2020 Hyundai Elantra Overview

The Hyundai Elantra gets minor updates for 2020. It sits in the same class as the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, and Volkswagen Jetta.

The Elantra comes in SE, SEL, Value Edition, Eco, Sport, and Limited trims. They all feature 5-person seating capacity and 14.4 cubic feet of trunk space.

Three powertrains are available across the Elantra lineup. The SE, SEL, Value Edition, and Limited trims come with a 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder, good for 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. Power goes to the front wheels through a standard continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). With the base 2.0-liter, you’ll see fuel economy as high as 31 mpg city, 41 highway, and 35 combined.

For the efficiency-minded, the Eco trim gets a 1.4-liter turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine that makes 128 hp and 156 lb-ft of torque. It also comes with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (DCT). Fuel economy stands at 33, 41, and 36.

Finally, the Sport trim comes with a performance-tuned 1.6-liter inline 4-cylinder that makes 201 hp and 195 lb-ft. It comes with an independent rear suspension, larger front brake rotors, and other driving enhancements. The Sport returns fuel-economy ratings of 26, 36, and 29.

The base Elantra SE includes standard features like 15-inch alloy wheels, projector-beam headlights, 6-way manual front seats, keyless entry, Bluetooth connectivity, and a 5-inch infotainment system. Available upgrades across other trims include a 7- or 8-inch infotainment screen, navigation, alloy pedals, leather upholstery, a sunroof, automatic headlights, and heated front seats.

This year brings new standard safety equipment to all Elantra trims. You now get a reversing camera, forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and driver-attention warning. You can tack on adaptive cruise control, safe-exit assist, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane-change assist. While the 2020 Elantra hasn't been crash-tested, the 2019 model earned the highest possible scores from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

The 2020 Hyundai Elantra represents a smart value in the compact segment, especially with the fuel-economy improvements and added safety features.
