Hyundai India is all set to fire in the upper end of the sedan segments. The South Korean company launched the Sonata sedan and is all set to launch the new Elantra in India.
The Elantra will make a comeback in the India market after missing the previous generation. Hyundai had launched the ELantra in India in 2004 and then later discontinued it in 2008 completely.
The fourth generation was not launched in India as the market did not very accept the Elantra. Hyundai had Elantra in both petrol and diesel engine options.
The 2012 Auto Expo again saw the New Generation Elantra make its comeback to the Indian market. Hyundai showcased the 1.6 litre with 130 PS version of the Elantra Sedan. The design continues Hyundai’s “fluidic sculpture” styling theme first seen in the 2011 Sonata.
When launched the Elantra will have to compete with the likes of VW Jetta, Skoda Laura, Chevrolet Cruze,Toyota Corolla and Renault Fluence.
