India is still waiting to get the Elantra facelift, which was introduced in August 2013 in Korea, and the Korean web has come up with the first image of next-generation 2016 Hyundai Elantra. Being codenamed as Hyundai AD - according to several reports - it would be unveiled next month in Korea, while sales slated to commence by mid 2015 in Korea.

2016 Hyundai Elantra, going by the image, is based on a new platform and pays a strong resemblance to the i40 facelift, unveiled in December 2014. However, one can easily differentiate between the two. At the front, it flaunts a huge trapezoidal grille with equally massive airdams and vertical LED daytime running lights. The sedan seems to have grown up as compared to the ongoing fluidic version of the car. In most likelihood, it is being designed at Hyundai's design center in Rüsselsheim, Germany. In India market, Hyundai Elantra is placed in C2 segment of cars and competes with the likes of Toyota Corolla Altis, Skoda Octavia, Chevrolet Cruze, and Volkswagen Jetta.
