The Hyundai Elantra has been completely redesigned for model year 2021 and now has a lower, longer and wider body
The 2021 Hyundai Elantra has undergone a pretty thorough redesign this year, including a new style inside and out (a wider profile, more angled lines, and bold color options) and a range of new technologies. For the first time ever, Hyundai offers a hybrid variant of the Elantra; Hyundai also adds an N Line variant for sportier performance. It also won the “North American Car of the year”.
The differences between 2020 and 2021
The Hyundai Elantra has been completely redesigned for model year 2021 and now has a lower, longer and wider bodywork which gives it a four-door coupe-like appearance. It also has several standard features, including an 8-inch touch screen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, HD radio, an additional USB port, and voice recognition.
A 10.25-inch touch screen and a hands-free tailgate are now available. Hyundai also cuts down on the main trims, leaving only SE, SEL and Limited. To replace the previously available GT sedan upholstery, two performance oriented sedan upholstery (N Line and N) join the range. Additionally, Hyundai introduces the all-new Elantra Hybrid, which we review separately.
Some of the new features for the Elantra 2021 include the Hyundai digital key (a class exclusive), a 10.25-inch touch screen for navigation and infotainment (including wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay available) and a sound premium available Bose system.

For 2021, the Hyundai Elantra will be available with its typical petrol engine, with a good balance between performance and efficiency. The Elantra will also be available as a hybrid, aiming for a combined 50mpg or more. The N Line model will boast a turbocharged engine that will improve performance to make it competitive with the Honda Civic Si and Volkswagen Jetta GLI. The engine will deliver 280 hp and 392 Nm of maximum torque, combined with the 8-speed automatic transmission. It will be able to go from 0 to 100 km / h in just 5.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 250 km / h.
Hyundai Elantra 2021’s suite of SmartSense safety technologies include High Beam Assist, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Driver Attention Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Blind-Spot Collision Avoidance Assist, Lane Following Assist , Assistance for the prevention of rear collisions in cross traffic and assistance for driving on the motorway.
The Hyundai Elantra 2021 is a good compact car. There is plenty of space in the front row and most adults should feel comfortable sitting in the back. A wide range of technology features are standard, including wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The redesigned Elantra also boasts excellent fuel economy and a comfortable ride. On top of all that, it scores well for safety and expected reliability.
It remains to be seen whether the South Korean carmaker will bring the Hyundai Elantra 2021 to Italy as well.
