When Hyundai India declared costs for the Elantra facelift in October 2019, we realized it would be a petroleum just model, at any rate at first. Presently, data has surfaced online that proposes a BS6-agreeable Elantra diesel is in progress and will show up in Hyundai showrooms soon.
As we had announced before, the Hyundai Elantra diesel will be fueled by the BS6 1.5-liter, four-chamber motor that is as of now accessible in the Kia Seltos and will before long be a piece of the second-gen Hyundai Creta line-up. This motor is required to create a similar yield – 115hp and 250Nm of torque – in the official vehicle as it does in the moderate size SUVs. What’s more, similar to the Creta and Seltos, the Elantra facelift will likewise get a 6-speed manual and 6-speed torque converter programmed gearbox choices.
With the pre-facelift Elantra diesel controlled by a 1.6-liter motor that made 128hp and 260Nm of torque (which was considered underpowered for its group), it’ll be fascinating to perceive how the even lower-fueled BS6 diesel Elantra passages as far as execution and proficiency.
Data accessible online likewise affirms that the Elantra BS6 diesel will be accessible in indistinguishable three trims from its oil partner – the diesel-manual will be on offer in S and SX trims, while the diesel-programmed will be accessible in SX and SX(O) variations. Anticipate that the oil and diesel forms should have an indistinguishable highlights list.
Considering the BS4 Hyundai Elantra was evaluated between Rs 15.13-20.05 lakh, expect the BS6 Elantra diesel costs to be in the Rs 16-21 lakh locale. This valuing would set it in direct rivalry against the Honda Civic diesel (the main other diesel-controlled official car that will be accessible in the BS6 time), which in BS4 structure is estimated at Rs 20.55-22.35 lakh.
