BROSSARD, QC/MARKHAM, ONT. (August 30, 2023)  Hyundai today launched the improved 2024 Elantra compact sedan for the North American market during a YouTube news conference. Simon Loasby, influential designer and head of the Hyundai Style Group at Hyundai Motor Company, walked viewers through the design upgrades. José Muñoz, president and Global COO of Hyundai Motor Company and president and CEO of Hyundai Motor North America elaborated on the resurgence of consumer interest in sedans. Hyundai has a strong history of regularly updating its Elantra lineup and exceeding customer expectations. The 2024 Elantra goes on sale this fall.

“The 2024 Elantra is proof of Hyundai’s commitment to design-forward vehicles with innovative technology,” said Muñoz. “The car market has stabilized, and Hyundai remains committed to sedans as a part of our lineup at a time when some manufacturers have abandoned the segment. Our car mix is higher than the industry.”

“Our development direction was to refine the Elantra outside and inside,” said Loasby. “We’ve added customer-friendly features and created a more unique, purposeful, and playful character. We have emphasized Elantra’s bold, dynamic exterior design achieving what we call Parametric Dynamics, conveying new emotions to customers through geometrically separated beauty. Elantra has a new shark-nosed character that gives the car an aggressive, wider stance.”
