First generation (J1; 1990Ц1995)

Launched in 1990, the Elantra (codename J1) received a mid-term facelift in 1993. The Hyundai Elantra was facelifted in 1992 for the European market, adding Hyundai's current logo to the grille, although North American models retained the previous year's look. In 1993, the vehicle was facelifted again. The third (second in North America) and final facelift of this generation occurred in 1994 for both front and rear fascias.
