The seven-generation Hyundai Elantra’s world premiere will take place in several days, on March 17.
Meanwhile, the automaker has released two teaser images and a short video. The new Elantra showcases a ‘Parametric Dynamics’ theme “returning to its sports-sedan roots.” It rides on a new platform.
The next-generation compact sedan is longer, lower and wider than the current model, which was launched in 2017 and updated for 2019. Such a short life cycle means that Hyundai wants to be in line with strong rivals like the Honda Civic or the Toyota Corolla.
The current 2020 Elantra costs between $18,950-$23,800. It is #7 in the Compact Cars category in the ranking of U.S. News & World Report. Combined with its below-average base price, the Elantra is a solid value in this competitive class.
The 2021 Hyundai Elantra’s world premiere press conference takes place on March 17 at 7 p.m. PT, at the Lot Studios in West Hollywood, California, and will be livestreamed around the world at www.hyundai.com/worldwide/ or Hyundai’s social media channels.
