New Hyundai Elantra (10)

The Elantra, now in its sixth generation, was unveiled in September 2015 at the company’s Global R&D Center in Namyang, South Korea where the car has been engineered and designed. Based on an all-new platform, the new Elantra is both wider and longer than its predecessor, which results in increased interior space. The new body structure also benefits from a stronger construction, apart from sporting a lesser drag co-efficient value (0.29) than before. The styling is all-new as well, and looks the part too, which isn’t surprising, because the design team was led by Peter Schreyer, who has iconic designs like the Audi TT to his name. The styling follows the brand’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy, but this time around, the lines are defined better, while the surfaces get tauter.
