Hyundai has finally taken the wraps off of the new Elantra’s interior. We have seen rendering and spy sports, but we haven’t seen an official picture of the vehicle. That is, until now. Hyundai has released one image of the new car’s dashboard.

Known in Korea as the Avante, the new sedan will get the same design language as the Sonata. The car is expected to go on sale in South Korea in the early Fall and we will likely have to wait a few months to get it here.

The Korean version of the car will get a 1.6-liter direct-injected Gamma-series four-cylinder motor with a new six-speed automatic transmission. Hyundai claims that the motor will be able to put out 138 horsepower, while being 10 percent more efficient than rivals, such as the Mazda 3 and Ford Focus. The North American version could get a 200 horsepower turbocharged motor.

Look for the final product to debut in late September at the Paris Motor Show, while the North American version should be here in late 2010 or early 2011. We hope that the styling stays the same because this car looks stunning.

Looks good. But the front grill made me instantly think of the general shape/design that has recently been on some recent models of Honda

I can’t believe I am actually calling a compact Hyundai athletic, but this sure is. What a gorgeous shape this car has. I’ve seen the new Sonata Coupe, Optima Coupe, Accent, and now Elantra. From the looks of things.

Simply gorgeous, and perfectly proportioned. It’s just amazing to see how far Hyundai has come.
