Hyundai Elantra tourer render 1

The sixth-generation Hyundai Elantra was unveiled in Korea back in September 2015 as a sedan. Wearing the company’s latest Fluidic Sculpture design, the C-segment rival to the Corolla and Civic sported new dimensions and technological upgrades as well. Now, the Elantra has been imagined as a wagon/tourer, thanks to master renderer Theophilus Chin.

Previously, the outgoing Elantra MD was sold alongside Hyundai’s i30, of which there was a Tourer/Estate model. The design seen on Theo’s rendering of an Elantra Tourer retains a large majority of the new car’s looks, save for the estate bit that extends towards the rear of the vehicle.

Whether the extension has any effect on the 0.27 drag coefficient of the sedan remains to be seen. Nonetheless, the added real estate certainly provides more practicality without disrupting the Elantra’s looks. The rear of the Elantra Tourer/Estate also carries on with the sedan’s tail lights (with matching graphics), albeit reshaped to suit the new bodystyle.

The domestic market (Korea) Hyundai Elantra AD is offered with a choice two petrol engines – a 1.6 GDi (132 PS/164 Nm) and a Nu 2.0 MPi (149 PS/183Nm), and a sole 1.6 VGT diesel (136 PS/306 Nm). Transmission options include a six-speed manual or a six-speed conventional automatic, with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic being reserved for the diesel variant.

What do you think of Theo’s render of a Hyundai Elantra Tourer? Something that might interest you? Hyundai’s previous wagon offering in Malaysia was the i40 Tourer, which was positioned above the Sonata sedan. However, the model has been discontinued here recently.
