7 September 2019 -
After the recent Grand i10 Nios last month Hyundai Motor India is prepping up to introduce the 2019 Elantra (facelift) this month. The new sedan is now in its final phase of local testing and has been spotted yet again, courtesy Team-BHP.
Hyundai is gearing up to roll out a slew of new products for India and the facelifted Elantra will be the most imminent one which is slated to see the daylight this month. Generally, all the facelifted models from the Korean automaker are so extremely updated in terms of looks that they sort-of qualify to be called as all-new models. And the case with the upcoming Elantra is no different. At the front, the new Elantra sports a cascading grille which syncs well enough with the newly designed front bumper which now looks sharper than ever. The car also features sleeker, LED headlamps and triangular fog lamps which give a sinister appeal to its front. Furthermore, its front design also looks more intimidating thanks to the newly carved crease lines on the bonnet. The new Elantra rolls on standard 16-inch alloys.
Coming over to the rear, the car now features much sharper graphics on its redesigned combination lamps. It also sports a remastered rear bumper with integrated reverse lights and registration plate. Furthermore, the boot-lid now gets a cleaner design and sports centrally placed 'ELANTRA' lettering spread wide across its width. The interior of the new model is mostly the same as that of the old model.
The new Hyundai Elantra will be available with a 152 PS 2.0-litre four-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine and a 128 PS 1.6-litre diesel engine. The engines will be offered with the transmission choices of 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic. The diesel will be discontinued before April 2020 as it will not be upgraded to BS-VI standards, but the petrol-sipping engine will be given another life with the BS-VI update.
