2016 Hyundai Elantra leaked

2016 Hyundai Elantra leaked


Pictures of the 2016 Hyundai Elantra has leaked online early, ahead of its official debut next month at the Seoul Motor Show. Hyundai, however, did recently reveal a few teaser images already of the exterior and interior.

2016 Hyundai Elantra 1

The all-new model features a large new front grille, projector headlamps with integrated indicator lamps, along with large air intakes and vertical LED daytime running lamps in the bumper. The photos on the factory floor show the Avante, which is the Elantra’s Korean-spec cousin. Inside, the cabin design seems to take design cues from the latest Hyundai Genesis.

Under the hood, it is mostly likely the old engines will carry over from the current model to the new model in this region, which includes 1.6-litre, a 1.8-litre and a 2.0-litre, depending on the country. Whether the 174 hp turbocharged 1.6-litre 4-cylinder engine will make it to this region remains to be seen.

The 2016 Hyundai Elantra should make it the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other GCC markets before the end of the year.

Keep track of the latest prices and updates in the Hyundai Elantra buyer guide.

What do you think?



  1. This photo was leaked long time ago and i dont tbink it’s the elantra

  2. I guess its time for the Koreans to show some mercy towards the Japanese…says it all

  3. if u pay attention at the last pic of the rear of the car you will notice that its Hyundai Avante take a closer look at the last pic and whats written .

  4. Avante is the model name in Korea. Still its the Elentra.

  5. The Grille and Fog lamp inserts are a total rip of Lexus and Toyota Family. Anyways a confused design.

  6. I am a happy owner of a 2013 Elantra GLS.

    Not that I am partial towards the newer models because I own an older one, but the interior of the newer models does look inferior to the 2013’s, the buttons are tiny, they took away the silver accents around the interior which used to compliment the bright-blue lighting, gear knob is plain black whereas 2013 model has a steel rod and silver lining around the knob.

    And the 2016 model – the front looks bad, really bad.

    Anyway, Hyundai has been ruling the streets for quite sometime now and they are good at it, so – no complaints! 🙂

  7. It’s much better looking than the ugly over priced plastic- interior Toyota. I don’t see it taking any of their design, knowing that Hyundai has been great in providing almost perfect design models (Fluid)for the last 5-6 years.. Japanese need to reconsider their pricing and design factors…
