As its Korean market debut draws nearer, Hyundai is maintaining a slow trickle of details and images for its upcoming 'MD' sedan, set to replace the Australian-delivered Elantra sometime in 2011.

Following an interior photo released earlier this month (right), and a series of on-road photos issued just this week, Hyundai has today revealed the first on-road video footage of the next-generation model.

While known as the Avante in Korea, neither that name nor Elantra is likely to stick here. Hyundai Australia is reinvigorating its line-up with new models and naming conventions and referring to the Avante as 'MD' until a new name is determined.

“The MD is another exciting model demonstrating Hyundai’s leadership in developing fuel efficient, environmentally friendly vehicles,” Oliver Mann, Hyundai Motor Company Australia's Director of Marketing said.

“We believe MD will have a considerable impact in the Australian compact-segment, and look forward to it joining Hyundai’s award-winning model range in 2011.”

The styling of the new model follows Hyundai's 'Fluidic Sculpture' design language, as spy photos published in January show.

In the Korean market, the Avante sits between the Accent and the i45 in the revitalised Hyundai line-up. It is powered by the Korean carmaker's new direct-injected 1.6 litre Gamma GDI petrol engine, producing 102kW and 166Nm of torque.

The 1.6 litre engine is paired with Hyundai's new six-speed automatic transmission - also featured in the updated Santa Fe and the Tucson-replacing ix35. Fuel consumption figures for the new model are unknown, but Hyundai claims the small sedan will be 10 percent more fuel-efficient than its rivals.

While details are limited, other features of the new car include HID headlights with LED tail-lights. Inside, heated rear seats, puddle lamps and a full-colour TFT LCD display in the instrument cluster are featured.

The new model is expected to go on sale in Korea (under the 'Avante' name) in the second half of this year. Australian specifications and pricing will be released at the car’s local launch next year.
