After being in the news for the last few days, Hyundai has officially unveiled its facelifted Elantra in South Korea which now comes with a few minor enhancements.
The new car is now an even better looker with the trademark Hyundai Fluidic styling making its eye-catching presence felt. Elantra is also christened as Avante in a few international markets.
The additions to the car include projector lamps, stylish looking Daytime Running Light Strips as well as rear lamps which are a combination of conventional and LED lights. More oomph is added in the form of revised front and rear bumpers, to fit better into the Fluidic cues. The engine grille has been reworked too, with fabulous looking fog lamps.
The rear bumper now sports a black cladding beneath it. A new alloy wheel design has also found its way to the car. We must remark that an already awesome looking car has upped the ante. We like!!
There have been a few changes in the interiors as well. The central air vent has been raised slightly upward so has been the front center armrest. A few inclusions that are done are the rear seat aircon vents, ventilation seats, flexi steering and a Smart Parking Assist System.
A possible powerplant option could be a 1.6 Liter Diesel mill with specs of 128 PS and 279 Nm of torque. With a manual tranny, it is supposed to provide around 18.51 kmpl of fuel efficiency. On the automatic version, it would be a shade lower at 16.1 kmpl.
The new, facelifted Hyundai Elantra could come to India sometime towards the end of 2013 or early 2014. Will it get all these changes or not is not known. We will keep you updated with its possible Indian innings as soon as we come to know about it. Keep tuned to us!!
