Hyundai Elantra Front  View

The new Elantra is a sea change over the one that had come to India long time ago. It follows the Hyundai Fluidic design language and is probably the best looking of all the cars in the Hyundai range. Design wise, the new Elantra is no different. The Elantra also gets the now famous Hyundai’s “Fluidic Sculpture” design principles and in many ways is an evolution of the design qualities found in the new Sonata. At front there are stunning looking swept-back headlights plus coupled with Hyundai’s signature hexagonal front grille, the result is an aggressive and handsome face.The interiors are also well equipped and futuristic.The curvy centre-console looks funky and the buttons are neatly laid out.

The steering wheel looks similar to the one in the Sonata! Expect features like push button start, power sunroof, one touch windows, leather seating, Bluetooth/USB/auxiliary inputs and a rear-view camera. There are a lot of features on offer and the new Elantra is the best equipped when compared with rivals.The Elantra comes with two engine options- a 1.8 petrol and a 1.6 diesel. The 1.8 petrol makes 142 bhp with 182 Nm of torque. Its a silky smooth motor that impresses a lot. But the diesel is the one to go for, it is the same 1.6 potent CRDi engine as seen on the Verna. It makes 126 bhp and 265 Nm of torque. Even the extra weight of the Elantra over the Verna doesnt really hamper the performance.

It has a bit of turbo lag under 1800rpm but once past that, expect to see speeds of over 175km/h thanks to the 6 speed manual ‘box and autobox. The petrol gives 16.3 kmpl and the diesel gives 22.7 (ARAI).The suspension set-up of McPherson strut at front and coil spring at rear gives a very good ride and its comfortable over bad roads, high speed stability is decent too. The handling could be better though. When it comes to steering the Elantra has a light yet direct steering which makes driving easy.The Elantra starts at 12.5 lakhs ex-showroom for the base petrol to 15.85 for the top of the line diesel. All the variants are well loaded with features like CD/MP3 player, USB, Bluetooth, touch screen, auto climate control. rear view camera. The Elantar is a brilliantly equipped sedan and offers brilliant value for money. For a detailed analysis of the car read below

Pros: Best looking in its class, High equipment list, Good quality interiors, Large Hyundai dealer network
Cons: Looks too much like a Verna, Quality not class best, Light steering, Performance not class best

Hyundai Elantra Interiors

Interior design is typical Hyundai but now looks plusher and will come loaded with lots of features. The curvy centre-console looks funky and the buttons are neatly laid out. The steering wheel looks similar to the one in the Sonata! There are features like push button start, sunroof, leather seating, Bluetooth/USB/auxiliary inputs and a rear-view camera. It also has good legroom and adequate headroom.

What we like
The new Elantra has lots of features and is the best equipped in its class plus the quality and design is also very good.
What we don't like
The new Elantra is not as spacious as rivals and also the quality is not as good as VW Jetta.

Hyundai Elantra Exteriors

The recent success of Hyundai cars can be attributed to the pricing package, comfort and ofcourse looks. Design wise, the new Elantra is no different. The Elantra also gets the now famous Hyundai’s “Fluidic Sculpture” design principles and in many ways is an evolution of the design qualities found in the new Sonata. At front there are stunning looking swept-back headlights plus coupled with Hyundai’s signature hexagonal front grille, the result is an aggressive and handsome face.

What we like
The new Elantra is the best looking in its segment with a futuristic look.
What we don't like
The looks are too similar to the Verna and should have been different.

Hyundai Elantra Engine & Performance

The new Hyundai Elantra comes with two engine options. There is the 1.8-litre petrol which develops a healthy 146 bhp with 182Nm of torque. The other engine is the diesel, its the familiar 1.6-litre CRDI which has 126 bhp with 265Nm of torque. The petrol has a top speed of 195 kph and the diesel has a top speed of 190 kph. Both the manual and automatic are 6-speed gearboxes.

What we like
The Elantra has a high top speed which impresses, the petrol is also a strong performer with a punchy bottom end and the automatic gearbox is easy to use as well.
What we don't like
The Elantra diesel is not as powerful as rivals and lacks performance and has turbo lag. The automatic is not as smooth as a dual clutch automatic.

What we like
The Elantra offers all the necessary safety features and stops very well as well as the ABS works well.
What we don't like
The handling of the new Elantra is not class best as there is body roll and the steering too is quite light.

Hyundai Elantra Comfort & Suspension

The suspension set up of the Elantra is a McPherson Strut type along with coil spring for the front and for the rear it has a coupled torsion beam with gas type shock absorbers. The ride quality is smooth and better than in the Verna and swallows bumps very well. Going over potholes, the Elantra gives a comfortable ride with its soft suspension.

What we like

What we don't like
At high speeds the Elantra ride is not as good as some other rivals and the boot space could have been bigger.

Pros Design, engine

Cons Soft suspension

Hyundai new Elantra is brilliant D segment offering which has already become the leader, selling more units than the Altis or the Cruze. The design is something appeals to the public and moreover, the engine and transmission options are plenty. However, the car lacks a solid feel at high speeds and with four passengers, ground clearance is very poor! But again, the cabin will win your heart with comfort, features and design. Lovely overall product from Hyundai again
