The Elantra facelift has been spied in India. The facelifted variant spied had completely redesigned styling at the front and back though the side profile remains almost the same. While the interiors of the India-spec model hasn’t been spied, based on the international-spec model, expect it to get a new instrument cluster, redesigned AC vents and controls, and a steering wheel that is a direct lift from the Kona EV.
Under the hood, the Elantra is expected to feature the BS6-compliant 1.5-litre diesel powertrain from the Seltos SUV that produces 115PS and 250Nm. Expect Hyundai to tune it to produce more power. The petrol Elantra is likely to chug on with the 2.0-litre unit upgraded to meet BS6-emission norms.
The Elantra facelift is expected to hit showrooms by the end of this year.
