New Hyundai Elantra Is Already Out: Photos and Specs

The new Hyundai Elantra has received a completely redesigned look and an expanded engine range.

Hyundai is quite generous with new products this year. It has already introduced the third-generation i20 hatchback and the updated i30 series, as well as presented the Prophecy concept. Now it is high time for the seventh-generation Hyundai Elantra. The model made its debut at a special event in West Hollywood. Despite the fact that the presentation was held online, the manufacturer revealed all the specifications and features of the new vehicle.

The restyled Hyundai Elantra has moved to a new platform and changed the body shape. It is now characterized as a four-door coupe, rather than a sedan. Compared to its predecessor, the new Elantra is 56 mm longer, 25 mm wider and 20 mm lower. The wheelbase increased by 20 mm and reached 2,720 mm.

In addition to the new body shape, the Elantra has received an unusual bumper, a wide radiator grille with a three-dimensional pattern, upgraded angular headlights and three-sided salients on the sides. The interior has become more spacious and completely different. The most noticeable change here is the «Immersive Cocoon» that separates the driver from the front passenger. The model has also become more technological. Its equipment includes a dashboard with a 10.25-inch screen and a multimedia system with a similar display that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The list of equipment has also expanded, including the Smart Sense security system, a Bose audio system with eight speakers and a digital key, wireless charging and a voice recognition system.
