  • The much-awaited launch of Hyundai Elantra Facelift is due in September

  • The vehicle gets sharper exterior features and a refurbished cabin.

  • There is no diesel variant of the Hyundai Elantra Facelift on offer.

Hyundai Elantra Facelift is finally launching in September 2019. Apart from its improved exterior styling and a remodeled cabin, the upgraded Hyundai Elantra will get a 2.0L BSVI-compliant petrol engine. There is no diesel variant of the Hyundai Elantra Facelift. The BS IV-compliant engine will deliver the power of 152hp and mates with a 6-speed manual transmission and Torque Converter auto-transmission system.

The reason for the decision to discontinue the diesel engine is the reluctance on the part of sedan buyers to opt for diesel variants. The sales statistics from April to July of various sedans explain this decision better.

One can expect a diesel version of the Hyundai Elantra in the future. Hyundai, with its wait-and-watch approach, has already stated that it will introduce BSVI-compliant diesel vehicles after the availability of BDVI-grade fuel throughout India.

The existing 128hp 1.6L diesel engine available on the Hyundai Elantra, Hyundai Verna, and Hyundai Creta is being phased out. The new 1.5L diesel engine has made its debut with the Kia Seltos. This engine, available in two variants of 90hp power and 115hp power will power Hyundai and Kia diesel vehicles in India in the future.

The slowdown in the Indian automobile market has affected the sedan segment, but the introduction of Hyundai Elantra Facelift can change things, as it will be available in the price band of Rs 14 to 19 lakhs.
