Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Promises a combined fuel economy of 14.88 km/l.

Hyundai North America has unveiled the next generation 2016 Hyundai Elantra at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. The new Elantra will begin arriving at dealerships across U.S from January 2016.

The 2016 Elantra was launched in South Korea in September this year.

Compared to the model sold in Korea, the US-spec Hyundai Elantra has chrome inserts on the hexagonal grille and LED DRLs in the bumper. Measuring 20 mm longer and 25 mm wider, the new Elantra is not only lighter, but has a stiffer body structure thanks to the usage of Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS).

The 2016 Elantra will come standard with Electronic Stability Control, Vehicle Stability Management, Traction Control, ABS, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, and a new driver’s knee airbag. Customers can also opt for features like Lane Keep Assist, Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist, and a rearview camera.
