The Hyundai Elantra is a very handsome and economic car and is viewed as one of the most top rated compact vehicles. Being economic also refers to its affordable price as the price tag which has been placed on it has always attracted people to this car. But it is not only the price at stake here as the car offers some pretty great driving performances and stellar looks.
With the release of the new 2015 Hyundai Elantra we see how the Korean Hyundai maker has learned a lot in the past few years and managed to use that knowledge into making a great car like this one. The Elantra now comes available as a sedan and a five-door hatchback They decided to drop the previous year’s coupe model which was a great move on their part, so for now the Elantra remains a two car affair.
You can see what Hyundai has done to its new Elantra vehicle through the pictures that we have provided for you to go with this review. The car has certainly evolved and promises to give better and more suitable numbers than before.
2015 Hyundai Elantra exterior
The changes of the exterior of the 2015 Hyundai Elantra are but a few but perhaps work efficiently on the vehicle. The styling of the car has been remodeled a bit and the new version uses the same design form the previous year but with some restyled parts on the front and back end of the vehicle. Particularly noticeable are the new LED fillips and headlamps, which are available with the Sport and Limited Sedan models.
All in all the design of the new 2015 Hyundai Elantra is an accomplished one. The car uses some complex curving design motions which are seen throughout the entire car from back to front. The only cut is made with the boomerang doors which actually give the curves a push forward. We might only describe the look of the new 2015 Hyundai Elantra as being very energetic and a step forward with the last year’s models.
This energetic exterior look is actually continued inside of the 2015 Hyundai Elantra vehicle. The inside certainly fits the outside impression of the car and is very much suitable. The drastic changes between the outside and inside here do not work and would have represented quite a fallout in styles, so the current setup is more than an appropriate one for the vehicle.
The crown jewel of the car is the center console which sports quite a defining shape. It is pretty usable and reachable and is very modern looking, matching the entire look of the cockpit perfectly. It is enhanced with an auxiliary jack, a USB port modules which you can use for your smartphones.
On the other hand the inside space is ample. Well at least for the front part or the people driving in the front of the car. There is room for maneuvering and the driver will feel great but the seats, although adjustable, do not offer that much lateral support. At the back there is enough legroom to go along for the adults that will be driving but if you happen to be taller there will be not enough head space for you.
The 2015 Hyundai Elantra will be lean and efficient as ever with the use of a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine under its hood for the standard SE sedan base option. With 148 horsepower and 131 pound-feet of torque it is more than enough for this car to be drivable and usable in many situations. The combination with a six-speed automatic or a six-speed manual gives the vehicle a very nice boost and enables it to spring quickly and accelerate in an ample way. The Elantra Sport option comes with a 2.0-liter four engine option which provides additional power at 173 horsepower.
Price and release date
The release date for the new 2015 Hyundai Elantra has yet to be officially announced but we estimate it being released any time soon. We can even expect it being released during the middle of the year. As for the price it still remains one of the more affordable cars in its class. The vehicle is available, of course depending on the trim and additions that it comes with, between 16.000 USD and 21.000 USD.
