Hyundai releases more teaser sketches of next-gen Elantra

Hyundai released multiple teaser sketches of the upcoming next-generation Elantra sedan.
These images reveal that the new model which is expected to debut in 2016 will sport a completely revamped front & rear design, while the side profile retains the couple-like profile.
The new model could be revealed at the Frankfurt motor show or the Los Angeles auto show.
Changes:
  • New hexagonal front grille
  • Horizontal chrome slats in the grille
  • Sharp crease lines on bonnet
  • Bold waistline
  • Chrome weather strip
  • Chrome accents for fog lamps
  • Sleek headlamps with projectors
  • Blacked out B-pillar
  • Larger wheels (Mostly)
  • New tail lamps
  • Rear looks less bulky
  • Boot-lip spoiler
Does the headlamp setup & the L-shaped LED DRL remind you of the Jaguar XF?
There are not much details available at the moment about the technical specifications, but the new Elantra is rumoured to get a 1.6L turbo-petrol motor producing 175 BHP of power matched to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. A new 1.7L turbo-diesel motor is also being considered.
