Hyundai officially introduced the current generation Elantra in 2016 and the sedan is performing well in the market but the D-Segment is not so popular these days because of the rise of SUVs in the same price market.

The Elantra now comes with front parking sensors, emergency stop signal, wireless charging, sliding front armrest and AutoLink connectivity, but these features are available only on the top end SX(O).
