The Hyundai Elantra grows up for 2021, with larger dimensions, more sophisticated infotainment, and stylish looks that give it a more upscale appearance. For the first time, a hybrid powertrain is available in the Elantra, with the automaker claiming over 50 mpg combined.
The standard engine is a 147-hp four-cylinder, teamed with a continuously variable transmission. The stretched dimensions bring increased leg, shoulder, and headroom. Connectivity is a key theme with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, dual Bluetooth support, and a digital key. The next generation Elantra packs a suite of standard advanced safety equipment, including FCW, AEB with pedestrian detection, LKA, driver monitoring, and automatic high beams. Blind spot warning and rear cross traffic warning are optional.
