2018 Hyundai Elantra
The Hyundai Elantra built upon its large fan base by offering a well-sized sedan paired with better-than-average engine performance. The previous generation offered engine choices of a 1.6-litre or a 1.8-litre and priced competitively, below its traditional rivals like Honda Civic, Toyota Altis and Kia Cerato.
In many ways, the Elantra demonstrates the growing maturity of Hyundai as a car company. Gone are the days that Hyundai cars are regarded as a budget alternative to those who can’t afford a Japanese marque. These days, Hyundai produces cars that are on par, if not better than their Japanese counterparts.
Hyundai-Sime Darby Motors (HSDM) is offering two variants of the Hyundai Elantra here in Malaysia, a naturally-aspirated 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine paired to a six-speed automatic and the Hyundai Elantra Sport, powered by a 1.6-litre T-GDI engine that is paired to a seven-speed DCT.
The 2.0-litre engine from the Nu family of engines delivers 152 PS and 192 Nm of torque. A six-speed torque converter automatic transmission takes care of the shifting duties. Meanwhile, the 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol powerplant from the Gamma engine family headlines the range, with rated outputs of 203 PS @ 6,000rpm and 265 Nm @ 1,500 – 4,500rpm. Drive is sent to the front wheels via Hyundai's EcoShift seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.
Powertrain and aesthetics aside, the biggest difference between the regular Elantra and Elantra Sport is the rear suspension set up. On both Elantra 2.0 variants, the rear suspension is of a torsion beam configuration, whilst the more expensive and powerful Elantra Sport utilizes a multilink rear suspension set up.
Standard feature in the 2.0-litre includes: 17-inch wheels with 225/45 tyres, LED tail lamps, split folding rear seats, infotainment with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity and 7-inch touch screen, reverse camera, rear console air vent, cruise control, drive mode and contactless opening boot/trunk (Smart Trunk).
The Elantra Sport turbo adds: Xenon head lamps, LED tail lamps with different graphics, exhaust muffler with dual tips, leather upholstery, dual-zone and automatic control air conditioning, rain sensing wipers, steering wheel shift paddles, blind spot monitor, and rear cross traffic alert.
HSDM is backing the Elantra with a 5-year or 300,000 km warranty. On top of that, a 24-hour road assist service is also available for new and existing Hyundai customers.
