Long Island NY - 2021 Hyundai Elantra's Overview

Exterior – 2021 Hyundai Elantra

The exterior of the Elantra has long captured the imaginations of people who prefer to shop practically but still want a little spice in life. With a shorter rear trunk area and a wider build, the Elantra is looking more athletic than in previous years. And with a longer wheelbase this year, you’re going to net some greater driving perks as well. While new colors on the exterior haven’t been released yet, we know that Hyundai usually goes with a more sophisticated color menu, so you can expect some real creative touches here.

Interior – 2021 Hyundai Elantra near Long Island NY

Hyundai’s focus on interior space and creature comforts like technology are abundantly clear from the moment you step into the new Elantra. Its Dynamic Voice Recognition is a new feature on this year’s Elantra. It basically allows you to boss your Elantra around, telling it to do things like open your trunk or heat your seats up. Forget pressing buttons for your most important features this year. All you have to do is ask the Elantra to do something, and it will oblige. Other standout tech features include a rich Bose Premium audio system that gives you a soundtrack for life each day and wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for folks who really love their tech. Despite the focus on technology here, Hyundai didn’t leave out any of the other perks either, such as leather seating options. Centereach Hyundai gives the new Elantra interior an A+ on every count here in our Long Island review.

Mechanical – Elantra specs near Long Island

Hyundai didn’t want to trust a third party with their transmission on the new Elantra, so they built their own CVT transmission from scratch this year. It’s Hyundai imagined and produced, so it fits in perfectly with the powertrain and performance of the new Elantra. No one buys a practical sedan like the Elantra with a race in mind, but we’d like to inform you that the energetic performance of the Elantra defies its 147 horsepower rating. With plenty of torque thrown in, you get power in every area it counts.

Powertrain – Hyundai Elantra specs near Long Island NY

The 147 horsepower 2.0L I4 engine is an impressive standard powertrain for a traditionally affordable sedan like the Elantra. With 132 lb-ft of torque, you’ll also get the kind of peppy performance you’ve come to expect of the Elantra. Hyundai created its own CVT automatic transmission to go for all powertrains. A second engine option has been announced as well, a 1.6L I4 hybrid that’s attached to an electric motor. With 139 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque, and paired with a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, the Elantra hybrid can really dash!

Safety – 2021 Hyundai Elantra dealer

Hyundai SmartSense is standard on the 2021 Elantra, something that we’re especially pleased to see. We’ve come to expect Hyundai to give you the standard features that come with SmartSense. With rear cross traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, and auto emergency braking, you get a vehicle that’s as smart as it is attractive. We’re also a big fan of highway driving assist, something that will definitely be a benefit to families out there who love long road trips in their sedan. When you really want to get out and drive and feel confident about it, the Elantra is the perfect car for you. You’ll never have to worry about your family’s safety when you’re at the helm of the Elantra. It’s practical, but in the safety department, it’s state of the art and only priced practical.
