Hyundai New Elantra Preview
Now based on the new K3 platform from Hyundai, the Elantra has undergone a generational upgrade for the global markets, and the good news is, it’s on the cards for an India launch slated towards the end of the second quarter of this year.
The new Hyundai Elantra has grown its dimensions, and also its design is a complete departure from the ongoing model. On the face, the sedan now gets the same ‘Parametric-jewel-pattern’ grille as the bigger Sonata flanked by wraparound headlamps. In profile, the diamond-cut wheels and coupe-like roofline gives a touch of sportiness to the new Elantra. The coupe-like roofline flows into the fastback-style rear. The LED taillamps at the rear are connected via an LED light bar, forming an ‘H’ when lit up.
On the inside, the new Elantra gets reams of equipment, as you’d expect from a Hyundai. Taking the centre stage is a 10.25-inch infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support. There’s also a 10.25-inch screen for the full-digital instrument cluster. The seats look nice and supportive, and there’s ample room at the front as well as the rear.
Coming to the powertrain options, the new Elantra will be powered by the same set of BS-VI compliant engines as the current model, which means there will be a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine alongside a 2.0-litre diesel unit. There are also speculations of a 1.6-litre T-GDI petrol engine with mild-hybrid technology since the brand now offers a turbo petrol engine option with most of its cars.
The radical and feature-loaded Elantra is expected to arrive on the Indian shores before the third quarter of this year. It will, of course, be pricier than the current-gen model.
