2019 Hyundai Elantra Selling For $17,985

2019 hyundai elantra (1)

Korean automaker Hyundai just released its pricing for the 2019 Hyundai Elantra, which made its global debut in Utah last month. The new car’s base model, the SE trim, will have a starting price tag of $17,985, a mere $150 more than last year’s model.

The Elantra SEL trim, which sits above the base model, now includes a suite of SmartSense safety and convenience technologies. This will come standard from the SEL trim and up. The tech suite includes forward collision-avoidance assist, lane keep assist, and driver attention warning.

But that additional tech means a small surge on the prices, too, though still not much to get your eyes out of your socket. The 2019 SEL trim will start at $20,285, up $550 from last year. The livelier Sport model will set you back $23,285 for a six-speed manual version or $24,385 for one with the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.

The prices show an increase of around $600 across the range. The Value trim level returns again for the 2019 model year. This time, it will sell for $21,285 or $550 more than the current generation’s price. The Eco trim’s base price is now $21,835 and the top-of-the-line Limited gets a $23,485 price tag, up by $500 from last year.

The increase in prices is due to the fact that the 2019 Elantra compact sedan is getting some cool new features such as a new hood, front fenders, and a new set of headlights that emphasize a redesigned grille. At the back, there’s a new rear fascia and taillights that is angled towards the new trunk lid.

A refined exterior and interior space are the focus of the 2019 edition of the compact sedan. Hyundai particularly wants the Elantra to maintain its design character but have a set of new desirable features that come with an affordable price tag.

Since it was launched in 1991, Hyundai has sold more than three million Elantras. The sedan, now on its sixth generation, is available in six trim levels—SE, SEL, Value Edition, Limited, Eco, and Sport.

Depending on the trim level, there will be three engine options: a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 147 horsepower, a 1.4-liter turbo-four with 128 horsepower, and a 1.6-liter turbo with an estimated 201 horsepower.

All models below the Sport trim will get a six-speed automatic transmission, except for the Eco trim which will be paired with a seven-speed EcoShift dual-clutch. If you want the feel of a manual transmission, you can opt for the Sport model or the six-speed manual option available for the SE trim.

2019 Hyundai Elantra Gets New Angular Face

2019 hyundai elantra (1)

The 2019 Hyundai Elantra is getting a radical facelift that gives the compact sedan a more angular look than before. Gone is the rounded front fascia of the current model and in its place is a fascia with lots of sharp corners. Even the headlights and the fog lights change to triangle-shaped units and the grille is also sharper.

The headlights intersect with the grille so this makes for an interesting new design. The base of the headlights match up with the top-most slat in the grille and the lights intersect with some of the grille’s top corners. The two new creases on the hood are also leveled up with the vertical slats in the grille.

The car’s rear is also updated. The taillights, like the headlights, have sharpened corners. The housing of the license plate is moved to the bumper from the trunk lid. The large Elantra lettering stretches across the lid of the bumper. This design is similar to the Sonata midsize sedan.

The changes are attractive but the angular lines don’t specifically fit the sides. Meanwhile, the overall silhouette of the car retains the soft and organic lines of the current model.

The safety features of the car are improved. The 2019 Hyundai Elantra gets a camera-based forward collision prevention, lane-keeping assist, and driver attention alert as standard equipment on the second-lowest SEL trim and above.

On the other hand, all trim levels come with a five-inch touchscreen as standard along with a rear-view camera and dynamic guidelines on the screen.

The base SE model is paired with a manual transmission but equipped with Bluetooth and steering wheel controls. The Limited trim, the top end of the model, has an additional eight-speaker sound system with subwoofer, Qi wireless phone charging, and Safe Exit Assist, which warns drivers of approaching cars when the door is open.

Under the hood, we find the same naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces 147 horsepower. There’s also the 1.4-liter engine that makes 128 horsepower. The Elantra Sport churns out 201 horsepower, but Hyundai said they will have a restyled version later this year.

The 2017 Civic Si sedan and coupe has a starting price of $24,775, which is $640 more than the Elantra GT Sport with the same specifications.

The manual gearbox on the first engine is only available on the base model LX. That has a fuel economy of 35/41/35 miles per gallon city/highway/combined.
