Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Hyundai Elantra

Matthew Keegan
Contributing Editor - November 7, 2020
  • 2020 Elantra available; 2021s arriving
  • Rebates: Up to $3,500 stackable cash
  • Finance: 0.0% APR for 60 months
  • Lease: From $129 for 36 months (SE)

Hyundai's compact Elantra sedan:

The 2020 Hyundai Elantra is still available and the first of the 2021s are arriving. The latest Elantra is all-new with a design that's largely ported from the midsize Sonata. A hybrid variant will follow.

The current deals are in place through January 4, 2021. We expect these offers will change as Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Christmas, and New Year's Day specials are always possible. If so, we'll update our information accordingly.

Hyundai's offers vary by region; our examples are for California.

Generous bonuses for the taking:

Hyundai offers $2,500 in bonus cash on most 2020 Elantra trims and $2,000 on the Sport. You can also claim a $1,000 finance bonus cash offer if you choose the standard financing rate.

All told, you can save as much as $3,500 on this car, for an excellent offer.

If you prefer the 2021 Elantra, you'll find $500 in retail bonus cash, $500 in finance bonus cash, and another $500 in loyalty funds. Your total stackable cash offer is $1,500 and that's impressive for an all-new model.

Zero-percent financing available:

If you're considering the 2020 Elantra, you'll find 0.0-percent APR financing for 60 months, which is an outstanding deal. If you want to extend your loan to 72 months, you'll get 2.9-percent APR financing.

Do yourself a favor and stick with the shorter term and pocket the three points.

Choose the 2021 Elantra and Hyundai offers 0.9-percent financing for 60 months and 2.9-percent for 72 months. You can claim the $500 loyalty cash, if eligible.

An excellent lease offer:

Choose a 2020 Elantra SE Automatic and you'll pay $129 per month for 36 months with $2,499 due at signing. Your effective monthly cost of ownership is $198. This is a strong lease offer for the sedan and one of the lowest-cost leases on any car.

The first lease offer on the 2021 Elantra is in place. This one also covers the SE Automatic. Here, you'll pay $179 per month for 36 months with $2,899 due at signing. Your monthly cost of ownership is $260.

Hyundai allows 10,000 miles per year for leases and charges a $400 disposition fee at lease end.

2021 Hyundai Elantra: Model Preview

Kelly Campbell
Automotive Analyst

Redesign Info

Although the Hyundai Elantra just saw a minor refresh in 2019, the 2021 model introduces a full redesign for the compact sedan. Much like what we saw for the 2020 Hyundai Sonata, the Elantra gains aggressive and edgy style changes. In addition, the Elantra will see its first hybrid model.

In terms of exterior styling, the 2021 Elantra takes many cues from the larger Sonata. Upfront, it showcases a large jewel patterned front grille and sleek headlights. Along the side are two aggressive body lines that create a triangular shape across the front and rear doors. Around back, the sharp, rather pointy taillights mirror the headlights. A light strip runs the width of the trunk connecting the two taillights and keeping the aggressive lines continuous around the body of the car.

On the inside, the new Elantra also sees major upgrades. Many elements have carried over from the initial images, with a clean look oriented around the driver. The dash carries a seamless design with air vents running from door to door. The gauge cluster and the infotainment screen grow to 10.25 inches each, with both becoming integrated behind one piece of glass. Technology upgrades include segment-first wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with Hyundai Digital Key which allows drivers to use their smartphone to unlock doors and start the engine.


Hyundai Elantra

Under the hood, the 2021 Elantra does not see any major changes. The regular gasoline model will carry on with its 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that is capable of 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. The new hybrid model will come with a 1.6-liter engine combined with an electric motor which is good for 139 horsepower and up to 195 lb-ft of torque.

Although it's too early for IIHS testing, we expect good things from the 2021 Elantra given its suite of standard safety features and Top Safety Pick Award for the 2020 model. Hyundai's SmartSense suite will come standard with automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane keep assist, lane follow assist, high beam assist, and driver attention warning. Optional features will include blindspot monitors, adaptive cruise control, and more.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2021 Elantra is expected to begin arriving at dealerships soon.

Pricing will range from $20,645 to $26,445 (including destination).

The Hyundai Elantra will compete with the Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, and Mazda Mazda3.
