Video: Next generation Hyundai Elantra caught practicing its parking?

Next generation Hyundai Elantra parking – Click above to watch video after the jump

The next Hyundai Elantra was revealed a few months ago at South Korea's Busan Motor Show. It's been revealed again, this time outdoors, in a parking lot where it appears to be practicing parallel parking maneuvers. Hyundai's small four-door has grown in size, which helps it wear those stretched 'fluidic' design cues rather nicely. Once a portrait of anonymity, the Elantra's now as good-looking as its big brother, the Sonata.

When the restyled Hyundai Elantra arrives next year, we expect it to be motivated by a 1.6-liter gasoline direct-injection engine with 138 horsepower. And we have a feeling those new looks are going to make people take a good, long look at the Elantra in liew of say, a Civic or Corolla.

As for parking jobs like this? We have a feeling they'll be a lot easier than these drivers are making it look. If they had to find street parking in, say, New York, they'd run out of gas before they successfully stashed the car. Follow the jump to see the video, which does nothing to make parking seem any less mundane than it is. Hat tip to Avery
