Looks Great! Wonder how big it is? With everything growing in size, it could be about the same as a 2000ish Sonata.

It's kind of funny looking. I think I like it. Those wheels are a bit plain though.

yeah i'm not sure...the new sonata is not that much bigger then the previous one. i think the wheel base is longer but the total will not be that much bigger than the HD

I think the Elantra is the best looking of the three. Maybe it's the smaller grill?

^ The proportions...

I'm not sure I like the Mazda3-esque smilie face lower grill.

The original, with a quick&dirty chop of a less happy lower grill.

if it weren't for the tail lights that wrap the whole way around to damn near the back doors I'd be in love with it. but a lot of car makers are doing this nowadays I hate it.

The Accent and Sonata show one look at the "fluidic sculpture" design and the Tuscon and Elantra show another (in my opinion). They have a kind of "stretched hexagonal trapezoidal" front. What do you think?

Yeah, I'm not sold on them either. Of course, a bit of vinyl could cover up the extra pretty easily, right?

i feel a bit indifferent towards the new elantra... the smiley face lower grille takes away the little to if any aggressiveness of the look. the headlights are ok tho and when will they finally use an exhaust that doesnt have that limp noodle look?

SuperGLS
04-29-2010, 04:40 PM
Some other colors shown here. That dark blue looks good!

http://carscoop.blogspot.com/2010/04/all-new-hyundai-elantra-avante-sedan.html

sirens, I think what you are seeing in the pictures is the tow hook, not the exhaust. It seems as if they'll keep the exhaust nearly hidden, which I agree with you, is a shame. They've done well with the exhausts on the newer Hyundais you'd think they could have a spot in the bumper for this one too.

That red one is just begging to be a 2 door version. Looks better in red, I think.

i like how the wheel arches are pushed out...almost a widebody affect. the MD will also probably be Lipless on the rear like the coupe and sonata so you should be able to go fairly aggressive on your rim choices.

slyderdai

red one is a lot nicer! the wife said ooooh what's that. I said it's the new elantra, her response, "Damn Hyundai is stepping their game up big time! I love all these new cars." I fell in love with her all over again.

The new Sonata was a big hit, im sure the 2011 elantra would do very well......
Love the inside interior as well....

it's probably already got all the necessities I'd just add an amp and a sub. I'm not hard to please as long as it doesn't sound like poop.

I was actually about to, but I think that in NA markets they'll add a nav unit, making aftermarket useless.

The article says it all... Looks great, but somehow I get the feeling that we (Europe) won't be getting it, just like the previous version.

EDIT: Just saw this posted under Style&Performance, so Mods can lock this thread (although I'm not sure why this isn't under Car News).

Thanks for the video Matrix. Now I want one even more.

When the forte came out I wished I had waited on buying the 09 Elantra, now I REALLY wish I had waited. Hopefully in a few more years I'll be able to get one to replace my 03 XD.

That is sad, why are you set on a 2007?

Gman, sell the 2009 to incubus here and buy a 2011. Win win win!

Looks good. When this model comes out I think we will see an increase in traffic on both elantra forums. :)

I wish they had some interior shots.

It'll be a while Jarrod. They haven't even been officially debuted in America yet. Likely they won't be in dealerships until November.

I think the Accent needs an attitude adjustment. All the other cars on the first page seem to smile except that one. Aside from the **** eatting grins it is a nice change to the body style. I just wonder if these have the beercan affect like the 04-06 elantras did when it came to crash testing.

cant wait for this to get here. My daughter just wrecked her van into the back of an SUV, so now I maybe looking for another new car. May pull the trigger on a sonata lease, but I would like to wait for this one.

I must say...I'm really liking Hyundai's new design theme...it stands out to me...speaks of motion (well, it should, I mean, it's Fluidic Sculpture Design, hurr)...which I love.

And the improvements in the powertrains and the like are nice, too... alas, I am only a junior in high school and won't be able to afford it...and I have an 01 ready for me, as well. Take what I can get, I suppose.

I don't think we'll see this in America until the LA Auto show at the end of November. That's kind of late for a 2011 model to debut, but I don't see where else they could throw it in. Plus that will extend the life of the HD by a couple months.

The new styling for all the cars look great. 2011 Elantra is way edgier than the current editon which is a bit bland. As much as I like the Elantra, the new Sonata really grabs my attention.

Seems to me that the newer Hyundai made-to-be-economic cars are getting the harder they're gonna be to mod. Like someone mentioned earlier, the headunit makes me want to cry. The stubby front end screams new civic compact can't-change-to-anything-aftermarket. And where am I gonna put my comp Sub's ): I think i'm just gonna make my XD2 live forever (:

i think they are all ugly. there seems to be a trend lately with cars becoming "swoopy" with round lines and crazy shaped grilles and lights. i pretty much stopped liking most new cars in '09.

thats another reason i don't like new cars. everything is so integrated you can't swap anything out.
