While India got the facelifted Hyundai Elantra in October this year, the next-gen Hyundai Elantra (codename: Hyundai CN7) is already in the works internationally. It is said to break cover in June 2020. Here's a close look at the future compact sedan, courtesy jooni_log Instagram.
As the new spy images suggest, the all-new Hyundai Elantra will use new LED headlamps, restyled machine-cut alloy wheels and slightly less sloping roofline which will allow for a better headroom for the rear passengers. The front-end typically will be wide and low, giving it a sporty stance. The sleek greenhouse is sharper, and the C-pillar blade aims to further enhance the styling on the sides. The roof has been uncovered, and it also delineates a similar contour while carrying forward the shark-fin antenna.
As known previously, the next-gen Hyundai Elantra will employ an all-new 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine known internally as the G4LIII unit. If not internationally, this engine will certainly be offered in the China-spec model. That said, other options may also include 1.4- and 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol units and a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated unit.
The next-gen Hyundai Elantra may miss-out on a diesel powertrain, and be offered with electrified powertrains instead. For the record, the current-gen model is available with a plug-in hybrid powertrain exclusively in China.
The next-gen Elantra is unlikely to reach the Indian shores anytime before the second half of 2021.
