New Hyundai Elantra 2020 pricing and specs detailed: Mazda 3 sedan rival moves up in cost

The Elantra might not be long for this world, but Hyundai has given it a price rise.

For the second time in three months, Hyundai Australia has increased the pricing of the Elantra small sedan.

The Elantra jumped in price by $250 in March, and now it has risen between $220 and $340, depending on the variant.

As a result, the Elantra line-up now ranges from $21,960 to $34,580 plus on-road costs (see full pricing table below).

Much like three months ago, no changes have been made to standard specification, with a Hyundai Australia spokesperson telling CarsGuide the price rises resulted from exchange-rate pressures.

As such, the Mazda3 sedan rival is still available in four grades: entry-level Go, mid-range Active and flagship Sport and Sport Premium.

A 112kW/192Nm 2.0-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine powers the Go and Active, the former of which is offered with a six-speed manual in addition to the latter’s six-speed torque-converter automatic.

The Sport and Sport Premium are motivated by a 150kW/265Nm 1.6-litre turbo-petrol unit, which is mated to either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. All versions exclusively send drive to their front wheels.

As reported, the Elantra will be replaced by the new i30 sedan in the second half of this year.
