The 2019 Hyundai Elantra facelift has finally landed on Malaysian shores, with the single 2.0L Executive model on sale for RM109,888 (on-the-road without insurance). Included in the price is a five-year/300,000 km warranty, as well as 24-hour road assist.

Under the bonnet, the Elantra is powered by the existing 2.0 litre Nu naturally-aspirated four-cylinder that makes 152 PS at 6,200 rpm and 192 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. The mill is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission, with drive directed to the front wheels. Unfortunately, the Elantra Sport with the 1.6 litre T-GDI has been dropped from the range.

As you’d be able to tell, the exterior design is almost completely overhauled. Features include halogen projector headlights, LED daytime running lights, 17-inch five-spoke alloy wheels shod with 225/45 profile tyres, leather upholstery, 3.5-inch TFT-LCD multi-info instrument cluster display, seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system (with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support), keyless entry and start and a rear-view camera. Five colours are available – Polar White, Fluid Metal, Fiery Red, Teal Blue and Phantom Black.
