Hyundai has brought the sixth-gen Elantra to the 2016 Beijing Motor Show. Known as the Avante in South Korea (Hyundai’s home country), the car is expected to launch in India in mid-2016.
The Chinese variants of the vehicle are offered with three engine options – a 1.6-litre MPI petrol unit, a 1.6-litre GDI petrol mill and a 1.4-litre T-GDI petrol engine. However, its avatars in other international markets are powered by a 2.0-litre MPI petrol and a 1.6-litre VGT CRDi diesel mill. In India, we are expecting the 1.4-litre T-GDI petrol and the 1.6-litre VGT CRDi diesel mill to find space in the Elantra. While the diesel plant is likely to mate with the EcoShift seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, the petrol version is expected to come with a six-speed manual or automatic.
