The Hyundai Elantra is a compact car produced by the South Korean manufacturer Hyundai since 1990. The Elantra was initially marketed as the Lantra in Australia and some European markets. In Australia, this was due to the similarly named Mitsubishi Magna Elante model. This gave rise to a disagreement with other motor manufacturers, and the name was standardized as "Elantra" worldwide in 2001. Following the September 2015 launch of the Avante in South Korea, the sixth generation Elantra was announced to be released for sale in February 2016 for the 2017 model year in North America. Two trims are present in the 2017 model release: SE and Limited. In India, the AD series Hyundai Elantra launched on August 23, 2016 with gasoline and diesel engine options. Its gasoline variants displaces 2.0 liters, while the diesel engine is a 1.6-liter unit. The design of the car has been changed to a more conservative appearance. The fluidic sculpture design that persisted across the Hyundai portfolio since 2011 is gone in the sixth generation Elantra. The car is now more like a fastback with its roofline sloped from the windshield to the rear of the car and it has less curves overall with pentagonal head and tail lights, a hexagonal grille, and redesigned body panels and bumper emphasizing straight lines along the body. The windshield is drawn back from the hood further than the prior generation, making for a more traditional sedan look. The interior is also less curved, with a cockpit, audio/temp controls and glove compartment in a single bow line across the dash. This was done without reducing the interior cabin space of the prior generation at 110.2 cubic feet. Newly introduced for 2017 is the ECO Trim, a package which replaces the standard engine with a lower displacement Turbocharged 1.4-liter DOHC Inline-4, 95 kW Kappa engine along with a 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission that improves MPG use for eco driving customers. Also new, the SE model has been noted to come standard with less features compared to the prior generation trim level, and includes a 110 kW 2.0-liter Nu four cylinder engine and mated to either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. The SE Popular Equipment package which includes alloy wheels, cruise control, automatic headlights, and touchscreen stereo with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support and a Tech Package which includes LED daytime running lights, blind spot and rear cross-traffic alert system, proximity key/push button start, hands-free trunk access, and TFT monochromatic cluster display. In North America, the SE Popular Equipment package was not available on SE models with the 6-speed manual transmission. In the middle of the 2017 model year, steering wheel audio controls become standard equipment across all trims. A mid-level Value Edition trim was also added. On top of the Popular Equipment and Tech Package for the SE, it included a power adjustable driver's seat, auto-dimming rearview mirror, a power sunroof, and automatic up driver's power window.
