What appears to be the 2016 Hyundai Elantra has leaked online.

A photo that claims to show the new Elantra has been posted online by Korean website auto.hankyung. The car is supposed to launch next month in its home market of South Korea as a 2016 model year vehicle.

Styling on the Elantra brings it in line with what we have seen on the new Sonata. New headlights with vertical LEDs have been installed along with an entirely new front fascia.

In North America, Hyundai has already revealed the 2016 Elantra GT with a new look, but hasn’t shown the standard Elantra sedan yet. If the license plate on this car is believed, this will be the new 2016 Elantra sedan.

We reached out to Hyundai PR for clarification. As of publication time, there was no response.

Update: A Hyundai spokesman responded, saying, “Hyundai has no comment on the photo although it’s likely a Korean version prototype. Expect to see a new Elantra in the U.S. sometime early next year.”

    I work at a hyundai dealer in MA, and we just recieved our first 2016 Elantra. It's still the old bodystyle, unless they messed up this particular Elantra.
