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.
