According to the render, the 2016 Hyundai Elantra looks more elegant and contemporary than the outgoing model.

The teaser gives an idea of the 2016 Elantra’s final design, which looks more elegant and contemporary than the outgoing model. It will draw design cues from the Hyundai Fluidic Sculpture 2.0, which influences the Hyundai Tucson and i20 hatchback. As seen in the teaser, it gets a larger hexagonal grille flanked by sleek headlamps with LED DRLs, and a new c-pillar design.

Reports suggest that 53% of the body will feature high-strength steel construction for increased strength, while the drag coefficient is expected to be 0.27 Cd, making it one of the most aerodynamic cars in this segment.
