Hyundai Elantra hybrid didn’t stopping by COVID 2019 pulling the covers off the all-new 2021 Elantra compact sedan.
Streamlined forms from a coupe sedan, a minimalist-style interior, and maximum privacy on the engines.
Hyundai officially unveils its all-new 2021 Elantra and Elantra hybrid to the public via an online launch event. The all-new vehicle now features a sleeker yet angular design with a new large parametric front grille being the highlight of the vehicle
Hyundai explains this as “having three lines that meet at one point.” According to them, this formation is a “challenge” since it has been traditionally avoided when designing a car.
It’s how they describe Elantra’s cockpit–which they say is based around a driver-centric layout.
According to Hyundai, this “experience” offers “low and wide structures that go from the door and connect all the way to the center console”.
Meanwhile, “the large interface consists of two harmoniously integrated displays that elevate the racing-inspired feel of the car”.
Racy and aggressive design:
The exterior of the new generation Elantra, the seventh to be exact, is rather racy , as evidenced by a side enriched by precious play of light in which the dynamic upright rear pillar and the hint of spoilers on the tail stand out. The front boasts optical groups that give grit to the whole and a grid influenced by the design of the Sonata. The characteristic alloy wheels complete the picture.
Interior without frills:
Based on the photos the vehicle will come with a black and gray themed interior with a long vent themed garnish cutting cross the dashboard. The top of the line variant will come with two 10.25-inch screens that act as both the infotainment and information display. Lower trim-levels will get a smaller infotainment system and a traditional set of gauges.
The new engines:
At its launch, Hyundai’s all-new compact sedan is powered by the Kona’s 2.0-liter Atkinson Cycle engine with 147 horsepower 179 Nm of torque. This is mated to the in-house developed continuously variable transmission called IVT. More importantly, it debuts a gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain option for the first time. The Elantra Hybrid pairs a 1.6-liter Atkinson-cycle engine with an electric motor. Combined, it makes 139 horsepower and 264 Nm of torque. This engine is mated to a 6-speed dual clutch automatic.
While there is no official word yet if Hyundai Philippines will bring in the 7th generation Elantra into the country, it is not clear what units we will find here in Philippines, so we have to wait until March 17th.
