This is where it all took off for the GCC, now in it’s the fifth generation, the Hyundai Elantra once again sports an entirely new shape which we all know and love to this day. Out of all the sedan’s in this generation and the price bracket it holds, this is one of the better-looking ones and is surprisingly roomy inside.
With elegantly crafted curves all around, in 2013 the vehicle underwent a facelift giving the four-door sedan a new face, darker taillights and an uprated engine under the bonnet.
At the start of the generation, GLS took the helm as the base model until, 2014 where it was renamed SE and a new Sport trim was added. Basic specifications include fabric upholstery and air conditioning, Optional extras that come standard on higher tiers include AUX and USB inputs, Bluetooth, cruise control modes, leather seats, power seats, heated seats and sunroof, In 2014, LED headlights were made available alongside new rims, navigation and a premium sound system.
Powering all trim levels except for the Sport one is a 1.6 or 1.8-litre petrol engine mated to either a manual or automatic gearbox powering the front wheels. Sport models are driven by a 2-litre four cylinder motor also mated to an automatic or manual gearbox and powering the front wheels.
Hyundai not only sold a sedan in this generation, but they also sold a Coupe which is still in production in some areas. While sporting a similar design, the rear doors are clearly missing, and it has a more aggressive appearance. Interior and exterior options remain identical.
