It will join the Hyundai lineup in the spring of 2011.

The car comes with redesigned bumpers, grille, hood and headlights. It will be powered by Hyundai’s new 1.6-liter or 1.4-liter Gamma petrol engines.

By replacing the old Alpha engine with Gamma, the sedan promises more power and torque, as well as best-in-class fuel economy. The estimated power and torque of 1.6 Gamma are respectively 124 PS and 156 Nm, while those of 1.4 Gamma are 107 PS and 135 Nm.
