Hyundai is working on a brand new version of its Elantra sedan that’s due to go on sale later this year as a 2011 model. These latest spy shots reveal a lot of the details surrounding the new sedan, including its overall shape and proportions which appear similar to that of the recently revealed 2011 Hyundai Sonata but on a smaller scale.
Key details include a sloping, coupe-like profile, tapered back headlights and a square rump. Prototypes of the car have been spotted testing in both South Korea and the U.S., often alongside rival models like the Honda Civic and Kia Forte.
Not much else is known about the upcoming 2011 Hyundai Elantra, although it’s thought the car’s wheelbase will be slightly longer than the current model. Power is expected to come from Hyundai’s latest 2.4-liter direct-injection four-cylinder engine matched to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Follow the jump to see the spy shots in full detail.
