Hyundai Elantra 2019 pricing and specs revealed


The revamped and revised Hyundai Elantra 2019 range has arrived on sale in Australia, with the angular looking small sedan adopting a different line-up approach this time around.

The new range will mirror the i30 and Kona lines with a new entry-level Go variant, while the Active remains and the SR Turbo model has been replaced by two new trim levels, Sport and Sport Premium. The Elite variant has been scrapped.

The range kicks off with the Elantra Go, which is available with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine paired to a six-speed manual ($21,490 plus on-road costs) or a six-speed automatic ($23,790). The engine produces 112kW and 192Nm, and fuel use is claimed at 7.0 litres per 100 kilometres for the manual and 7.4L/100km for the auto.

Standard equipment for the Go model includes a 7.0-inch touchscreen media system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus a reversing camera, Bluetooth connectivity and the Hyundai Auto Link system that allows you to monitor your driving style. Other equipment includes auto headlights and daytime running lights, tinted windows, 15-inch steel wheels and cruise control.

Stepping up to the Elantra Active will see the standard fitment of the auto transmission, and a price jump to $25,990.

The equipment list expands to include 16-inch alloy wheels, an 8.0-inch screen with sat nav and DAB+ digital radio plus an Infinity Premium audio system, power folding side mirrors with LED indicators, vanity mirror lights, a leather-lined steering wheel and gearknob, and rear parking sensors.

The Active gets a bigger 8.0-inch screen with sat nav and DAB+ digital radio. The Active gets a bigger 8.0-inch screen with sat nav and DAB+ digital radio.

Both the Go and Active automatic models will be available with an optional SmartSense safety pack, priced at $1700.

That pack includes forward collision warning with pedestrian detection and auto emergency braking (AEB) at low and high speeds, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane keeping assist and driver attention warning. The Go model also scores power side mirrors with LED blinkers.

Sadly, no pricing or specification details have been revealed for the Sport and Sport Premium models, which are both powered by a 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 150kW of power and 265Nm of torque. There’ll be the choice of a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch auto - fuel use figures are still TBC.

Buyers can expect 17- or 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, leather interior trim and slight more aggressive body styling - plus automatic models are expected to inherit the full suite of safety gear. We will update you when we know more about what the Sport and Sport Premium models will get. 

As with all Hyundai passenger vehicles, the new-look Elantra has been subjected to an intensive suspension and steering tune to suit “a variety of uniquely challenging Australian road conditions”. 

The Elantra retains the same five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty program, and Hyundai’s ‘Lifetime Service Plan’ with up to 10 years’ roadside assist and the same cover for map updates if you have a car with sat nav included.
