BS6 Hyundai Elantra diesel launched

Hyundai Motor India today launched the diesel variant of the 2020 BS6 Hyundai Elantra at a starting price of Rs 18.7 lakh (ex-showroom). The BS6 Elantra diesel comes with a 1.5-litre U2 CRDi engine with the option of a six-speed automatic or manual transmission. Hyundai Elantra also boasts first-in-segment features such as Hyundai BlueLink which makes it the first fully connected sedan in its segment, wireless phone charger, LED quad projector headlamps with LED DRLs, front ventilated seats, and chrome door handles with pocket light.

Hyundai India now has an online platform called ‘Click to Buy’ for customers to book or make a purchase and have their car home delivered. The 2020 Elantra comes with a 3-year Hyundai Premium Assurance Package that comprises 3-year/30,000-km complimentary maintenance, 3-year roadside assistance, 3-year Hyundai BlueLink/map subscription and 1 Subhaarambh (home visit). Additionally, Hyundai is also offering the Elantra ‘Wonder’ warranty options – 3-year/unlimited km or 4 years/60,000 km or 5 years/50,000 km.

The 2020 Hyundai Elantra retains Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language with a hexagonal grille, full volume wheel arches, and strong character lines at the side. The diesel trim is powered by a BS6 1,493cc U2 CRDi engine that makes 115 hp at 4,000 rpm and 250 at 1,500-2,750 rpm.

Hyundai has been leading the way with cleaner and efficient technologies such as its line-up of BS6 powertrains. The brand is also providing an improved value proposition for existing petrol BS6 powertrain options on Elantra, SS Kim, MD & CEO, Hyundai Motor India Ltd., said.

The new Hyundai Elantra diesel will be sold in two trims – SX and SX (O). Unlike petrol, the SX is the manual one whereas the SX (O) gets the AT. There is no change in the feature list from the petrol version. Desk: Asianet Online
