The swashbuckling mid-size Hyundai Elantra is getting ready for a facelift and has been snapped testing in the US. The car is running around completely camouflaged and there is not much you can make out from under that veil.

However, the curves appear to have been toned down and Hyundai may lend it a more mature look this time. The roofline is sporty and coupe-like just like the current version and there is a large air dam with a possibly-smaller grille. The headlamps, though hidden appear to be smaller.

However, the interiors are all-new, drastically different and muted. There is a new dashboard, three spoke steering wheel and that infotainment system. The beige-grey dual tone interior theme looks dull and there are a lot of silver outlines running around the dash.
