The Sedan Altima’s just been replaced. Perhaps the Coupe variant will get replaced soon?
This is my impression of the production Ellure. I have a feeling the Ellure concept previews either the next Altima for North America, or the Slyphy in Asia. Or maybe the Primera for Europe.
Comparing the official new Hyundai ix20 (left images) to my Matrix renderings (right images), I dare say I was correct back in September 2009, to have predicted the new Matrix will just be the Kia Venga with new front and rear designs.

The 3-door Forte hatch not only looses two rear doors, but the front gets the Koup’s bumper too. And the side-rear window’s shape has changed. At the back, the plate area has been moved to the bumper. And the rear wind-screen has been tidied up too.

P.S. I’ll be leaving to Kuala Lumpur tomorrow, till Sunday. Funny thing is, Halloween is also my Mother’s birthday. By the way it’s my friend, Paul Tan’s birthday today. So Happy Birthday Paul! Anyway, with limited Internet access, I’ll have less updates here. Just so you all know. So Happy Halloween!
