The 2021 Hyundai Elantra Debuts With A Stylish Personality

Hyundai shifted up a level in style, performance, and style with their latest Elantra. It is no longer boring, and is Hyundai's second model to gain their latest design cues that stand out. It is a few inches bigger, and has a similar profile to the recently redesigned Nissan Sentra. It also has a coupe-like profile and a first ever hybrid variant. Hyundai hasn't shown the Elantra Sport yet, but we expect it to debut later this year with the N Line treatment.

The front end is completely redone, with a fairly large grille, basically no lower grille, the fog lights are smaller, and are just vertical streaks. The headlights are connected to the grille, and are angled upward.

The rear is also sharp, including cool lines streaming down the C-pillar and towards the connecting taillights. The side window is stretched further than the rear doors, which is new.

The Elantra hybrid is exciting news, signaling towards an electric future. The hybrid is not much different from the regular model in style, except for color options. The spoiler gives a sporty looks to Hyundai's compact sedan. It definitely follows the Sonata's footsteps.

Last but not least is the fully revamped interior, packing a new 8.0" infotainment screen and Hyundai's latest technology. The silver streak extending to the gauge cluster is interesting.

The amazing new tech features include a new voice control system, Hyundai digital key, Bose audio, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Safety features include High Beam Assist, Forward Collision Avoidance Assist, Driver Attention Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Safe Exit Assist, Smart Cruise Control, and Blind-Spot Collision Warning. We cannot wait for Hyundai's best Elantra yet to come out, and this might be the beginning of Hyundai's bold, new styling cues.
