What do I need to know?

The Hyundai Elantra is a C-segment sedan that competes against the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla Altis, but being imported from Korea (Ulsan plant), it will inevitably be priced closer to the Japan-made Mazda 3. So don't expect it to be cheap.

It is quite a looker

In terms of design, this Korean sedan looks a lot more flamboyant than its Japanese rivals. It's well equipped too. Safety features is on par with a Honda Civic, while its interior looks as expensive as a Mazda 3, but cabin space is lot more spacious and is more practical than the Mazda 3.

Alright, does the all-new Hyundai Elantra get new colours?
