Hyundai Pakistan has officially launched the 1.6L version of the Elantra sedan. The new lower variant is aimed towards other smaller engine cars like the 1.6L Corolla and even some 1.5L models like the Honda City and Alsvin Lumiere.
The price of the new 2022 Hyundai Elantra GL 1.6 in Pakistan is Rs. 4,299,000.
As mentioned previously, the car comes with a 1600 engine, which is a naturally aspirated unit mated with a 6-speed automatic gearbox. The car makes 127 bhp and 155 Nm of torque. As a comparison, the 1.6L Corolla makes 120 bhp and 154 Nm of torque. For a more detailed comparison of both cars, click on the link below.
In our previous blog, we mentioned that Elantra 1.6 wont have all the features of the 2.0L variant has. The new car won’t have features such as traction control, stability control, digital climate control, electronically powered seats, drive modes, cruise control, push start, smart entry, and some other smaller features.
Features that are available in the new 1.6L car include, two front airbags, steering buttons, reversing camera, hill-start assist, ABS, and then there are some manual options like manual air conditioning controls, and seat height adjustment.
It would be fair to say the new car barely equipped to any modern standard but Hyundai had to distinguish the new car from the bigger and pricer 2.0 variant for people to consider the price parity between the two models.
You can book the new 1.6 Elantra GL 2022 for Rs 1,200,000 and deliveries will commence after a month. Let us know what do you think about the new car in the comments section below.
