Hyundai’s Corolla-class competitor made its debut in 1990. Since its inception it has been a front-wheel drive, and early models used Mitsubishi engines and mechanicals.
Since the RD (second generation) model launched in 1995, the Elantra has been sold in South Korea as the Avante.
Due to a name conflict with the Mitsubishi Magna Elante, the car was sold was the Lantra for its first (J1) and second (RD) generations in Australia. In Europe, the Lantra was also used for a time due to a conflict with the Lotus Elan and the Kia Elan.
