Elantra’s profile gets stunning details and chiseled body lines. Of course, we have to mention those side profiles – Hyundai calls this technique parametric dynamics.

Hyundai offers 15, 16, and 17-inch sporty wheel options to best suit your preference. Hyundai also updated its LED headlamp design, hood design, and the wide grille, which are the highlight of the front fascia. 

At the rear, the wide taillight is its latest entry to Elantra’s taillight design. If you’ll notice, the rear light actually illuminates an ‘H’ shape.

The infotainment system also includes wireless Android Auto and Apple Carplay so you don’t have to worry about auxiliary cords. Another cool feature is the wireless charging.
