Hyundai has given a glimpse of the forthcoming all-new Elantra, designed under the direction of Peter Schreyer.


Designers of the All-new Elantra used “active character lines” to “evoke a dynamic, stylish and confident appearance, building on the global popularity of the model.”

At the front, the large hexagonal grille is paired with slim and sporty headlights for a feeling of energy, while the overall body has clean and refined surfaces and a dynamic road presence underlined by the distinctive wheel arches, which contribute to maintain the model’s identity.
