In many ways, the new Hyundai Elantra is the Korean car-maker’s most significant model globally. To put it in context, you need to understand that the Neo Fluidic Elantra takes on the big guns, viz. the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic, in that most competitive market of them all – North America. It’s a battle that Hyundai desperately wants to win, and so has thrown in all the delectable ingredients, including premium styling, a feature-rich cabin and wide variety of powertrain options.
Hyundai has been doing business in India for almost one-and-a-half decades now. With the new Eon subcompact car, Hyundai has taken its biggest swipe yet at the crown Maruti-Suzuki has held on to for twice that time. Here, we pit the two small cars who are the big contenders in one of the most hotly debated automotive contests of 2012. The outcome of this battle has ramifications for the outcome of the big war. Who will win?
Hyundai Motor India Limited has launched its all-new Elantra saloon with three petrol and four diesel variants. Prices for the petrol variants start at Rs 12.51 lakh and go up to Rs 14.74 lakh, while the diesel variants are in the price bracket of Rs 12.91 lakh and Rs 15.85 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
