Top-spec SX (O) AT variant gets more kit; prices increased by Rs 23,000.
Hyundai has updated its Elantra executive sedan with more features, though only in the top-spec SX (O) AT trim. Safety kit such as front parking sensors and an emergency stop signal have been added, along with equipment like wireless charging, a sliding front armrest and AutoLink connectivity for the infotainment system.
The addition of these features has seen the price of the Elantra SX (O) rise by about Rs 23,000 – the petrol model now retails at Rs 18.78 lakh while the diesel model costs Rs 19.92 lakh.
The Elantra is available with a 152hp, 2.0-litre petrol engine and a 128hp, 1.6-litre diesel engine, both of which come with the option of either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed torque convertor automatic transmission.
Hyundai’s executive sedan, which is priced between Rs 13.69 lakh and Rs 19.92 lakh, locks horns with the likes of the Skoda Octavia (Rs 15.99-25.25 lakh) and the Toyota Corolla Altis (Rs 16.27-20.01 lakh), and will also compete with the upcoming Honda Civic when it arrives in early 2019.
