Top 20 standard features available in all-new Hyundai Elantra, priced at Rs.12.99 Lakh for petrol, 14.8 Lakh for Diesel
The sixth generation Hyundai Elantra officially entered Indian market yesterday and brought together loads of interesting stuff to talk about. Built around a new lighter platform with reduced kerb weight increased strength and torsional rigidity, the new Elantra adapts ‘Dynamic Precision’ cues following the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language with sharper and aerodynamic-efficient design. It enables the D-segment sedan to achieve a best-in-class drag coefficient as low as 0.29.
The other telling-factors new Hyundai Elantra has are the freshly laid out dashboard and interior design. Alongside being longer, wider and shorter than the outgoing model, the 2016 Hyundai Elantra has a wide range of equipment available and here we have listed the top 20 standard features for our viewers’ better understanding:
Hyundai has taken the safety quotient seriously and just like any of its segment rivals made the dual airbags standard across all variants. While the driver and co-passenger will be protected by airbags in all grades of the Elantra, the top-spec models emphasise the commitment to safety and will delightfully be offered with six airbags.
2. ABS and EBD:
Another primary standard feature Hyundai Elantra possesses is ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) with EBD (Electronic Brake-force Distribution). The EBD assists in the amount of force sent to each wheel during braking depending on the road surface, vehicle speed, etc.
3. Automatic Headlight Control:
The photoelectric sensor embedded in the instrument panel detects the lighting conditions and turns on the headlamps automatically. This substantially avoids collision when a driver forgets to switch them on or when conditions get worse during driving.
4. Front and Rear Disc Brakes:
The disc brakes up front and at the rear allow for additional stopping power. Combined with the ABS and EBD technologies, they make the biggest difference between avoiding fatal injuries and coming out unscathed in the scenario of a crash especially in higher speeds. Hyundai Elantra gracefully has these basic features offered as standard fitment.
5. Halogen Projector Lamps:
The projector headlamps offer better visibility and long range driving confidence to the driver. The new generation Hyundai Elantra comes equipped with this technology in the lower-level variants while the top-of-the-range models get the upmarket HID (High-intensity discharge) lamps.
6. Gunmetal Finished Alloy Wheels with Silica Tyres:
Hyundai was well-aware of the influence a set of wheels has on the visuals of a car. Both the front and rear Silica tyres are of 205 / 60 R16 in sizes as the 16-inch alloy wheels are finished in Gunmetal. The wheels enhance the premium appeal of the new Elantra which in itself already a stylish car on its own rights.
7. Premium Black Interiors:
The interiors are a complete contrast to the preceding model and features a new design inspired from the Sonata and the upcoming Tucson SUV with new controls, dials and a fresh centre console. They are topped off by the standard black premium interiors throughout the range while the top-spec versions get leather upholstery and electrically adjustable ventilated driver’s seat.
8. Driver Seat Height Adjustment:
The South Korean automaker was diligent enough in offering the standard features. For different physique and height of the drivers, the seat height adjustment has been made available in all trims. Worry about being too tall or too short? This feature will make you feel at home in the cockpit.
9. Rear Defogger:
The defogger is an essential feature in any car which helps in clearing the condensed and frosty air from the cabin. The rear defogger will clear the rear glass panel of mist and enables you to see through IRVM (Inside Rear View Mirror) properly.
10. Rear AC Vents:
For the convenience of the rear passengers, Hyundai will sell the new Elantra with rear AC vents as standard element. The occupants can manually adjust the cooling air coming at them using the adjustable vents or can shut them if not needed.
11. Tilt Steering:
Tilt steering is another ride enhancing feature Hyundai will be offering with the new Elantra. The steering wheel can be adjusted as per the requirements of the driver and alongside the driver seat height adjustment standard feature, it is possible for the driver to get comfortable in the sedan the way he/she wants it to be.
12. Touchscreen Stereo with Bluetooth:
The five-inch touchscreen system supports MP3 and USB connectivity besides Bluetooth accessibility. You can play songs, attend calls and do other functions right from your phone on the infotainment system via Bluetooth.
13. Steering Mounted Audio and Phone Controls:
The three-spoke steering wheel has buttons to control audio and phone. With the push of a button, the changes will be displayed on the touchscreen, five or eight inch according to the trim, and makes the driver fully-focussed on maneuvering rather than having to using his hands to change programs on the centre console.
14. Cooled Glovebox:
Glovebox when equipped with a cooler helps in keeping a drink cold or any item that has to be kept chilled. It is an essential feature on a long journey where the food items needs preserving.
15. Sunglass Holder:
In a hot and sweltering country like India, wearing sunglasses can sometimes be fruitful. Hyundai did not forget to make this much-needed feature available in the Elantra as standard.
16. Electrically Adjustable ORVMs with Turn Indicators:
The painstaking process of lowering the windows down and having to position the wing mirrors on either side is long gone as Hyundai has given the electrical adjustment for Outside Rear View Mirrors as standard across all the nine grades of the Elantra.
17. Front and Rear Power Windows:
This is another basic feature anyone would expect to be made available in the cars owned. The front and rear power windows can be flicked up or down with the touch of a button.
18. Front and Rear Centre Armrest with Cup holders:
2016 Hyundai Elantra comes with cubby holes and necessary storage bins. In addition to them, there is centre armrest at front and rear. The occupants can rest their hand during long drives and while cruising amidst the cup holder keeping in position of the beverage items.
19. Tinted Glass:
Tinted glass protects the passengers from getting baked in the sunlight and more crucially doesn’t allow the cabin to get too hot even when the Air Conditioning is not turned on.
20. 3 Years Unlimited KM Warranty:
The new Hyundai Premium Assurance Program offers class-best 3 year unlimited kilometre warranty with services including free maintenance for 3 yrs/30,000 km, 3 year roadside assistance, 3 updates on Map Care ans as many times customers’ ‘home visit’.
