New Hyundai Elantra to be the next big launch for India

After the launch of the all new Sonata in the Indian market, Hyundai will launch the all new Elantra which is going to be the next big launch from the South Korean car maker.

The Elantra will make a comeback in the India market after missing the previous generation. Hyundai had launched the ELantra in India in 2004 and then later discontinued it in 2008 completely. The fourth generation was not launched in India as the market did not very accept the Elantra. Hyundai had Elantra in both petrol and diesel engine options.
