Hyundai officially listed the Elantra BS6 diesel on its website ahead of the launch of the car later this year. As previously mentioned, in its 115hp/250Nm state of fashion, the diesel Elantra gets the company’s latest 1.5-liter engine used in other recent Hyundai vehicles. The machine is fitted with a manual 6-speed or automatic 6-speed gearbox.
The diesel version would be available at two levels of trim-SX and SX(O). The SX is manual only while the SX(O) only comes with the automatic gearbox.
Hyundai would also remove the entry-level S model from the Elantra line-up in an surprising step cutting down the total number of models to only two.
The diesel model conveys the same equipment as the gas model when it comes to machinery. The SX model packs in a decent bit of gear including six airbags, rear view mirror, auto headlamps, sunroof, dual-zone climate control, 8.0-inch touch-screen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, Blue Bridge linked car software, cruise control and more.
The completely packed SX(O) provides all the bells and whistles, like a driver’s electric harness, ventilated front doors, LED headlamps, bluetooth phone adapter, leatherette upholstery, and front parking sensors.
