Spied - Sassy Fluidic Hyundai Avante/Elantra spyshots flood in
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
Remember prior to the Fluidic Verna launch, there were so many spyshots of the test mules on the interweb. Let’s hope so is the fate of the new Avante. Yes, Hyundai is testing the Avante in India and you heard it here first. Now, our good friends at TeamBHP have spotted the same test mule doing its daily routine in Delhi.
If you are like me who places aesthetic value over and above everything else, you are in for a treat. The Avante is drop dead gorgeous. Sure, the new Fluidic Verna is a looker but this is on a whole new level. Hyundai’s fluidic design philosophy at its absolute best!
The Avante is Hyundai answer to the Chevrolet Cruze, Skoda Laura and Honda Civic and by the looks of it – a might smashing one. Hyundai will HAVE to plonk a diesel engine in the Avante to make sure it sends jitters down the spine of the Cruze and the Laura. They could possibly use a more powerful version of their own 1.6 engine which does duty in the Verna.
The Avante will surely turn a few heads in the C sedan segment. At the same time, Hyundai is also testing the i45 in India which means another successful contender in the D segment. This Auto Expo is sure going to be a lot fun!
