Pakistani automobile users for years didn’t have much of choice when it came to buying sedans; Toyota Corolla, Honda City and Honda Civic were the only leading local sedans available in the local automobile market. But we have some good news! Hyundai Motor Company which only recently entered the Pakistani auto market looks towards making its presence known in the market with the launch of Hyundai Elantra expected in Sept 2020.
Hyundai Elantra 2020 might be hitting Pakistani markets really soon! The car is a compact sedan that is intended to go up against the likes of the Honda Civic and the Toyota Corolla Altis.
Hyundai Elantra is a no-nonsense car in the Hyundai lineup. The value-packed, compact Sedan has left its competitors miles behind in the race. Every Elantra bought is a veritable bargain considering the top-notch features packed in one compact design.
Elantra offers a smooth ride in general, and it’s designed for winding roads. Inside, this compact car offers a nice amount of passenger space and plenty of easy to use tech features. The engine lineup may be underwhelming, but considering the premium models and top-notch turbocharged models its a nice bargain. Elantra Sports is known to even make decent 201 horsepower.
2020 Hyundai Elantra boasts an exquisite design; it features a wedge-shaped headlight with a clean front grille and front bumper giving it a stylish and luxurious appearance. The 2020 Elantra sedan portrays an interesting blend of a family car and a sports vehicle with its curvy design. All in all, the car looks quite handsome and sleek.

The headlamps are Dynamic LED Quad Projectors. The front grille is also quite different from other sedans already present in the Pakistani market; it’s quite big, enhancing the overall look of the car.
On the side, the car features side-mirrors with integrated turn signals. However, the most noticeable aesthetic element is the chrome door-handles that give the car a regal look. Integrated into the door handles are pocket lights that not only give the car a high-end feel but also come in handy in the dark.
On the tail end, you’ll observe some really cool features like checkmark shaped reflectors and a radio antenna made out of a glass. Hyundai Elantra 2020 has a state-of-the-art tail light design.
