If you’re in the market for a small sedan, then there’s a great chance you have heard about and are considering the 2020 Hyundai Elantra. The Elantra is among the most popular and well-regarded sedans on the market, and the new model is available at Hyundai of Anderson right now! We’re your local Hyundai experts serving Anderson Spartanburg Greenville South Carolina, and we have all the information you need, included the latest details concerning Elantra trim levels and features. In that spirit, let’s take a closer look at the 2020 Hyundai Elantra trim levels and consider the differences.
The 2020 Hyundai Elantra is a front-wheel-drive sedan that provides seating for five passengers and allows for 14.4 cubic feet of storage in the trunk. Most Elantra models feature a 2.0L four-cylinder engine mated to Hyundai’s intelligent variable transmission or IVT. The base engine makes 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. A big change for this model year is that Hyundai’s base SmartSense package is now included with the SE. It adds a driver’s blind-spot mirror, a rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, forward collision avoidance and lane keeping assist. Standard equipment includes 15-inch steel wheels, a 5-inch touchscreen and a 60/40-split folding rear seat. An optional tech package lets you add a larger touchscreen and many infotainment bells and whistles.
The second of the 2020 Hyundai Elantra trim levels builds on the base model with 16-inch alloy wheels and four-wheel disc brakes. It eliminates the driver’s blind-spot mirror and replaces it with a blind-spot collision warning system. It also adds automatic headlamps, heated side mirrors and an insulated hood. Perhaps the best reason to upgrade from the base model to the SEL is the much more robust infotainment system. It features a 7-inch high-resolution touchscreen, voice recognition, a Bluetooth hands-free phone system and support for both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The base six-speaker audio system is enhanced with satellite radio and a complimentary Sirius subscription.
The Value trim builds on the already value-oriented SEL with a series of popular features at a price reduced from what they would cost if you added them to the SEL as options. This trim features push-button start and proximity lock and unlock. Added niceties include a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a heated seat for the driver and front passenger. You also get a hands-free smart trunk, which will automatically open for you if you remain near the rear of the vehicle for a short period. Similarly, the Value features illuminated door handles that automatically light up as you approach the vehicle at night.
The Limited builds on the Value Edition with many extras. It also gives you the option of the Ultimate Package, which adds an 8-inch touchscreen, an integrated navigation system, a 4.2-inch instrument cluster, a power tilt-and-slide panoramic sunroof, smart cruise control, automatic high beam control, a smart memory system for seating and mirrors and a more sophisticated forward collision mitigation system with pedestrian detection. The standard wheel and tire size is 17 inches. The side mirrors are upgraded with integrated turn-signal indicators. The Limited has chrome exterior accents. All of the exterior lighting—headlamps, taillamps and daytime running lamps—are upgraded to LED. It also upgrades the upholstery to leather and adds wireless charging for smartphones and other devices.
There are also two other 2020 Hyundai Elantra trim levels that we won’t cover here: the Eco and Sport. The Eco is similar to the Value but boasts a more fuel-efficient—and less powerful—powertrain. The Sport, on the other hand, is similar to the Limited but equipped with a 201-horsepower 1.6-liter engine.
