Will continue to be manufactured at Hyundai’s factory in Chennai.
The next gen Hyundai Elantra has been photographed testing in India, ahead of a rumored launch this August. It is Hyundai India’s first major product launch this year.
The 2016 Hyundai Elantra is styled around Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy that also influences the i20 and new Tucson. Some of the exterior features seen in the pre-production prototypes include sleek projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights, large hexagonal grille with chrome inserts, 16 inch alloy rims, LED taillights, shark fin antenna and parking sensors.
The interior will feature a more sedated and premium design, compared to the outgoing model. Hyundai has also refined the quality of materials as well as increased the list of features available. It is likely to be equipped with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, auto-dimming IRVM, dual zone automatic climate control and start/stop button.
Engine lineup could include a 1.6-litre MPi as its petrol option, while the diesel variant could pack the 1.6-litre VGT CRDi unit. Transmission options may include a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic, while a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic could be introduced in the top-end diesel variant.
