2019 Elantra: Exterior Features

The 2019 Elantra has a lot going for it, including its snazzy looks. It's undergone a midcycle refresh for the current model year, with a wider grille and a front fascia that looks reminiscent of the Hyundai Le Fil Rouge concept car unveiled last March.

Those sharp, triangular headlamps sport optional LED lighting, shining farther, more accurately, and with greater efficiency. These LED lights have been engineered to produce a tone closer to that of natural light, so your nighttime drives are more convenient.

What's more, the Elantra exterior is practical, too. The available hands-free smart trunk opens by itself if it senses your key fob nearby for more than three seconds. Just stand behind the car, and the trunk will open to reveal a roomy 14.4 cubic feet of cargo space!

All-Star Performance Specs

Peek under the hood of the Hyundai Elantra, and you'll find one of two possible engines. The base engine, a 2.0L 4-cylinder, puts out 147 horsepower for some potent daily driving.

For the best fuel economy, you'll want the turbocharged 1.4L 4-cylinder in the Elantra Eco. It achieves an EPA-estimated 32 city and 40 highway MPG, helping you cut down on your stops at the gas station.

A 6-speed manual transmission comes standard if you want more control over your ride. If you want the convenience of the smoothest possible transitions, a 6-speed automatic transmission is available. 

Advanced Safety Features

In the 2019 Elantra, you'll find Hyundai SmartSense, a suite of driver-assist technology designed to make your daily drive safer and more secure. It includes features like:

  • Smart Cruise Control, to keep you at a preset distance from the car ahead of you.
  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, to warn you and help apply brakes if a frontal collision is imminent.
  • Lane Keeping Assist, to help you avoid drifting.

There are some other great features you won't find on every small car: Driver Attention Warning can help detect drowsy or inattentive driving, alerting you while continuously monitoring driving patterns.

At the same time, Safe Exit Assist can detect when a vehicle is approaching from behind. If you're parked along the side of the road, this makes exiting the car safer than ever before.
