Hyundai Elantra Review by Expert

Hyundai Elantra Pictures

Hyundai Motors, since its foray into the automotive sector has done very well in manufacturing some tempting mass segment cars. But when it comes to premium cars, it has actually never tasted that sort of ‘caliber’ success, as it has always challenged Maruti Suzuki, and the latter never came up with some apt premium car. And when it came with premium sedan Maruti Kizashi, the consumers never accepted its premium image. Similar thing happened when Korean carmaker initially launched Sonata (2001) and Elantra (2004) in India. Both of these saloons were epitome of style and sophistication, but a bit ahead of times. Recently, New Hyundai Sonata was launched and it took the market by a flurry with its exclusive design and apt dimensions along with aggressive pricing in the Rs 20 Lakh range.  

Another revived and anticipated sedan that has hit the bull’s eye is New Hyundai Elantra. The 2012 Auto Expo displayed sedan bid adieu to Indian car market in 2007 due to slumping sales numbers. This step-back was done to bang the premium segment doors with two-fold intensity and the result is all-new Hyundai Elantra Fluidic sedan. The fifth
generation sedan has won numerous accolades and awards around the world and the most happening has been ‘North American Car of the Year’ award at Detroit this year. Currently in the competition are old rivals like Skoda Laura, Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic, whereas some modern challengers are Renault Fluence and Volkswagen Jetta. Now with 2012 Hyundai Elantra joining in, the segment senses newness.Hyundai Elantra Pictures

Both these powertrains are mated to an optional 6-speed Manual or 6-speed Automatic transmissions; which is first time in this segment that petrol and diesel motors are available with manual as well as automatic gear box mechanism
The exteriors of Hyundai Elantra are just marvelous and with fluidic sculpture flowing all over, it can be rated the best-looking above Rs 12-Lakh sedan. There are many similarities in the outer surface when compared to Verna like the muscular hood character lines, curvy swept-back headlamps and front grille besides pronounced wheel arches on the side profile. Another notable factor on the sides is the Hyundai Sonata-like coupe line. At the rear of Hyundai Elantra, it is all classy and with oversized bumper at rear one might get a feel of Sonata with cab forward aerodynamic design.

Hyundai Elantra PicturesThe interiors are smartly done with beige and dark grey double-shade finish inside the roomy cabin of New Hyundai Elantra. The slick dashboard and waterfall design centre console make a perfect combination. There are glossy black finished inserts on the door panel.

Moreover, interior room and comfort have been one of the award-winning parameters for Hyundai Elantra when it walked away with the eminent North American Car of the Year.

Here on the performance part the Laura is expected to take the game away from Hyundai Elantra with its higher displacement engine, but will compensate the same by getting you some beyond belief mileage numbers with both the fuel choices along with sheer refinement of engines. On the safety aspect, Korean sedan will definitely defeat Czech saloon as it has got an extremely safe and secure package for its occupants. Furthermore, the decisive factor will be the pricing part and Hyundai will certainly sweep the floor with its aggressive price policy that had earlier stunned the critics with New Hyundai Sonata price.

Hyundai Elantra Rear View PictureHere another rival at hand is Toyota Corolla Altis. Talking about exteriors, Corolla has a kind of basic aerodynamic design with slightly curvy Camry-like headlamps and front grille along with elegant looking rear—overall out and out premium appearance. However, Hyundai Elantra has got very modern overall styling with remarkable fluidic ideology. The best part is its cab-forward approach that makes it look more glamorous.

New Hyundai Elantra Road Test Report

Hyundai Elantra Gear Knob PicturesEasily one of the most breathtaking premium sedans, the Hyundai Elantra was test driven some days back to check out every aspect closely. The test run carried out was of less than 100 kilometers and this distance was enough to unveil many interesting and talented characteristics of the New Hyundai Elantra

While on the road test, it was observed that this sedan shared many capabilities of sibling Hyundai Verna. First of all, it’s the supreme 1.6L diesel engine that again presents its amazing refinement throughout the drive as it does with Verna, or would say slightly more polished. The 1.8L petrol motor also offers a real chunky ride as its diesel mate. Here the Hyundai Elantra diesel MT was driven. The suspensions are aptly set up and are inclined more towards providing more comfort, while if talk about earlier version the suspension wasn’t that great, on the run this sedan can cut corners very well. The undulations of the roads were absorbed pretty well. There was no noise inside the cabin the NVH levels were of great delight; just think if this is the feedback of diesel variant, how pleasurable will be petrol drive. Here, with manual transmission you feel a bit of turbo lag after which 2012 Hyundai Elantra drags it modestly.

Inside with dual zone climate control function the air conditioner (it also has cluster ionizer) works perfectly, while rear vents also perform their duty well. There are 4 speakers and two tweeters on the dash; moreover the sound quality out of the music system is truly humming, while there is Aux, USB and iPod interface present for more handiness. Here, the phone can also be synced to stream the audio and simultaneously be useful at answering phone calls. 
The body roll was never problematic in this long test. Some other remarkable characteristics, the steering was feather light in right sense and the ideal gripping 4-wheel discs were just accurate accompanied by ABS they were in total control. Additionally, the car is also equipped with unique VMS (Vehicle Stability Management) feature that not only corrects the steering but also assists well under lost control situations. One can say it as an enhanced edition of ESP. In any sense Hyundai Elantra is a cozy highway cruiser by clocking 140 kmph cleanly. The 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmission take good care of the fuel economy, be it diesel or else petrol.  The best part at zooming is that it remained planted on the road, which was a shortcoming in the Verna. The firm grip is actually conferred by the 16-inch alloy wheels, these Nexen silica tyres offer proper grip on the surface.

Hyundai Elantra Conclusion

Hyundai Elantra PicturesNow this is yet another Classic from the Korean carmaker, after Hyundai Verna and Hyundai Sonata. The price as expected is aggressive as far as the competition is concerned and that makes New Hyundai Elantra ‘a complete package’. There are very fewer cars that make such an astounding and promising ‘return’ into the crowded arena of automotive world. As per the rumors earlier, it is expected to be priced near to that of Toyota Corolla Altis sedan. Hyundai Motors are now slowly and steadily trying to eat away the premium market with spirited products like New Hyundai Elantra also known as ‘Hyundai Avante’ in some countries.

The Elantra has got all to disgrace any opponent from power to glamour, from performance to premium luxury that has actually made this fabulous piece of craftsmanship a success even before its launch in the country. Hyundai expects the same triumph from New Elantra that New Verna did in the entry level premium segment. The success of New Hyundai Elantra, which is sure, will actually be a real upset for its rivals. Since it will not only hit its own segment challengers but also other higher segment sedans due to its versatile and valued packaging.
