2023 Hyundai Elantra review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2023 Hyundai Elantra?

The Hyundai Elantra is a value-conscious compact sedan available with a choice of three engines. A 147-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder is standard, coupled with a continuously variable automatic transmission. The Elantra Hybrid is motivated by a gas-electric hybrid drivetrain rated at 139 hp and employs a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The performance-themed N Line has a 201-hp, turbo 1.6-liter four-cylinder that’s coupled with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, and for high-performance enthusiasts, the racy Elantra N gets a 276-hp, turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder (with a choice of six-speed manual or eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmissions) and a track-tuned chassis.

The Elantra offers 19 cubic feet of cargo space, according to Cars.com’s cargo measurements. You can see how it scored in our Car Seat Check here. Direct rivals include the Honda Civic, Kia Forte and Toyota Corolla.

What’s New on the 2023 Hyundai Elantra?

For 2023, the Elantra’s SEL Convenience Package adds 17-inch alloy wheels and a 10.3-inch digital gauge display, and — performance fans take note — the N Line is no longer offered with a manual transmission; that’s only available with the top-trim N variant.

What Features in the 2023 Hyundai Elantra Are Most Important?

Standard features include:

  • 8-inch touchscreen multimedia system
  • Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity
  • Cruise control
  • Two USB ports
  • Keyless entry
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert
  • Lane departure steering assist
  • Automatic high-beam headlights

Available features include:

  • LED headlights and taillights
  • Power moonroof
  • Leather-trimmed seats
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • 10.25-inch touchscreen
  • Navigation
  • Wireless device charging
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Digital instrument panel
  • Adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability

Should I Buy the 2023 Hyundai Elantra?

The Elantra is a solid value with an eye-catching exterior you wouldn’t expect in a budget-minded compact sedan. Ride quality is good, and the Elantra’s handling makes it nimble in city traffic. The standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine delivers decent pep and refinement. If limiting your use of fuel is a priority, know that the Elantra Hybrid delivers an EPA-estimated 54 mpg in combined city and highway driving. What’s not to like? There are some noticeable penny-pinching materials in the Elantra’s cabin, plus some powertrain lag from the turbo engine in the sportier N Line trim.

We bought our 2023 Huundai Elantra SEL at Star Hyundai in Bayside, N.Y. The car is great. It came with the convenience package. It was a little more than what we wanted in a car ... we're simple people. BUT, A WARNING TO ALL CONSUMERS ... STAY AWAY FROM STAR HYUNDAI IN BAYSIDE NY. THEY GAVE POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE AND THEY'RE CROOKS!! As much as I love my new 2023 Elantra, the dealer made buying a new car that should be a wonderful experience and turned it into a very BAD EXPERIENCE! The dealer was rude, nasty and dishonest. My $25,150 car ended up final a total of $32,000 that was including my BIG DOWN PAYMENT. Because of their dishonesty, this made my car extremely unaffordable. The dealer took advantage of our horrible circumstances and I resent them for that. My husband and I lost our 2018 Elantra due to a lot of damage and our insurance company only gave us a week to turn in the rental. So, it gave my husband and I 1 weekend to buy a new car. The dealer saw we were stressed and vulnerable and they took advantage of us. 1 mistake my husband and I made was to tell them we had only 1 weekend to find a car because we had to give back the rental in less than 7 days. So, it didn't leave us time to go from dealer to dealer. Unfortunately, we signed the contract blindly because we needed the car and we needed to get out of there because we made ourselves sick over this horrible experience. We called the dealer a few days later or so when our minds were a little clearer we called the dealer back to explain how they got to the amount of $32,000. Would you believe that they got nasty, and started yelling at us because we received a survey from Hyundai to rate our service and we didn't give them a good rating. So, they weren't willing to speak with us on a professional level. That just shows you how thinned skin the dealer was. We launched a complaint to Hyundai Corporation and they said "sorry about your bad experience, but each Hyundai dealer is individually owned and there is nothing we can do to help you". I think it's a disgrace that Hyundai doesn't care what these dealers do and won't help the consumer. You would think that they would care a little more since their name is on it. We'll, my husband and I made a decision that we will refinance the car to get a better price on our loan and trade the car in within 1 to 3 years. Just because I don't want to own the car from a company who doesn't car. We originally was going to trade the car in after we get the title, but we would lose a tremendous amount of money on the car and who can afford that.


Not satisfied

When we bought the car they never gave us a second key said it was backlogged still don't have it too stuffy in front seats
