Available for sale in markets like the Middle East, North America and Korea, the sixth gen Hyundai Elantra features a more premium styling influenced by Hyundai's Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy. It features 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 in the top grade.

The interior will appear to look familiar for people acquainted with the insides of models like the Hyundai i20, Sonata or the latest Hyundai Tucson. Along with a new design, Hyundai has also refined the quality of materials as well as increased the list of features available.

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.
