What We Like

  • High-end grown-up cabin with comfortable seats
  • Smooth driving experience
  • Long list of features

What We Don't

  • Styling not as radical as some
  • No longer the inexpensive value leader it once was
  • No hybrid or electric version


What's New in the 2020 Hyundai Elantra?

For 2020, the Elantra drops its manual transmission option and gains a new continuously variable transmission (CVT) (Hyundai calls it the Smartstream Intelligent Variable Transmission, or IVT for short) resulting in a 2-miles-per-gallon improvement in fuel economy. The Elantra ECO gains the fuel-saving Idle Stop/Go feature, and the SE trim adds dual-zone automatic climate control, a 3.5-in mono cluster display, lane-keeping assist, driver attention warning and forward-collision mitigation. See the 2020 Hyundai Elantra models for sale near you

2020 Hyundai Elantra vs the competition

2020 Honda Civic -- The Honda Civic is the gold standard for this class, offering an excellent interior, a lot of new equipment, fuel-efficient engines and passenger room galore.

2020 Mazda3 -- The Mazda3 is among our favorite compact cars, as it offers sharp handling, sharp styling, excellent fuel economy and a lot of the Elantra's gadgets, plus available AWD.

2020 Toyota Corolla -- The Corolla is all new this year, with a sportier feel, more interior room and the same long-lasting durability. Every Corolla also comes standard with a precollision system, lane-departure warning, auto high beams and adaptive cruise control. There's also a hybrid model this year.

Used Hyundai Sonata -- If you like the Elantra's equipment and styling but need more space, you should consider a used version of the brand's midsize Sonata sedan, which feels like a larger version of the Elantra.
