The company revealed the price of the Hyundai Elantra which is Rs. 4,049,000 and makes this sedan a very competitive option against the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla Altis, which have dominated the country for decades.

he Hyundai Elantra Price in Pakistan is Rs. 4,049,000 which which puts this sedan up against the Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic which are priced similarly but offer less exciting features and specification, including a smaller engine. However, it is pertinent to mention that the vehicle is twice as expensive as another new entrant, the Changan Alsvin. Furthermore, the new sedan comes with a 4-year or 100,000km warranty, whichever happens to comes first for that extra peace of mind.

This is truly a much needed addition in the local automotive sector which has been very limited and dominated by the BIG3 (Suzuki, Toyota and Honda) but there has been a recent change in the industry dynamics as new companies have started coming to Pakistan as a result of government polices which provide certain benefits to these firms.
