2021 Hyundai Elantra Review
Armed with a bold new look, an upscale cabin, and several available engines, the 2021 Hyundai Elantra hits the market as one of the top-ranking compact sedans. The Elantra caters to the needs of both family-oriented drivers and young drivers with heaps of standard driver-assistance features and tech upgrades.
Drivers in Burleson, Fort Worth, and Benbrook can find out more about the performance, design, and features of the Elantra with this 2021 Hyundai Elantra review from Hiley Hyundai of Burleson.
The Elantra comes with a standard 147-horsepower engine, front-wheel drive, and a continuously variable automatic transmission. If you want more power, you can upgrade to the performance-oriented N Line model, which features a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder mated to a six- or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. While both engines offer the power for city and highway driving, the N Line pulls ahead with perky acceleration and athletic handling.
The other engine option is a hybrid model that uses a 1.6-liter four-cylinder with an electric motor that produces 139 horsepower. This engine mates exclusively to a six-speed automatic transmission.
Interior Design and Comfort
The 2021 Elantra burst onto the scene with dramatic redesigns of its exterior and interior. Favoring a minimalist style, the interior boasts a wrap dashboard and center console with an LED strip. Both the front and back seats offer tons of head- and legroom as well as plush seating with adjustability. For cargo, the Elantra can fit multiple suitcases, sports equipment, or shopping bags in the spacious trunk.
The interior also receives a convenience and connectivity upgrade. The standard infotainment system features an 8-inch center display with an analog instrument cluster, but you can upgrade to a 10.3-inch digital gauge display and a 10.3-inch infotainment touch screen. Both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard, along with standard Wi-Fi, giving you the option to stream from your smart devices. Finally, a voice-recognition feature allows you to adjust the seat heating, climate control, and other controls by simple commands.
The Elantra offers a range of driver-assistance technology as standard, including automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection and lane-departure warning with lane-keep assist. Automated emergency braking uses sensors to detect vehicles, pedestrians, or other obstacles in your path and applies the brakes to prevent a crash. Lane-departure warning with lane-keep assist adjusts your position on the highway automatically to keep you in your driving lane, alerting you if you drift over into the accompanying lane.
Another desirable feature that’s available as an upgrade is adaptive cruise control with lane-centering feature. Working with automated emergency braking and lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control allows you to set your cruise speed and adjusts it to maintain a safe following distance from the car ahead. It also adds a lane-centering feature that keeps you safely in the center of your designated lane to prevent you from drifting too close to neighboring vehicles.
