The complete Elantra range has received a facelift, with a cascading grille, redesigned headlights and taillights, an integrated bootlid spoiler and lower diffuser.
Inside there’s a revamped dashboard, a Supervision infotainment cluster, a new steering wheel design, as well as new trims and finishes.
Hyundai Elantra Active now has an 8.0-inch touchscreen satellite navigation system paired with an eight-speaker Infinity premium audio system with a DAB+ radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
Because the Elantra Active has moved upmarket, a new Elantra Go has been introduced. It has a 7.0-inch touchscreen multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
A 2.0-litre petrol engine features in the 2019 Elantra Go and Active, it’s mated with either a six-speed automatic or a six-speed manual (the latter only in the Go variants).
The Elantra SR name has been dropped and replaced by the Sport Premium. It features a powerful, 150kW 1.6-litre petrol turbo engine teamed with either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Every 2019 Elantra benefits from an Australian-specific suspension tune and electric power steering calibration, developed over many thousands of kilometres of driving over a big variety of local road conditions.
Elantra Go: $21,490 (manual), $23,790 (automatic)
Elantra Active: $25,990 (automatic)
