Hyundai has unleashed its latest version of Elantra, the luxury sedan, which has been priced starting from $17,000.
The Elantra launched is now in its 6th generation, sporting Hyundai’s Fluidic 2.0 design language. The Elantra’s biggest transformation has taken place on the front. The sedan now carries big-size angular front grille with chrome accents, along with stylised headlamps.

Elantra comes in petrol and diesel variants. With petrol you get a 2-litre engine, and folks going for the diesel variant get a 1.6-litre VGT CRDi engine. The engine is mated with a 6-speed manual automatic transmission.

The side profile too sports strong lines to give the car a sporty stance. Hyundai Elantra joins the likes of Volkswagen Jetta and the Toyota Corolla Altis in this price bracket and segment.
