Next-Generation Elantra To Be Launched In Late 2015
Although Hyundai has yet to release the refreshed Elantra to the US market, the carmaker is already hard at work developing the next-generation model.
According to latest reports, Hyundai may bring a fully revamped Elantra compact sedan to the market in the second half of 2015.
The buzz around the 2015 Elantra was created by a Korean car part supplier who revealed it has won a contract from Hyundai to supply steering wheels for the new model.
The company said it would supply steering wheels for the new Elantra for seven years starting in the second half of 2015.
What To Expect From The New Elantra?
The next-generation Hyundai Elantra is expected to go on sale in the USA in late 2015 as a 2016 model.
The compact sedan will adopt Hyundai’s new styling DNA set by design guru Peter Schreyer who has recently been appointed as president of the Hyundai-Kia Motor Group.
According to sources close to the automaker, we can expect his first production models to hit the market in approximately two to three years.
We believe the next-generation Elantra could be the first Hyundai model designed under the guidance of Peter Schreyer.
The next generation Elantra would probably maintain the same basic size and would again be available as a sedan, coupe and hatchback, with each of them featuring specific styling cues.
Following current trends in the auto business, the new Elantra will shed some of its weight and gain a range of highly-efficient turbo engines. A hybrid-version of the popular compact sedan may also be in the pipeline.
Consumers outside of USA will also have a choice of a revised diesel engine.
