Some other highlighting cosmetic updates to the new Elantra include sportier alloy wheels, new LED taillights along with refreshed graphics.
The new Hyundai Elantra will compete with the segment-leading Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla Altis and Skoda Octavia.
On the inside, the new 2020 Hyundai Elantra is likely to get an 8-inch touchscreen for infotainment system compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, revised multi-functional steering wheel, updated processor among others. Also, it is reported that the facelifted Elantra will more likely to adopt Hyundai’s Blue Link connectivity as seen in the Hyundai Venue.
