Origins via Hyundai As previously stated, the Elantra has been in production since 1990. It has gone through six different generations throughout its production run.
The seventh generation, which has been unveiled as a 2021 model, was revealed on March 17, 2020. Hyundai has given this generation the internal name of CN7. With this new design, they are aiming to take on the competition including the Honda Civic, the Mazda 3, and the Toyota Corolla while simultaneously giving the Elantra a sportier design. Stylistic Changes via Hyundai Whenever someone looks at the new Elantra compared to the sixth generation, they will notice that it looks substantially different from the previous model.

The display even has a Qi wireless device charging feature, which allows someone to charge their device without the hassle of having to plug it in. Of course, the 10-inch displays are only an option. The 8-inch (20.3-cm) are what come standard, but still have wireless capabilities. Improved Performance And Fuel Economy via Hyundai Due to the fact that Hyundai has lowered the ride height of the Elantra, the fuel economy has seen a noticeable improvement. In fact, the fuel economy of last year's model was rated at 33 MPG in the city, and 41 MPG on the highway. The base model shares the same engine as the 2020 model, and this engine is a 2 liter Nu MPi straight-4 that produces 147 horsepower (110 kilowatts) and 132 pound-feet (179 newton-meters) of torque.
Hyundai have also added a hybrid model to the lineup. The hybrid is powered by a 1.6 liter straight-4 combined with an electric motor to produce a total of 139 horsepower (103.6 kilowatts) and 195 pound-feet (264.4 newton meters) of torque. The only transmission available for the new Elantra is a continuously variable transmission (CVT). This means that Hyundai have dropped the manual transmission option for this car. Digital Key via Hyundai One interesting feature is the fact that this car does not require a traditional key to start it up. Instead, it utilizes a special digital key that's included on a special app for Android phones, and this key is used to open the car and even start it up. The app also allows the driver to share the digital key with family and friends. New Safety Features via Hyundai Hyundai have updated the Elantra with new safety features. One of which is an automated emergency braking system with pedestrian detection. This car is also equipped with lane keep assist and even lane following assist that utilizes electronic steering inputs in order to keep the car centered in its lane. It's also fitted with automatic high beams. Another interesting feature is the driver attention warning that is able to detect driver fatigue. The new Elantra is slated to enter production in South Korea and Alabama in autumn of 2020, and will go on sale at the end of the year. SC: https://www.hotcars.com/
