2019 Hyundai Elantra Design

The 2019 Hyundai Elantra facelift packs a sharper styling with an all-LED headlamp cluster. At the rear, there are redesigned taillamps while the number plate is moved from the boot lid to the bumper. The alloy wheels get a new design, but at 16-inch, they haven’t gotten bigger or smaller compared to the outgoing Hyundai Elantra.

 

Hyundai Elantra Interior

 

Inside, the cabin gets a dual-tone black and beige theme compared to the black interiors of the outgoing model.

The car is available in blue, white, silver, black and red colour options.

2019 Hyundai Elantra Engine

The 2019 Hyundai Elantra is powered by the BS6 version of the existing  2.0-litre petrol engine. The engine’s output remains intact at 152PS (@6200RPM) and 192Nm (@4000RPM) of power and torque, respectively. This engine continues to be available with a 6-speed manual transmission in the S and SX variants and with a 6-speed automatic transmission (torque converter) in the SX and the SX(O) variants. As per ARAI, this engine claims to deliver 14.6kmpl of fuel efficiency regardless of the transmission.

Elantra Engine

The biggest change in the powertrain department is the departure of the 1.6-litre diesel engine. Making it BS6 compliant would’ve most likely shot its price tag through the roof. In the same segment, the Toyota Corolla Altis, Skoda Octavia and Honda Civic are all available with a BS4 diesel engine option.

It remains to be seen if Hyundai has plans to bring the diesel Elantra back. If it does, the updated Elantra may get a more powerful version of the Kia Seltos 1.5-litre BS6 diesel engine.

2019 Hyundai Elantra Features

On the feature front, the top variant of 2019 Hyundai Elantra continues to offer ventilated and 10-way power-adjustable seats, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple Carplay, electrically-operated sunroof, dual-zone climate control with rear AC vents and cruise control.

 

The notable additions include:

  • Wireless phone charger
  • 8-speaker setup (2 more than before)
  • Premium Infinity sound system
  • Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
  • Bluelink Internet-connected features
  • Front parking sensors

 

On the safety front, the Elantra continues to offer ABS, 6 airbags, electronic stability program, and hill-start assist.
