Make Way for the All-New 2021 Hyundai Elantra
Hyundai has just revealed the newest 2021 Hyundai Elantra, and there's one term that got our attention: "Parametric Dynamics".
Yes, this nerdy, Physics-sounding term is significant in the newest Elantra, since it's actually the car's design theme.
Hyundai explains this as "having three lines that meet at one point." According to them, this formation is a "challenge" since it has been traditionally avoided when designing a car.
Of course, if you want to take things to a much higher level (and fry your brain cells in the process), then perhaps we can add in the more "X-Fileish" word here: "Immersive Cocoon".
That, again, is from Hyundai, mind you.
It's how they describe Elantra's cockpit--which they say is based around a driver-centric layout.
According to Hyundai, this "experience" offers "low and wide structures that go from the door and connect all the way to the center console".
Meanwhile, "the large interface consists of two harmoniously integrated displays that elevate the racing-inspired feel of the car".
Yes, Hyundai is making waves with its word play here. But if you're wondering why the Elantra is mixing Physics and X-Files here, then we welcome you with wide open arms (and an unabridged Merriam-Webster's dictionary as well).
Still, we do have to give them credit for their creativity. It's not everyday you mix Physics with X-Files in marketing a compact car--much less the highly-popular Hyundai Elantra.
And at the end of the day, you know the company did quite a good job with it. This can be seen even just by viewing its teaser image. You know it's good-looking, with all the sharp, sloping waistline and almost hooded rear windscreen. In fact, its silhouette almost looks like a coupe when viewed in some angles.
The interior also looks fresh. There's less clutter, and the center console feels more tight without getting claustrophobic.
Perhaps the right word here is "Intimate Casualness".
That term came from us, and not from Hyundai, though.
And we would like to thank Merriam and Webster's dictionary for that one.
The Hyundai Motor Company will unveil the latest 2021 Hyundai Elantra on March 17 at the Lot Studios in California. It will also be streamed live worldwide. Make sure to check out our site from time to time so you won't miss the latest news and updates.
