Spy shots: 2014 Hyundai Elantra facelift

Recommended Posts

Spy shots of the Hyundai Elantra facelift have surfaced online. The front bumper and the foglamps are likely to be revised. Headlamps get new detailing which look more premium than that of the current car. As with most facelifts, the alloy wheel pattern has changed to a more interesting design.

The rear of the car also gets slight revisions with the combination lamp getting new elements. The interior would not undergo any drastic changes while the same applies to the hardware as well. The Indian Elantra would continue to use the 1.6 litre 126bhp diesel and the 1.8 litre 147 bhp petrol engines mated to 6-speed manual or automatic gearboxes.

The 2014 Hyundai Elantra is expected to make its global premiere towards the end of 2013.

The new Elantra looks awsome as compared to the competition in India. It doesnt even need a facelift here.. but yes, we're not complaining much if Hyundai brings this here

Hyundai teases the facelift 2014 Elantra

Those are not expected to be significant as Hyundai does not want to change much over its highly-successful model that has been selling well particularly in the United States and Canada.

Hyundai Elantra has become the top-selling Hyundai model in the USA surpassing the previous year leader, the Sonata mid-size sedan. Although Elantra family consists of three models, the 5-door GT hatchback, two-door coupe and 4-door sedan, the carmaker plans to update only the latter one.

The GT and coupe models are still relatively fresh on the market so they do not need any major styling updates.

The Elantra 4-door sedan too will not be getting any significant mid-cycle styling updates.

You can expect to see a slightly redesigned front signature grille and new bumper with updated fog-lights.Back at rear, the updated model will also incorporate a slightly revised bumper and tail-lamps using LED technology.

The petrol GDI four-cylinder engines, used in the current Avante are modern enough and they deliver good fuel economy.

A diesel engine could be added to the range to satisfy an increased demand for diesel-powered cars demand in Korea.

The Avante facelift is slated to go on sale in Korea in the third quarter of 2013, while overseas release date is not known at this point.

The updated Elantra sedan could debut at the L.A. Auto Show in November this year, but this remains a speculation currently.

Well! Hyundai's have always been feature loaded.. Too much bang for the buck.. I hope with the next iteration they introduce XENONS in the segment (at the lower end of segment) and force the competitors to follow, keeping us customers very very happy :D:)

Hyundai has also caught on to the BMW /Audi like tail lights.

Saw online pics of the Sonata a few days back , the tails lights of both Sonata and the Elantra ,look somewhat similar, a big NO in my view.

Any India launch dates ?

This pretty much an Elantra Sport on steroids! Hyundai and Blood Type Racing have prepared this special concept for the ongoing SEMA show in Vegas. It gets a methanol injection intake, custom exhaust and intercooler, a tuned suspension and a full aero kit.
