New Hyundai Elantra caught testing, coming soon

Hyundai will launch the all new Elantra which is going to be the next big launch from the South Korean car maker after the launch of the all new Sonata in the Indian market.

The Hyundai Elantra has been caught testing once again and we believe it could be in its final stages.

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.

With the Premium segment growing, Hyundai plans to launch new models at every price point. The Verna has been a sales success and is currently the segment leader.

When launched the Elantra will have to compete with the likes of VW Jetta, Skoda Laura, Chevrolet Cruze,Toyota Corolla and Renault Fluence.

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.
