Following Hyundai’s recent unveiling of the 2024 Elantra in South Korea, the American division has now introduced its version of this popular sedan, complete with several updates in both styling and features. Even the high-performance N variant is not left out of the improvements.

One of the most noticeable changes to the 2024 Elantra is its revamped front end. This includes a fresh fascia design that encompasses new headlights and front fenders. The main grille is more slender, and the headlights lean forward, contributing to a more sophisticated appearance. Hyundai has also opted for a flat stainless-steel badge instead of the traditional chrome emblem, adding a touch of modernity. The rear bumper has not been overlooked either, receiving enhanced gloss black trim. To complete the aesthetic overhaul, Hyundai offers the 2024 Elantra in a selection of new colors and pairs them with new wheel designs. The Elantra N, the high-performance version, undergoes similar stylistic adjustments, particularly in toning down its predominantly grille-focused fascia.

Moving inside the 2024 Elantra, the changes are subtler, with the core design remaining largely intact. However, there are updates in the form of color changes and a revised 4.2-inch screen in the instrument cluster on lower trim levels. The real upgrades come in the form of new features, enhancing both safety and convenience. Standard across all models are rear side airbags and a seatbelt reminder, while haptic steering wheel feedback has been introduced to provide safety warnings, such as for blind-spot monitoring. The SEL and higher trims now come with a 10.25-inch infotainment screen, while the Limited and N-Line models enjoy standard Bose audio. Moreover, all models benefit from additional USB-C outlets, and there’s an option to use your phone as a car key.

The Elantra N, designed for performance enthusiasts, receives its own set of changes. These modifications focus on enhancing the car’s handling characteristics, including stiffer bushings and mounts for the engine and suspension, as well as new calibrations for the electronic suspension control and electric power steering assist.

Regarding powertrains, the 2024 Elantra retains the same options as its predecessor, from the Hybrid to the N-Line.

The 2024 Elantra is set to hit the market in the fall, although pricing details have yet to be disclosed. However, it’s expected to remain competitive with the current model, which starts at approximately $22,000, including the destination charge. Hyundai’s latest offering promises a refreshed look and a slew of new features to entice both existing and prospective Elantra enthusiasts.
