Hyundai Elantra 1.6 Turbo Elite (2017) Video Review

Hyundai has released an all-new Elantra compact sedan in South Africa. Its flagship derivative has a turbocharged 1.6-litre engine and, oddly enough, they've called this top-of-the-range model...the Turbo. The Korean brand has aspirations for a sportier future under its N sub-brand, so does this newcomer set the right tone?

With a peak output of 150 kW, it certainly has enough power to pique a petrolhead's interest. The interior has been thoroughly revised too, and now features a touchscreen infotainment system with SatNav. And this Turbo model features good-looking sports seats covered in red leather, with the word "Turbo" embroidered on the headrest.
