2021 North American Car of the Year – The All-New Hyundai Elantra
We have just taken a few steps into 2021 and right away we have some great news come out for the All-New Hyundai Elantra. The All-New Elantra has been awarded the 2021 North American Car of the Year Award by the North American Car, Truck, and Utility Vehicle of the Year (NACTOY) panel. After hundreds of hours of test drives, research, and evaluation, NACTOY’s independent jurors voted for Hyundai Elantra, as the North American Car of the Year™.
Founded in 1994, these awards are the longest-running new-vehicle awards not associated with a single publication, website, radio, or television station. They are judged by 50 professional automotive journalists from the United States and Canada who work for and contribute to a wide variety of magazines, newspapers, websites, television, and radio stations.
Jurors began the 2021 evaluation process with 43 eligible vehicles before narrowing them down to 27 semifinalists and then nine finalists through two rounds of voting.
The compact car segment is far less popular today than it was just a few years ago and some automakers have abandoned it entirely. Not Hyundai. Jurors were refreshed to see that Hyundai was so committed to the sedan segment with such a wide variety of models in the Hyundai Elantra family.
