Elantra-Sport-Edition-01

Seen this before? Yup, we showed you this Hyundai Elantra Sport Edition last month, but now it has been officially announced by Hyundai-Sime Darby Motors. The Sport Edition of the Elantra facelift is priced at RM91,928 OTR without insurance, and is limited to 999 units.

What you get is a four-piece body kit (front and rear bumper extensions, side skirts), twin tail pipes, limited edition stickers (barcode design with serial numbers 001 to 999) and a 6.2-inch touch screen head unit with DVD and Bluetooth functions (add on a reverse camera for RM300). It is available in Creamy White or Phantom Black.

If the wheels appear rather small here, it’s because the Sport Edition is based on the Elantra FL 1.6, which is powered by a Gamma 1.6 litre MPI engine with 130 PS and 157 Nm, mated top a six-speed automatic gearbox. The 1.6 wears 16-inch rims wrapped with 205/55 tyres, as opposed to the 150 PS/178 Nm 1.8L car’s 17-inch wheels.

The Sport appears to be based on the entry 1.6 Elegance spec (RM85,928), as it lacks leather seats and the front fog lamps that are standard on the RM96,821 Executive and RM101,555 Premium variants. The 1.8L is priced at RM115,616. The CKD locally assembled Elantra FL range now has five variants in total with this new addition.

All else is as per the 1.6 Elegance, including dual airbags, ESC, Hillstart Assist, tilt-only steering adjustment, reflector headlamps, steering audio buttons and manual air con.
