Is it worth to wait for the new Elantra 2016 or should I just buy the current model? My car COE expiring soon and thinking whether to just buy the current Elantra (91k)? Or buy a used car while waiting to buy a cheaper Elantra 2016 when COE drops next year.

The new Elantra may be more than 91k... new models sell for a premium plus it might have higher OMV.

If you like the current model you should just buy it.. As mentioned by fellow bros, the new 2016 elantra is probably launching in the next few months, this also means that the current elantra will be priced cheaper

 

Somemore COE is a uncertainty. Nobody knows for sure if it will drop in 2016. The government is the deciding factor here. They just need to lower or stop the vehicle growth rate and the COE will either maintain or go up..

 

Lastly.. follow your heart  [thumbsup]

For me to look at this car, the first consideration is price as compared to similar cars. Performance and comfort will be next.

If you want luxury, the segment is not here.

If that is the case, it could be a serious, serious seller.

As always, price will be the main determining factor if this car does well or not.
My take is it Shld be at Mz3 standard or Altis standard prices to give it a good chance to be a volume seller. Cos with turbo engine n 7speed dual clutch, it Shld be the obvious choice.

Price it higher n it would run smack into Altis n Mz3 deluxe prices which would make competition tough, my 2 cents as the more established Jap brands with their track record may sway it in their favour!

However komoco at times use wrong price strategy. I remember they price the elantra at Altis price. Then realise it cannot sell well.then price adjusted downwards

Possible but if i were them, I'd be aggressive n push for volume. Years back Elantra/Avante was amongst the top 3 models in a calendar year. But u could be right as always with new models, some AD get carried away thinking they can make a killing esp as not many turbos in B&B 1.6l cars.

Look at new cruze. The AD price it at 97k,just 3k shy of the Altis. Will it sell?

The turbo will be 5-10k above the Mazda deluxe. It would be insane to price it at standard Mazda as that would mean their other engine, presumably 2.0 non turbo would have to be priced even lower.

Even if that ensues, expect nothing much within the interior and tons of cost cutting mechanism, e.g.: halogen lights.

Of course no one would complain if your wish comes true haha

Dual clutch?? Next... If even Honda can't get it right on their hybrid vezel with dual clutch, (don't remind me of the afamous 7 dsg), I will not touch dual clutch just yet unless my coy give me 60 days of annual leave and 10mths of bonus .... Hehe... Why can't it comes with 1.4t match with 6At??? Which should be a safer bet...

Hyundai's dual clutch started in 2011. Not sure when Honda started since Vezel is a new model. Though so far it seems Hyundai is doing a much better job than VW.

Hyundai started pushing out dual clutch in 2012.... Just do a quick google and you can see quite a few models already running it for the past few years.

This is an interesting read for those who doubt reliability of korean cars. They have came far, its more like Japanese has stagnate while the competition has caught up close
