2021 All-New Hyundai Elantra From $17,899 in Canada

All-new car, not so new pricetag

  • Just $750 more than outgoing model

  • Offers class exclusives like ventilated seats, wireless phone connectivity


Hyundai‘s Elantra is all-new for 2021, getting sharper, fresher styling, wireless phone connectivity, more active driver aids, a hybrid, and a new N Line model. What is familiar is the price, as the all-new car will start from $750 more than the outgoing model.

On top of the new 4.7 L/100 km Hyundai Elantra Hybrid model that’s expected to go on sale early next year, the Elantra gains an N Line which uses a 1.6L turbo-four making 201 hp and adding a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, upgraded suspension with multi-link rear, stiffer springs, body kit, and bigger brakes that will hit the market at the same time.

Other new features include forward collision avoidance with pedestrian, cyclist, and junction turning detection, ambient lighting inside, available wireless phone charging, and available ventilated seats, which looks to be class-exclusive at the moment.

A standard 8.0-inch display audio infotainment system offers Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, both wirelessly (another class first), but if you get the larger 10.25-inch screen with navigation, you lose the wireless function (we’ve reached out to clarify this odd bit of info with Hyundai Canada and will update when we hear back). Highway Driving Assist with Auto Curve Slowdown is a semi-autonomous driver aid Hyundai says will keep the car centred in-lane and maintain distance with the car in front but will also automatically slow before you reach a sharp corner. The Elantra will also offer rear occupant alert and a driver warning to alert if a rear door is about to be opened into traffic.

The Elantra starts as the Essential MT with a six-speed manual for $17,899, and the surprisingly slight price hike continues across the line. Essential with a CVT is $19,799. Preferred starts from $21,899 or $23,399 with Sun & Tech Packages. The Ultimate trim car is $25,599 or $2,700 more for the Ultimate Tech Package. N Line is $27,599, or the Hybrid is available in Preferred ($24,699) or Luxury ($26,999).
