Hyundai is preparing a thorough refresh for its Elantra compact car line for 2014 Hyundai Elantra. Expected to debut as soon as the Los Angeles Auto Show this fall, the revised Elantra will gain styling more like its bigger Azera brother, as well as a revised interior.
Though the Elantra already offers several features many of its competitors lack, one or more new amenities may be added for 2014 and/or existing conveniences revised to help Hyundai keep the car ahead of the pack in that regard.
Release Date and Price
Meanwhile some rumors told that 2014 Hyundai Elantra release date will be in late this year.Base or standard price to purchase new Hyundai Elantra is about $17,470 – $21,910. The price may be different from one source to others, but it is estimation price. Correctly, it is suitable price because you will obtain great features in that car. We promise that we will update soon after Hyundai announces 2014 Hyundai Elantra release date.
Under the hood, the revised Hyundai Elantra will likely gain a 1,6L T-GDI turbo engine, which is already available in the 2014 Kia Forte.
The highly-potent 1,6L GDI turbocharged unit generates 201-horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque. Latest rumors also suggest that Hyundai might offer the 2014 Elantra facelift with a 2,0L GDI four-cylinder engine. The 173-horsepower engine is already available in a 2014 Kia Forte sedan (built on the same platform as Elantra). The current 1,8L four-cylinder engine is expected to carry over from the current model.
Fuel economy for the base 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine should remain unchanged, which means an estimated rating of 30/40/34 mpg city/highway/combined for the sedan with either the standard six-speed manual or available six-speed automatic. This should again place the Elantra among the fuel-saving leaders in the compact class. The coupe, meanwhile, will likely get a just-as-impressive 29/40/33 mpg with the manual and 28/39/32 with automatic. The hatchback GT model should again be rated at 27/39/31 with the manual and 28/39/32 with automatic.
Assuming a new direct fuel-injected 2.0-liter engine is added to the 2014 Elantra’s lineup, we would expect it to be rated at around 27/37/32 with either transmission.
The front bumper and the foglamps are likely to be revised. Headlamps get new detailing which look more premium than that of the current car. As with most facelifts, the alloy wheel pattern has changed to a more interesting design.
Interior and Features
The Hyundai Elantra already comes well equipped and offers several high-end features, including heated seats, a rearview camera, GPS navigation system with real-time traffic and travel information, and Hyundai’s OnStar-like BlueLink telematics system.
