About New Hyundai Elantra

Hyundai revealed India-bound Elantra in November last year at the LA Auto Expo and is planning to bring the overhauled version to the Indian soil. Cosmetic changes apart the saloon will get a slew of new features inside the cabin. Elantra seems to have improved in terms of safety as well. Engine choices will include a petrol and diesel mill.

 

New Hyundai Elantra Preview

Compared to the preceding model, the new Elantra will measure 20mm longer and 25mm wider. Styling will be changed too especially in front where the oblong grille will be replaced by a hexagonal grille featuring five chrome slats. The cat-eyed head lamps seem to have been skimmed appearing leaner. Fog lamps are sleek and very modishly designed. The low-lying hood is characterized by sharp lines rising from A pillar. Flank is marked by the notable belt line which extends till tail lamps. Arches are flared and massive tyres placed under it look well-proportioned. A steeply raking wind screen at rear adds to the overall curvaceous styling at back.
