The feature-rich Korean sedan will go on sale early next month and may come with sub-Rs 15 lakh price tag.
We had our first taste of Hyundai’s all-new Elantra at the 2012 Auto Expo back in January. We have also seen a number of test mules doing the rounds lately. Now that, the stunning looking Elantra sedan's launch is not too far away, we have some sizable details of what could be another big hit from Hyundai’s stable.
The fifth-generation Elantra features Hyundai’s trademark Fluidic design treatment which, in the past has worked wonders for the Verna and the latest Sonata. The design looks sleek and is balanced at the same time without being much of an overkill. The story is no different on the inside either. The interior is equally impressive and is a far cry from the odd layout found in the previous Elantra.
Under the hood, the Elantra comes with a choice of either petrol or a diesel engine; the 1.8-litre multiport injection petrol motor puts out 150PS of power and 165Nm of torque, while the diesel version comes powered by a 1.6-litre CRDi engine producing around 126PS of power and over 260Nm of torque. Both engines are available with 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
Like every other Hyundai on sale today, the new Elantra packs in quite a list of features including cruise control, dual-zone climate control with rear AC vents, rear parking sensors, powered driver seat, push button start, 16-inch alloy wheels and lots more. Hyundai hasn’t skimped on safety either, offering 6 airbags, Electronic Stability Control, ABS, Vehicle Stability Management and Hill Hold Control.
The all-new 2012 Hyundai Elantra fluidic will go on sale by next month with prices expected to be in the Rs 12-14 lakh bracket.
