A few months after teasing us with the exterior of the new Hyundai Elantra – they purposely tinted out the sedan at the Busan Motor Show to keep nosy auto journalists like us from taking a peek - the Korean manufacturer recently released teaser images of the other side of the coin, that is to say the car’s interior.

Now, the image is nothing more than a conceptual rendering of the interior and, similar to how we were wowed by the Elantra’s new sleek and aggressive design, the rendering of the interior left us in the same state of mind. Wow. Not too shabby for a model that has long been used to taking on a conservative approach. That, of course, shouldn’t come as a surprise to those who heard from Hyundai that the new Elantra would be completely revamped from its predecessor. Guess they weren’t kidding on that end, huh?

In any case, expect to see the Elantra – or as it’s called in Korea, the Avant – to begin doing its dealership rounds in its homeland sometime before the year ends. Whether it hits America is still a matter to be discussed, but with reports saying that the Elantra would be built at Hyundai’s facility in Alabama, we’re keeping our hopes up that the new sedan will find its way on American soil sometime in the near future.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
