What new will be from Hyundai this year.

Full list of new car for 2011

Hyundai Accent Changes to the Accent are nominal for 2011. Automaker has eliminated the power sunroof on the top-of-the-line 2011 Accent SE to make the sporty model more inexpensive. A 172-watt AM/FM/XM/CD/MP3 audio system with six speakers with iPod/USB and MP3 auxiliary input jacks becomes standard on the GS trim, and two new colours are added to the exterior paint palette, Boston Red and Clearwater Blue.

Hyundai Azera This year it gets a boost in power on both its 3.3-liter and 3.8-liter V6 engines. The 3.3 jumps to 260 horsepower, the 3.8 to 283 hp. Fuel economy is also up: 20/29 city/highway mpg for the 3.3-liter model and 18/28 mpg for the 3.8-liter. A new six-speed automatic replaces the old five-speed gearbox.

Hyundai Elantra Wholly redesigned for 2011, the new car was introduced earlier this year in Korea as the Avante. The 1.6 Gamma GDI engine delivers 138 hp and 123 pound-feet of torque and delivers better fuel economy than many of its rivals with conventional gasoline engines of similar size.

Hyundai Elantra Touring The five-door Elantra Touring carries over to the 2011 model year with really unimportant updates. Leather seats now come standard on the SE trim, and three new paint colours are available: Atlantic Blue, Shimmering Silver and Titanium Gray Metallic.

Hyundai Equus Equus is Hyundai's first raid into the ultrahigh-end luxury sedan market. The 385-hp 4.6-liter V8-powered rear-wheel-drive sedan is built on a stretched Hyundai Genesis platform, and measures 7 inches longer than the Genesis sedan. Offering passengers 45 inches of front legroom and nearly 39 inches in the rear seat, the spacious Equus starts at $59,000. Expensive for sure, but it comes with features like an electronically controlled air suspension, a forward-view cornering camera, a 17-speaker Lexicon stereo system and adaptive cruise control.

Hyundai Genesis The 3.8-liter Genesis sedan stands same for this year, as the 4.6-liter V8 model gets minimum changes. The V8 engine gets a 10-hp bump for a total of 385 hp and the Technology package becomes standard. It adds the Lexicon 7.1 Discrete surround-sound audio system with 17 speakers, Hyundai's Ultimate Navigation System featuring the intuitive Driver Information System (DIS) with 8-inch screen, smart cruise control, electronic parking brake, cooled driver seat, adaptive front lighting system with HID headlights, and parking assistance system with front and rear sensors and rear-view camera.

Hyundai Santa Fe New paint and an upgraded stereo system are the extent of the changes for the 2011 Santa Fe, now being built alongside the Kia Sorento at the Korean automaker's plant in Georgia. Espresso Brown, Frost White Pearl, Mineral Gray, Moonstone Silver and Sonoran Red are the fancy new paint options, and a 605-watt Infinity Logic 7 surround-sound AM/FM/CD-changer/MP3 audio system with 10 speakers (including subwoofer) and external amplifier are standard on the Santa Fe Limited.

Hyundai Sonata The 2011 Sonata now offers an all four-cylinder engine line-up with a 2.4-liter gasoline direct-injection engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that boasts as much as 200 hp, and a 274-hp 2.0-liter turbo. A Hybrid Blue Drive model also debuts this year, earning an estimated 37/40 city/highway mpg. Features such as XM Satellite Radio with real-time XM NavTraffic and XM Data Services and a touch screen navigation system, plus iPod and USB inputs hardly make the new Sonata seem like a traditional economy sedan.

Hyundai Tucson Completely redesigned last year, so updates to the 2011 Tucson are few. A new entry-level GL trim, equipped with a smaller 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and optional six-speed automatic transmission, earns 23/31 city/highway mpg fuel economy ratings. The midlevel Tucson GLS adds several features to its standard equipment list including a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, 17-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth and roof side rails. Limited models also offer improved damping for better ride quality and a standard auto-dimming mirror with HomeLink. Changes to the Tucson's steering improve integration with the crossover's electronic stability control (ESC), and every all-wheel-drive model now offers heated front seats.

Hyundai Veracruz The only modification to Hyundai's largest crossover is a revamping of the Veracruz GLS's Premium package, which now includes features: a power tilt-and-slide sunroof; a power tailgate; an auto-dimming interior mirror with HomeLink and compass; and auto-dimming, tilt-in-reverse exterior mirrors.
