In announcing additional new products for the Australian market, Korea's Hyundai Motor Company has confirmed four new models are to be released locally later this year.

Codenamed MD, the all-new Elantra is a compact sedan which completes the company’s line-up in the small segment. Following the ix35 compact SUV and i45 mid-sized sedan, Elantra is a further example of Hyundai’s signature ‘Fluidic Sculpture’ design and showcases Hyundai’s capabilities, including modern design, advanced safety technologies and outstanding quality. The new Elantra is planned to go on sale in Australia in the third quarter of 2011.

The all-new Hyundai Accent is a four-door sedan which will complement the company’s successful i20 hatch in the Light Car segment. The Accent combines sleek looks, advanced technology and safety attributes, and tops it all off with a robust, 'sporting' character. The new Accent is also planned for local introduction during the third quarter of 2011.

Launched at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month, the stylish new i40 wagon was designed and engineered in Russelsheim, Germany to meet with European tastes. The i40’s exterior stands out for its seamless form and distinctive graphic elements, while the interior design focuses on the sculptural and ergonomically optimised integration of its functions. The new i40 wagon has now been confirmed for the Australian market and will go on sale in late 2011.

Finally, the stunning and daring Veloster. Challenging conventional coupe design, Veloster brings a new design perspective, combining agility, convenience and aesthetics. The Hyundai Veloster delivers innovation with a unique third door for easy rear-seat access, a new 1.6-litre direct-injected four-cylinder engine matched to a six-speed manual or a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The new Veloster is expected to land in Australia before the end of 2011.

Pricing and specifications for the all-new Accent, Elantra, i40 and Veloster models will be available at the time of their respective launches.
