2021 Hyundai Elantra Price List Shows Sharp Attention to Value

Christian Wardlaw | Oct 22, 2020

Once the redesigned 2021 Hyundai Elantra hits American highways, you won’t mistake it for anything but what it is. The car’s amalgamation of angular design cues will see to that. And given the amount of value Hyundai is baking into its all-new compact car, chances are it will be popular.

Prices for the 2021 Hyundai Elantra lineup kick off at $20,645. That’s for the base Elantra SE trim, which includes an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with new wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. SmartSense is also standard, a collection of advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS) that expands to add more features to the new Elantra.

The Elantra SEL offers the most flexibility concerning price and content. It costs $21,895, including the destination charge, and it offers both Convenience ($950) and Premium ($3,050) option packages. You can also get the Elantra SEL Hybrid for $24,495.

Driving enthusiasts will want to consider the turbocharged Elantra N Line, which comes with a standard manual gearbox and has a price of $25,095. If you can’t operate a clutch pedal, a dual-clutch transmission is optional for $1,100.

At the top of the Elantra lineup, the Limited runs $26,445 while the Elantra Limited Hybrid window stickers for $29,095. All vehicle prices include the $995 destination charge.

SmartSense equips every 2021 Elantra with forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic warning, lane-departure warning, and lane-keeping and lane-centering assistance. Automatic high-beam headlights are also standard, along with a Safe Exit Warning system that alerts occupants to vehicles approaching the Elantra from the rear.

Depending on the trim level, safety-related upgrades include cyclist detection, a junction-turning assistance system, and Highway Drive Assist. The latter adds adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability and then combines it with lane-centering assistance to create a Level 2 ADAS driving aid.

Additional available features include ventilated front seats, a hands-free Smart Trunk opener, and a widescreen 10.25-inch infotainment system with navigation, Blue Link connected services, and natural voice recognition. A Digital Key feature is also available, transforming an Android-based smartphone into a key that unlocks the doors and starts the engine.

As it did for the 2020 model year, Hyundai continues to offer an industry-leading bumper-to-bumper and powertrain warranty on the new Elantra, along with five free years of roadside assistance. All new Elantras come with free scheduled maintenance for the first three years of ownership, and versions equipped with Blue Link connected services supply a free three-year trial period before requiring a paid subscription. Plus, Hyundai offers a 3-day exchange program. If you don’t like the Elantra, bring it back and apply what you paid to a different Hyundai model.

The new 2021 Elantra goes on sale by the end of 2020.
