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.

Could be priced between INR 15 Lakhs and INR 20 Lakhs (ex-showroom).

Hyundai Motor India Ltd will conduct the market launch of the all new 2016 Hyundai Elantra today. This is the first major product launch for the Korean manufacturer this year.
