Default 2014 Hyundai Elantra Facelift

Link to News Section

The Elantra sedan, also known as the Avante in certain international markets, has been a big global success for South Korean car maker Hyundai. The car, in its fifth generation, was unveiled three years ago, at the 2010 Busan Motor Show. Due for a mid career facelift, the 2014 version of the Elantra will be unveiled in South Korea, on the 24th of August, 2013.

In the run up to the unveil, Hyundai South Korea has teased the car on the interweb. From the teaser images, a few details about the 2014 Hyundai Elantra facelift can be discerned. One such detail is a significant feature addition, in the form of the park assist function. On the looks front, the 2014 Elantra gets a new front bumper, LEDs for the head lamps and tail lamps, revised tail lamp and alloy wheel designs.

The car will also get a new turbo diesel engine. It remains to be seen whether the 1.6 liter turbo diesel motor, also on use in the Verna/Accent, will be the diesel engine powering the 2014 Elantra. In that case, the new diesel engine option for the car will not carry much significance for the Indian car market, where the Elantra is already available with the 1.6 liter turbo diesel motor.

However, if the 2014 Elantra does get a new turbo diesel engine, it would make for an interesting upgrade possibility in the Indian context. The 1.8 liter petrol engine featuring variable valve timing is expected to be retained on the 2014 Elantra while the 6 speed manual and automatic gearboxes are also expected to carry on unchanged. In terms of the interiors, the 2014 Elantra could get a once over along with new features added.

A global unveil at this year's Los Angeles Motor Show is likely for the 2014 Elantra. The car was launched in India during 2012 and ever since, the Elantra has managed to become the top selling D1 sedan in the Indian car market. With the global facelift for the Elantra due later this year, the refreshed model could arrive into India sometime next year.

Default 2014 Hyundai Elantra/Avante facelift unveiled

Link to News Section

Hyundai has released imagery of the 2014 Elantra/Avante facelift. The car is a top selling model in the South Korean car maker's global portfolio and through the mid-life facelift, Hyundai has given the car new styling details on the outside as well as new features on the inside.

For the Korean domestic market, the 2014 Elantra gets the 1.6 liter turbo diesel engine, which also does duty on the Verna Fluidic sold in India. This motor outputs 126 Bhp of peak power and 260 Nm of peak torque, figures that are similar to what the engine delivers on the Verna Fluidic.

The diesel engine could also be available on the Elantra Facelift sold in Europe. The petrol engine line up consisting of 1.6 liter and 1.8 liter, naturally aspirated units are retained without any changes. The 1.6 liter turbo diesel engine gets a 6 speed automatic transmission.

A Start-Stop system has also been added to the 2014 model of the Elantra. Coming to the design changes on the 2014 Elantra facelift, the car gets new front and rear bumpers, projector headlamps, daytime running LEDs on the headlamp, 17 inch alloy wheels in a new design and new LED tail lamps.

On the inside, the car gets re-positioned front center AC vents and a raised front armrest. A 3.5 inch OLED display unit for the infotainment system, rear AC vents and ventilated seats are the few other changes on the Korea-spec model. The Hyundai Elantra, in its current guise, was launched in India in the second half of last year. So, it remains to be seen when Hyundai will launch the facelifted Elantra in India.

Been a year since this thread was posted last and no sign of this one. I'm so close to buying the Elantra 1.8sx and i wish it came with the updated infotainment system and alloys. Some basic functions such as distance to empty and FE indicator are sorely missing!
