Featuring an evolutionary exterior design, the new Hyundai Elantra measures 4610 mm long, 1800 mm wide, 1450 mm high and has a wheelbase 2700 mm. Exterior headlines include projector headlamps with LED DRLs, 6-point grille with bold horizontal slats, 5-spoke alloy rims, LED taillamps and chrome door handles.

Inside, the design is influenced by the bigger Hyundai Sonata, featuring a new 3-spoke steering wheel and center console, revised instrument cluster and SoyFoam seat cushions. It appears that the China-spec model doesn’t offer a 7-or 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, but rather makes do with a small LCD display with buttons.

The new Elantra is powered by a 1.4-liter T-GDI petrol engine producing 130 PS and 184 Nm of torque, and paired to a 7-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. It comes with three driving modes: Normal, Sport and Eco, which is standard on all variants sold in other markets.

Beijing Hyundai Motor will not retire the current Elantra, as spyshots showed that it was getting a second facelift to keep it on the shelves for a few more years.
