Hyundai India today launched the updated Elantra here with a price range of Rs. 14.13 lakh – Rs. 17.94 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The 2015 model has received some additional features and design updates, though no mechanical changes have been made to the saloon.
Talking about the exterior design, the premium sedan gets a newly-designed front bumper, chrome grille, projector head-lamps with LED light guide, and revised fog-lamps. The side profile of the car gets newly-designed 10-spoke 16-inch alloy wheels, chrome door handles, and moulding on its belt line. The rear profile too looks refreshed with the new two-tone bumper and chrome tipped exhaust in addition to the new LED effect rear combination lamps.
The company has made some revisions inside too; the car now gets all-black interiors, leather seats, metallic scuff plates, aluminium pedal and ergonomically positioned console box with arm rest, and rear AC vents.
As we mentioned above, the vehicle will continue to house the same engine options under the hood – 1.8 Dual VTVT Petrol and 1.6 VGT CRDi Diesel – that also powered the old model. While the petrol engine is good for 147bhp & 178Nm, the diesel unit churns out 126bhp & 260Nm.
On the launch of the 2015 Elantra Mr B S Seo, Managing Director & CEO, HMIL said, “The Elantra has always been the trendsetter in its segment and is now set to offer high standard in the premium segment. The 2015 Elantra will delight our customers with its high-class appeal and agility. Elantra being a global model is Hyundai’s first car and one of only 10 cars in the history of the auto industry to reach over 10 million sales globally.
