What it is: Hyundai redesigned its Elantra compact sedan last year with structural enhancements and new styling inside and out, as well as new powertrains, safety features and technology. Elantra competitors include the Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus, Honda Civic, Mazda3, Nissan Sentra and Toyota Corolla. The Elantra GT four-door hatchback is covered separately in the Cars.com Research section.
A new SEL trim level slots between the SE and Value Edition. It includes blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, a 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, a backup camera with dynamic guidelines, 16-inch alloy wheels, heated side mirrors and automatic headlights. The Sport version gains a power sunroof and blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert.
