Our good friends at MotorBeam have spotted the 2017 Hyundai Elantra in Blue colour option, that’s expected to receive its market launch in India sometime in September-2016.
Spotted somewhere in India wearing very little camouflage, the car is production-ready. Sporting the Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture design is fronted by a bold hexagonal grille, sharp projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights and boomerang shaped foglight enclosures completes the front end design. At the rear of the camo’ed test mule, one might be able to notice the subtle lip spoiler poking out from beneath.
Compared to the existing model, the new sedan longer by 20 mm, wider by 25 mm and taller by 5 mm. On the inside, highlights include hints of the Genesis and Sonata in design with soft-touch materials, dash buttons grouped according to functions and a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with satellite navigation and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration compatibility.
As for powertrain options, the new Elantra is expected to be offered with a 2.0-litre 4 cyl naturally aspirated petrol engine which produces 149 PS (146.90 hp) and 183 Nm of torque, and a 1.6-litre 4 cyl diesel engine developing 136 PS (134.09 hp) and 306 Nm of torque. Transmission options are expected to include a 6-speed manual, a 6-speed automatic and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic.
That class will include D-segment sedan players like the Toyota Corolla, Skoda Octavia, Volkswagen Jetta, Chevrolet Cruze, Renault Fluence, among other players.
