The seventh-generation 2021 Hyundai Elantra is set to be introduced next week at a special premiere event in California. In order to get tongues duly wagging and attention properly focused, Hyundai today released a few images and a short video.
One of the key elements of the exterior design is the union of three lines of characters in a single dot on the front doors, creating what Hyundai calls its "polyhedral appearance". Said the automaker in all humility in a statement, “This formation is a daring challenge, which has been avoided in car design, marking Elantra's disrupter spirit."
Inside, the focus is on the driver with side-by-side displays for the instrumentation and multimedia system.
"Low and wide structures go from the door and connect all the way to the center console, while the large interface consisting of two harmoniously integrated displays elevates the racing-inspired feel of the car," the automaker said. The partial integration of the multimedia system screen into the instrument cluster, the contrasting accents on the steering wheel and the clean lines of the interior are particularly striking features.
