Dynamic Precision – The new 2.0 Fluidic Design Language
Dynamic Precision is the new design concept for the 6 th generation Elantra. The
completely redesigned all-new Elantra delivers an athletic presence from every angle.
Its prominent hexagonal front grille dominates an edgier front end and is framed by
striking headlights. Front bumper air vents and the available LED daytime running lights
provide more aggressive styling cues, while the rear bumper creates a sportier stance.
Available High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights (for Elantra Sport only) not only
provide sophisticated styling, but also offer optimized illumination for the bends and
curves on your path.
The side profile is designed with a sense of sporty and coupe like silhouette while the
rear is extremely impactful with eye-catching split type LED Tail lamps. The
aerodynamic profile of the car along with innovative wheel air curtain, a smoother
under-body structure with undercover applied to the entire floor plan and other
advanced design package technologies have resulted in the Best-in- Class drag
coefficient of 0.27.
The new A-Pillar design and attention to detail makes the interior more spacious and
comfortable. The new cockpit is also ergonomically designed with multimedia and
control buttons placed strategically for the driver. The driver-centric horizontal crash pad
layout with T-shaped centre fascia and a subtle tilt towards driver’s seat ensures
minimal driver movement for comfortable and safe driving. It also boasts the biggest
cargo space in its class with a loading capacity of 407 liters.
New Powerful Powertrain - Nu 2.0L MPI and Gamma 1.6L Turbo GDI
The all-new Elantra comes in two powertrain options – Nu 2.0L MPI and Gamma 1.6L
Turbo GDI. Powering the Elantra 2.0L MPI Executive and 2.0L MPI Dynamic is a 2.0L
4-cylinder engine, which delivers 152 PS at 6,200 rpm and 192Nm of torque at 4,000
rpm with exceptional fuel efficiency. The Nu 2.0L MPI is paired with Hyundai’s 6-speed
automatic transmission. The Elantra Sport that is mated with to an ECOSHIFT 7-speed
dual-clutch transmission on the other hand is powered by the Gamma 1.6 Turbo GDI (T-
GDI) four-cylinder engine that generates 204 PS at 6,000 rpm and 265Nm of torque at
High-Strength Steel with the use of 53% of Advanced High-Strength Steel
The Elantra is now reinforced with 53% of Advanced High-Strength Steel (an increase
of 32% as compared to the previous model) providing improved stiffness at a lower
body weight. This increased utilisation results in a 29.5 percent stiffer torsional rigidity
and 25.3 percent greater bending strength, which bring improvements in vehicle ride
and handling, quietness, durability and driving performance.
Furthermore, the new Elantra increased structural adhesive application 40 times at
higher stress points on the chassis and to reinforce welding areas. A component often
found in aerospace applications, these structural adhesives also contribute to improved
NVH and vehicle dynamics due to extra stiffness in the chassis. Hyundai engineers
focused on these enhancements to develop a more rigid body structure in an effort to
target top safety ratings by the IIHS and NHTSA.
Comprehensive Safety Features
In addition to the strengthened chassis, the Elantra makes structural improvements to
the front side members that are now a hexagonal design and the dash-to- cowl
connection has also been reinforced. The rear doors also feature dual impact beams.
A six airbag system is standard, along with Electronic Stability Control, Vehicle Stability
Management, Traction Control, and ABS. Additional safety technologies include Blind
Spot Detection with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist (for Elantra Sport
only), a rear-view camera, Parking Guidance System, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System
and Hill-start Assist Control.
Intelligent Technology and Convenient Features
The Elantra truly advances ahead with innovative technology that enhances driver
confidence and convenience. The new Elantra’s segment-exclusive Hands-free Smart
Trunk, allows Elantra drivers to conveniently open the boot if their hands are full by
simply approaching the rear of the vehicle with the key fob in a purse or pocket. An
audible beep will sound three times, and the boot will automatically open, making it easy
to place items in the cargo area.
Driver’s experience is also enhanced with the new Elantra’s convenient features such
as the Auto Cruise Control which makes long distance driving more comfortable as well
as the 3 different drive modes namely Eco, Normal and Sport modes that allow the
driver to adapt the throttle, transmission and steering to their driving needs. Apart from
that, upgrades in this new model include a multimedia system that is equipped with
Android Auto and Apple Car Play while the Elantra Sport gets more intelligent features
such as an Auto Defogging System, Dual Zone Auto Climate Control and Rain-Sensing

passenger vehicles. A 24-hour road assist service is also now available to new and
