Fluidic Sculpture design philosophy mated with European styling conceived what we know as the Hyundai Elantra. Now, in its sixth generation, the Hyundai Elantra exudes confidence and elegance along with a sporty design. Inside, the elegance continues along with contours and shapes neatly fusing with each other. Powering the premium sedan is a choice of a diesel and petrol engine that are mated to a 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions for both mills. Overall, the fluidic design philosophy of the Korean carmaker looks most proportionate on the Elantra.
The Nu 2.0 L petrol engine is best-in-class as per Hyundai and is a very refined motor with the right balance between power and fuel efficiency
Ventilated and heated front occupant seats are a real relief in case your Hyundai Elantra is parked in the sun
The 6-speed automatic transmissions on both engine options are very poised and there is no or negligible jerkiness one would feel while driving the car
The Hyundai Elantra follows the fluidic sculpture design philosophy that the company has been implementing on all its current products and models for the future. And on the Elantra, this design philosophy looks the most proporationate. The curves and contours fuse beatufully with the headlamps, hexagonal grille and taillamps. This is possibly one of the best looking premium three-boxes in the country.
The dark grey and silver theme on the inside of the Hyundai Elantra brings out the sporty character of the car while looking elegant. Cabin space is more than adequate and four sdults can be in extreme comfort thanks to the dual zone climate control. For the driver, the infotainment system and other equipment towards him/her. This adds to the ease of use. Overall, the interior of the Hyundai Elantra is a wonderful place to be in.
Powering the Hyundai Elantra are two engine options - a 2.0 L Nu petrol and a 1.6 L U2 CRDi diesel. The motor is a completely new one for the Indian automotive industry and generates 150hp max power at 6,200 rpm and 192Nm peak torque at 4,000 rpm. The oil-burner is something we have seen doing duty in other Hyundai cars and like other models, max power generated is 126hp at 4,000 rpm and max torque is at 260Nm from as low as 1,900 rpm and goes up to 2,750 rpm. Overall, both engines are good performers while being frugal.
There are four transmission options available for the petrol and diesel engines - two 6-speed manual and two 6- speed automatic. The manual transmissions are really crisp and gear changes are smooth without any notchiness. In fact, the ratios are also aligned properly on both the engines so that gear changes are not frequent in bumper-to-bumper traffic. As for the automatics, the changes are smooth with no pronounced gear change feel and the ratios for their respective transmissions are placed for maximum fuel efficiency. That said, power is transferred swiftly to the front wheels in case it is needed.
