The Elantra has won not just the hearts of the Filipino buyers but international markets as well, establishing Hyundai's footing in their respective markets. Like most of the cars in its class, the Elantra comes with two engine options at 1.6 and 2.0 liters and is available in three variants. The entry level E gets a six speed manual while the mid-level S gets a six speed automatic, both powered by a 1.6 liter engine. The top spec L models get the new 2.0 Nu engine and is only available as an automatic. Base prices for the Elantra range from PHP 898,000 to PHP 1,158,000.
