Go to google and type in "2005 Hyundai Elantra", then click the "Images" tab below the search box.
If the cars in the Images look like your car, you have an XD. If not, it's an HD......simples!

My car looks like the 2005 but it is a 2006 Elantra purchased in June. Very confusing, so the 2006 has an old design and a new design ? When did the new design come out in 2006 ? What does the 2006 HD look like ? So this might mean that I have been in the wrong forum for the past 12 years because this is the HD forum and I might have the XD ?

How do I know if my 2006 Elantra is an XD or HD ? I bought it new in June 2006 .

Hmm,, no location seen in profile, as some markets change model before other...

IF USA,,,, a 2006 will be the last year for the "XD" chassis

More and more confusing. I just checked and my VIN also has "HD"

Why it is confusing is because the design looks like a 2005
Picture of car ???

I will say Canada 2006 was sold same chassis as USA, thus it be XD chassis

HD in VIN mean nothing

Yes, really because the VIN has "HD" and the design looks like a 2005, so how is this not confusing ?
It's not confusing because the 2005 model is an XD and your car looks just like the 2005 model. It's not rocket science.

Except for the fact that my car is 2006 and not 2005. So I guess this means that there were two designs for 2006, an XD and an HD or the HD was already the 2007 model and this is what is causing the confusion ? The confusion is that they shouldn't have put the 2006 in the HD forum . It should only be under the XD forum. Anyways I am glad that I have the XD because I don't like the shape of the HD

Look at the back suspension...mac strut=XD

Separate spring and shock and lateral links=HD

Or if sore back after one hour driving...XD, much better seats in HD, IMO.

Yes, there is always some overlap when a new model comes out. Manufacturers don't generally release new models on 1st January. And even if they did they wouldn't just scrap all the XDs when the HD comes out.

Well, I don't have a sore back after one hour of driving in the XD but I can tell you this, that it is a very itchy fabric that they used in the XD model .The seat cover is probably much better in the HD, lol


I can see that it is the XD model because it looks exactly like the 2005 model

Our 2010's transmission dip stick has "HD" printed on the red handle of it, does that matter? (only noticed today because I changed the oil in the car and checked the trans fluid while I was at it...)

So maybe here.
Post VIN, or check your sticker on the door or near there to see production date.
I bought KIA Rondo that was 2007 MY in May of 208 as brand new. Yet, it was made in March 2007. So...


Now, look on the pics - which one it is.


Red is HD, silver is XD.
