2016 Hyundai Elantra, the long awaited midsize sedan from the South Korean carmaker has been finally launched in India. Introduced at a starting price of Rs. 12.99 lakh, the rates go as high as Rs. 19.19 lakh for to the top-of-the-line variant (all prices introductory and ex-showroom, Delhi). Hyundai offers the new-gen Elantra sedan in a total of five variants - S, SX, SX AT, SX(O), SX(O) AT, in both petrol and diesel options. In India, the car will go up against the likes of Skoda Octavia, Toyota Corolla Altis, among others. We even drove the new generation Elantra earlier this year and are pretty convinced it is the best Elantra ever.

Hyundai has extensively worked on the design and styling of the car and the new-gen model looks edgy and bold, compared to the older model. Hyundai has claimed that the new generation model is made of 53 per cent Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) that allows higher structural rigidity. This will improve both the driving comfort and handling. In addition to that, the car is now also 20mm longer and 25mm wider than the previous generation model. So, in terms of dimensions, the new Elantra is 4,610mm in length, 1,800mm in width, and 1,450mm in height and gets a wheelbase of 2,700mm.
