The South Korean company Hyundai never ceases to amaze with its efficiency: following the renewal of the range of crossovers, jewelry refinement of premium segment cars (Genesis) and the bright debut of the new Sonata, a completely new body of the 2021 Hyundai Elantra (in Korea — Avante) is entering the market.

Next generation overview

In 2019, the Hyundai Elantra underwent a thorough restyling, among other things, giving the car stylish triangular headlights.

But less than a year later, the Koreans showed the world the new Hyundai Elantra 2021 model year of the seventh generation already — with a radically changed appearance and a revised line of engines, where, moreover, a hybrid power plant appeared.

The Korean middle class in the guise of Elantra is immensely popular. The number of cars of this model sold worldwide is approaching 14 million, and almost a third of all sales are in the American market.

It is there that the first batches of new sedans will be delivered, pre-orders for which will be accepted by dealers from day to day.

It is known about the new Hyundai Elantra 2021 model year that a platform was used in its design, which made it possible to stretch the wheelbase and, as a result, increase the new body and expand the interior space.

Dimensions of the novelty:

• length — 4650 mm. (+30 mm compared to the previous version);

• width — 1825 mm. (+25 mm.);

• height — 1420 mm. (-20 mm.);

• wheelbase — 2720 mm. (+20 mm.)

The used «cart» allows you to put 15-, 16- and 17-inch wheels, and thanks to the new body, the entire interior was able to move a little back.

An important nuance — the rear suspension of the new sedan is represented by a beam structure, and the manufacturer decided to install the «multi-link» only on hybrid modifications.

The appearance of the new 2021 Hyundai Elantra is able to attract the eyes of others, as it is saturated with dynamism through and through.

What are the three «blades» at the stern with optics successfully integrated into such a complex sculptural ensemble or a chic profile with an unusual broken stamping on the front doors.

No less original is the «devilish» front end with a huge «smile» of the radiator grille and headlights, in the bodies of which «horns-turn signals» are inscribed.

The new design in the Korean company received the unusual name Parametric Dynamics, and structurally the Elantra remains a C-class sedan with a small trunk lid.

The interior of the Hyundai Elantra 2021 of the seventh generation has not only become more spacious: a new multifunction steering wheel has appeared, a handle is installed on the central tunnel on the passenger side, «fencing off» the cockpit, and on the center console — in the case of expensive versions of the sedan — two 10.25-inch touchscreen display.

In cheaper versions, the «tidy» will be analog, and in the center of the dashboard there will be an 8-inch touchscreen with handles on the sides.

Technical stuffing

Hyundai Elantra 2021 model year will be on sale next fall, and its first buyers will be Americans and Koreans.

From here, the manufacturer has so far announced only modifications for two main markets:

• In Korea, the sedan will be sold with a naturally aspirated 123 hp 1.6 MPI engine and a 1.6 LPI gas engine (120 hp).

• In the US, the novelty will initially be released with a 2.0-liter «aspirated» MPI (149 hp)

The transmission is the same for all modifications with internal combustion engines — wedge-chain variator.
The hybrid, which will be sold in all markets simultaneously, will be a pair of a 1.6 GDI gasoline engine and a 43.5-horsepower electric motor integrated into a robotic gearbox.

The total power of such a hybrid unit will reach 141 hp. from. (264 Nm of torque), and the electric motor will be powered by a small 1.32-kilowatt battery.

Of course, its power is only enough to activate the engine at the moments of starting the internal combustion engine and the first seconds of acceleration of the car.

Start of sales in Russia of a new sedan

Kaliningrad Avtotor just last year started assembling the Elantra sedans of the 2019 model year, so it would be premature to hope for an early re-equipment of assembly lines for the release of an updated version.

Most likely, for the next year or two, we will have to be content with the sixth generation restyled Elantra cars, which are currently sold in Russia in four types of trim levels (Start, Base, Active, Elegance), as well as with two engines and two transmissions to choose from:

• 1.6 MPI (128 HP) + 6-speed manual transmission;
• 1.6 MPI (128 HP) + 6-automatic transmission;
• 2.0 MPI (149 HP) + 6-speed manual transmission;
• 2.0 MPI (149 HP) + 6-automatic transmission.
