What's New in the 2020 Hyundai Elantra?

Now that the iconic compact car's back for a new model year, it's time to check out what's changed under the hood and in-cabin. The experts here at Rowe Hyundai Auburn have noticed a few great improvements, and our customers already love them even more. Take a look!

For one, Hyundai went ahead and discontinued the old six-speed manual transmission in favor of an upgrade from six-speed auto to a Smartstream IVT. What that means is that Hyundai Elantra now gets even better fuel economy. Expect, according to the EPA, up to 31 mpg here on the streets of Auburn, 41 mpg on highways like US-202 and the Maine Turnpike, and 35 mpg combined between them.

Secondly, the popular Idle Stop & Go feature's now standard on Eco trims. It automatically turns off the engine when you stop and starts it again when it's time to go, reducing runtime and therefore both fuel use and emissions. That means even better fuel economy for the trim, too -- with a DCT, it can get as many as 33 mpg, 41 mpg, and 36 mpg respectively.

Third, the SE trim's standards have shot for the moon. Everything from dual automatic temperature control and a 3.5-inch driver info cluster to driver attention warning, a forward collision-avoidance assist system, and lane-keeping assist have been added to the mix. Speaking of blends, you can find five new colors available, too: Shimmering Silver Pearl, Stellar Silver, Calypso Red, Fluid Metal, and Portofino Gray.

Of course, there's much more to look forward to. 2020 Hyundai Elantra has tons of other driver aids, like smart cruise control, warning systems for blind spots and rear cross-traffic, and a pedestrian detector, among others. It's 95.8-cubic-foot cabin's got the comfort of available heated premium cloth or leather seating, the spacious trunk offers 14.4 cubic feet of cargo space, and there are tech options aplenty. We're talking 5-, 7-, and 8-inch infotainment system choices, navigation, wireless device charging, eight-speaker Infinity premium sound, and more.
