Just bought the Elantra - 2.0 VTVT Auto. Apparently its the first Marine Blue Elantra in Jodhpur.

Car feels great to drive, the engine refinement is phenomenal. Though the auto shift isn't as smooth as the DSG but its more than adequate. Have just completed 75kms to date. Its not a primary vehicle in the family, the daily duties are done by a Ford Figo.

My Elantra- Race against GST Increase

So my Skoda Laura dsg was finishing 5 years and the family was putting pressure for a change. The ambiente version was to plain for their liking

In the 3rd week of august my wife sat in her friends car on the way back from school. At first she thought this was an high end german sedan but she was told that it was the new Elantra. She immediately gave her feedback that this was the car to see.

So i contacted couple of Hyundai dealers in Mumbai but no one was interested in pushing the Elantra. Focus was on the Verna which had just been launched and the Creta which was selling by the truckloads

Finally contacted Modi Hyundai in Santacruz and the salesperson there. Since the intent was to buy a before a GST increase checked with her if they have any vehicles in stock. She replied that they dont stock the same because of the of take but she can check the stock in the Hyundai Factory. She called back saying that there is a silver colour VTVT SX O automatic available but one will have to decide fast.

That evening i borrowed my friends Elantra and drove it around with the family. We were convinced that this car had all our requirements. Kids were excited for the sunroof

So paid the booking amount on 23 rd august. Decided to take the car loan from SBI because they allow prepayment of any amount at any time.
Things went smoothly and the car was delivered on September 4.

Its a breeze to drive in the city and is really comfortable and well equipped. The navigation system is very easy to use.

Some pictures of the car

Congratulations amidoc. We had the same race against GST. Though we bought the car from Canteen Stores Dept. through my father-in-law. The on-road price of the SX Auto came to 15,15,000.

Default Orion Hyundai - Are they shirking me?

Hi All,

I have booked a Hyundai Elantra with Orion Hyundai, time tower, gurgaon on 31st August 2017. I was promised a delivery in 10 days if I choose silver color over red, and I chose silver. Now, they are telling me that the car is in the company but some parts are missing and because of that they would only be able to receive an order confirmation post 15th of September. They have given me a discount of Rs 70,000/- on the car for which 2 more dealers refused as they don't exclusively deal in Elantra.

Now my concern is that if the car is delayed further, the cess would come into play and the car's price will go up. I have already escalated this to Hyundai Sales team over an email but it seems they will take 3 working days before getting back to me. Any ideas on what I can do?

I may be wrong but this is what I think is happening.

May be they would have found a customer who ready to pay upfront or pay a bulk amount and pick the car citing the Cess hike. Such customers are​ given preference so all kind of stories these dealers come up with.

Worst case they are wantedly delaying it so hiked prices are applicable.

I don't buy this parts missing logic.

This is the reason for that so called discount is given which will get nullified when the Cess hike happens today.

Only an Auto generated email comes listing regional team numbers and email ID, no action is taken. I too have shot them an email regarding my booking of the Creta. Yet to get some kind of response.

had a question regarding regarding map my india.

while it shows directions does it also show any real time traffic update? The same shows the estimated time of arrival but that does not seem to tally with the google maps.

I am yet to see a map in India apart from google maps that shows traffic. ETA on these maps is just some rough algorithm showing you an approximate time.

Congrats on purchasing new Elantra

Can you share whether the Head Lamp, as well as the high beam, emits white light? What about the throw?

Also, when I checked Octavia 1.8, they have this mirror link feature with their infotainment. Does Elantra also has this feature?

Pls help - thank you

Hey... Thanks for the wishes.

The headlamps in the SX are halogen projectors with the regular yellow light. The same light is in the SX(O) albeit in HID form also in yellow.

Elantra's HU has both Apple Car Play and Android Auto.

Thank you.

I am planning Elantra TD today/tomorrow. It seems they are not giving any discount as of now. Moreover, Cess component gone up.

For the Petrol SX(O), I think, it's 21.56 L OTR.

Apart from the lighting, I have few concerns, viz. breaking, top speed, the lag due to normal AT..Anyway, hopefully I will get a clarity once TD is done. Such a big looking sedan from outside, but, Elantra has relatively a small boot - one of the main factors I am looking for in my new car for my long drives with family.

Safe Driving.
