The Neo Fluidic Hyundai Elantra has been around for quite a while, 2011 to be more precise, and is due for a facelift. Official teaser pictures now reveal that the Korean automaker is prepping the car for its midlife facelift and will soon launch it in the South Korean market.
From the first look, the car has not seen a major design change and follows the fluidic design language embodied by its siblings. What is new though is the front bumper, LED headlamps and a revised tail lamp. The car gets park assist on the feature front and a new two-tone alloy wheels.
In India the car is powered by the 1.6-litre turbo diesel or a 1.8-litre petrol engine making 128PS and 149PS respectively. It is unlikely that there will be any change to the power plant in the facelift. The manual and the automatic transmissions are also expected to be carried forward to the new model.
The Elantra is the best-selling D1 segment sedan in India and has been a successful model for Hyundai around the globe. The facelift will only aid in improving the sales figures further until Toyota and VW bring their next generation D1 segments contenders to India.
