A Makeover for the 2021 Hyundai Elantra

The 2021 Hyundai Elantra is so much more than your average commuter car. There’s certainly a lot to get excited about. To name a few things, it boasts a fully-redesigned exterior, a driver-focused interior and leading-edge technology. This sedan is sure to turn your day-to-day travelling into a truly unique driving experience.

So, what do you need to know before it hits stores? We’ll highlight what we know so far. We’re sure you’ll be just as excited as we are.


The Elantra’s exterior is certainly worth a double-take. The Elantra features a completely redesigned silhouette, showcasing a lower and wider profile. Its contouring is angular, modern and sporty, creating a look, unlike any other Elantra model. The front grille design has also been redesigned to complement the lowered, chiselled hood.

The LED headlights blend into the grille and hood contouring flawlessly, and the LED taillights showcase a single light strip that stretches the length of the rear profile.

At first glance, it becomes clear that the 2021 Elantra has set a new standard.

You’ll notice that the modern redesign continues into the interior as well. The dashboard and center console have become driver-focused while the front passenger side suggests a more minimalist aesthetic. Front air vents now span the length of the dashboard, and it also sports a single LED light strip that runs from the steering column to the passenger side door panel.

The 2021 Elantra will come equipped with several standards and available entertainment and comfort features to enjoy your ride even more. It comes standard equipped with an 8” infotainment touchscreen display, compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It will also come standard with a rearview camera with parking and reversing guidelines.

If you’re looking to upgrade your drive experience, even more, you can opt for the available 10.25” touchscreen display as well as the 10.25” digital driver cluster. You can enjoy your music through the available 8-speaker Bose premium audio system, and you can ensure you always stay connected with the available wireless charging pad.

Under the hood, you’ll find a 2.0L Atkinson 4-cylinder engine. The Elantra is available in either 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed intelligent variable transmission (IVT). But the 2021 Elantra is ready to offer you even more powertrain options.

This latest Elantra will be the first of its model to offer a hybrid option. The Elantra Hybrid will utilize both a 1.6L 4-cylinder gas engine and a 43-horsepower electric motor. Together, you can expect the Elantra Hybrid to deliver 139 horsepower.

Overall, the 2021 Elantra is anticipated to provide great fuel economy at 46 mpg.


The Elantra will be equipped with the most advanced safety features. From the vehicle structure to its active safety technology, the Elantra is designed to keep you, your passengers and others on the road safe. As with all Hyundai models, you’ll find a state-of-the-art SUPERSTRUCTURE vehicle frame. The SUPERSTRUCTURE frame is made of advanced, high-strength steel that delivers exceptional stiffness and strength. In the event of a collision, SUPERSTRUCTURE helps to protect vehicle occupants by absorbing harmful generated at impact and directs it away from the passenger compartment.

In addition to this, the Elantra is equipped with Hyundai SafetySense technology, which will include standard features like:
