Hyundai Launches 2019 Elantra, Prices Start at Rs 15.89 Lakh
The 2019 Hyundai Elantra comes with a 2-litre petrol engine with a choice of 6-speed auto or manual transmissions.
The 2019 Hyundai Elantra has been launched at a starting price of Rs 15.89 lakh. The car has been given a complete makeover and now comes only with one engine option – the 2-litre, four-cylinder, naturally aspirated petrol motor.
The Hyundai Elantra will be available in four variants, with a base manual transmission option, a mid-variant automatic or manual and a top-spec automatic-only option.
Prices of 2019 Hyundai Elantra
- Hyundai Elantra S: Rs 15.89 lakh
- Hyundai Elantra SX: Rs 18.49 lakh
- Hyundai Elantra SX AT: Rs 19.49 lakh
- Hyundai Elantra SX(O) AT: Rs 20.39 lakh
While the car gets completely new styling, that kind of takes away from Hyundai’s fluidic form. Where the earlier Elantra was all smooth flowing curves, this one is all angular cuts and slashes. It looks inspired by Audi and Lexus designs from certain angles.
The big news is the discontinuation of the 1.6-litre diesel engine in the Elantra. Instead, it only gets a 2-litre naturally aspirated petrol motor that puts out 152 bhp of power and 192 Nm of torque. It comes with a six-speed manual or six-speed torque converter automatic transmission only. This engine is BS-6 compliant. Claimed fuel efficiency is 14.6 Kmpl.
The car has been updated in terms of safety specs as well. All variants get six airbags as standard, along with parking sensors, ABS with EBD, speed warnings, seat belt warnings and speed-sensing locks. The SX and SX(O) variants also get a reverse camera, while the top-spec gets front sensors as well.
The SX(O) variant also features full LED headlamps and DRLs while the other variants get regular projector headlamps. A sunroof is offered on the SX and SX(O) models.
Hyundai is offering its Bluelink connectivity system on the new Elantra, where users can keep track of some 34 car functions through a mobile app. This comes on the SX and SX(O) variants.
Besides that the top-spec model also features wireless charging, USB sockets, push button start, remote keyless entry, handsfree boot opening and dual-zone climate control. The base model gets only manual air-conditioning.
The new Hyundai Elantra competes with the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla Altis and Skoda Octavia in the same price segment. While the Toyota and Skoda cars are slightly more expensive, the Civic is its biggest competitor on price and features.
