21 Dec 2020  |  Hyundai Reviews
The Hyundai Avante gives those looking for an everyday sedan a stylish option both on the inside and out. Could this change the image of the Korean brands?

Review
Lined up against its rivals, the Avante is a serious Corolla challenger and almost on a par with the Mazda 3.

What I like
Longer, wider, lower and with a wheelbase extended by 20mm to 2,720mm, it is also roomier.
Bold sculptured lines across its flanks immediately set the car apart from its rivals.
Those following the car at night will notice an LED strip linking both taillamp clusters - a segment first.
The authorised agent currently has no plans to sell this car to private-hire firms.
The Avante is built on a new platform and lighter than its key rivals.
It is also fitted with a new-generation continuously variable transmission which replicates the behaviour of traditional autoboxes.
At the wheel, the Avante feels sturdy and agile, almost like a 3-series before BMW embraced forced induction.

What I do not like
Hard plastics in cabin

Review
Exterior
One of the best looking as of now on the road, there are more than 5 strangers come talk to me about my car which is quite a surprise for me. Normally people wun come engage with conversation in singapore.

Interior
The headunit is awesome with wireless android play/apple play, even sometime it hang but it can be forgive as it did not happen that frequent. Screen is big.. Everything go digital is nice but the dashboard and the door look plastic. The car have very good leg groom, to find a car able to accommodate someone who is 190 tall driving the car with comfort for both me and the passenger behind me is not easy.

Handling/engine
Best looking car but not the best handling car, pickup wise u cannot expect much from a 1.6 car with this size. The special feature of this car on helping driver to keep the car within the lane can be a issue for season driver who did not need the lane assist ( it cannot be switch off permanently)

What I like
- headunit
- car exterior design

What I do not like
- pickup speed is really bad
- the stupid lane assist that almost caused me accident

Review
Exterior
Nice looking modern design, close to Audi look. Diamond cut lines on the side, nice looking led lights that streches across the whole rear. Front looks sharp especially with the large grille. Car is lowered giving it a sporty look.

Interior
Overall setup looks nice. The infotainment screen and the digital instrument screen extends across half of the front dash board, giving it a very modern high tech look. It comes with wireless Auto Andriod and Car play.

The only thing that I do not like is the generous use of plastics on the dashboard and side doors. However the aesthetic of the digital instrument housing does not look posh and elegant.

Drive
During the test drive I had no chance to push it to 100km/h. I can say that the insulation is good during acceleration and at speed of 80km/h. The throttle is pretty responsive compared to other 1.6 cars, its much better than Mazada 3.

The steering wheel feels weighted, giving it a good feel. It comes with all the safety features that it's competitors lacks. I must say I am pretty impressed what Hyundai has done.

What I like
Lots of features compare to it competitors.
Engine and gear box is good, power is available when you need it.
Good weighted feel on the steering wheel.
Good sound insulation.

What I do not like
Too many plastics used inside the car making it less posh. The overall aesthetic can be improved, one look on the overall front screens and gear level I can tell the quality of the materials used are of lower quality.
