Hyundai Elantra SE

2021 Hyundai Elantra SE trim level

In exploring the 2021 Elantra, you will have four trim levels to choose from, starting with the base trim level: the SE.

As the base trim, the SE comes with an impressive number of features. One such feature is an 8-inch high-resolution touchscreen display, which you can wirelessly connect to your smartphone.

By connecting through wireless Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™, you will have access to your messages, various applications, and entire music library while driving. You'll also enjoy the HD Radio™, which arms you with an additional way to listen to music with true, crisp tone.

Other technology you'll get with the Elantra SE includes safety systems like:

  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection
  • Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Safe Exit Warning
  • High Beam Assist

The base trim also comes stocked with an additional driver-assistive feature coming in the form of a Driver Attention Warning. This system monitors your normal driving behavior and can detect if you start to stray from it-whether you become fatigued or distracted. It then warns you of this behavior and signals that it may be time to take a break.

These driver-assistive systems give you more confidence while driving, whether you are cruising along the highway, traveling at night, or just navigating the busy streets downtown. You will also be able to move your seat to the exact position you like, thanks to the 6-way adjustable driver seat. Your front passenger can also move their seat for more personal comfort with its 4-way adjustment.

The Elantra SE is powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that creates 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. Paired with it is a Smartstream® Intelligent Variable Transmission, which provides smooth and responsive acceleration. Together, this powertrain helps this car achieve an impressive EPA-estimated 33 city/43 highway MPG.*

Hyundai Elantra SEL

2021 Hyundai Elantra SEL trim level

As you jump up a trim level, you will get to enjoy even more tech in your 2021 Hyundai Elantra SEL. The SEL trim features the following technologies:

  • SiriusXM Satellite Radio
  • Blue Link® Connected Care
  • One-touch auto-up driver's window

You'll find an additional comfort feature within the cabin of the Elantra SEL under the category of climate control.

This sedan features a dual fully automatic temperature control system. This will not only provide you with the ability to customize your interior temperature, but it'll also allow your front passenger the same ability. If you're riding solo, take full control and reach your next destination in comfort and solitude.

Using the Blue Link® Connected Care & Remote Package, you will be able to conveniently unlock and lock your doors remotely-as well as start the engine-all from an app on your smartphone. The sound system can also be upgraded with the available 8-speaker Bose® premium audio system. Along with these tech features, you can opt for additional safety technologies in the SEL.

These include the available Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go as well as an upgrade to the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian, Cyclist, and Junction-Turning Detection. Using the Smart Cruise Control system, the 2021 Elantra SEL can maintain your desired speed as you drive along the highway, while also automatically applying the brakes when needed to keep a safe distance from the car in front of you.

Hyundai Elantra N Line 

2021 Hyundai Elantra N Line trim level

Up next is the 2021 Hyundai Elantra N Line, which adds some extra athleticism to this sedan.

Starting with its powertrain, the N Line trim level comes with a 1.6L turbo 4-cylinder engine. With this, the 2021 Elantra pushes out 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque for a sporty and agile performance.

This engine is also paired with a 6-speed manual transmission, which will provide a drive that gives you complete shifting control behind the wheel. If you prefer an automatic experience, you could opt for the available 7-speed dual-clutch transmission with SHIFTRONIC®.

Along with its turbocharged power, the N Line comes with a sporty design to match its performance, including such additions as:

  • N Line unique front grille
  • N Line unique front bumper
  • Chrome twin exhaust outlet
  • Gloss black window trim

The N Line also adds some exterior features that are not only stylish, but also functional. For example, the heated side mirrors prove handy on those cold winter mornings, allowing you to de-frost the mirrors just seconds before hitting the road for the morning commute.

There are more stylish features inside the Hyundai Elantra N Line. These include the N Line leather/cloth combination sport seats, alloy sport pedals, and unique leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.

The N Line trim level also features its own unique analog gauge cluster. With it, you can stay informed of how your car is performing at all times.

Hyundai Elantra Limited

2021 Hyundai Elantra Limited trim level

The last of the 2021 Hyundai Elantra trim levels is the Limited, and it comes with a premium cabin design.

With this trim level, you will have a luxurious ride, thanks to impressive standard features like:

  • Leather-trimmed seating surfaces
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob
  • Heated front seats
  • Power tilt-and-slide sunroof

This trim level also gets an upgraded infotainment system. There is a larger 10.25-inch touchscreen display in the Elantra Limited, which comes with a built-in navigation system. Another upgraded display screen in the Limited is the 10.25-inch digital gauge cluster, which will give you a great view of all the various driving data you want to stay aware of.

Another convenient tech feature that comes standard is Dynamic Voice Recognition. What can this system do? It would probably be quicker to list what it can't do, as it can answer and respond to a wide range of questions and commands! Use it to get the weather forecast, the score of the big game, or to find a nearby ice cream shop if you want to stop on the way home for some dessert.

The Limited also comes with LED lighting for both the headlights and taillights. Inside, there is added lighting found in this trim level. You'll have customizable color options, so you can choose the color you want to shine inside your Elantra, depending upon your mood.

You'll also find some additions within the safety category on the Limited trim. For example, this trim comes with a Parking Collision Avoidance Assist - Reverse feature. This system will work to monitor your rear surroundings, helping you avoid collisions while backing up-say, out of that downtown parking spot. Pair this with the Parking Distance Warning - Reverse feature also found in this trim, and you'll be ready maneuver in or out of just about any parking spot.

2021 Hyundai Elantra: What's the Same?

Now that you have learned more about what is different between all of these Hyundai Elantra trim levels, how about what is the same? One important area you'll find consistent across all four available trims is the space. The sedan comes ready to seat five with 99.4 cubic feet of passenger volume.

You'll also have adequate storage space in the rear of the Elantra. The remaining space out of the 113.6 cubic feet of total interior volume-14.2 cubic feet-is designated for storage space. So, you'll have plenty of space to pack your bags in for your weekend adventure or to take your shopping bags home from the trip to the mall.

However, you will have an option to create more cargo space in the N Line and Limited Elantra trims using the 60/40 split-folding rear seatback with armrest and cupholders. With this feature, you'll be able to fold down one, two, or even all three of the second-row seats to create more cargo volume. This feature will come in handy for larger items-like maybe that new piece of furniture you just picked up.

Another feature you will find consistently across the Elantra family is the bodycolor door handles. Whatever color you choose, your door handles will match, ensuring that no exterior style is compromised while still providing the functionality you need to access your sedan.
