Hyundai’s Elantrahas never convinced consumers to take a plunge of investing into the Elantra moniker. What this line has drawn from the very first time is the desire from its beholder. That’s until the current generation comes into view. Elantra’s fifth generation charms consumers with its classy fashion and decent specifications.
Hyundai has endowed the Elantra GT with what they call“fluidic” design language that sports a mature façade. Elantra GT’s fascia highlights thick horizontal slats that almost cover the front bumper. Wheels are made up of 17-inch alloy, bearing the new design that communicates perfectly with the grilles.
Not only Elantra GT’s exterior had a revamp but it is the same also with the cabin. The center stack received this benefit along with a portion of the dashboard that bears the climate control system and radio. Instead of the curvy hour-glass silhouette, it is now bombarded edgier lines. Seats have the option to be heated or cooled at least for both the front passenger and driver.
The coolest feature this latest Elantra’s interior is its telematics system which enables users to control some of the car’s features using mobile app via the latest version of Blue Link.
