The new 2021 Hyundai Elantra comes with manual, automatic or Dual-Clutch Transmission engine options that help you make the most out of the lively 1.6 litre and 2 litre engines that power the latest generation of one of South Africa’s most popular sedans. This has allowed Hyundai to introduce a sedan that now has a distinctly “sporty” feel to it, so much so in fact that the 150 kW, 265 N.m 1.6-litre turbocharged direct-injection 4-cylinder turbo-petrol engine that is used to great effect in the Veloster Turbo is now used to power the Elantra 1.6 TGDI Elite DCT Sport. Impressive? You better believe it, because this is a sedan with a difference and one that we know is going to take the longest serving Hyundai sedan model in the country to new sales heights.
