Hyundai / Elantra / GL sedan

2000 Hyundai Elantra GL sedan Car Review


HYUNDAI'S new generation small-medium entrant is now prefixed by an "E" and represents much more than simply a name change from the Lantra we have come to know and, in many ways, like.

Still cost-effective, it is expanded in size, equipment and style to take on entrenched rival sedans from Europe and Japan.

It is also a better car to drive, though a gain in weight has helped blunt its performance in both 1.8 and 2.0-litre guise.

Model release dates: October 2000 - September 2006

The XD Elantra replaced the RD Lantra in October 2000.

The former RD Lantra was sold here between February 1999, with the "RD" representing a facelift and introduction of the 2.0-litre engine.

The J2 Lantra, launched in August 1995, was the first variant of the outgoing body shape.
