With less than a week left before South Korean manufacturer releases the new Elantra (aka Avante) in its home market, a new set of photos showing the vehicle were released, this time showing the car in its natural environment: on the road.

The redesigned Elantra will be available for the 2011 model year with a 1.6l Gamma GDI four-cylinder engine, developing 140 horsepower and 133 lb-ft of torque (167 Nm). The engine is controlled via a six-speed automatic transmission, a first for a compact sedan in Korea.

Visually, the car is inspired by the new shapes of the new Accent and the redesigned Sonata.

For the interior, up until recently one of the most mysterious parts of the new Elantra, Hyundai fitted “advanced features not found on other compacts." The unusual shape of the dashboard, which seems to fall on itself in the middle, is quite an eye pleaser.

The dashboard houses tunneled speedometer and tachometer, while standard equipment includes heated rear seats, ambient lighting and a color TFT LCD information display. Other highlights include Smart Parking Assist System (SPAS), HID headlamps and LED lamps.

The model will be priced in its home market at 19,500,000 Won ($16,100).

"The new Avante encompasses Hyundai's latest ambitions, featuring the best styling and performance in its class. We're confident that it will once again redefine the compact segment worldwide,"
Steve S. Yang, Hyundai's Global Business Division said when the car was introduced.

As the release date nears, additional information about the new Elantra is expected to surface. Stay tuned for further details.
