Hyundai Teases Next-Gen 2021 Elantra - Reveal On March 17

Hyundai just teased the upcoming next-generation 2021 Elantra sedan. The complete reveal will happen on March 17, 2020. The image and video teasers reveal that it’ll have a lot of cuts and creases on the side panels and a fastback roofline. Hyundai gave the Sonata full-size sedan a similar sloping roof treatment and it’s now carrying over to the mid-size sedan.

 

The cabin gets similar split 2-spoke steering as we’ve seen in the next-generation i20 and Creta. The gear lever also looks very similar to what we’ve seen in the 2020 Creta. The rear, however, looks a lot busier than the Sonata’s.

The first examples of Fluidic design were too busy and didn’t age well. Their successors toned it down a bit and buyers accepted the European touch in Hyundai’s design language. For the 2021 Elantra, Hyundai once again seems to be going overboard with the lines. Cars with a busy design language don’t age that well. Meanwhile, cars with simple, straight lines may not look all that special when new but they also don’t look old several years after their inception.

The Elantra recently received a mid-life update in India and lost its diesel engine in the process. The next-generation Elantra is expected to come to India sometime in 2022 to allow the 2020 facelift some time to settle in before its departure.
