Hyundai Elantra

Hyundai is set to add another vehicle to its list of successes: the new Elantra, which was revealed at the LA auto show this year.

Created by principal designer Cedric d'Andre, the Elantra was the last car conceived under the direction of Hyundai's former design boss, Joel Piaskowski. The new car shares the 'fluidic sculpture' design theme of its larger sibling, the Sonata and has an impressively low 0.28Cd.

Inside, the flowing, sculptural design theme is continued on the doors, the IP and the center stack. Wave-like perforations in the door panels and on the leather seats demonstrate an attention to detail that we're unused to at this level.
