Last year the Hyundai Elantra was completely revamped as a mid-generation refresh, introducing a new look on the outside and several new features and design cues throughout the inside as well. Certainly, the 2020 Hyundai Elantra in Cocoa FL couldn’t improve upon the redesigned model even more, right? Well, wrong. 2020 sees even more enhancements and upgrades to our favorite compact sedan.
The Elantra was first introduced back in 1991, which means we’re almost at the vehicles thirty-year anniversary. We expect the 2021 model to be a total overhaul for the vehicle to enters its seventh generation in celebration of the anniversary, thought at this point that’s just conjecture. If it does happen, though, that would be the third year in a row that the Elantra received some major improvements.
With the 2020 model year upon us, the new Elantra represents one of the first models from the collection available here at Cocoa Hyundai. The biggest enhancement for the Elantra is the introduction of a new Intelligent Variable Transmission system that comes standard on the SE, SEL, Value and Limited trim levels. While the transmission itself is great, the big enhancements comes in the form of its impact on efficiency, improving the Elantra’s fuel economy rating by 2 miles per gallon combined!
The Elantra also received a host of newly standard features, including three Hyundai SmartSense features. The new standard features, aside from the IVT, include Dual Automatic Temperature Control, a 3.5” display in the instrument cluster, an Efficient Positive Temperature Coefficient Electric Heater on models with the 2.0L engine, Engine Idle Stop & Go on the Eco trim level and a dual shell horn. The new SmartSense features now standard in the Elantra are Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Keeping Assist and Driver Attention Warning.
This is, of course, only what’s new in the 2020 Hyundai Elantra. There is plenty else to get excited about, so if you’re interested in hearing more be sure to give us a call or browse through our blog. We look forward to helping you get behind the wheel of your own Hyundai sedan!
