Already the sanstorm is expensive with the 5.75 lak tag on road bbay ,
Imagine, which fool would pay abt 6.25 ( for the crdi )for a dump looking car which has no history.

compared to all the other cars the elantra looks very outdated.and rightly said by a lot of members it loooks like an elongated accent.i am not sure if i am right but i think i understand indian car buyers mentality(not sure people.....dont kick my **s on it).but when a customer buys a car he would like the company to be associated with a bigger better expensive car first.like for eg.skoda and toyota dont have any small cars in india right now so whenever somebody says skoda or toyota, the first thing that comes to mind is the octavia nd the coroola.but when somebody says hyundai ,the first thing that comes to mind is santro.so,basically in the lower d segment people dont care whether the car is petrol or diesel,waht matters is that the company name should look expensive.hope atleas some of you agree with me.

its just bcoz of the crdi heart that the elantra is coming out of its showroom. nothing else.
btw, does anyone also consider another Hyundai who had the same fate.....Hyundai Getz and Tucson.

The looks being the main reason; the other one was till now the price of the Old Sonata. After discounts, the price difference between the S20 and the Elantra came to less than a lac the last time I had checked out.

well, all said n done, IMHO... the Elantra is no doubt a supreb car, except for its front looks!
its interiors are far better than the Corolla and Octavia , and can be compared to the Accord! quality vise also its just too good! and seating and all the interiors are excellent,
while the engine is also so powerful and efficient, when a person sheds around 11-12 lks, he expects to get something that "look" worht that amount from "outside too" not just inside.
but nowadays, if u see, atleast in Hyderabad, the Elantra sales are going up, u get to see lot of new elantras suddenly now. one thing might be the rising cost of the fuel, that people want to shift to diesel, and ppl getting bored of the skoda's looks, and frustrated with the skoda's ugly interiors and useless back seats!
if only Hyundai could design the Elantra lot more attractive from outside!
