Hyundai has released the first images of the new Avante/Elantra compact sedan with the company’s new OEM aero kit and visual enhancements. The cosmetic upgrades are designed by Hyundai’s new tuning branch for the South Korean market called TUIX (coined after “Tuning is Innovation & Expression).
Several exterior upgrades are available for the Avante from Hyundai’s TUIX, including front/side/rear skirts, chrome beltline molding, rear spoiler, fuel cap, and sporty dark grey 17-inch alloy wheels. No performance upgrades are available from Hyundai at this point.
As of now, these visual upgrades will not be available for purchase in any markets other than South Korea. We will, however, stick with the adage “never say never”, and speculate that Hyundai might be eyeing the customization-happy North American market as its first overseas foray into this field.
