And will sell more than accord too, since there are not many admirers of Honda accods looks. I hope Honda comes out with a new design soon. Already the Superb is leading the segment. Wth new arrivals in this segment th accord sales may get dented.

My reference is in the view of th last mont sales in whch superb overtook the accords sales. I agree accords leads this segment but lately with more number of superb getting sold, i dont think it is jutified to call accord the segment leader.

Finally, Hyundai Motors has unvieled the all new Avante a.k.a Elantra! Full Press Release + Pictures Below:

----
World-premier of new Avante compact, Hyundai's global best-seller
Featuring 1.6L Gamma GDI engine, 6-speed automatic
Hyundai Motor Co. had its world-premier of the all-new Avante compact sedan, the company's best-selling model worldwide, at the Busan International Motor Show 2010 today.

"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."

With sportier and even more elegant lines than its predecessor, the new Avante ? badged as Elantra in markets outside Korea - continues Hyundai's ‘fluidic sculpture' design philosophy. Hyundai has applied its latest 1.6L Gamma Gasoline Direct Injection engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission to the front-wheel drive compact, the first time GDI and six-speed automatic have been featured on a compact sedan in Korea. The new Avante delivers a peak output of 140ps and maximum torque of 17.0kg·m. It is also about 10 percent more fuel efficient than its closest competitors, thanks to GDI, the six speed automatic and other fuel economy enhancements.

The new Avante will delight and surprise with a raft of other advanced features not found on other compacts, including HID (High Intensity Discharge) headlamps, LED combination lamps in the rear, heated rear seats, puddle lamps and a color TFT LCD information display nestled in the gauge cluster.Under the Avante/Elantra badge, Hyundai has sold over 6 million units worldwide since the car's launch in 1990. Hyundai will begin sales of the all-new Avante in the second half of 2010 in Korea.

At a separate commercial vehicle booth, Hyundai displayed a hydrogen fuel-cell electric bus and a Universe Limousine luxury coach, among other displays.

Hyundai's New 1.6L Gamma GDI Engine
Hyundai displayed its all-new 1.6L Gamma GDI engine in Busan today, which it first showed in Beijing auto show last week. It is the smallest member of the Hyundai gasoline engine family to benefit from the application of Gasoline Direct Injection technology. With the help of GDI, this four-cylinder powermill develops 140ps, an approximately 13 percent improvement over a conventional 1.6L Gamma fed by MPI. GDI technology doesnt only boost power output: It also improves fuel economy while lowering emissions. The new Gamma also features Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing, a Variable Induction System and exotic anti-friction coatings such as CrN Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) coating and Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) coating.

Well am not sure how you are seeing the Verna Transform in this Avante! Nothing is similar infact!

The interiors are looking gorgeous but i then guess it will be pricey too!

Wow! The car looks awesome. A pricing that is lower than its rivals should help, but i seriously doubt that. Bigger Hyundai cars never stayed in the market for a long time, hope this stays.

What are the engine options apart from this 1.6 Gamma petrol?
