Design wise, the new Elantra features a more refined design compared to the previous-generation car's 'Fuidic Design'. Uo front, the new Elantra features sharp and sleek headlamps with LED Daytime Running Lamps, that flank a trapezoidal, five-slat grille. Small, round fog lamps are also present in their own boomerang shaped enclosures on either side of the bumper.
At the rear, the Elantra features swept back tail lamps which feature graphics that seemingly split them into three parts. The new Elantra sits on 16-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the dashboard of the Elantra is tilted slightly towards the driver. The centre console features an 8-inch HD display with support for both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay along with Bluetooth connectivity. The ventilated front seats come with 10-way power adjustability.
The Elantra is available in five different colour options at launch: Polar White, Marina Blue, Sleek Silver, Red Passion, and Phantom Black.
