New Hyundai Elantra 2016 – Exterior

2016 hyundai elantra india

The design of the car seems to be slightly inspired by the Hyundai Genesis and Sonata sedans with sleeker looking headlamps with LED daytime running lights, an aggressively designed front bumper and a hexagonal grille (which is becoming a Hyundai staple design piece) with generous usage of chrome. Other design features include an all new tail lamp design complemented by a redesigned rear bumper and rear fenders.

New Hyundai Elantra 2016 – Interior

From the looks of it, the changes to the car’s cabin are pretty radical and the next Elantra features a sportier look on the inside. The official pictures reveal that the car will get a touchscreen infotainment system and some chrome highlights around the wedge-shaped aircon vents. Not much is really known about the upcoming car’s features list but easily expect it to set new benchmarks in its segment for the equipment list.


New Hyundai Elantra 2016 vs Old Elantra

The 2016 MY Elantra differs from the old one, currently sold here, in almost every aspect. On the outside, it’s all new and looks more grown up and mature. Instead of a two-part hexagonal grille you now get one large unit. As compared to the current car, the headlamps and tail lamps boast a much sleeker profile. Wheel arches aren’t as bold as before and, overall, the lines are much straighter. The new design is likely to appeal to a wider range of audience.

It a similar story on the inside as well. The dashboard looks less in-your-face now. It feels more sophisticated and, again, is likely to please a wider range of buyers. Engine and transmission options are likely to be carried over so no significant changes there.

  1. Any plans to increase the ground clearance 153mm which is too low for the Indian condition.

  2. I am very much interested a about new Elantra and I am waiting since last year for the new one. Shall be grateful if you please let me confirm about the car so that I can take a decesion whether to purchase or not. Frankly speaking in comparsion to other cars in this segment I like this car for his passionate style. If it has renovated then very good as it is seen in the net. Unfortunatly the dealer in India, better say in Kolkata has no idea about the car. The Hyundai showroom has also hands off about the car. So I am very egar to know about the car.

  3. Showroom dealerships have proposed the launch date in sept….if you have waited so long …pls wait for few more weeks……with bookings and delivery in festival season….navratra and diwali….elantra looks are awesome…gives a good beat to honda greiz….the tech of the car is the best in D segment available in India…

  4. We lookard to induction of Hyundai Ioniq Plug in hybrid. Hope the car priced for Indian market which possible only if it is assembled in India.
