From every perspective, the sixth gen edition, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra is an amazing vehicle in terms of looks and design aesthetics.
The company has already tasted ample success in making the Elantra popular among the crowd. It was officially unveiled at the Los Angeles auto show held this year and is all set for a grand public launch. The design assets start right with the grille which is in the shape of a trapezoid. The large grille will definitely make heads turn and it must have been a tough decision for the makers at Hyundai to make. But, somehow they have managed to come out of the conventional circle and opt for an unconventional design.
On the interiors, the Elantra resembles the Sonata a light. For any newcomer, it might be difficult to find the differences between both cars as they share a similar dashboard, seat spacing and infotainment system. The large touchscreen is a boon for people who love to enjoy the most out of the entertainment when on the move. It also allows the rider to control the climate, adjust settings and so on. Sonata did it best by allowing the driver to easily reach everything and Elantra follows the success model without experimenting much.
The aggressive redesigning on the 2017 Hyundai Elantra is evident in the side bolsters, the front seats and the luggage room the car offers. While the designers have opted for an extremely conservative approach in retaining some of the most important design elements, they have gone completely evolutionary with other parts of the car.
It is a mixed bag of goodies that the next gen Elantra wants to offer its customers. The new wave of cars is coming and it is going to be an important year for the automobile industry as most of them are moving towards hybrids, plug-in models. Major brands have confirmed that they are going to launch electric cars of their own. It might be at least two to three years before we could see them in action but that’s not a long way to go.
Tesla has already paved the way for electric cars and the 2017 Hyundai Elantra is another good example of how electric hybrids could be made. BMW is in the line, joined by Audi, Porsche and plenty of others, including some surprising entrants. They may not only make electric vehicles, but also make them autonomous in the following years.
