Recently, Hyundai launched the Verna facelift in India amidst the nation-wide lockdown. Now, the South-Korean auto giant has launched the 2021 Elantra, where it's called Avante, at a starting price of KRW 15.31 million. Converted to our Indian National Rupee, the figure comes around to Rs. 9.52 lakh, which is close to the starting price of Verna facelift and new Creta in our country.
The 2020 Hyundai Elantra will be offered with an option of LPG as well in SOuth Korea.
According to Hyundai, they have already received 16,489 bookings for the car in a time span of just 13 days, starting from March 25 to April 6. However, 10,058 bookings for the car were received on March 25 itself. The new Hyundai Elantra is offered in a total of 4 trims, namely Style, Smart, Modern, and Inspiration. There will be, however, just one engine on offer - 1.6L petrol with a rated output of 140 PS/166 Nm.
The new Hyundai Elantra looks scintillating from every angle. It gets a swooping roofline and a highly raked C-pillar that merges in the trunk lid to give the car a dynamic look. On the front, it features upswept LED headlamps flanked on either side of the parametric-jewel pattern grille. It also gets the sharp design for the tail lamps, which are connected to each other via a LED bar to form an ‘H’ shape. Also, the 17-inch diamond-cut dual-tone alloy wheels are imposing to look at.
2021 Hyundai Elantra features uniframe housing for the instrument cluster and infotainment display.
Inside, the interior is highlighted by the unibody housing for the 10.25-inch virtual instrument console and the 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment unit. The instrument console on the new Elantra is slightly tilted towards the driver by 10 degrees. The new Hyundai Elantra also gets a 10-way adjustable driver seat, 64 colours options for ambient lighting, 8-speaker Bose sound system, rear-seat heating, and ventilated front seats. The new sedan is expected to make its India debut by mid-2021. Until then, Hyundai is planning to update the outgoing Elantra with the 1.5L turbo-diesel engine seen on the Verna facelift.
