Aggressive Looking Hyundai Elantra Facelift Spied on Indian Roads
Hyundai Motor India Limited entered the Indian Automobile market in 1996 and since then, the company has been offering products to satisfy Indian customers. The South Korean company has been known for offering better looks, interiors, and designs than its rival brands.
After a successful launch of India’s first connected-SUV, Venue and India’s first long-range EV, the Kona Electric, Hyundai has been spotted testing their new product, Elantra. A camouflaged version of the new facelifted model has been spied on the Indian roads and this is the first update for this sedan since its launch.
The sedan is expected to get new triangle-shaped LED headlamps along with redesigned bumpers complementing its aggressive front. The vehicle will also get a new set of alloy and the major changes can be seen at the back with a new set of LED tail lamps.
So far, the interiors of the vehicle have neither been leaked nor revealed but the reports suggest, interiors will be based on the international spec model. These would include revamped instrument cluster featuring coloured MID, spruced up AC vents and a steering wheel identical to Kona Electric Vehicle.
The vehicle is also expected to feature a touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, dual-zone climate control, ventilated and powered front seats, hands-free smart boot, wireless charging, electric sunroof, push Start & Stop button, cruise control, Blue Link connected-car tech and more.
Apart from these spectacular interiors, the vehicle would also boast some safety features like six airbags, ABS with EBD, ESC and hill start assist. But that’s not it. Elantra facelift is also expected to come with a BS-VI compliant 1.5-litre diesel engine producing 115PS and 250Nm of torque. For the petrol variant, the vehicle is likely to sport a 2.0-litre unit churning out 152PS and 192Nm torque while meeting the norms of Bharat Emission VI. Both the engine variants are expected to come mated with 6-speed Manual and torque converting Automatic transmissions. The Elantra facelift is expected to launch by the end of this year with a starting price of Rs. 13.82Lakhs.
