Expert Review

Overall Rating


The all-new 2021 Hyundai Elantra sedan has witnessed a complete overhaul of design and features. The upcoming Hyundai Elantra is backed with a lot of good quality features and an all-new looking exterior design which compliments the newly dressed interior as well. For those who complained of its lack of adequate performance, the Elantra N Line is seen to be a major breakthrough here with its range-topping performance specs derived from a turbocharged 1.6 L 4 cylinder engine. 

All these material upgrades will definitely pull focus from the existing popular sedans namely the Honda Civic, Mazda Mazda3, Toyota Corolla, and the Nissan Sentra.

2021 Hyundai Elantra Features

6.5/10

The 2021 Hyundai Elantra is expected to launch in Fall 2020, and Hyundai has confirmed this on their official website. The new car will be available in 3 trim levels, the SE, the SEL, and the Limited trim. However, very little is known about the trim levels available on the Hybrid Variant of the car.

The new car is also expected to have a new ‘N’ trim, which is quite surprising, as Hyundai is putting a lot of time and effort in a sedan, at a time when the market is dwindling towards newer segments like Crossovers and SUVs. The N line is expected to be launched with a turbocharged engine and is also expected to have a dual-clutch automatic transmission, it will be more of a sport-oriented version and will be a direct rival to the likes of Honda Civic Si, and the theme will be seen throughout the vehicle. 

Trim Level SE SEL Limited
MSRP $20,000 (estd.) $22,000 (estd.) $26,000 (estd.)
Features 8” touch screen All the features of SE All feature of SE and SEL trims
  Wireless Android Auto Driver Attention Monitoring  Hyundai Digital Key
  Wireless Apple CarPlay Blind Spot Monitoring Dynamic Voice Recognition
  Automatic Emergency Braking Adaptive Cruise Control 10.25” touchscreen navigation
  Lane Keep Assist Bose Premium Audio System  

The new Elantra is expected to be offered at a starting price of around $20,000, for the base SE trim and the pricing will go all the way up to $27,000. A slight increase in price is expected, owing to the additional features and the new body design.

2021 Hyundai Elantra Maintenance, Reliability and Warranty

The Elantra sells good numbers and is an important car for Hyundai, and what from what we know, it is more or less a reliable car. Hyundai offers a decent after-sales and service experience, and usually, the majority of buyers have had a satisfactory journey with the brand. 

The Hyundai Elantra has been on the market for quite some time, and buyers have had a smooth ownership experience, the car is easy on the pocket and offers a decent safety package too and it has consistently maintained a good score on the reliability front.

Reliability and Ownership Costs

The after-sales and service of any vehicle is an important aspect to be considered before buying any new or used vehicle. The Elantra stands strong on this front and it has proven its abilities over the years. However, even if some issues arise, the warranty offered by Hyundai is quite generous and covers the better part of the vehicle, claims too, are smooth and easy.

The Elantra had seen a recall back in 2017, for one of the parts in the brake assembly which had some chances of failing. Hyundai Motors acted quickly and initiated a recall; the issue was fixed and the Elantra was back on track. Apart from this instance, we haven’t seen any major recall or failure of the car, and it has had a smooth journey.

Since we have so many Elantra’s on the roads, it isn’t a really difficult task to know about the shortcomings of the vehicle, and you will be happy to know that we haven’t found any major ownership issue or a vulnerable spare that is too prone to malfunction. The car offers hassle-free ownership and after-sales and service experience, and it is one of the major reasons to make the Elantra a volume seller.

The Hyundai Elantra is intended towards the economic buyer, and it belongs to the compact segment, it is expected to be a car that is easy on the pocket but offers adequate comfort and features. The car is quite fuel-efficient and spares and service costs aren’t too high either. Considering the fact that the Elantra would be a budget buy, it is safe to assume that Hyundai offers the Elantra as a very well affordable package.

*cost to own estimation for a 2020 Hyundai Elantra Base model.

Considering a 5-year ownership timeline, we are assuming that the car is driven around 15,000 miles a year. Taking into account the fuel costs, service, depreciation, insurance, regular wear, and tear and periodic maintenance and repairs, and considering some probability of unforeseen expenses, we can calculate some approximate figures close to 28,335 USD.

Warranty

The Hyundai Elantra comes with a respectable, rather generous, warranty pack. The car comes with a 5 year/60,000-mile warranty, which covers nearly all the electricals, parts, and some of the accessories too. The vehicle also comes with an additional 10 year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, which is more than generous. 

Hyundai has a decent Roadside Assistance setup too, and it is quite robust, also, the compact segment is quite important for Hyundai and it wants to offer the best-in-class vehicle; evidently, it is trying quite hard.

Criteria

Period

Limited Warranty

5 years/ 60,000 miles; whichever is earlier

Powertrain Warranty

10 years/ 100,000 miles; whichever is earlier

24-hour Roadside Assistance

5 years/Unlimited miles

The Hyundai Elantra offers a warranty pack that is way more extensive and covers the vehicle for a longer time than any of its rivals, and there are very few vehicles that offer a comparable warranty pack to the Elantra.

Miles Per Dollar

So, after all the calculations we expect that owning an Elantra base model under normal circumstances would cost you somewhere close to $28,000, over a period of 5 years which brings the Miles Per Dollar figure to somewhere around 2.6 miles/dollar, which for what it's worth, looks like a very reasonable figure. The Elantra manages to be a very efficient and easy-to-maintain vehicle.

2021 Hyundai Elantra Buying Advice

The Hyundai Elantra is going to be offered in 4 variants, namely: the SE, the SEL, and the Limited trims and an expected N Line performance trim. The base SE variant is more or less functional but will miss out on some essential features, and the difference in pricing isn’t too tall, so it won’t be a very difficult decision to jump to a higher trim level. It isn’t clear yet whether the new car will have the sport trim or not, and from what we know, the new car will have these 3 variants. 

The Limited trim comes packed with features but reports say that it will cost somewhere around $26,000, which seems like a costly proposition, but once you look at the features and equipment list, you might feel that Hyundai has justified the price tag.

Is buying a used car Hyundai Elantra a good idea?

The Hyundai Elantra has been a good seller and a popular choice amongst buyers, and the last two versions of the car look really striking and have a very modern design. The Elantra is easy to maintain a car and as we asserted earlier that is quite reliable and has a class-leading warranty pack, you will be able to find some very good examples of the vehicle in the used car market which might still be in warranty and might turn out to be a very good value proposition. 

The features and equipment list on the previous versions too are quite extensive and the car has a supple ride. The motor and tranny on the vehicle are quite good and come with a 10-year warranty pack, so you don’t need to worry about that either.

All-in-All, we can say that the Elantra is a good value proposition and might be a good used car to buy too, however, the new variant is a major leap ahead, and buying the older car might mean that you’ll miss quite a lot on the design and tech front.

2021 Hyundai Elantra Engine and Performance

5.0/10

What Engine is under the hood of the 2021 Hyundai Elantra?

The new Hyundai Elantra will be offered with two engine options, a 2.0L gas engine, which churns out 147hp and 132lbfts of torque, and a Hybrid version that will have a 1.6L motor paired with a 39hp electric motor, which gives a combined output of 139hp. Owing to low sales figures, the eco and sport trim have been dropped for the new version.

2021 Hyundai Elantra Sedan Engine

The new Elantra will get a new ‘N Line’ version to satisfy the needs of the enthusiasts, which will come loaded with a turbocharged engine and will also be offered with an optional manual transmission.

The Elantra will get a CVT box paired to the 2.0L engine, while the 1.6L engine will come mated to a DCT gearbox, both the gearboxes are smooth and slick and most of the time, they are responsive.

The Elantra looks a bit underpowered on paper when compared to its rivals, and you do feel a bit sluggish at the beginning, but the motor pulls on later. The car isn’t underpowered itself, but it does feel a bit slow when we drive it back-to-back with its rivals.

2021 Hyundai Elantra Acceleration and Braking Performance

The Hyundai Elantra has a decent sized motor and it is very well suited for everyday driving. However, flat-out acceleration in the Elantra isn’t the best in class, however, we expect some improvement in the new car with the ‘N Line’ trim and the reworked motor. The car does feel a bit sluggish at the start and you do feel the rubber band effect, it is very subtle though, and otherwise, the engine is rev-happy most of the time. 

2021 Hyundai Elantra Sedan Accelerate 0-60 MPH Just In 8.3 Sec

It is a peppy motor, but it will not satisfy the enthusiast inside you, if you want a performance-oriented car, you either need to go for the N Line trim or you need to look at the other cars in this segment. The Elantra is a good family car, for a prudent buyer; it is functional and utilitarian, but that is pretty much of it.

The car has an unmatched visual appeal and scores really high on the features and equipment, but it fails to amaze you when it comes to the performance front. The car has 8.3 seconds 0-60 time, and it is the slowest of the lot, and the quarter-mile figures aren’t that impressive either. 

2021 Hyundai Elantra Sedan Brake Rotors 

The car handles well and you can have some fun within the corners, owing to the balanced stance and decent road grip alongside an adequately stiff suspension setup and moderately precise steering, but then again, how often do you think one would go for a joyride in an Elantra? It is better suited for cruising and comfortable driving rather than being pushed around.

The car gets ventilated disc brakes throughout, and they work pretty well. The car has decent stopping power, and it is in accordance with its segment norms.

6.0/10

The Elantra is quite a fuel-efficient car, and this suits its base of buyers as they want something economical and easy on the pocket. Hyundai claims that the new-gen Hybrid version of the 2021 Elantra will return 50 MPG, but how much of it materializes on the roads is yet to be seen. 

2021 Hyundai Elantra Sedan Instrument Cluster

The regular car with the naturally aspirated engine returns a decent 35 MPG combined and around 31 in the city and 41 on the highway, which is a pretty impressive figure and fits rightly in this segment.

2021 Hyundai Elantra Interior

7.0/10

The 2021 Hyundai Elantra is a leap forward, not only in terms of exterior styling but also in regard to the striking new interior. The new car gets a very appealing interior scheme, it looks futuristic and is a pleasurable sight for the eye.

Hyundai usually gets interiors right, and this one is no different, the car is adequately spacious and there are very few bits you can complain about. The front seats hold you in place very nicely and are electrically adjustable, they have a kind of swept-back feel and you really feel like you’re driving a really sporty vehicle. The layout of the dash too is decent and things fall to hands easily.

2021 Hyundai Elantra Sedan Seats

The rear seat offers generous space for a car of this size, but it does slightly cramp at some point and the under-thigh support could have been a little better, it isn’t unforgiving, but there is a slight scope of improvement. The seat itself is quite well cushioned and the leather feels really nice. Legroom and knee room are decent, however, due to the swept-back roofline, taller occupants might face a little bit of a problem.

How’s the 2021 Hyundai Elantra infotainment system?

The Hyundai Elantra comes loaded with tech and entertainment features and the list of equipment just goes on and on. The info display on the previous Elantra worked just fine, but with this new car and the new system, things have moved further. The interface is now improved and the visuals are crisper and clearer. 

2021 Hyundai Elantra Sedan Infotainment Screen

There are a lot of quirky features on offer and the system is going to satisfy most buyers. The new car also gets an all-new digital driver assistance screen, which though comes as an option, but is a great addition to the futuristic interior of the Elantra. 

Some of the highlights of the infotainment system are as follows:

  • Bluetooth Telephony with Voice Recognition
  • Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity
  • Dual Automatic Temperature Control with Auto Defogging System
  • Qi Wireless Charging Pad for compatible Phones
  • Bose Premium Audio System
  • Digital driver’s display

2021 Hyundai Elantra Safety

9.0/10

The Hyundai Elantra comes with a long list of safety features and equipment, and it has become a Hyundai tradition to make the car strong on the safety front.

The Hyundai Elantra is equipped with automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, active lane control, and automatic high beams, while Adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitors, and rear automatic emergency braking system are available as optional add-ons.

2021 Hyundai Elantra Competition

7.0/10

2021 Hyundai Elantra vs 2020 Honda Civic

The new Honda Civic has got some new add-ons for 2021 and is a great looking car, it has been a familiar name and buyers impart a certain amount of trust with the Civic franchise.

2020 Honda Civic

The car scores well on the performance front too but loses out slightly on the tech and features front to the Elantra, which comes absolutely loaded with features and equipment, and with the new styling, makes a compelling package.

2021 Hyundai Elantra vs 2020 Toyota Corolla

The Toyota Corolla has been a great seller for a very long time and is a no-nonsense, durable, and reliable automobile. The car has very few bits you can complain about and is amongst the easiest cars to maintain.

2020 Toyota Corolla

However, the car is losing ground owing to odd and obsolete styling and despite being a very capable car, it looks a bit dated. This is where the Elantra acts as a fulfiller and satisfies the modern buyer with its striking looks and futuristic visual appeal.

2021 Hyundai Elantra vs 2020 Mazda 3

The Elantra though is a great looker and comes loaded with tech, it does lose out on the performance front and this is where the Mazda kicks in.

2020 Mazda 3

The Mazda Mazda3 is a decent looking sedan and also packs in a punchy motor you can have some fun with.

2021 Hyundai Elantra Final Verdict

8.2/10

The 2021 Hyundai Elantra is a very capable compact car that comes at a great price and packs in a fantastic blend of stunning exteriors and comfortable interiors. The car is aiming to lead the segment sales and has been a volume seller for Hyundai, it has been a reliable vehicle and has satisfied a lot of buyers over the years. Hyundai, with this new Elantra, has stepped up the game and we have really high expectations from the 2021 Hyundai Elantra.

Economical and powerful

Pros - Excellent MPG, beige interiors, powerful

Cons - Side mirrors don't have blinkers, rear fascia looks too plain, led headlights aren't a thing

Overall Review

10 /10 Overall Rating

On my daily driving, I would fill up the tank full of gas for the cost of $23 which would last for 10 days if not more. In otherwords, this a a massive improvement from our previous car.

The performance is not good. I wish it had a little more power. Would have made a whole lot of difference.

Hyundai lost its way

Pros - Safety features, warranty

Cons - CVT, mpg, cheap interior

Overall Review

9 /10 Overall Rating

Buying a CVT was not a decision I? very proud of. Should have purchased the one with AM transmission or should have bought a different car altogether.

Ordinary, nothing special

I had high hopes for Elantra but it turned out to be nothing special. There is road noise in the cabin, the power is not enough, and it is very slow off the line.

Expected more

Mileage is good!! But it is not very comfortable to drive which was surprising to me. I never thought a Sedan as reputed(at this price point) as Elantra would make a mistake as big as this.
