Hyundai Motor Company, South Korea’s largest automaker has unveiled the sixth edition Elantra at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
The first Elantra was introduced more than 25 years ago and has sold more than 10 million units since then. The sixth generation takes forward Hyundai’s Fluidic design language.
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.
Once you step into the car, you are greeted by a 4.2 inch TFT LCD Instrument display. The buttons are laid out in a horizontal design and the car is fitted with modern day technology.
The 2017 model has an integrated memory system for the power driver seat and side mirrors, dual automatic temperature control, auto defogging system along with auto-dimming rear view mirror.
The Elantra will have a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 147 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 132 lb. ft. of torque at 4,500 rpm. This engine will be available with six speed manual and automatic transmission.
Drivers will get three driving modes: Eco, Normal or Sport. All of these will offer different performances based on the driver’s need.
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.
