Hyundai Elantra Variants
Editorial Test Drive Review of Hyundai Elantra
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

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

Elantra is a cool car & the aerodynamic looks really take its class from other. Drive is very smooth. Dual AC, Seats with AC are really amazing considering India's weather. Rear seats are very comfortable too. All necessary features on the steering wheel makes the drive more convenient.
