India-Bound Hyundai Elantra Engines Revealed

Written By:

Hyundai is all set to bring the new Elantra sedan into India this September, 10 months after its official debut at the LA Auto Show in November 2015.

When the Elantra finally makes its way onto Indian roads, the sedan is expected to offer two engine options  — the current 1.6-litre diesel and brand new petrol engine. Another petrol engine with a turbocharger on board may join in later on in the Elantra's life-cycle.

The diesel engine will be a tweaked version of the current 1.6-litre engine which powers the current Elantra. Power has been upped from 126bhp to 134bhp. The engine will be available with 6-speed manual and automatic gearbox options.

Hyundai will offer the new Elantra with a brand new 2.0-litre Atkinson cycle petrol engine that produces 147bhp. The new engine is expected to be more frugal with fuel consumption and will be available with the same gearbox options as the diesel – 6-speed manual and automatic.

Hyundai is also considering a more powerful 2.0-litre turbocharged engine for the upcoming Elantra. The power output for the new engine is not known but it is expected to be paired with a 7-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox when it does arrive in India.

The new Elantra sees Hyundai adopt a more mature styling package for the Elantra with less of the flowy styling associated with the current 'fluidic' Elantra.

Inside, the Elantra will feature a new touchscreen display that will support Android Auto.
