The Elantra follows Hyundai’s Fluidic design language and is one of the best looking of all the cars in the company’s model line up here. Design wise, the front fascia sports stunning looking swept-back headlights coupled with projector bulbs and LED guide lights. Other bits like Hyundai’s signature hexagonal front grille, boomerang shaped fog lamps and chrome garnish impart an aggressive as well as a handsome character to the Elantra. The side-profile features yet more chrome and tastefully designed alloy wheels. At the back, there are LED effect tail-lamps and chrome-tipped exhaust and dual-tone bumper design. 

Inside, the premium feel of the Elantra continues. The interiors are very well equipped and feature hi-tech futuristic gadgets.The curvy centre-console looks funky and the buttons are neatly laid out. The steering wheel feels chunky to hold while features like push button start, power sunroof, one touch windows, leather seating, Bluetooth/USB/auxiliary inputs and a rear-view camera give it an even more upmarket feel. The Elantra is very possibly the best-equipped car in its segment! 

The Elantra comes with two engine options- a 1.8 petrol and a 1.6 diesel. The 1.8-litre petrol makes a silky smooth motor that impresses a lot. But the diesel is the one that will bring volumes for Hyundai. It is the same 1.6-litre potent CRDi engine as seen on the Verna. It has oodles of torque on offer, which is delivered in a brisk way! There’s a bit of turbo lag under 1,800rpm but once past that, the speedo needle just keeps on surging! 

In terms of ride and handling, the suspension set-up of McPherson strut at front and coupled torsion-beam rear axle offers excellent ride and comfort over bad roads. The high-speed stability is decent too, but don’t mistake it for an enthusiast’s car. Handling wise, the Elantra is no corner carver, but again, it’s not meant to be one! The steering is light and direct, and makes driving an easy affair, especially during intra-city runs. 

All the variants are well loaded with features like CD/MP3 player, USB, Bluetooth, touch screen, auto climate control. rear view camera. The Elantra is a well equipped sedan and it goes without saying, it offers brilliant value for money. 


On the inside, the Elantra feels and look every bit as premium as it is on the outside. The cabin is finished in sporty black theme and comes with leather seats, metallic scuff plates, sporty aluminium pedals, console box with arm rest and rear AC vents. The cabin in itself is very spacious and luxurious while the fit and finish, material quality is top-notch. 

Creature comfort on the Elantra includes a multimedia system that features a 4.3-inch colour TFT LCD display and steering mounted control for Bluetooth connectivity audio controls. The TFT screen also provides assist during parking using a rear camera.

Among other class-leading features, there are auto headlamps, push button start, electric heated and foldable ORVMs, auto cruise-control, 10-way power seats with lumbar support etc.

  • Tank Range

    The Hyundai Elantra has 55-litres fuel tank capacity, which will make up for a decent range.

Comfort Suspension

Hyundai is known for making some of the most comfortable cars. The same is refelected in the Elantra as well. At the front, the Elantra comes fitted with Macpherson Strut type with coil spring suspension setup while at the rear there’s a coupled torsion beam axle setup doing the job. In conjunction, both the setups work brilliantly as they soak up bumps and undulations on the road. Couple this with a light steering, and the Elantra is a breeze to drive! 

Comfort and Suspension

  • Comfort

    The suspension on the Elantra is softly-sprung, meaning it offers a supple and comfortable ride. The insulation inside the cabin is impressive and the NVH levels are well contained.

Engine Performance

The Hyundai Elantra comes with two engine options. There is a 1.8-litre petrol and a 1.6-litre CRDI. Both the engines come with 6-speed manual and automatic transmission. 

While the petrol motor is sprightly in the Elantra, it's the diesel which is more fun to drive with oodles of torque on offer. It does have a fair bit of turbo-lag, but once you are on the move, the performance from the engine is simply excellent. The powerband is wide, and it does not force you into downshifting even while the speed drops significantly. The driveability of the engine is superb! 

Although smooth most of the times, the automatic transmission on both petrol and diesel variants feels a little bit sluggish when you thrash it. The manual on the other hand is slick and precise with short and accurate throws. 


Engine Performance

  • Acceleration

    The acceleration on the Elantra is impressive, especially the diesel version. It has oodles of torque.

  • Top Speed

    The Hyundai Elantra feels composed at speeds of over 150km/h. The petrol version has a top speed of 195km/h while the diesel tops out at 190km/h.

  • In Gear Acceleration

    The in-gear acceleration of the Elantra is good. The diesel has a fair bit of turbo-lag while the automatic gearbox does not feel quick enough during instantaneous throttle inputs.

  • Gearbox

    The manual gearbox is slick while the automatic transmission offers seamless and smooth gearshifts.

  • Power

    The 1.8-litre petrol engine on the Elantra develops 149.5PS @ 6,500 rpm. The diesel version comes powered by a 1.6-litre engine producing 128PS @ 4,000 rpm.

  • Torque

    The petrol motor produces 181Nm @ 4,700 rpm The diesel mill develops 265Nm of torque between 1,900 - 2,750 rpm.

  • NVH Levels

    The NVH levels are well-contained, and there's hardly any engine vibration, tyre noise etc filtering into the cabin of the Elantra

Braking Safety

First things first. Handling is not Elantra's forte. It's suspension is on the softer side, meaning it is tuned for a comfortable ride over enthusisatic cornering antics. It tends to wallow on speeds over 130km/h, but that said, it is not feel completely disconnected. The steering, although it lacks feel, is direct. The handling is also predictable. Disc brakes on all four wheel means it's braking is excellent. 

Safety net on the car includes multiple airbags, vehicle stability management, ESP,  ABS with EBD, hill assist control etc.

Brakes and Wheels

  • Handling
