If there is one automaker that has been keeping busy in order to revamp its whole lineup, it has to be Hyundai. After the Genesis, Genesis Coupe, Sonata and the new Accent – Hyundai today unveiled the new Elantra at the 2010 Busan Motor Show in Korea.

“The new Avante encompasses Hyundai’s latest ambitions, featuring the best styling and performance in its class,” Steve S. Yang, President & CEO of Hyundai’s Global Business Division, said at the Busan Exhibition and Convention Center (BEXCO) today. “We’re confident that it will once again redefine the compact segment worldwide.”

Besides a sleek new look (courtesy of Audi’s ex head of design), the new 2011 Elantra will get Hyundai’s new 1.6L Gamma GDI engine that makes 160-hp and features fuel-saving technologies like Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing and Variable Induction System. The engine will be mated to a new 6-speed automatic.

Our opinion? It seems Hyundai may finally have a winner to compete strong against the Honda Civic, Nissan Sentra, Ford Focus, Chevrolet Cruze and Toyota Corolla.
