All-new sixth generation Hyundai Elantra arrives

4 Mar 2016

Hyundai officially announced the arrival of the all-new Elantra earlier today.

With sleek new looks including the now trending air curtains in the front bumper as well as a matured, more Eurocentric overall feel the Elantra is back to win the hearts of buyers in Singapore.

Sporting an Audi-esque hexagonal front grille, the car cuts a classier stance than before and brings Hyundai’s bread and butter sedan closer yet to the looks of European cars. Handsomely sculpted with more angles and creases than the outgoing car, this new Elantra takes on Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language and borrows heavily from its big brother the Sonata.

On top of the poised look that will distinguish the car from traditional Japanese rivals, Hyundai has also taken the liberty to add a generous equipment list to the car. These include folding rear seats, cruise control, blind spot monitor, LED daytime running lights (DRL) and a reverse camera.

Available two trim levels S and Elite, prices begin at $92,999 for the S and $100,999 for the Elite (at 4 Mar 2016). Both will be powered by a 1.6l engine putting out 126 bhp and 155 Nm of torque. 0 to 100 km/h is achieved in 11.6 seconds.

Main differences between the trim levels lie in the options; missing from the entry level S variant are things like blind spot detection, cruise control and leather steering wheel. You also do not get keyless push start, rain sensing wipers or LED DRLs. The driver seat is electric on the Elite only while both models have manually adjusted front passenger seats and no paddle shifters.

Stay tuned as we bring you the full review in just a bit.

Sold my car withing a few days. Fast process. However, be ready for dealers to slash price saying need to change tyre, need to repaint, etc during viewing.
