Overview

       

The Hyundai Elantra has always delivered a lot of car at an affordable price, and that continues with the 2020 model year. Its most noteworthy changes include expansion of the active-safety technology bundle to the base trim and a new Smartstream continuously variable transmission (CVT) that plays a big role in the Elantra's stellar fuel economy. It's also a fine-looking sedan, with a modern and athletic appearance, but you probably noticed that on your own.

Engines and Transmissions

   

There are six trim choices for this latest incarnation of the Hyundai Elantra: the SE, SEL, Value Edition, Eco, Limited, and Sport. All but the Eco and Sport get a powertrain combo of a 2.0-liter 147 horsepower four-cylinder and the aforementioned CVT. Hyundai appropriately calls it the Intelligently Variable Transmission (IVT) and has designed it for efficiency, responsiveness, and smoothness.

   

The Eco trim gets a turbocharged 128 hp four-cylinder that makes more torque than the base engine (156 lb.-ft. versus 132 lb.-ft.), thanks to that turbo boost. This powerplant combines with a dual-clutch automatic transmission to let the Eco trim reach an EPA-estimated 41 mpg on the highway and 33 mpg around town. The Sport trim also receives a turbo-charged four-cylinder, but this one is a 1.6-liter making 201 horses and 195 lb.-ft. of torque. It's paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission.

   
   
       

   
   

Standard Equipment by Trim Level

   

The SE offers more than many of its rival base models, with Hyundai's proprietary IVT technology, a standard package of driver-assist features, Bluetooth functionality for hands-free phone use, a drive mode selector, a tire pressure monitor, a driver attention warning system, and dual-zone automatic climate control with auto defogger and a built-in ionizer for clean cabin air. The SEL adds 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, a hood insulator, disc brakes, a tire pressure monitoring system with individual wheel sensors, a voice recognition feature for the Bluetooth, SiriusXM satellite radio (with three-month trial subscription), and both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Value Edition has been named well, as it packs in features like a power sunroof, leather steering wheel wrapping, heated front seats, approach lights in the exterior door handles, a hands-free trunk opening feature, and Hyundai's Blue Link Connected Care & Remote Package (with three-year subscription).

   

The Eco receives LED daytime running lights and the stop-and-go feature to save fuel during idling but goes back to the 15-inch wheels and drum brakes found on the base trim. The power sunroof is optional on the Limited but it gets nice standard equipment in the form of leather seating surfaces, an 8-way power driver's seat with lumbar support, 17-inch alloy wheels, a top-shelf audio system with eight speakers, LED headlights, chrome exterior molding along the beltline, and turn-signal indicators on the side mirrors. The Sport is enhanced with special performance features, including a multi-link rear suspension, upgraded tires on 18-inch alloy wheels, performance brakes with larger front rotors, and special track-inspired front seats and steering wheel.

   
   

Safety

   

As we mentioned, the active safety package is now standard even on the base SE, bundling a driver attention monitor, a forward collision avoidance system, and lane keep assist. The other trims also get a blind-spot system with rear cross-traffic monitor. The Limited trim is eligible for adding adaptive cruise control, pedestrian detection, and safe exit assist, which prohibits back-seat passengers from opening the door on the side of traffic when a vehicle is approaching.
