2019 Hyundai Elantra Sport gets tweaked suspension system and sporty exteriors, interiors
Hyundai Elantra is one of the popular D-Segment sedans in the Indian market. The premium sedan takes on the likes of Toyota Corolla Altis and Skoda Superb in the Indian market.
The Elantra is global car and is available in many international markets. In many markets a performance version of the Elantra is also available, which is known as the Elantra Sport. Hyundai recently revealed the new version of the vehicle and here is all the details of it.
The new Elantra Sport has been revealed in the Korean market and looks very sporty. It gets a striking new face with an all-new grille and new headlamps. The sharply creased grille makes the Elantra Sport very sharp and it also gets new wheels, a body kit and updated interiors.
The grille in particular gets sharp edges and it is a single piece unit now, which makes it look quite bigger than the regular version of the vehicle. On the lower half, the Elantra also gets triangular fog lamps, which are in sync with the overall looks of the vehicle. The new body kit adds a front and rear bumper splitter and side skirts.
On the inside, the vehicle gets bright red leather seats and even the door trims are now in red leather. The steering wheel gets a red highlight while the centre console has been updated to become more sporty. No other changes have been done to the interior of the vehicle and it offers the same features and equipment as the regular Elantra.
On the mechanical front, the Elantra Sport remains unchanged. In the international markets, the Elantra offers a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine that generates a maximum of 206 Bhp and 264 Nm of peak torque. No changes have been done to the engine.
It also gets a six-speed manual transmission and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The rear suspension has been upgraded to a multilink one whereas the regular Elantra offers a torsion beam. The wheels have been upgraded to 18-inchers that are wrapped in 225mm cross section tyres. There are slim chances of the Elantra Sport being launched in India but we sure will get the updated Elantra next year with updated exteriors.
