2011 Hyundai Elantra: Photo Gallery of U.S. Spec Model

Hyundai has let out a comprehensive photo gallery of the North American version of the new Elantra sedan in advance of the sedan's debut at this week's Los Angeles Auto Show. As anticipated, aside from some barely visible alterations here and there including the modified digital display in the instrument panel and tail light crystals, there are no other styling changes over the South Korean market model that was introduced locally in July.
However, unlike its KDM counterpart that's powered by a 140HP 1.6-liter unit with direct-injection, the U.S-spec model gets a larger displacement 1.8-liter gasoline unit with conventional port fuel injection rated at 148-horsepower and 131 lb-ft of torque. Hyundai estimates that the U.S. model will return a highway efficiency of around 40mpg.
We'll have more on the new Elantra from the LA Show floor, but for now, follow the jump to check out our high-resolution photo gallery.
