2019 Hyundai Elantra: the first photos of the new items
The Koreans at Hyundai have gone mad. Scribble new items like a machine gun. See for yourself. Two years ago, appeared on the market the sixth generation of the popular Korean sedan. A motley range of engines from 1.4-liter turbo engine to a good torquey inline four-cylinder power unit of 2.0 liters. Transmission seven-speed 7-DCT in the top or a six-speed transmission for manual or automatic propulsion. Sharpened by all the modern wishes of our customers appearance with the “sharp” features, with huge, by today’s fashion, the radiator filesresearch. All this stuff with more than enough for four or five years. But no need to show off to all the envious, and competitors lost a lot of sleep and peace of mind.
Hyundai has taken a deep restyling of its sedan
So, what happened? Hyundai completely changed the design of its chassis of a sedan. That’s just completely. The elements of the body became more angular. Grille more blurred at the front, she had additional faces. Lights – generally atas! – become triangular, and the tail lights got an extra section on the side, at the bottom.
Bumper – the back, the front also changed, this is clearly seen on the spy photos that appeared in the local Korean website:
In the front are new air intakes and triangle foglights, rear plastic element aeroobika and protection got a new punch.
Tailgate and bonnet has also changed. Factory press will now be churning out some other patterns and ribs.
This is a restyled case of most automakers over, but not for Hyundai. The automaker clearly changed the rear window – this is the end of the glass comes through the door. At least it looks that way. Top in the rear of the roof sticking out of the antenna “shark fin”. On directline it was not.
About disc to say anything yet. On the submitted three photos of the wheel dressed in white protective caps. Perhaps there will be some new designs on the alloy wheels.
How was testing a restyled version of the Hyundai Elantra?
One of the assumptions of how it could look like a model Elantra 2019
As standard, the lion’s share of flight tests of the Korean sedan was held in South Korea. From the Peninsula often appeared photos camouflaged, the redesigned new products. As seen in the photos, the model in a literal sense was covered with heavy camouflage over the entire surface of the body. Unprotected for a look was only a roof. It, as we see in the end, the modifications were made.
Optics of the car were changed, not just in style, but worked out with the technical side of the issue. Before you fully LED headlights:
Rear mounted led brake lights.
Have you changed the interior of the restyled Hyundai Elantra?
According to previously announced information, the car’s interior will get less significant changes. A revised infotainment system is perhaps the Central part of all the modifications to the cabin. It is Central because many automakers over the last year riveted the attention of upgrading legacy virtual systems, ravnaas progressive manufacturer of electric cars – Tesla. The technology of obtaining and entering information must not distract the driver from the road, and certainly not to annoy him.
Support for Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto as always mandatory.
A distinctive feature of Korean cars is that at a budget price, they are stuffed to the eyeballs with all sorts of electronic assistance systems and safety. This approach is relevant even for machines of the lower trim levels.
The seats, dashboard and the overall style of the cabin, in all probability, will remain the same. Special emphasis developers make on improving the materials used and minor changes in interior design. In addition to this, it is possible to expand the list of basic technologies that were formerly available only as options.
With regard to the internal capacity of the restyling of the sixth series, it can also change in the direction of increase. This is indicated by a modified rear door of the sedan. Despite the lack of accurate data, it can be assumed that in this way, the automaker will add 10-20 mm for rear passengers feet.
By the way, one of the most common complaints was that tightness on the back of the couch. Passengers taller than 180 cm rested his knees into the backs of the front seats. So a restyled version of it would be nice to solve this problem.
Will be the revised restyled technically new?
Rumor has it that the updated model will change not only externally, changes by 2019, waiting for customers inside. Have to replace the aspirated 1.6-litre motor of similar new from a new line of Smart Stream (123 horses with 154 Nm). The same motor is already placed on the twin brother Elantra, Kia Cerato. Powerplant made its debut in 2017 at the Frankfurt motor show:
Its advantages: efficiency (increased by 50%), the modified shelf torque (smoother), the ability of stakovic with hybrid motors (in Russia will not be granted).
Smart Stream turbo engine displacement of 1.6 liters also received the first commercial application of the technology Continuously Variable Valve Duration (CVVD), which regulates the opening and closing valve of the cylinder in accordance with the selected mode of motion, to best suit economic or active driving.
By 2022 the company plans to expand the range of engines Smart Stream 10 gasoline and six diesel engines with six transmissions.
Recall that in the range of engines now includes three 1.6-litre power unit. 1.6-litre petrol (four cylinders, no turbos, 128 HP, 155 Nm), the gasoline turbocharged engine G4FJ and diesel turbo engine. Cars cannot be called dynamic, with atmospheric petrol 128 HP engine, acceleration takes a minimum of 10.1 seconds to 100 km/h on the mechanics, to a maximum of 11.6 seconds on the automatic transmission.
Russia also sold a 2.0-liter model with 150 HP on Board. With two liters under the hood of dynamics ranges from 8.8 seconds (manual gearbox) to 9.9 with automatic transmission.
With the new engine will employ CVT transmission. About other data. Time to reveal the card has not come yet.
