2016 Hyundai Elantra Spied Inside and Out


Our spy photographers have grabbed some photos of the next-generation Hyundai Elantra sedan during testing. 

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.

    I was one of the first to buy an 11 Limited with Navigation. The 16 looks BORING to me. I hope they have a large screen Navigation option. AWD would be great, HID lights, and a decent stereo system!

  • I agree with you. KIA cerato “forte” is getting better looking every generation. I think Hyundai will just fail with that 16 boring interior!

  • Looks like a boring ford.

    Personally I think the interior of my 11 limited looks WAY better than the interior of the 16. I have to agree with other comments, it looks very boring. I’m not impressed at all.
