THINGS WE LIKE IN ELANTRA:

  • Fluidic design is clean and crisp. Turns a lot of heads.
  • Feature packed – projector headlamps with daytime running lamps, 16-inch alloy wheels, sunroof etc.
  • 2.0-litre petrol engine is super silent and refined
  • Six-speed automatic transmission is quick to shift, gear changes are smooth as well.
  • Comfortable ride quality, best-suited for the chauffeur driven.

THINGS WE DON’T LIKE IN ELANTRA:

  • Not for the enthusiast. 1.6-litre diesel feels underpowered compared to immediate rivals
  • Hard plastics used on the interior buttons and switches feel out of place in an otherwise premium interior
  • Under-thigh support in the rear bench could have been better. Headroom is slightly compromised due to the sloping roofline as well
  • Most feel-good features limited to top-end variant only

STAND OUT FEATURES:

8-inch touchscreen audio systeam gets Apple only in car in it’s class to feature ventilated seats.An Hands free boot release carplay and Android Auto 6-speaker sound system absolute boon in the summer tweaked by Arkamys sounds good to
