2016 Hyundai Elantra teased image

The 2016 Hyundai Elantra is returning to our attention with the help of its first teaser image which has been released by the car manufacturer.

The sixth generation of the Hyundai Elantra is just around the corner and it will be very different to the current one, in terms of design at least. The compact vehicle will be moving more upmarket, along with the rest of the Hyundai lineup, and it is getting the large hexagonal front grille, new headlights, chrome accents, a heavily sloped roofline, a rakish windscreen, some prominent character lines and a fresh set of alloy wheels.

The cabin of the 2016 Hyundai Elantra will be significantly improved too as the model will be coming with features such as the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, the remote start, the new infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen display, the front and rear heated seats, the two USB ports, the Infiniti audio system and several other goodies.

The new generation of the Hyundai Elantra is also going to receive the blind spot detection, rear cross traffic alert, the automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection and more. Under its hood, the KDM variant will be making use of a 1.6 liter T-GDi engine, producing 175 HP, connected to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. The 2016 Hyundai Elantra is believed to be unveiled at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show, this November, and to be offered for sale before the end of the year. More details on it are limited at this time.
