The India-bound 2021 Hyundai Elantra has started reaching showrooms in South Korea. Here are the upcoming compact sedan’s first real-life images from the brand's homeland, showing its exterior and interior in detail.
The 2021 Hyundai Elantra (2021 Hyundai Avante) has quite a dramatic design. Wide, cascading grille with parametric-jewel pattern and integrated front turn signals, connected tail lamps forming the brand’s H logo, integrated ducktail rear spoiler, luxury car-style steering wheel, clubbed instrument cluster and infotainment system screens under one piece of glass and slim high-tech AC vents covering the dashboard are some of the main highlights of the all-new compact sedan's design.
The all-new Hyundai Elantra is 30 mm longer, 25 mm wider and 20 mm lower than its predecessor. It has a 20 mm longer wheelbase. Based on the all-new K3 platform, it is about 45 kg lighter compared to the previous generation model.
In South Korea, Smartstream G1.6 petrol and LPi 1.6 LPG are the engine options. The former can be had with a 6-speed manual transmission or a CVT, while the latter comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The engine options for the U.S. market are different, and we’ve covered them in a previous report.
On the outside, the 2021 Hyundai Elantra comes equipped with LED headlamps, 17-inch dual-tone alloy wheels and LED tail lamps. Interior highlights include 10.25-inch customisable virtual instrument cluster, 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, 64-colour customisable mood lighting, front-seat ventilation, 10-way electric driver seat (including lumbar support), rear-seat heating and 8-speaker Bose premium sound system.
