The 2016 / 2017 Hyundai Elantra has been spied undergoing testing in the United States.

While the camouflage hides a lot of details, we can see the model will have a prominent grille, sweptback headlights and slender mirrors.  Moving further back, there's curvaceous body work, a sporty roofline and a dynamic greenhouse.

Unfortunately, the sporty styling doesn't carry over to the interior as the cabin is fairly generic.   Despite this, the model has a new dashboard, a three-spoke steering wheel and metallic accents.  We can also see new switchgear and a relatively basic infotainment system.

Engine options remain a mystery but speculation suggests the model could be equipped with a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 177 bhp (132 kW) and 195 lb-ft (264 Nm) of torque.
