Hyundai Motor Company has announced that it has received over 5,000 pre-orders for the all-new, Avante/Elantra compact sedan in South Korea.

The new Avante is feature packed with numerous standard features such as 6 airbags, rear parking sensors, heated front seats, ambient lighting, and colour TFT LCD information display. Optional items include HID headlamps w/LED tail-lamps, heated rear seats and a 10 way electrcially adjustable driver's seat.

Since its launch back in 1990, the Avante/Elantra sold in excess of 6m units worldwide. Expect to see the redesigned Avante to make its North American debut early next year.
