The all-new Elantra, a compact sedan which completes Hyundai Motor Company Australia’s line-up in the small segment, is now starting to arrive in showrooms.
All-new Elantra demonstrates Hyundai’s ‘New Thinking. New Possibilities’ philosophy, delivering advanced safety technology, an efficient powertrain and contemporary styling.
Designed at Hyundai's North American Design Centre in Irvine California, Elantra exemplifies Hyundai’s ‘Fluidic Sculpture’ design philosophy. Creating the illusion of constant motion, flowing lines with a strong undercut feature are contrasted with muscular wheel arches and a seamless roofline. The result is a sleek aerodynamic on-road stance. Hyundai’s signature hexagonal front grille and swept-back headlights give Elantra a compact athletic face.
Inside the all-new Elantra, Hyundai’s expertise in interior design and packaging are evident. The all new interior concept is called ‘Wind Craft’, a dynamic and futuristic direction which informs a striking and stylish cockpit, with a bold metal effect garnish originating at the crash pad and flowing to the console in a sculptured airstream-like contour. The combination piano-black and chrome finishes add a quality, high-tech feel to the interior of the new Elantra – Hyundai Australia.
The new Elantra will be available with a 1.8 Litre MPI powertrain in three trim levels - Active, Elite and Premium mated with a 6-speed manual (Active only) or 6-speed automatic transmission.
Note: The full press kit will be made available at the Australian press launch and the 2011 Australian International Motor Show
