What’s New for the 2020 Hyundai Elantra?

2019 Hyundai Elantra shown.

If you've been shopping around in the Mobile AL area for a new compact car lately, you've probably considered plenty of sedans. We'll bet they looked, acted, and felt like all the rest, too. Hyundai Elantra doesn't.

Sure, it's got the advanced driver aids you need to stay safe on the road, from a pedestrian detector and blind-spot, attention, and rear cross-traffic warning systems to smart cruise control and safe exit assist. That's a comprehensive safety commitment.

It's also exceptionally comfortable, offering up to 95.8 cubic feet of room for passengers and home to a selection of premium cloth and leather seats, the latter coming optionally heated in front. That's not to mention capacious when it comes to trunk space. You can take advantage of up to 14.4 cubic feet for an Ocean Springs day trip.

It's even cutting-edge when it comes to today's technologies. 5-, 7-, and 8-inch infotainment system options, available navigation for getting around Biloxi, optional wireless device charging, elective eight-speaker Infinity premium audio, and SiriusXM and HD Radio to keep you entertained through Gulfport -- all are all testaments to that.

So, now that the latest Hyundai Elantra is back for the 2020 model year, with all these excellent features, what could possibly have been refreshed, revamped, upgraded, or otherwise changed?

  • Hyundai eliminated the six-speed manual transmission option, for one. It chose instead to focus on raising the handling bar from a six-speed auto transmission to a Smartstream IVT. The result is not only an enjoyable drive. The car also gets superb fuel economy up to 31 miles per gallon in the city, 41 mpg on highways, and 35 combined mpg, according to the EPA.
  • Our automaker also standardized Idle Stop & Go on the sedan's Eco trim. It can now, for one, automatically shut down the engine when stopped and start it again when you're ready to roll. It can also improve fuel efficiency while minimizing emissions. Factor in that dual-clutch transmission in Eco, and the bump in mileage becomes palpable: you can get up to a respective 33 mpg, 41 mpg, and 36 mpg.
  • Next, Hyundai Elantra SE got several new features standard, including dual auto temp control, a 3.5-inch instrument cluster, lane-keep assist and forward collision-avoidance systems, and driver attention warning.
  • Finally, five new colors are available to turn heads. They range from Shimmering Silver Pearl, Fluid Metal, and Stellar Silver to Portofino Gray and Calypso Red.
