Used Hyundai Elantra Overview

The Hyundai Elantra is a popular option among drivers who prefer small sedans because it is economical but also delivers one of the best value propositions in the segment, and that proposition only gets better when you purchase a used Hyundai Elantra. Keffer Hyundai is a premier Hyundai dealer serving Matthews Charlotte Monroe Concord and the neighboring communities, and we have an excellent selection of pre-owned and certified pre-owned Elantra models. The seventh and latest Elantra generation was introduced for the 2021 model year. For the purposes of this discussion, we’ll focus on the sixth generation, which launched with the 2017 model and concluded with the 2020 model.

Matthews NC - 2021 Hyundai Elantra's Overview

Exterior - Hyundai Dealer serving Matthews NC

Every used Hyundai Elantra in Matthews is a compact four-door sedan. This sixth-generation measures 179.9 inches in length—almost 15 feet—and has a 5.3-inch ground clearance. Fifteen-inch steel wheels with wheel covers are standard with the base model, but most of the vehicles available will have either 16-, 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels. There were not many visual changes over the course of this generation. Most of the trim levels look the same. You will notice more chrome with the upper trims and some color options that were otherwise not available, and the Sport is the most eye-catching of the options.

When this Elantra was introduced, the base model had a six-speed manual transmission paired with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine: 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission was offered as an option and standard beyond the base model. The Eco featured a dual-clutch seven-speed automatic mated to a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder: 128 hp and 156 lb.-ft. The Sport featured a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder—201 hp and 195 lb.-ft.—with your choice of either the manual transmission or the seven-speed automatic. These options remained the same across the generation with the exception of the manual transmission, which was dropped for the 2020 model year.

If a modern infotainment interface and driver-assistance technologies are important to you, then you should target the SEL trim level and up when shopping for your used Hyundai Elantra in Matthews. Depending on the year, the base model either did not have those features or had them available as an option. It is worth noting that this does change with the 2020 model. If that model year is an option for you, then you get a rather modern equipment package regardless of which trim level you choose.

Trim Levels - Used Hyundai Elantra dealer

The sixth-generation Elantra launched for the 2017 model year with four core trim levels: SE, Eco, Limited and Sport. The SE is a well-equipped base model. The Eco is similar but with a fuel-economical powertrain. The Limited is a luxury model, and the Sport is similar but with a performance-oriented powertrain. Hyundai changes the trim levels up for the next model year. The SE remained the base model. The SEL and Value Edition were introduced as options between the SE and Limited, which also remained the same. The Eco became a fuel-economical version of the Value Edition, and the Sport remained a performance-oriented version of the Limited.

Certified Pre-Owned

CPO is a program in which Hyundai certifies used Hyundai Elantra and other models and sells them with a robust powertrain warranty. To be candidates, models have to be newer than six model years, so that covers the entire sixth generation mentioned here as of this writing. CPO models also have less than 80,000 miles and have undergone an extensive inspection and reconditioning.
