The new model sports a large chrome hexagonal grille, which has become a standard in new Hyundai models.

The headlamps include day-time running LED strips and the forward sloping bonnet along with large wheel arches give the Elantra a sporty look.

The 2017 model is longer and wider than the 2016 model. It will be available in eight colours, five of which are new to the model.

The 2017 model certainly has got the looks and credentials to be the market leader in it’s segment.

But it isn’t even 2016 yet, and it is very early to declare it a hit. Who knows, other car companies may come out with something better by then.
