In addition to its astoundingly efficient performance, the all-new 2021 Hyundai Elantra Hybrid will spark your interest with its roomy cabin and generous list of modern features.
The 2021 Elantra Hybrid is an all-new model, introducing a hybrid powertrain that earns up to 56 mpg on the highway. All Elantra models have been redesigned for the 2021 model year, and the new Elantra Hybrid features their same bold new styling and best-in-class passenger space.
Compared to previous Elantra models, the Elantra Hybrid features:
Both Elantra Hybrid trim models feature the same hybrid powertrain, a 1.6-liter inline four-cylinder engine paired with a battery-powered motor. Together, engine and motor create a total output of 139 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque.
When you put the six-speed EcoShift dual-clutch automatic transmission to work, you’ll appreciate its responsive performance and how it feels smooth over bumps and secure around corners.
This 2021 Elantra Hybrid also has a few efficiency-boosting tricks up its sleeve. The regenerative braking system recycles excess braking energy, recharging the battery as you drive and when you’re cruising at lower speeds, the Elantra Hybrid utilizes more electric power to help you conserve gasoline.
Each Hyundai Elantra trim model offers its own EPA ratings. The base Blue model is the most efficient option, earning 54 mpg combined (53 city/56 highway mpg). The upscale Limited model follows close behind, with 50 mpg combined (49/52 mpg).
With 99.4 cubic feet of passenger space, there isn’t a roomier sedan in the segment but the Elantra Hybrid also puts a luxurious spin on your daily drive. The entry-level Blue model’s standard lineup includes heated front seats and dual-zone automatic climate control. Upgrade to the Limited for extras like leather seating and driver-seat memory settings.
The Elantra Hybrid is loaded with all-new tech goodies from Hyundai. The top-trim Limited model comes with a huge, 10.25-inch touch-screen infotainment interface and the base Blue gives you wireless connectivity for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration features.
Your Elantra Hybrid also comes with a three-year subscription to the Bluelink Connected Care system. The Connective Care features offer diagnostic alerts and remind you to schedule necessary maintenance services. And the subscription also includes Enhanced Roadside Assistance features, helping you out of a jam after the unexpected happens.
Both Elantra Hybrid trim models actively make you safer. Standard features include Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist and Lane Keeping Assist — technology that’s designed to help prevent accidental damages.
Optional upgrades go even further to deliver a modern performance. For example, the Smart Cruise Control system with Stop & Go technology maintains a safe distance from the vehicle ahead of you. However, it can also bring the Elantra Hybrid to a full stop and when traffic resumes, the Smart Cruise Control system kicks your ride back into gear.
Compared to Elantras of old, the Elantra Hybrid features a dynamic new exterior design. It shares its new good looks with the redesigned 2021 Hybrid, including standard LED daytime running lights and solar glass. Exterior upgrades, like optional dark chrome trim and full LED head and taillights, make this hybrid sedan look even fresher and more modern.
The Elantra Hybrid keeps things simple, offering only two trim models. Both provide impressive passenger space, luxury, and tech features. However, the Limited adds to the Blue’s lineup with bigger tech interfaces and extra creature comforts.
This Elantra Hybrid supplies the model’s most efficient performance, which is 54 mpg combined. It also delivers impressive modern comfort, with soft cloth upholstery, heated seats, and dual-zone automatic climate control. The Blue is the only Elantra Hybrid to feature wireless connectivity for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto features. This smartphone integration technology puts your maps, music, and more apps on the central touch screen where you can use them with minimal distraction.
If you’re shopping for a little extra luxury, the Limited won’t disappoint. This hybrid upgrades your everyday drive with supple leather upholstery, front-seat ventilation, and a power driver seat. In addition to extra comforts, the Limited improves your tech experience with its bigger, 10.25-inch touch-screen infotainment interface and wireless smartphone charging pad.
Hyundai is known for its long-lasting warranty coverage. Your dealership will help take care of your hybrid powertrain for 10 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. Its new vehicle coverage also beats the competition: most sedans provide 3 years/60,000 miles of new vehicle coverage, but the Hyundai Elantra Hybrid treats you to 5 years/60,000 miles at no extra cost.
