New Delhi: The South Korean automaker Hyundai on Tuesday launched its next-generation all-new Elantra at a starting price of Rs 12.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The introductory prices of the model would be valid up to December 2016.
Below is the price list of new Hyundai Elantra
Petrol version ( in lakh)
SX (O) MT—16.59
SX (O) AT—17.99
Diesel version (in lakh)
SX (O) MT—17.69
SX (O) AT—19.19
It would be competing with the likes of the Toyota Corolla, Skoda Octavia, Volkswagen Jetta, Chevrolet Cruze and the upcoming Honda Civic.
Sitting on a completely new platform, the new Elantra features major updates besides building upon the strengths of the existing car.
The underpinning pushes the performance and handling of the Elantra to a new level; the durability is also enhanced. Moreover, the lighter platform helps in keeping the cabin noise on the lower side. The extended length and width call for a roomier cabin, though it was never an area of complain either in the existing Elantra.
