New 2021 Hyundai Elantra

Discover The Style And Fun Of The 2021 Hyundai Elantra | For Sale Near Fort Mill, SC


The 2021 Hyundai Elantra is a fully redesigned compact car that stands out as one of the best in its class. It has a great feature set and a lot of strong fundamentals, like performance and a long warranty, and the new design has a bevy of fun touches. The 2021 Elantra also has a new performance oriented top trim, the N, which occupies a similar niche to the Civic Type R, as a maxed-out and souped-up version of a mass market car.


The Hyundai Elantra has a graceful and comfortable interior. It has plenty of room, and that shows up in the spacious rear row, which has better legroom than any other compact car available in the Charlotte area. Tall passengers will have no trouble feeling comfortable. The design is smart and uses space intelligently, so that sight lines stay clean and clear and the interior feels open. All of the features are laid out well, so they are accessible and easy to use. The tech and comfort features work well together regardless of what trim level you choose, and there is a unity to the design that gives the Elantra its own identity.


The 2021 Elantra has the crisp, clean lines and sporty look that is increasingly common in modern car design. The windows and front section are all canted forwards and down to give a feeling of motion, and while it is smooth and low, the profile is not so aerodynamic that it looks small. The way that the grille fades into the headlights to almost form a face is a nice touch. All of the colors look good and work well with the body shape and style, so Shelby, NC shoppers will not go wrong with any of the choices. 


The Elantra scores well on safety tests. It also has a pleasing array of automated safety technology. While the specific features will depend on which trim level you pick, they are as advanced as on any car and include:

  • Blind spot monitoring  
  • Blind spot collision assist  
  • Lane keep assist  
  • Adaptive cruise control  
  • And plenty more!

These automated safety features are an increasingly important part of the value proposition for cars. They make a big difference for how suitable the cars are for families, and the Elantra stacks up well to the competition in that respect. 


The tech in the Elantra is excellent. The eight-inch touchscreen and smartphone connectivity are standard, and you can upgrade to a touchscreen over 10 inches across, add on voice controls, and so on. The tech includes the infotainment and also the sound system and other elements, which can all be upgraded either through the trims or through packages and options.


The Elantra is available with two different engines. The base engine is a 147-horsepower naturally aspirated model with a continuously variable transmission. It gets good power and acceleration for most trims. If you upgrade to the performance N trim, then it comes with an upgraded engine that has 201 horsepower and a manual transmission.

Available Trim Levels

SE: This is the base trim. It has the standard set of features like LED daytime running lights, wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, and 15-inch alloy wheels.

SEL: The SEL adds on some nice features like keyless entry, but it also expands the list of possible options and packages, so if you move up to the SEL you can customize it more than the SE.

Limited: The Limited is the most luxurious trim of the Elantra, with comfort upgrades to the seating as well as to the tech.

N: The N is the special performance trim with a unique engine and other performance enhancements to make it perform as well as possible.
