The 2016 Hyundai Elantra is expected to be launched with two engine options in India. The petrol engine will likely be the 2.0-litre MPI four-cylinder unit that produces 149 PS (146.90 hp) and 183 Nm of torque, while the diesel engine will likely be the 1.6-litre VGT four-cylinder unit good for 136 PS (134.09 hp) and 306 Nm of torque. Transmission choices expected to be offered are 6-speed manual, 6-speed automatic and 7-speed dual-clutch automatic.
A Black interior scheme, three-spoke multifunction steering wheel, 7- or 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system and HVAC vents for rear passengers are the features expected inside the new Elantra.
