India-Bound Hyundai Elantra Facelift Leaked Ahead Of Official Debut


The design of Elantra facelift model took inspiration from Sonata and the front gets new signature grille of Hyundai along with new headlamps

The sixth generation Hyundai Elantra made its global debut in 2015 and the model is facing stiff competition from new rivals. The Korean manufacturer is currently working on a mid-life facelift for Elantra. Hyundai is expected to reveal Elantra facelift soon and the model has been spotted without camouflage at a yard.

The design of new model took inspiration from Sonata and the front gets new signature grille of Hyundai. The headlamp design is sharper and extends towards front grille, while the lower part of the bumper has a chrome line running between fog lamps, which gives the impression of much wider car than it is. The Korean manufacturer has also given a new design for fog lamps.

Like most of the new generation Hyundai models, the company has given air-pocket on the side of fog lamps to channel air-flow towards tyres which reduces drag. Overall, the front design gives a sporty look for the Elantra. The side design of Elantra appears to be carried over from current model but the company has given new alloy wheels.

Like front, the rear of Elantra also gets a major makeover as the company has given new LED tail lamps and boot get lip spoiler. The lower part of the bumper is completely new and they have also given a new design for the number plate holder. The Elantra facelift also gets reflectors integrated into the bumper.

The interior of Elantra is expected to continue its current design theme but we can expect minor changes like new colour theme and some new features like wireless charging, as it is available on most of the new models. The long list of features list includes touch screen infotainment system, climate control, ventilated seats, cruise control and more.

We are also expecting Hyundai to increase safety features on Elantra to compete against new models. Hyundai will also focus on improving ride and handling even though the current model is much better than old Elantras. The engine lineup will be carried over from previous model and India launch is expected to happen in 2019.
