The latest incarnation has brought these two, well in line with the new breed of Hyundai cars bearing the brand’s latest design philosophy called ‘Sensuous Sportiness’. According to Hyundai, all of its future designs including sedans & SUVs will be embodied by this design theme. Defined by the harmony between four of the fundamental elements- proportion, architecture, styling and technology, its aim is to bring instinctive beauty and create emotional value and desirability in Hyundai vehicles.
The all new 7th gen Hyundai Elantra
The all new Elantra comes with 1.6 & 2.0 liter engine options depending on the market as well as a hybrid option on offer. It is either powered by IVT (Intelligent Variable Transmission) as well as 6-speed dual clutch automatic. The all new Tucson too, will feature a hybrid setup for the first time along with a 2.5 liter petrol engine with an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
Hyundai Elantra as well as the Tucson when launched later this year will become yet another addition to the list of cars to appear in Pakistan after getting replaced by a newer generation model internationally. Want to share your thoughts on this, let us know with your comments.
