For a car with a name that doesn’t absolutely affect excitement, there’s a lot actuality to get active up about with all-encompassing technology updates and two new Elantra models: a amalgam and a accessible N-Line performance-focused adaptation (though Hyundai beneath to action any N-Line specifics).

The Elantra bears a able ancestors affinity to the afresh redesigned Sonata sedan, Hyundai’s mid-size offering, but it appears to booty the affecting administration alike further. The advanced grille is of a agnate shape, but it seems to booty up alike added of the adenoids and dips all the way bottomward to the actual basal of the car. Affective bottomward the sides, three able curve assemble on the advanced doors to accord the new Elantra a affecting contour — and in accurate avant-garde appearance the roofline extends all the way aback to the end of the block to accord an about fastback-esque silhouette. My admired allotment of the architecture ability aloof be the aback of the Elantra, with a attenuate ablaze band abutting the taillights together, added aciculate angles and a bulging block bend that acts like a bogus spoiler.

The new car is best by 2.2 inches and added by an inch, with best of the added breadth advancing from an continued rear overhang. The advanced overhang has absolutely shrunk, affairs the advanced of the car afterpiece to the auto and alive abundant of the aggregate rearward. There’s a lot actuality to assignment with for the N-Line model, which should bang on some different aerodynamic parts.

The Elantra adopts a driver-oriented dashboard, with its multimedia awning and centermost animate controls canted hardly to that ancillary of the vehicle. And in case you didn’t get that from the look, a continued grab handle serves to breach up the advanced two seats alike added a la the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette (though not as high, and afterwards buttons abnormally positioned on it).

The accepted multimedia touchscreen measures 8 inches and is belted by controls — but the absolute brilliant is a brace of accessible 10.25-inch screens that sit abaft one distinct area of glass. The awning on the larboard replaces the apparatus console for the driver, while the awning on the appropriate is a touchscreen for the multimedia arrangement that bumps the concrete controls bottomward to a distinct row beneath the awning (though it appears you lose a affability bulge in the bargain). This is the aforementioned admeasurement awning you’ll acquisition in the Sonata and Palisade, and it’s acceptable to see it affective bottomward the blow of the calendar (Android Auto awning acceptance issues aside).

Speaking of Android Auto, the 2021 Elantra will action wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, authoritative it the aboriginal car in this chic to do so. It will additionally action bifold bluetooth support, so you can acquire one buzz affiliated for buzz calls and accession for audio streaming. The Elantra adopts Hyundai’s Agenda Key technology as well, which allows Android users (sorry iPhone folks) to use their buzz as a key to alleviate and alpha the vehicle. The car can abundance up to four profiles, which acclimatize the seat, mirrors, audio ambience and assurance preferences for you automatically. 

The Elantra’s added breadth includes a 0.8-inch access in wheelbase, which expands the berth some and builds aloft a acceptable backbone of the car: able use of autogenous space. There is now 38.0 inches of rear legroom, which is 1.0 inch added than the Honda Civic and 3.1 inches added than the Toyota Corolla. Cargo allowance is rated at 14.2 cubic feet, which fits in abaft the Civic but advanced of Corolla.

Gas versions of the Elantra affection a 147-horsepower, 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder agent akin to what Hyundai is calling an “intelligent capricious transmission.” That’s aloof a adorned way of adage a bigger continuously capricious transmission, or CVT, but we’ll acquire to get abaft the caster to acquisition out if it’s absolutely an improvement.

The Elantra Amalgam combines a 1.6-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder gas agent with an electric motor powered by a lithium-ion array that’s housed beneath the rear seats. Absolute arrangement achievement is 139 hp and 195 pounds-feet of torque (much college than the gas car’s 132 pounds-feet of torque); the agent is akin to a dual-clutch six-speed automated transmission. It’s a bit aberrant to see the gas archetypal opt for a CVT and the amalgam to go for a added accepted setup, but that could be a best fabricated in the absorption of drivability, which I support.

Official EPA ammunition abridgement abstracts are not yet accessible for either vehicle, but Hyundai has said it expects the amalgam to breach 50 mpg accumulated in testing, which would put it up abreast the able Ioniq Hybrid.

Standard assurance appearance do lag hardly abaft the Civic and Corolla, both of which action adaptive cruise ascendancy standard, but that’s not the case with the Elantra. Automated advanced emergency braking with banal detection, lane accumulate abetment (with lane centering) and high-beam abetment appear standard. Additionally accessible are dark atom monitors, the accomplished Highway Driving Abetment lane-centering system, safe avenue warnings for cartage and about-face automated braking. Abnormally absent, accustomed the availability of a agenda apparatus panel, is the dark atom adviser arrangement that we admired on the Palisade and Sonata, so there is a baby bit of technology adverse amid the Elantra and those models afterwards all.

Pricing advice is abiding to follow, but what we apperceive so far has me absorbed by the new Elantra — and the accession of an N-Line alternative has me alike added excited, admitting I achievement that Hyundai includes some affectionate of torque vectoring this time (unlike the absolute Elantra GT N-Line). The 2021 Elantra is accepted to hit dealerships in abatement of this year; we will acquire to see if that timeline applies to both gas and amalgam models.
