Despite the rapid decline in sales of C-segment sedans, Hyundai has not given up on the Elantra and has brought the new facelifted model of the same here in India. With an new swankier exterior design and a set of new features, the 2020 Elantra is definitely much more upmarket.
This time around, Hyundai has chosen to skip the 1.6-litre diesel engine due to poor demand. The 2.0-litre petrol engine (152 PS/192 Nm) is standard, and it's now BS-VI compliant. It is being offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox and a 6-speed torque converter. The five paint schemes – Marina Blue, Polar White, Fiery Red, Typhoon Silver and Phantom Black - also have been carried over.
