Vehicle Overview

The 2020 Hyundai Elantra is all about intelligence. It's a smarter look, a smarter feel, and a smarter lineup of safety features.

Matthews NC - 2020 Hyundai Elantra's Overview

Exterior - 2020 Hyundai Elantra

Keffer Hyundai admits that the 2019 Elantra has many of the same exterior features as the 2020 version, but what you'll find is that many of the optional features of the 2019 model year will be standard in 2020. You'll also find more advanced, modern features on even lower trims in 2020. Clean bodylines are a hallmark of both models, and you'll also find a host of things returning for the 2020 year: LED headlights, hands-free smart trunk release, and a sleek Power tilt-and-slide sunroof (ask us about more options at Keffer Hyundai). Get ready for big time upgrades, though, in the form of a driver's blind spot mirror that's as functional as it is expertly designed. 17-inch alloy wheel.

Interior - 2020 Hyundai Elantra in Matthews NC

The 2020 Elantra automatically gets an upgraded interior thanks to touches like the dual-zone automatic climate control that comes standard. It was missing on the 2019 Hyundai Elantra, as was the brand new 2020 3.5 inch screen within the instrument cluster. The result is a more refined interior that offers more comfort than its previous model year. You'll be able to control your temperature from the two primary zones in the vehicle, and that's a blessing for family members whose comfort depends heavily on the temperature in the vehicle.

Mechanical - Hyundai Elantra specs in Matthews

Hyundai did away with the manual transmission of the 2019 season in favor of an "intelligent" transmission that promises to make for a more agile and smooth driving experience. All models equipped with the 2.0-liter Atkinson Cycle engine gets a CVT transmission that "intelligently" shifts in unison with the rest of the mechanical system, making for a truly exhilarating driving experience. Hyundai simply followed suit with many other automakers that realize a lot of people these days aren't interested in a manual transmission. They've responded to customer wishes by creating a more intelligent way for the Elantra to handle its transitions.

Safety - 2020 Hyundai Elantra dealer

In our 2020 Hyundai Elantra vs 2019 Hyundai Elantra comparison, no category stands out quite so much as the category of safety. SmartSense is now standard across the lineup of Hyundai's Elantra trims, giving drivers the assurance of features like forward collision warning and lane keep assist. The Limited has still further safety features available with the "Ultimate" package, giving you forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, an infinitely valuable driver-assist feature that is extra helpful if you live in an area heavily populated by walkers or joggers. On the whole, the 2020 Elantra is simply better equipped on safety features than its 2019 counterpart, and that's saying a lot considering the 2019 Elantra was easily a Top Safety Pick+. You can expect the 2020 Elantra to join its older sibling in this honor here very soon, as people begin taking this one home and discovering all of its many safety features.

The 2020 Elantra is better equipped, with more safety and interior features than its 2019 sibling, and it's simply a beautiful choice in 2020. Hyundai spared no expense in redesigning the few things that needed some extra pizazz in 2020, and they've definitely made more safety features available to drivers than they ever have before. To say the 2020 Elantra is the best Elantra yet isn't hyperbole. It's the honest truth.
