Part drawings of Hyundai Elantra facelift’s taillights leak online
Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
We brought you the spyshots of the camouflaged test mule of the Hyundai Elantra facelift a few days ago and today, we stumbled upon the part drawing which throws light on the upcoming car’s taillight detailing.
The detailing depicted in the drawing is consistent with that of the test mule which was spotted in South Korea. The Fluidic Hyundai Elantra has been in the international market since 2010 and a refresh would help it stay fresh amidst the competition.
As you can see from the leaked image, the taillamp elements boast a sophisticated design which is sure to improve the aesthetics of the sedan’s rear, especially at night. The overall shape of the taillamp however stays unchanged.
As evident from the test mule, the Hyundai Elantra facelift will not be featuring any dramatic change. Instead, there would be mild revisions and refinements. Just like the taillights, the headlamps are also expected to undergo redetailing. We can also safely expect new front and rear bumpers.
Coming to the engine options, the Hyundai Elantra is likely to continue with its 147 bhp 1.8 litre petrol and 1.6 litre 126 bhp diesel engine. Six-speed manual and automatic gearboxes would take charge of the transmission duties.
The Hyundai Elantra facelift is expected to make its global debut sometime later this year.
