The Elantra first came into India last decade when the mid-size sedan market was not very popular. Sales were poor and the Korean maker discontinued the car. In 2012 things were looking brighter in the Indian market – much brighter actually – and the Elantra had undergone the fluidic design change to make it a very attractive car and so it was re-launched in its fifth generation avatar in India. The Elantra sits above the Verna and is marketed as a full size sedan. It comes with petrol and a diesel engine and a variety of transmission options. It competes mainly against other full size sedans such as the Chevrolet Cruze, Honda Civic, Renault Fluence and Toyota Corolla Altis.

I’ve always been a huge fan of Hyundai Motors Co, and always considered them to be a reliable and trustworthy car manufacturing company. However, I recently came across an issue in which the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has caught Hyundai for overstating the mileage a few of their cars give. The Elantra and Accent are included in this. Hyundai has accepted their mistake and plan to reimburse its customers for the pain they have caused them. This however, is a massive blunder and I would definitely not opt for purchasing a Hyundai car after reading about this issue.
