2016 Hyundai Elantra spied

Sixth-gen 2016 Hyundai Elantra spied in South Korea

August 11, 2015

The current Hyundai Elantra (Hyundai Avante) that is in its fifth generation, premiered at the Busan International Motor Show in April 2010, and received a facelift in 2013.

The all-new sixth generation model has been spied in South Korea by an AutoSpy user, ahead of its domestic market launch as a MY2016.

Developed under the codename ‘AD,’ the design should be based on the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language. The all-new model, as hinted by the spy shot (above), could gain the new signature hexagon single-frame grille from the second Genesis. The side profile features less muscular fenders, a rising beltline, sleek mirrors and redesigned window panels. The spy shot of the rear reveals there will be new taillamps with some LED treatment and a larger bumper.

Coming to the technical aspects, the engine and transmission options can be expected to be those from the Tucson. The new 176-PS (174-hp) T-GDI turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine and the 141-PS (139-hp) 1.7-litre e-VGT turbo-diesel engine could be offered on the sixth-gen model, with output revisions. Transmission options should include 6-speed manual and 7-speed DCT automatic.

Reports say that the 2016 Hyundai Elantra will be unveiled at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show in November, following a launch in Korea.
