The new Elantra was announced with three engine options in Korea this month.

Hyundai unveiled the 2016 Elantra (2016 Hyundai Avante) in South Korea this month with deliveries expected to start next month. The company plans on selling 50,000 units in Korea this year, 110,000 units next year, and 590,000 units overseas next year.

The new Elantra’s body features 53 percent of Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS), and its design makes it the most aerodynamic car in its class, according to Hyundai, with a Cd of 0.27. Engineers have also taken more efforts to improve the NVH levels of the sedan, by redesigning components like the wiper blades, wheel wells and door seals.
