About The Elantra

The Hyundai Elantra or Avante as it is known in some regions is a compact car that was first produced in the year 1990.

These owner’s manuals will guide you through all of its features and functions so that you can enjoy your new vehicle to the fullest extent.

Globally it competes with other compact cars like the modern Honda Civic and popular Mazda3.

The original version was released as a cost-effective alternative to family sedans like the Ford Sierra and Vauxhall/Opel Vectra.

Now, the car is in its seventh generation of design and has evolved to be less of a cheap alternative and more of a serious contender against its competition.

Its most recent version (seventh generation – 2020) allows the customer to choose not only a hybrid option but also LPG, something that is usually fitted after purchase.

Customers also get the choice of a wide range of trims at the point of purchase including:

  • Blue
  • ECO
  • GL
  • GLS
  • GT
  • GT N Line
  • GT Sport
  • Limited
  • N Line
  • SE
  • SEL
  • Sport
  • Value Edition

The Elantra has gained a name for itself as a cheap way to get a good quality fuel-efficient family car, as Hyundai becomes a much better brand than it was in previous decades.

In Australia, the Elantra is actually sold as the sedan version of the i30 from the same South Korean automaker.
