely include a 1.6-litre four-cylinder (petrol) engine, which may also be turbocharged, and a 2.4-litre direct injection (petrol) four banger. There's no word yet on a diesel offering but a 1.6-litre unit, similar to that found in the i30, is rumoured for most markets.
The 2011 Hyundai Elantra could get a market release before the end of this year as an MY11 model.
