Hyundai’s new Elantra Sport has been spied in South Korea, and we at Joe Holland Hyundai love the new look! We were not expecting to see the vehicle until the 2016 SEMA Show this October, so the sneak peak is quite exciting!
The Elantra Sport is aimed at the performance enthusiast, and it has unique styling on the front and rear which create significant body changes. From the pictures, it appears to have a newly designed bumper and ride on a lower chassis. In addition, there are extended chrome trims and a diffuser housing a dual pipe setup.
There has not been a high performance compact model, so the Elantra Sport will definitely be a unique vehicle. The powertrain has not yet been debuted, but it might be Hyundai’s 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine paired with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. It may also have an optional six-speed manual, similar to the Veloster Turbo.
We may have to wait a bit longer for actual details of the new Elantra Sport, but for pictures of the spied vehicle, click here.
Hyundai Motor Group has partnered with Cisco to create new ideas and get closer to creating a successful connected car. They are currently working on a roadmap for connected car development in hopes of creating a “hyper-connected and intelligent car.”
Many automakers and technology companies are working on the creation of connected cars. Autonomous driving is also a big deal, as developments are just now becoming solid enough to test.
However, fully autonomous vehicles may be a bit further in the future, so for the present, Hyundai is working on car connectivity. This connectivity should be between driver’s smartphones and their vehicles. The company hopes to develop technology such as smart remote maintenance services and smart traffic controls.
The overall goal is to provide drivers with an increased hub of knowledge to enhance the driving experience while decreasing the chances of vehicle maintenance failure and accidents.
Creating a computer on wheels is one of the last technology frontiers to living a fully connected life. By creating a connected car roadmap, Hyundai is placing connected mobility at the center of customers’ lives.
