13 December, 2018 – The 2019 Elantra brings fresh styling, new model variants topped by Elantra Sport Premium, as well as equipment additions across the range.

A crisp look for 2019 Elantra starts with a new frontal treatment incorporating redesigned headlights and the signature cascading grille. Rear styling is refreshed with redesigned taillights, and a sporty integrated bootlid spoiler and lower diffuser.

A reworked dash headlines an updated interior, with a Supervision cluster, a new steering wheel design, and new trims and finishes.

An upgraded Elantra Active gains features and equipment, including an 8.0-inch touchscreen satellite navigation system paired with an eight-speaker Infinity premium audio system – incorporating DAB+ digital radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

With the repositioned Active taking a step up, the new Elantra Go is introduced as a value-focused model, featuring a 7.0-inch touchscreen multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

A SmartSenseTM safety pack is offered in Elantra for the first time, as an option for 2019 Elantra Go (automatic) and Elantra Active.

Atop the range are turbocharged Sport versions. The two-tier 2019 Elantra Sport and Sport Premium line-up replaces Elantra SR.

A smooth and efficient 2.0-litre petrol engine features in 2019 Elantra Go and Active, paired with either a six-speed automatic or a six-speed manual (Go variants).
Elantra Sport and Sport Premium feature a powerful, 150kW 1.6-litre petrol turbo engine teamed with either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Every 2019 Elantra benefits from an Australian-specific suspension tune and electric power steering calibration, developed over thousands of kilometres of driving over a variety of uniquely challenging Australian road conditions.

“The attractively restyled 2019 Elantra builds on its all-rounder appeal, with a compelling new Go range-opener, a value-packed Active variant, and performance focused Sport models” Hyundai Motor Company Australia Chief Executive Officer, JW Lee said.

“With a SmartSense™ safety pack, Hyundai Auto Link, and upgraded infotainment systems the 2019 Elantra is an appealing offering, with the reassurance of our five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty, and Lifetime Service Plan,” he said.

2019 Elantra - refreshed style & new features

The 2019 Elantra range opens with the new Go variant followed by an upgraded Active model, both paired to a 2.0-litre petrol powertrain.

Atop the 2019 Elantra range are the powerful, 150kW 1.6-litre petrol turbo Elantra Sport and Sport Premium, replacing the previous SR model.

Drive is delivered through either a six-speed manual or optional six-speed automatic for the new Go model.

While Active comes standard with a six-speed automatic transmission, with Sport and Sport Premium offering the option of a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.

The SmartSense™ advanced driver assistance pack is available as an option for 2019 Elantra Go and Active automatic variants.

It includes Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) – City/Urban/Interurban/Pedestrian detection, Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW) and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW), as well as Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) System, Driver Attention Warning (DAW) and Smart Cruise Control (SCC)

2019 Elantra is distinguished by an attractive, redesigned front fascia. The new frontal treatment ties new headlamps into a signature cascading grille, via a chrome garnish.

The front indicators are now incorporated into the lower lighting array, and a restyled bonnet introduces a pair of crisp character lines designed to accentuate Elantra’s broad and sporty stance.

The rear features a new design for the taillights and a redesigned boot lid with an integrated spoiler. A new rear bumper features gloss black inserts, a crisply rendered lower lighting array, and an integrated lower diffuser. 
 
2019 Elantra features new wheel designs, including 10-spoke covers for the 15-inch steel wheels on Elantra Go, and a fresh 16-inch alloy wheel pattern for Elantra Active.

Inside, 2019 Elantra is headlined by a reworked dash featuring redesigned air-conditioning outlets and climate control dials, as well as a new steering wheel and a 3.5-inch Supervision cluster.

The cluster and multimedia units are contained within carbon-style extrusions, and there are chequered flag inlays for the instruments. 

Elantra Go features the 7.0-inch touchscreen multimedia system first offered in Kona, complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, allowing for voice-controlled operation.

In Elantra Active and above there is an 8.0-inch touchscreen satellite navigation system featuring SUNA live traffic updates and Hyundai’s 10-year Sat Nav Update Plan, an eight-speaker Infinity premium audio sound system with DAB+ digital radio, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

Australian Tuned Chassis & Steering
Every 2019 Elantra benefits from an Australian-specific suspension tune and electric power steering calibration, developed over thousands of kilometres of driving on a variety of uniquely Australian road surfaces, from urban roads to highways, freeways, mountain passes and country roads – as does every new Hyundai vehicle, with the exception of iMax and iLoad.

The calibration of the 2019 Elantra’s steering and suspension has been fine-tuned from the solid foundation that underpinned 2018 Elantra, bringing new components and additional ride and handling polish. The result is a more involving drive, without trading any of Elantra’s renowned ride comfort and refinement.
