How has the design changed?
Hyundai engineers have gone all in on making sure that the 2021 Elantra has a new dramatic look that is impossible to ignore. This Elantra is highlighted by divided body surfaces and a stance that looks like geometric crystals. By having three different lines that meet at one point, the dynamics of this vehicle are off the charts. Some of the highlights of this design include well-refined gem-like shapes, a bold fascia, a wide cascading grille, parametric-jewel-pattern grille, bold edge, 3 different size wheel designs, parametric-jewel body surfaces, a high-tech “H-Tail Lamp”, a wing-type lower bumper, and a wide horizontal line that extends to the edges of the car from the center of the trunk. You’ll even get interior highlights like slim high-tech vents, sport low-placed inside handles, and an aircraft-cockpit-like driver-oriented layout.
What engine powers this sedan?
The SE, SEL, and Limited trim levels come with one standard engine. This engine is a 2.0-liter MPI Atkinson Cycle, which can produce up to 132 pound-feet of torque and around 147 horsepower. The models projected by Hyundai show that this should achieve a best-in-class combined fuel economy rating! Paired up with this engine is an Intelligent Variable Transmission. This transmission is incredibly efficient, and simulated gear shifting that you feel in regular automatic transmissions. The transmission accomplishes this by a wide-ratio pulley system. Another thing to note is Shift Control Strategy, which improves linearity between vehicle behavior and acceleration.
What are some of the SmartSense features?
Safety is always something that a Hyundai vehicle will have in spades. Some of the standard SmartSense features include driver attention warning, a rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, forward collision-avoidance assist, high beam assist, lane keeping assist, and lane following assist. The optional SmartSense features include reverse parking collision avoidance assist, blind-spot collision avoidance assist, safe exit warning, smart cruise control, and highway driving assist.
