2019 Hyundai Elantra Gets a New Face, More Safety Features


The 2019 Hyundai Elantra has been updated with restyled front and rear ends and new available safety features.  The 2019 Elantra’s new look consists of a redesigned grille, new LED headlights, a new hood and a redesigned rear end with different taillights. To our eye, the sedan’s updated appearance is similar to the 2019 Sonata’s and vaguely reminiscent of the Hyundai Le Fil Rouge concept.

The 2019 Elantra has also received new optional extras in the way of larger 18-inch alloy wheels and a new 8.0-inch infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The 7.0-inch infotainment system from the outgoing 2018 model year Elantra will serve in lesser trim levels.

New active safety features on the 2019 Elantra include a blind spot monitoring system, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning with active lane control and a rearview camera with cross-traffic alert.

As for the powertrain options, they remain the same, consisting of a 149 hp naturally aspirated 2.0-liter, a 130 hp turbocharged 1.4-liter and a 204 hp turbo 1.6-liter.

Pricing for the 2019 Hyundai Elantra has yet to be announced, but it should be close to the $16,950 base price of the 2018 Elantra.
