In addition to the next-gen Creta and the facelifted Verna, Hyundai will likely launch the facelifted Elantra diesel in India by next month. The company had launched the facelifted Elantra petrol in the country in October last year.
The facelifted Hyundai Elantra will get the same diesel engine in India that is offered in the Kia Seltos. It will be the 1.5-litre CRDi VGT turbocharged four-cylinder unit that produces 115 PS at 4,000 rpm and 250 Nm of torque at 1,500-2,750 rpm. This engine was being tested in the Hyundai i30 in India during its development. It is BS-VI compliant and is going to be offered in the 2020 Hyundai Creta and the 2020 Hyundai Verna as well, which will be launched on 16 March and 26 March respectively.
The new Hyundai Elantra diesel will be offered with a 6-speed manual transmission and even a 6-speed automatic transmission. It will be sold in the same grades as the new Hyundai Elantra petrol: S, SX and SX (O). The manual transmission will be available in the S and SX grades and the automatic transmission will be available in the SX and SX(O) grades.
