    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.

    The facelift for the Elantra, which was recently revealed, will also be brought to India sometime next year. In the meanwhile, the Korean brand will launch its all-new tall-boy hatchback, the Santro, on October 23. Hyundai is also working on two new small SUVs for the Indian market that are expected sometime next year – the recently spied compact SUV (codenamed QXi) and the Renault Kwid-rivalling micro SUV.
