We earlier reported you that Hyundai has started the teasing game with the 2016 Elantra and it is supposed to make its debut at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show in November. But prior to that, it has been snapped completely undisguised at the South Korean automajor's production facility in Korea. The spy images reveal that 2016 Hyundai Elantra would carry forward the company's evolutionary Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy.
The front fascia of 2016 Hyundai Elantra flaunts sleeker projector headlamps, which compliment the broader 6-point grille. The lower fascia gets boomerang stuff with round shaped foglamps. As for side profile, there is a strong shoulder line flowing from the wheel arch. In addtion, the C-Pillar designing is new and 16-inch alloy wheels are newly-designed. At the rear end, there is the massive LED tail-lamp cluster with a sculpted spoiler and a restyled bumper. It is being learnt that 2016 Hyundai Elantra is being touted as the most aero-efficient vehicle in its segment due to its extremely low drag coefficient of 0.27 Cd.
Talking about the interior cabin of 2016 Elantra, it features a toned-down design, with designing inspired from the 2015 Hyundai Sonata and the recently unveiled 2016 Hyundai Tucson. It gets a 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel, new instrument dials, dull silver garnish on the dashboard and pedals with aluminum inserts. Additionally, there is also an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system at the centre console with Bluetooth compatibility. The new Elantra would be offered in both petrol and diesel guises. The petrol variants could be powered by the Tucson-sourced 1.6L T-GDi motor which generates 175bhp, while paired to the company's new 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. On the other hand, the Sonata-sourced new 1.7L motor could be at the helm of affairs in the diesel variants, while being paired with the new 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
