Elantra's new look


The re-engineered 2016 Hyundai Elantra gets major changes to its sheet metal and proportions. This spy photo shows a longer and sleeker sedan, with bigger front and rear overhangs and a hood that looks stretched from the current version. Up front is the new hexagonal grille seen on the 2015 Sonata and Genesis sedans that will be applied across Hyundai's lineup. The tapered, wraparound headlights have been brought down into the corners, and the flowing creases of the current car's beltline look to be softened and straightened into a more traditional look.
