Due to be revealed at the end of 2015, the redesigned Elantra’s styling will be similar to the updated 2015 Sonata and Genesis. That means more angular looks, also previewed by the refreshed 2016 Elantra GT.
One or both of the current engines, a 1.8- and 2.0-liter four cylinder, may carry over to the 2016 car. To offer a more fuel efficient option, the Elantra might adopt a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, the same powertrain found in the Sonata Eco.
Inside, styling also mimics the larger Sonata, while we can see the latest version of Hyundai’s infotainment unit in the center stack. The redesigned Elantra is expected to be have slightly more interior space than the current car, while the list of advance safety options is expected to grow.
Watch for the 2016 Hyundai Elantra to be revealed sometime later this year, while it should hit the U.S. in early 2016.
