Hyundai ElantraHyundai Elantra (Elantr's Hyundai) — the car of production Hyundai Motor Company.
Completely new Elantra of generation of XD appeared in 2000 model year.
As well as earlier, one of the main target markets was North American. The design became less elaborate and more elegant. Its initial option was criticized for silly registration of a front grille. It caused the face lifting of 2004 (Elantra XD2) which mainly affected forward part of the car which due to introduction of two stiffening ribs on each side from a front grille became more aggressive and expressive. Also other elements of design of the car, for example back lamps and the dashboard were in addition mentioned.
GLS (on others simpler complete set of GL was offered as basic) was a basic complete set in the American market. It included rather rich equipment — two safety cushions, a koditsioner, the central lock, four window regulators and the power steering that very positively affected image of model in comparison with her predecessors. Besides, new Elantra was larger — more long and is notable more widely. Kia Cerato also has the general platform with Hyundai Elantra XD.
