The sedan is responding to the decline of Sales with a serious renewal.
You may be surprised, however, but it seemed very good to me to drive an exciting car like Hyundai Elantra.
You didn’t run, did you? Don’t worry, I’m surprised and laughing. Because when there are so many machines in the world, it’s a strange feeling to feel this way with a tool like Elantra.
I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of crossover. It’s nice to have a lot of different shapes and sizes, but it’s hard to use a crossover while baby-sitting my 5-year-old niece. It’s really hard to get her out of the car without waking her up when she sleeps behind my sister’s Jeep Grand Cherokee.
For small people like me, models like Elantra really save lives. The renewed Korean compact sedan in 2017 saw a comprehensive makeover for 2019.
Thanks to the aggressive new design that marks Lexus, Hyundai’s “progressive” front grille has gained a more striking stance. Sharper front headlights and embedded fog light bulbs enhance the cool look.
Among the other innovations out there are sharper hood design, hand-held rear face, tailgate and stopovers. “Elantra” is beautifully attached to the center of the tailgate, so the plate is now moved into the rear bumper, capturing a more holistic design. The visual package completes the refreshed rim designs and LED headlamps from the standard in the limited edition package.
As a result, the length of Elantra increased from 4569 to 4620 mm, but the height, width, knee distance and shoulder distance remained the same as before the makeup.
The touch in the cabin is less visible. The redesigned dashboard and the redesigned console design are the stars here. While the buttons and ventilation ducts are refreshed, the materials and colors used in the interior are moving in the ‘ 90s, rather than the top class we expect from Hyundai.
We still have plenty of hard plastic face. Yes, the price is acceptable in an economical car starting at $17,100, but this is a little problematic on the sticker of our test car that goes up to $27,000. Currently, the average price of new cars is around $ 36,000 in the United States, and Elantra can be reduced by half, but you don’t have to settle for low-quality materials just because of this.
2019 Elantra’s Hood was moved exactly as before six makeup. The maximum power of the four-cylinder engine is 149 hp and the peak torque is 178 Nm. The Eco offers a 1.4 T-GDi engine with 130 bhp and 211 Nm.
In our test drive all vehicles were included in the limited edition, so they all have six-speed automatic transmissions. In the SE package, the 6-speed manual is standard, while only the eco has a 7-speed, dual-clutch DCT transmission. All transmissions were made before the make-up.
Elantra is not a bad option as a simple business-oriented buyer. According to the segment, Elantra is able to reach highway speeds without any problems. Of course, there’s some lying in the body, because he’s not a Veloster N. I left I-5 on a scenic route to Mendocino Forest in Northern California.
Downhill 120 km/h on the road around the two young gazelle Pat he jumped in front of me. However, I survived a possible crash thanks to the 278 mm standard ventilated disc brakes and ABS system.
The main idea of this story is that the 2019 Elantra has put security on the ground, despite its cheap plastic and reasonable price. The feedback camera and Blind Spot Warning System are standard in all packages.
These features are also available on the SEL models, including Hyundai’s SmartSense security package. This equipment includes details such as the front collision escape assistant, Lane tracking Assistant, Driver Attention Alert. There is also a safe exit Assistant on the ultimate package in limited, so you can not open your door so bam on the side of the road.
The package includes rear cross-traffic warning, collision warning, adaptive cruise control, an 8.0-inch touch-sensitive information entertainment system display, navigation, electric sunroof and memory seats.
In real-life use, lane tracking Assistant does not force you, but is aggressive adaptive cruise control, as opposed to models that slow down heavy-duty braking, such as Honda Civic, in heavy traffic, offers a much sweeter braking.
Compared to last year, the entry package was $ 150, while the flood package was $ 550, the Hyundai Elantra continues to be a really reasonable option. The new features come at a really cheap price and offer a much smarter package than the crossover.
