The Hyundai Elantra has been on the market for a few years so the company is preparing to introduce a facelifted variant.

Recently caught undergoing testing, the 2016 Elantra has a familiar design but adopts a new front fascia that echoes the Genesis. As a result, the car has been equipped with a larger grille and restyled headlights. Additional changes are hard to spot but our spies believe there will be significant changes to all exterior panels including the doors and rear fenders.

There's no word on engine options but we wouldn't be surprised if they include the usual suspects.

The 2016 Hyundai Elantra will likely be introduced sometime next year, so stay tuned for continuing coverage.
