2016 Hyundai Elantra

This compact car is known under many names and it is available all over the world. However, the Elantra name is use for most of the markets, so we will use this name. This model is present from 1990 and so far we have seen five generations of it. Current generation was launched 2010, so everyone expected some changes in near future. It seems that 2016 Elantra will be the model that will come with changes. Testing model was spotted and it is heavily camouflaged, which means that new model will come with many design changes, compared to an outgoing model.

As we already said, testing mule wears a camouflage, so it is hard to see how 2016 Hyundai Elantra will look like. However, we can presume that new model will follow the design language of company’s new models. In this case, it means that most of the look will be similar to new Genesis’s look. This basically means that 2016 Elantra will come with new grille and redesigned headlights. Bumpers will be redesigned too and there will look much aggressive. Unlike those mentioned parts, taillights are uncovered and it is clear that they will get new shape, while rear fenders will be pretty much the same as those on Sonata.
