      One of Hyundai’s biggest reveals in the last year is the Palisade, the company’s massive SUV. The excitement apparently drowned out the news Hyundai refreshed the Elantra for the 2019 model year because the South Korean automaker is going all-in on a complete redesign. Spy photos show for the first time the next-generation Hyundai Elantra out testing.

      While this is our first look at the new Elantra, we can make some predictions about what customers should expect when the new car debuts. The next-gen Elantra will likely borrow design cues from the 2020 Hyundai Sonata that debuted earlier this year, which should assuage complaints the current Elantra is a bit boring in the design department.

      Under the hood, customers shouldn’t expect a huge departure from the current car. A naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine will continue; however, it may be one from the company’s new SmartStream family of engines. It’ll likely pair with the CVT and six-speed manual offered in the current car. A fuel-sipping Eco model with a turbo is also expected. However, we don’t know if the Sport trim will continue. Then again, Hyundai could replace it with an N Line model as it’s done recently with other Hyundai models. An EV version is also rumored.

      While the new Elantra will likely borrow from the new Sonata’s exterior styling, don’t expect such a takeover inside. However, we have yet to see the interior. Hyundai will likely update it accordingly to keep it feeling fresh in the face of stiff competition.

      It’s unclear when the new Hyundai Elantra will debut. Rumors suggest it could debut as a 2022 model; however, that could get moved forward for a 2021 model year release with an unveiling happening as soon as the Los Angeles Auto Show later this year. Whenever it debuts, the Elantra GT hatchback will be on a different refresh cycle. A new version of the hatch won’t debut until the Hyundai i30 is redesigned in 2022.

      I can't wait for all the "it's ugly and a design travesty" comments.

      Should've bought it last year. Its losing the manual, and the 2019 is awful looking. Even the cheap versions of the 2017-18 looked classy.

      Looks like Hyundai will probably play it safe here. I don't expect the big changes that Peter Schreyer brought to Hyundai long ago that made some Hyundai buyers more interested in the cars looks than its MSRP.

      This really reminds me of what a very modernly redesigned Civic could look like.

      Here is what a redesigned Civic should look like (minus the chrome mustache):

      The rear is very odd.

      That design is a bit nuts for an economy car. Way to bring something funky to class. The gauge cluster and infotainment are similar to the new Golf but perhaps done better. I love the rest of the interior, but wonder how good those plastics will be.

      why follow Honda's mis-opportunity...



      With the rear like that, IT SHOULD BE A FASTBACK.

      BTW, I really hate this generation of Hyundai corporate grille. UGLY!

      Looks like all designers left for Genesis.

      This is an abomination. Just like the Sonata.

      Elantra peaked with the 2012 generation. This seems like they are trying to push people to the Sonata. Terrible

      So ugly, so cheap. Must have blown the budget on the Sonata, which was not the right idea IMO. This will be the volume seller
