With three trim options, there's a lot to get excited about! Read on for more details about this year's sleek and exciting options for this classic sedan.

Universal Specs

This year's Elantra is lighter than past year models. That means it has more get-up-and-go than before. It's also got the look to go along with its speed, thanks to what Hyundai is calling "Parametric Dynamics. "The body shape incorporates 3-dimensional polyhedrons along the length of the body. Three lines meet to create a bold, arrowlike shape in the doors. The result is a bold and classy finish that is somewhat akin to a classic 4-door coupe.

Trim Options

With three current trim levels to choose from, and more on the way later in the year, there's a 2021 Elantra out there to fit your style, needs, and budget.


The SE trim level is the most affordable of the current Elantra options. Interestingly, it has the best mileage city/highway/combined mileage estimates at 33/43/37 MPG. This trim of the 2021 Hyundai Elantra comes with 15-inch alloy wheels and 16/65 R15 tires, projector headlights, a chrome front grille, and cloth seats. The 8-inch display audio system has a high-res touchscreen, and wireless Apple CarPlay comes standard along with wireless Android Auto. Keep your gadgets charged with dual USB ports. A low-tech, manual air conditioning controls help keep you cool. The 4.2-inch color gauge cluster is a digital-free way to read your speed and other gauges from behind the wheel.

The Elantra has the technology to keep you and other drivers safer. The SE and all other trims have Driver Attention Warning and Safe Exit Warning systems equipped. Other smart safety features included with each trim are: Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Following Assist, and High Beam Assist. Interior features included are adjustable front-seat shoulder belt anchors, front seatbelt pretensioners, LATCH lower & upper tether anchors. Brake assist will help keep you safe. In case of an accident, count on advanced dual front airbags with an occupant classification system as well as driver and front passenger side-impact airbags, side-curtain airbags, and a driver's knee airbag

Other features included with the SE trim as well as all other levels are a power window lock-out button, rear child safety locks, a tire pressure monitoring system, and anti-lock brakes. The computer system also controls Vehicle Stability Management, Electronic Stability Control with Traction Control System, and Hillstart Assist Control features. 


The next step up in comfort and convenience in the 2021 Hyundai Elantra is the SEL. It's the same engine under the hood with a slightly lower MPG of 31/41/35 city/highway/combined. The SEL has all the safety and interior features of the SE and more that come standard, as well as options for a convenience or premium add-on package. It comes with slightly larger wheels than the SE, at 16-inches, with an option to upgrade to 17-inches. It has the same amount of head/leg/shoulder room, but also comes with a sunroof.

Projector headlights come standard with the SEL trim, along with the chrome-front grille, and cloth seats. It has the same standard gauge cluster as the SE, with an option to upgrade to a larger, digital cluster. The same 8-inch high-resolution display comes standard for the audio system, along with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. SiriusXM Satellite Radio is an added feature to the SEL trim. Blue Link Connected Care & Remote Package is featured with the SEL trim, and enrollment is required. Temperature control is fully-automatic with dual settings. Proximity key entry with a push-button start is standard with the SEL trim.

With a Convenience Package added on, you get some sweet extra features. On the safety side is Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection along with Smart cruise control. Drivers are sure to enjoy a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, along with a wireless device charging pad. Other features included in this investment are, a 10.25-inch digital gauge cluster, an electronic parking brake, heated seats, and a heated outside mirror.

A Premium Package adds chrome accents on the interior and exterior as well as a Hyundai Digital Key. This upgrade gets you a Bose premium audio system with 8 speakers, a power driver seat, and sunroof to help you ride in style and comfort. Passengers will ride in comfort with a 60/40 split-folding rear seatback with armrest and cupholders as well as a passenger seatback pocket. More features of the Premium Package are 17-inch alloy wheels, LED & bulb taillights, as well as side mirror turn-signal indicators. These features and more all come standard with the Limited trim level!


The Limited trim option for the 2021 Hyundai Elantra brings it all to the table. Every luxury feature of the optional Convenience and Premium package available for the SEL comes standard with the Limited edition. 17-inch alloy wheels come standard, but can be replaced with the slightly-smaller 16-inch option. At either size, LED headlights and taillights up your visibility. Three incredible safety features come standard with the Limited that aren't available for the SE or SEL trim options: Parking Distance Warning - Reverse, Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist - Reverse, and Highway Driving Assist.

This trim level is also the only one to come with the 10.25-inch high-resolution touchscreen navigation option as well as dynamic voice recognition software. The standard power tilt-and-slide sunroof and leather-trimmed seats really ramp up the feeling of luxury as you cruise around. With the limited, you can also customize the ambient interior lighting. Feel at ease with 3 years of a Blue Link Guidance Package on top of the Connected Care & Remote Package. Enrollment is required, and you'll be thankful for it! These incredible, luxury features come only available with the Limited trim package.

N Line

Hyundai brings the 2021 Elantra to the next level with the N Line. This trim is for the gearheads and racing-types who want a little extra engine power and a lot of flair. This is the only trim with a manual transmission. It comes with a standard 6-speed manual transmission or an option for an automatic 7-speed Dual Clutch transmission with SHIFTRONIC, giving you the option for a manual-like mode using paddle shifters on the steering wheel.  The N line is also unique between these trims, as the only one that comes standard with multi-link rear suspension, 12-inch front brake rotors, and 18-inch alloy wheels. 

It comes with some of the safety features as the other trims: Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, and Lane Keeping/Following Assist. Also included for safety are Driver Attention Warning, High-Beam Assist, and Safe Exit Warning. It has all the same seatbelt and airbag safety features included standard with the Limited trim edition.

Projector headlights and full LED taillights are unique to the N Line, as well. Hyundai curated a unique look with the N Line, including a special front grille, front bumper, rear fascia with diffuser, a twin exhaust outlet, and gloss black window trim. Inside, the N line is the only trim with a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel, knob shift, and leather/cloth combination sport seats. It also has black headliner and alloy sport pedals.
