Hyundai has revealed some details and a complete photo gallery of the facelifted Elantra in South Korea. The model is called the Avante in the South Korean market and has received several improvements over the previous version, including more technology and cosmetic transformations. Mechanically, the model remains unaltered. In India, Hyundai is gearing up to launch the much-awaited Verna on March 21. A while ago, the carmaker disclosed the exterior and interior details of the 2023 Verna. Now closer to the launch, the firm has revealed the safety features of the new Verna. The model will now have ADAS Level 2 and 30 standard features across variants. Coming to the Elantra version, a range of new updates and images have been unveiled on the global platform. So, without much delay, let's have a quick look at what the new Elantra has to offer.

Next-gen Hyundai Elantra: What's New?
Dubbed the Avante, the car gets a built-in dashcam, which is positioned on the top of the windscreen and transmits video to the infotainment panel or directly to a smartphone. It also allows an iOS or Android-powered smartphone to function as a digital key. The Korean Elantra's owners can share the usage rights with up to seven people and lock and unlock the vehicle.
The 'After Blow' function, first introduced by Hyundai in 2020, is the cabin's standout feature. It is an intelligent technology which reduced mould formation by drying the evaporator and the air route after the air conditioner is turned off.
The Elantra's front fascia has also been revised. It now sports the new low-placed parametric jewel design for the front grille, flanked on both sides by LED headlamps. The side profile still has angular cuts and creases, but the U-shaped insert on the rear bumper gives the rear of the car an aggressive appearance. It also comes with a new design for dual-tone alloy wheels.
