Hyundai Elantra Discontinued
The Elantra had very few takers of late

Hyundai has finally discontinued the Elantra after months of dismal sales

Hyundai India has discontinued its only D-segment sedan offering, the Elantra, and has subsequently taken the car’s details off of its website.

Since November last year, no units of the Elantra have found new homes, thus prompting the South Korean brand to bid adieu to its flagship sedan for the Indian market.

In India, the Elantra was offered with 2 engine options – a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol unit (150 HP and 192 Nm) and a 1.5-litre diesel motor (115 HP and 250 Nm) – and 2 transmission choices (6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic).

The car was offered with features such as an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, connected car tech, electric sunroof, wireless device charger and more apart from a whole host of safety goodies.

Before it was discontinued, Hyundai Elantra was priced between Rs. 17.85 lakhs and Rs. 21.12 lakhs (ex-showroom). It was the sole rival to the Skoda Octavia which, from now on, will soldier alone.
