Hyundai has revealed the Avante Sport for the South Korean market, previewing the facelifted Elantra SR Turbo for global markets.

Like the regular range, the Avante Sport gets a re-skinned body – this time wearing more sporting equipment inside and out.

Headlining features include a black sports mesh front grille, larger brakes nestled behind new 18-inch alloy wheels, a subtle body kit, chromed twin exhaust finisher, multi-link rear suspension, carbon-fibre-look interior trim, sports seats available in black or red leather, and a flat-bottom perforated leather sports steering wheel.

While not explicitly stated on the company's Korean website, the Avante Sport should carry over the updated model's new infotainment and driver-assistance systems, representing a meaningful step forward on the ageing current car.

Power still comes from a 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, making 150kW of power and 265Nm of torque, driving the front wheels through a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch transmission shared with the i30 SR and Kia Cerato/Forte GT.

The new Elantra Sport is due in North America shortly, with pricing to kick off at US$22,400 ($31,037) with a six-speed manual transmission.
