What's New For The 2019 Hyundai Elantra?

A new generation Elantra is introduced for 2019. Shoppers familiar with the overall appearance of this model will immediately notice a few exterior refinements including a reshaped front end, a new fascia design, changes to the rear bumper, a different slope to the hood, and a new look to the wheels. Inside, the center console has been reshaped, there are changes to the size and location of the vents, and the gauge cluster also has a new look.

Hyundai has made these changes to keep pace with the quickly evolving compact sedan class, and the result is a refreshed look that isn't all that different from competitors from Honda and other foreign entrants. The safety features, detailed below, have also been upgraded, specifically, the inclusion of several drivers aids as standard and a newly designed rearview camera display.
