New Hyundai Elantra get Venue like BlueLink suite, price starts Rs 15.89 lakh
Hyundai Elantra facelift has been launched by the South Korean company in the Indian market from Rs 15.89 lakh ex-showroom. However, the current generation car was on sale since 2016, hence an update was required when rivals like Honda Civic, new-gen launched this year, and Skoda Octavia, which received a facelift this year, are relatively new in the segment. This is termed as a mid-life cycle update of the Premium Sedan.
The new Hyundai Elantra is available in three variants – S, SX, and SX(O). However, there is only one engine option with an option to choose from two different gearboxes, 6-speed manual, and 6-speed automatic.
Hyundai Elantra variants and Price:
Elantra S – Rs 15.89 lakh
Elantra SX – Rs 18.49 lakh
SX AT – Rs 19.49 lakh
SX(O) AT – Rs 20.39 lakh
This time, the new Elantra is powered by the 2.0-liter naturally aspirated, in-line 4-cylinder petrol unit. The powerplant is tuned to pump healthy 150bhp and 192Nm twisting force. The engine is paired to a 6-speed manual or 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. This engine is BS6 compliant and offers fuel efficiency of 14.6 kmpl as per ARAI tests. The real-world fuel economy will no way near to this number but about 8 kmpl in mixed driving conditions.
There is no option for diesel engines as the company has decided to completely stop its availability in the D-segment premium sedan. The 1.6-liter 128 bhp engine also does duty on the Creta for all good reasons. It is punchy as well as fuel-efficient as hell.
