Hyundai’s Elantra is a moderate sales success in Australia, but is the company’s global best-seller, thanks to strong take-up in the massive North American market, but that didn’t stop the company from tweaking it for 2014.
The major change was locally tuned suspension to improve ride comfort and handling over Australia’s rough roads.
The Elantra also received light styling tweaks, while the cabin gained a cooled glovebox across the range, plus sat-nav and a reversing camera that replaced the old electrochromatic rear-view mirror camera on Elite and Premium variants.
The Elantra's 110kW/178Nm 1.8-litre four-cylinder petrol engine matched with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic remained unchanged.
