Hyundai is all set to launch the facelift of the Elantra in India on Thursday and it’s already given glimpses of what it will look like.
The company has followed their modern day line-up design language and the new Hyundai Elantra facelift will get a new hexagonal grille along with redesigned, triangular shaped headlamp cluster with LED lamps and LED daytime running lights as well.
The tail-lamps witness a major change and have been re-designed in order to sit well with the theme of the overall design. The alloy wheels have been redesigned too and the car gives off a much sharper look with the new creases along the profile and on the bonnet as well.
The company has also revealed that the Elantra will be a connected car, which means that it will come with the Bluelink technology. It will come with 34 Hyundai Blue Link features, out of which 10 features are exclusively India specific. The system also offers to Share My Car feature which allows the car owner (Primary user) to share the Blue Link services with his/her family/friends (Secondary user). Blue Link registered secondary user can use the Blue Link services of Primary user’s car from his mobile app.
The car will also offer a bunch of remote access features like – remote engine on/off, remote climate control, along with remote door lock/unlock, horn honk and light, vehicle status and find my car function. In addition to that, Hyundai has also confirmed that the upcoming Elantra will be equipped with a BSVI compliant petrol engine.
Keeping in mind all the updates, the prices of the Elantra facelift are expected to be higher than what they currently are and go upto Rs 14.5 lakh and since only the petrol will be available for now, this will be very competitive pricing.
