Hyundai Elantra- A machine with inexplicable power
When I and my friend found out that the new Hyundai Elantra was coming soon I could see the lust for comfort and luxury in his eyes so when we reached to a showroom to look at new futuristic model of Hyundai Elantra Really what an Appreciable thing with 2 Liter petrol engine from Hyundai.Its not a sports car but the engine sound are not too bad at all which makes Indian buyer to go towards it and Im much more impressed to back seat because it has more knee room and got enough headroom.The space in car might feel a little less to you because of coupe sloping roof-line at the back,b ut thats really not the case
not the best in class in term of space, But that's not really no reason to complain. however what is the reason to complain, is the Thigh support here at The rear seat is not really good.And then of course there is the armrest with cupholders. there is nice little handy feature here there is a space which has Direct access to the boot.btw diesel get all the goodness of petrol car That is to say, you get the electric roof, you also get 10 way adjustable electric driver seats, you have front two seats which are ventilated, The steering is adjustable for rake and reach, you get all the driving modes
Now both the engines-the petrol and the diesel are mated to 6-speed Automatic gearboxes,t here is also a manual gearbox
And the Torque converter gearbox in the petrol was really good really fantastic no complain there the drive ability in the diesel car feels a little better here because the low and the torque that is available and for the fact that the torque converter amplifies the feeding of torque. now,y es the brakes do a good job of getting the car stopped in time but they do feel spongy.
Petrol Elantra was doing 500 kms to the tank of 50 liter and while diesel Elantra was Doing 700 kms to the tank of 50 liter so it means that
Petrol Elantra gets a mileage of approximately - 12kmpl
Diesel variant gets a mileage of approximately - 15kmpl
now that brings to the suspension, steering and chassis bits.
steering has been made or has put into this, with number one priority-easy Driving experience for the user. And that seems to do quite well. yes, its lacks feel, it lacks feedback, now I suspect, and here I'm not so sure and yet I'm sure that the chassis is the same Although hugely worked upon because the wheelbase is the same even though the car has gone longer or wider. since the chassis has been so worked upon, this car handles a whole lot better than the old Hyundai Elantra. but that still doesn't mean you behave live racer-boy going hot into a corner. that's not really what is the car is meant for.
At the last when I and my friend went towards our home we have one clear thought.
"This is a good looking car"
