New Hyundai Elantra Sport sedan makes global debut. The new Hyundai Elantra 2019 was unveiled in a few months back. Hyundai has already launched the new 2019 Elantra in the US and the D-segment sedan will eventually make its way to India.
Now, the 2019 Hyundai Elantra Sport variant has been revealed will be showcased at Los Angeles Auto Show, happening later this month. The new Hyundai Elantra 2019 is already sold as the Avante Sport in the Korean market.
The same engine is used in the upcoming 2020 Kia Forte GT. In case you haven't heard already, Kia Motors is all set to make their entry to the Indian market in the near future. In fact, we recently visited the Kia Motors India factory in Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh.
Once launched, the new Hyundai Elantra Sport will be a strong rival to the Skoda Octavia RS. The car will be similarly priced too, but we do not expect it to make its way to the Indian market.
The Hyundai Elantra is a popular D-segment, showcasing a strong competition to the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla and Skoda Octavia. The new Hyundai Elantra 2019 is expected to be launched in India by the middle of next year. As for the Elantra Sport, Hyundai aims it to be a strong player in the entry-level performance-sedan category in the global market, rather than just a family car.
