Stunning Design

Hyundai Elantra WinsYou may not know what Parametric Dynamics Design means, but you’ll be able to easily tell how the design of the Hyundai Elantra stands out from the rest the moment you see it. The jurors of the 2021 North American Car of the Year™ also noticed its sharp, geometric lines, which propelled this ride to blue-ribbon status.

Hyundai designers coined “Parametric Dynamics Design” to refer to the geometric designs and gem-inspired facets that appear throughout the exterior. The lines spike out crystal-like spears to give the feeling of moving swiftly through the thick air to speed off to the next destination. Designers broke the mold with this powerful, unusual design that reaped the benefits.

Neat and Convenient Technology

By “neat,” we mean that the technological innovations found in the Elantra eliminate clutter from your purse, pocket, and dashboard. You’ll have fewer items to lose and more connectivity and convenience to gain. In a car-segment first, the Elantra offers wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. That means no tangled cords to remember, use, or lose anymore! Your smartphone now connects to your car, even when it’s in your pocket.

Next, the Hyundai Elantra offers an available Hyundai Digital Key. This virtual tool enables you to lock, unlock, start, and drive your car without using a physical key. It uses an app that is compatible with Android smartphones, which you can share with others as long as they have access to the app.

Hybrid Fuel Efficiency

Hyundai Elantra WinsThis vehicle also deserved this award due to its incredible fuel efficiency in the 2021 Hyundai Elantra Hybrid. With the Elantra Blue Hybrid trim, you’ll achieve an EPA-estimated 53 city/56 highway MPG, while the Elantra Limited Hybrid trim achieves an EPA-estimated 49 city/52 highway MPG.1

Both values provide a seamless, non-stop trip to free you up for other pit stops you need to make. Mark this down as a great achievement when you find out that the 2021 Elantra Hybrid recently made its appearance on the scene.

It also offers leather-trimmed seats in the signature N Line style. You’ll want to take advantage of the 8-way power driver seats that contain heating elements, too. You’ll also get wireless device charging to keep your smartphone up to speed.
