Hyundai has silently updated their D-segment offering, the Elantra with new features and an updated list of equipment. The current-generation Hyundai Elantra was first introduced in the Indian market in 2016 and has been a popular offering in its segment.
The Hyundai Elantra already comes with a host of features across its four variants. Hyundai has now added additional features to the Elantra, hoping to attract more customers and take on other rivals in the segment.
However, the new features will be available only on the top-end SX(O) variant. These new features include front parking sensors, emergency stop signal, wireless charging, auto-link connectivity and sliding front armrest. The Elantra is also one of the first cars in the segment to come with ventilated front seats.
Apart from the new features, the Elantra already boasts of a number of features. Some of the standard features on the Hyundai Elantra: projector headlamps, LED DRLs, keyless entry, push-button start, sunroof, shark-fin antenna, 10-way power adjustable driver seat, dual-zone climate control, rear parking camera & sensors, leather seats and 10-spoke alloy wheel among others.
The Elantra also comes with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as Mirror Link. Other Safety features on the sedan include dual airbags, ABS with EBD, Electronic Stability Control, Vehicle Stability Management, Hill-Start Assist Control and more.
Mechanically, the Hyundai Elantra will remain unchanged. The Elantra is powered by a 2.0 and 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engine options, respectively. The 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol unit produces 150bhp and 191Nm of torque. The 1.6-litre diesel engine, on the other hand, churns out 126bhp and 260Nm of peak torque. Both engines come mated to either a six-speed manual or automatic gearbox.
Hyundai globally unveiled their 2019 Elantra recently in theUSA. The new 2019 Hyundai Elantra offers a much sharper and edgier design, with a sportier overall look. The 2019 Hyundai Elantra is expected to come to India sometime in the second half of next year.
Prices for the updated Hyundai Elantra, however, also remain unchanged. The Hyundai Elantra comes with a starting price of Rs 13.61 lakh for the base petrol variant while the top-end diesel automatic comes with a price tag of Rs 19.91 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom (Delhi).
Thoughts On The Hyundai Elantra Sedan
The Hyundai Elantra has been among the popular sedan offerings from the Korean manufacturer in India. However, with increasing interest for SUVs in the Indian market, the sedan has been performing relatively low.
Hyundai hopes that the addition of new features and equipment will help the sedan improve its sales trajectory in the country. The Hyundai Elantra in Indiatakes on the likes of the Toyota Corolla Altis and the Skoda Octavia.
