Hyundai has announced pricing and specs for the facelifted 2019 Elantra sedan.
The range has expanded to four variants, up from three.
Opening the range is the Go, priced from $21,490 plus on-road costs with a six-speed manual (a six-speed automatic costs $2000 extra). Standard equipment includes a 7.0-inch infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, reversing camera, cruise control, automatic headlights, halogen daytime running lights, 3.5-inch driver info display, six airbags, full-sized spare tyre, tinted windows and 15-inch steel wheels with hubcaps.
Above the Go is the Active, priced from $25,990 plus on-roads with the standard six-speed auto. Additional equipment includes an 8.0-inch infotainment screen with satellite navigation, DAB+ digital radio, 16-inch alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, power folding mirrors, LED indicators, leather steering wheel and gear knob and an eight-speaker Infinity sound system.
A $1700 SmartSense safety pack is available for automatic-equipped Go and Active variants, which includes autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and driver attention alert.
The Go and Active models are powered by the existing 2.0-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine, which produces 112kW of power and 192Nm of torque. It sips 91 RON fuel, and can support E10.
Elantra Sport and Sport Premium variants will be offered “at a later date” to replace the existing SR performance flagship. It will be powered by the 150kW/265Nm 1.6-litre turbo-four from the i30 SR/N Line hatch, paired to either a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch auto. Expect it to bring even more comfort and convenience equipment, along with the standard fitment of the SmartSense pack on DCT models.
The facelifted Hyundai Elantra is on sale now.
