Hyundai Elantra Competition

The Hyundai Elantra 1.6L will compete directly with the Toyota Corolla Altis 1.6 Special Edition and Corolla, as well as some other top-tier Corolla variants. It may also compete indirectly with SUVs in this price range such as the KIA Stonic, MG ZS, and Chery Tiggo 4 Pro.

There’s only a difference of Rs.500,000 between Elantra 1.6L and 2.0L; but, the difference isn’t related to their engine size only. The 1.6L variant does not have many features in terms of comfort (interior, exterior) and safety.
