Following yesterday's teaser, Hyundai has issued several new renders of the next generation Elantra (Avante).

These latest digital illustrations were posted by Hyundai South Korea and show the KDM-spec Avante, but the international Elantra will be virtually the same. The most relevant picture is the one posted above as the rest are just sketches showing three- and four-door coupes featuring attractive designs, but we all know in most cases the real deal doesn't even come close to such styling exercises.

It will be interesting to see whether the sixth-gen Elantra will spawn once again a coupe version taking into account the old one sold in United States was short-lived (2012-2014) as Hyundai decided to pull the plug due to slow demand.

We will know more about the compact sedan soon as Hyundai says the all-new Elantra / Avante launch is "just around the corner." From what we heard, the US-spec model will have a 175 bhp 1.6-liter T-GDi engine working with a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox which will enable the model to return 43 mpg US (51.6 mpg UK or 5.4 liters / 100 km) on the highway.
