The 2016 Hyundai Elantra is Hyundai India’s first major product launch for 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.
