The 2021 Hyundai Elantra will be formally revealed on March 18.
Hyundai is all set to bring in the all-new next-gen Elantra in about a week's time. To mark the one-week waiting period, the company has dropped a couple of design teasers and a teaser video as well. Looking at the new design, the 2021 Elantra instantly reminds us of the 2020 Sonata, as both cars have gone for the four-door Coupé silhouette. But where the Sonata follows a relatively simpler design, the Elantra embodies in its profile what Hyundai refers to as the 'Parametric Dynamics' - the key behind the 'edgy' polyhedral design element seen on the doors (three lines meeting at one point). The video teaser gives a brief glimpse of the front grille as well, which is again quite similar to that of the Sonata.
The interior teaser image previews a cockpit design that's quite driver-centric and minimalist. The centre console extends all the way to the dashboard and continues to the driver's door (finished in a contrasting lighter colour), which seems to cordon off the driver's seat from the rest of the cabin. Apart from the new-design steering wheel, also seen in the teaser are the digital instrument cluster & the infotainment touchscreen, that have been housed together as a single unit - reminiscent of the Mercedes-Benz layout. Though there are barely any conventional buttons present in the sketch, expect the actual car's interior to differ in this respect.
The final specs and powertrain details will be revealed at the time of the car's debut.
