The spyshots seem to be have taken at the production line that give us an up and close look at the exterior and interior of the car. The Elantra sports sleeker and lower headlamps, a large hexagonal chrome grille (like the Genesis), DRLs and boomerang-shaped fog lamp cluster. The silhouette boasts of a funky pattern for the alloy wheels and a steeper C-Pillar. The rear shows the new tail lamps integrated with LED units. Overall, Hyundai has continued to borrow design cues from the current model of the Elantra, while sticking to their Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language.
The cabin of the car also displays the company's futuristic design approach with the latest equipment and accessories. Official details are not available yet, but the top-end versions are expected to get features like blind spot detection with rear cross traffic alert and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection. A huge display can be seen in the picture, which is expected to be an eight-inch touch screen system that will be compatible with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
An automatic gearbox can be seen, which is likely Hyundai's six-speed automatic. However, reports suggest that a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission might be paired to the new 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder mill that will churn out 175bhp of power. The conventional six-speed manual gearbox will be offered and power will be sent to the front wheels. More specifications will be revealed as more details emerge.
Hyundai will reveal the vehicle at the Los Angeles Motor Show in November this year. This is the sixth-generation of the Elantra that will share a modified platform with Hyundai's dedicated hybrid and Kia's Forte. We can expect the car to be showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo and launched for the Indian market as it goes on sale in the global market.
