  • What is MSRP?

    MSRP stands for Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price, sometimes also known as the sticker price. Because this price is only a suggestion, a dealer can choose to sell a vehicle above—or, more often, below—MSRP.

  • What is Market Average?

    Based on actual recent transactions other buyers have made, the Market Average shows you the average price others paid for vehicles similar to the one you want, while taking into account that most of these vehicles have different option combinations from the ones you specified.

  • Statewide, Regional, and National Data

    If there are insufficient transactions in your area, we calculate your Market Average by gathering statewide, regional, or national data. Because this data can come from a large geographical area it may not be as representative of your local market.

2021 Hyundai Elantra Model Description

What's New Redesigned Elantra has sleeker exterior styling; Longer, lower, and wider than outgoing model; Standard wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto; New Elantra Hybrid may get over 50 mpg combined

The Hyundai Elantra is an excellent choice for compact sedan shoppers. It has available hybrid technology and a length warranty that may help save money down the road, plenty of cutting-edge standard and available technology to make commutes more pleasant, and sleek coupe-like styling that differentiates it from more cookie-cutter alternatives. The Elantra has excellent interior space and plenty of features, though some rivals are sportier to drive, offer all-wheel-drive, and are generally more versatile. Overall, the Hyundai Elantra is one of the most modern and value-packed small sedans available, making it a great fit for families and people who spend a lot of time in the car.

The Elantra comes in four main trims, two of which are also available as hybrids. For around $20,000, the SE trim includes forward collision alert, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keep assist, lane centering, automatic high beams, and a driver attention alert that monitors driver movements to help detect signs of fatigue. Other features include power side mirrors, cloth upholstery, a one-piece folding rear seat, remote keyless entry, air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth, and an eight-inch touchscreen. The SEL retails for around $21,000. It adds key features such as an upgraded audio system, Blue Link connected car services, satellite radio, illuminated sun visors, dual-zone climate control, a one-touch automatic driver window, and proximity keyless entry. The SEL Hybrid gets a more fuel-efficient powertrain, LED taillights, heated side mirrors, heated front seats, and more for around $24,000. The N-Line, which begins at about $24,500, is the sportiest Elantra. It has unique details like a turbocharged engine, rear lip spoiler and diffuser, 18-inch alloy wheels, and summer tires (included with manual transmission). For around $25,500, the Limited provides luxurious features including full LED exterior lighting, a power sunroof, leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, a 60/40 split-folding rear seat with center armrest, a power driver's seat, a Boss premium audio system, a 10.25-inch infotainment screen, navigation, and wireless phone charging. It also gets more advanced driver safety features like cyclist detection, junction-turning detection, adaptive cruise control with Stop & Go technology, rear parking sensors, and a Highway Drive Assist that helps keep the Elantra centered in its lane and a proper distance from cars in front of it. The Limited Hybrid costs about $28,500. It adds things like heated/ventilated front seats and driver's seat memory.

The Elantra gets its power from a 147-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a continuously variable transmission and front-wheel-drive. The EPA estimates fuel economy of 35 mpg combined. The N-Line gets a unique turbocharged 1.6-liter engine and a manual transmission, though an automatic is also available. It produces 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque, which makes the Elantra more fun to drive. The hybrid trims feature a 1.6-liter four-cylinder and a permanent-magnet electric motor powered by a lithium-ion battery pack located under the rear seats. The powertrain makes a combined 139 horsepower. It uses a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, which is quick-shifting and sportier than comparable hybrid gearboxes. The EPA has not rated this engine yet, but Hyundai estimates fuel economy of more than 50 mpg.

The Elantra's interior looks like a more affordable version of large Hyundai vehicles like the Sonata and Palisade. Its multi-spoke steering wheel, cascading center stack, and integrated infotainment system give the Elantra a refined and modern look that is also practical for everyday use. There are two cupholders mounted within the center console between the front seats. The Limited trim's rear-seat armrest features two more cupholders. Cloth upholstery comes standard on the Elantra, with the Limited getting a leather interior. The N-Line has bolstered sport seats trimmed in a combination of leather and cloth. Upper trims offer heated and ventilated front seats, a power sunroof, and a driver fatigue monitor. The Elantra's interior space is excellent, with headroom that's nearly best-in-class. Cargo capacity is 14.2 cubic feet, which is average. The Elantra comes with a one-piece folding rear bench seat, but the Limited has a 60/40 split-folding seat that allows for more seating and cargo configurations and less demanding access from the cabin to the trunk. An eight-inch touchscreen comes standard on the SE and SEL, including wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, HD Radio, and satellite radio. The SE has four audio speakers, the SEL six. The Limited trim gets a 10.25-inch high-resolution touchscreen with navigation, as well as a three-month trial of SiriusXM Data Service apps like NavTraffic and NavWeather. The Limited also has a Boss premium audio system with eight speakers, including a center channel and subwoofer. Wireless smartphone charging is standard on the Limited. There are two USB ports.

People who viewed the 2021 Hyundai Elantra also considered

The Starting Market Average is a proprietary mathematical calculation based on actual recent transactions. It provides a statistically accurate understanding of what other buyers are paying for the least expensive configuration of this vehicle. Adjustments to the calculation beyond make, model, and trim are normalized based on detailed, anonymized transaction information. This accounts for the fact that most or all recently-sold vehicles included different option combinations. The data underlying the Starting Market Average calculation are filtered for extreme outliers and subjected to a weighted averaging process that considers factors such as the recency of transactions and the timing of data lags. In certain instances, the calculated result is adjusted to take account of abrupt changes in the market that may not yet be fully reflected by recent transaction prices. In all cases where the Starting Market Average is shown there is sufficient sample size and transaction detail to be statistically reliable.
