Hyundai lantra

2000 Hyundai Lantra GLS Sportswagon Berwick Mitsubishi B3667

The first generation Lantra appeared in Europe in 1990.

Since November 1992, the range of power units has been replenished with 16-valve engines with a displacement of 1.6 l / 114 hp and 1.8 l / 128 hp. Both with two camshafts. Gasoline consumption of both engines in the city is the same - 10.8 liters per 100 km. The maximum speeds are 193 and 196 km / h, respectively. As an option, proposed KP "automatic".

In 1993, Lantra was upgraded.

The second generation Lantra with an elegant body, which acquired smooth lines, was released in 1995. The appearance of the car does not differ spectacular, but with all its correctness and brevity looks pretty parodisto. The body is made soundly, reliably and well protected from corrosion by double-sided galvanizing and a good paint and varnish coating.

The interior is a continuation of the exterior. The salon as a whole is spacious and comfortable; it is also difficult to find at least one acute angle in it, as in the outline of the body. Ergonomics is good, all controls are at hand. The dashboard, like the entire vehicle interior, is made in a rounded manner.

Passive safety doors and two airbags are responsible for passive safety.

After a year and a half, the model began to be produced with a station wagon and was called the Lantra Station. If the sedan provides its owner with a modest luggage compartment of 390 liters, then Station provided 360/1260 liters of usable volume.

Bumpers on all versions painted in body color.

The power units inherited from the first generation Lantra. The transmission was offered a five-speed manual or four-stage "automatic".

Steering rack and pinion with hydraulic booster. Due to the presence of the amplifier, driving a car is easy and convenient - both on the road and in the parking lot.

Suspension front and rear independent, with anti-roll bars: McPherson and multi-link respectively.

Front brakes - disc, ventilated; rear - drum or disc. It is completely reliable and informative in the vast majority of traffic situations.

In general, the second-generation Hyundai Lantra exists in six versions, formed by various combinations of two body types - sedan and station wagon, three engines of 1.6, 1.8 and 2.0 liters (this powerful 139-horsepower engine is not supplied to Russia in official ways), as well as two options transmissions - mechanical and automatic. There is also a fourth engine, 1.5-liter, manufactured since 1996, but it is not known outside the domestic market of Korea. For export Lantra came in two trim levels GL and GLS. Differences between them were observed not only in the colors and materials of interior trim. For example, the GLS was equipped with full power, a variety of adjustments to the driver's seat, adjustable steering angle plus ABS. Also on the GLS sedans, the back seat folds down, while on the GL it is fixed "tightly".

It should be noted excellent visibility, both at a sedan, and the versatile person. No racks obstruct the view. Mirrors that are not accessible to gaze.

Lantra has its own distinctive feature - this is the front part without any false radiator grille.

In 1998, in the course of the modernization, a facelift was carried out, which consisted in changing the shape of the optics, bumpers and hood. A chrome-plated molding passed along the side, a small spoiler appeared on the trunk lid, and the mirror housings became more streamlined. As a result of the measures taken, the drag coefficient of the car dropped to a value of 0.32. Bumpers are made of high-strength TPO plastic. In the Special configuration, the car is equipped with alloy wheels, tinted windows and an electric antenna.

In the fall of 2000, Lantra production was closed.
