Hyundai will introduce the next-generation Elantra in India, in August. In a recent interview, the company’s Managing Director, Mr Y.K. Koo, confirmed the plans to launch four or five models before end of this year and one of them is the new version of the D-Segment sedan.

Hyundai debuted the new Elantra in the global markets last year. It is based on the modified platform of the current car and is longer and wider than the outgoing model. However, the wheelbase at 2700mm is exactly the same.

The new car looks more aggressive with the new version 2.0 fluidic design sculpt. The hexagonal grille at the front is similar to that of the Santa Fe and the more recently launched Creta. The headlamps have projector units with LED daytime running lights and the fog lamps on the bumper are vertical LED strips. Hyundai is calling the new design ‘Modern Premium’ and in lot of ways it is an extension of the current design sculpt. The biggest change is to the rear profile; the roofline flows smoothly into the boot like in a notchback.

The new Elantra in India will continue to use the 1.8-litre petrol engines producing 147bhp and 178Nm along with the 1.6-litre turbocharged diesel producing 126bhp and 260Nm. Both the petrol and diesel engines will be available with the choice of manual and automatic transmissions.

Hyundai will first introduce special editions of the Xcent and the Grand i10 in the next couple of months. This will be followed by the Elantra in Auguts and the Tucson during the festive season.
