New Hyundai Elantra officially unveiledMarch 18, 2020
As promised, the novelty was presented on March 17. After the upgrade, the car took over some of the features of the Sonata business sedan. The new Elantra will be the clear leader in its class.
On the eve of the presentation of the new generation Korean Hyundai Elantra sedan. The car has learned a lot of technology, and is also ahead of its main competitors – Honda Civic, Mazda 3 and Toyota Corolla. Despite the universal popularity of crossovers, Hyundai decided to continue the modernization of the sedan line. And after the updated Sonata, a new Elantra appeared. Thanks to the use of the new platform, the car became 50 mm longer, and its wheelbase stretched 25 mm.
The silhouette of the car turned out to be very interesting – in the front and side parts we see smoothed corners, and in the back of the car the opposite picture is observed. And if at first it was difficult to imagine such an option, then after the official show the car looks stylish and modern. Designers managed to get a completely new appearance due to a combination of two factors – an increased length and a shorter front overhang. Hyundai said that the new product can even be called a four-door coupe. In this case, the sloping shape of the roof does not affect the space for the rear passengers. The developers paid most attention to car technologies.
It is noteworthy that already in the basic version, the novelty will receive an 8.0-inch multimedia complex with support for the functionality of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Elantra was the first car in its class to receive such functionality. But the maximum configuration gets a 10.3-inch display. Moreover, using Bluetooth it will be possible to access all the digital sensors of the car and read information from them. This approach makes the novelty innovative in its class. The dashboard is made in digital form – access to it is possible via Bluetooth.
The new Elantra receives a large number of electronic assistants – these include automatic braking and lane control, adaptive cruise control, and a blind spot monitoring system.
For the first time in the history of Elantra, a hybrid version of the engine will appear – it is based on a 1.6-liter engine and an electric motor with a total output of 139 hp. Also, the current version of the power plant will be available to customers – this is a 2.0-liter engine with 147 hp. In the future, Hyundai may equip the new product with a powerful version of the N-Line. Production of a new car will start this fall, prices will be announced closer to the start of sales.
