- Elantra facelift likely to be launched by end of 2020
- The model will receive visual and feature updates
The upcoming Hyundai Elantra facelift has been spotted testing in India once again. Spy images reveal a test-mule of the facelifted Elantra that was spotted on the roads of Hyderabad. The updated Elantra was unveiled in August last year.
Updates to the exterior of the Hyundai Elantra facelift will include the signature cascading grille design, flanked by LED headlamps on either side. Also on offer will be a redesigned front bumper and triangular shaped fog lamps. The side profile of the model will receive a new design for the alloy wheels while the posterior will receive new LED tail-lights and a refreshed bumper that will house the number plate recess, unlike the outgoing model that has it positioned on the boot lid.
Inside, the new Hyundai Elantra facelift is expected to come equipped with an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone integration, wireless charging and additional safety features such as autonomous braking, lane departure warning with active lane control and a blind-spot monitoring system.
Engine specifications of the Hyundai Elantra facelift are likely to remain unchanged although they will be updated to become BS-VI compliant. These engine options include a 2.0-litre petrol unit and a 1.6-litre diesel unit. The facelifted Elantra is likely to be launched in India by the end of 2020. Once launched, the model will rival against the likes of the new Honda Civic, Skoda Octavia and the Toyota Corolla Altis.
