2022 Hyundai Elantra Overview

The 2021 Hyundai Elantra is an important model not just for Hyundai but small sedans in general. Hyundai introduced a design that was not only daring but unapologetically leaned into being a sedan. It is a small sedan designed for drivers who love sedans rather than try to convince consumers who are already more inclined to choose a crossover, and the response to these choices among customers at Glassman Hyundai was immediate and notable. The follow-up to this impressive success has arrived in the form of the 2022 model, and now, consumers have a choice to make between it and the outgoing model. In that spirit, let us compare the 2022 Hyundai Elantra vs 2021 Hyundai Elantra.

Exterior – Hyundai Dealer serving Southfield MI

It will probably come as no surprise that nothing has changed in terms of the design. The new aesthetic was such a grand hit that even the colors, wheel designs and so forth have been carried over pretty much untouched. All of the 2022 and 2021 Elantra models available at our location serving Detroit Southfield Waterford Michigan have a 107.1-inch wheelbase and a 5.3-inch minimum ground clearance. The overall length is 184.1 inches, which puts it at about 15.3 feet. The height is 55.7 inches, and the width, without mirrors, is 71.9 inches. There are three core trim levels available at Glassman Hyundai: SE, SEL and Limited. The base model features a chrome front grille and LED daytime running lamps. A dark chrome grille and all LED exterior lighting are available via the SEL Premium package and included with the Limited. Consumers also have the option of the sportier N Line and Elantra N models, which boast larger wheels, unique badging, special trim and, in the case of the N, a distinctive front fascia.

While the new model has not been crash-tested yet, the previous model earned a five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

An 8.0-inch color HD touchscreen is standard, and a 10.25-inch touchscreen with navigation is optional.
