Hyundai-Sime Darby Motors (HSDM) has opened its order books for the long awaited, all-new sixth generation Hyundai Elantra ahead of the launch, which is scheduled sometime in June this year. Prices starts at RM120,000 onwards.


The all-new Elantra is available in 3 variants - two normally aspirated 2.0liter varants and a top of the range 1.6liter turbocharged model (photo above) with all the bells and whistles. RM135,000 for the 1.6 Turbo Sport variant, RM120,000 for the 2.0 MPI Executive and RM125,000 for the 2.0 MPI Dynamic variant (pictured below). 

Powering the Elantra 2.0L MPI Executive and 2.0L MPI Dynamic is a Nu 2.0L MPI 4-cyliner engine, which delivers 152 PS at 6,200 rpm and 192Nm of torque at 4,000rpm. Decent numbers for a C-segment 2.0liter car tuned for efficiency in mind. These will most likely be paired with a 6 speed automatic gearbox.
