Miles per gallon-equivalent is how the EPA provides efficiency ratings for battery-electric vehicles in a way that can be used in comparison with gasoline-powered vehicles. Actual mileage will vary depending on driving conditions, driving habits, elevation changes, weather, accessory usage (lights, climate control), vehicle condition and other factors.

Battery capacity Battery capacity

Battery capacity is measured in kilowatt-hours, which is a measure of how much energy is used over time. A 70-kWh battery has more energy capacity than a 50-kWh battery and would result in a longer driving range if all other factors were equal. But more battery capacity doesn’t always mean longer range because of differences in energy consumption from vehicle to vehicle. Battery capacity provided by Chrome Data, a JD Power company.

2022 Hyundai Elantra HEV review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2022 Hyundai Elantra?

Redesigned last year, the Hyundai Elantra is a budget-friendly compact sedan that’s available with a choice of three engines: A 147-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder is standard, working with a continuously variable automatic transmission. The sportier N Line trim gets a 201-hp, turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder that pairs with a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. The fuel-sipping Elantra Hybrid is powered by a gas-electric hybrid drivetrain rated at 139 hp; it uses a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Elantra rivals include the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla and Nissan Sentra.

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.

Should I Buy the 2022 Hyundai Elantra?

The Elantra’s sharply creased, aggressive exterior styling is eye-catching, but there’s a lot of substance here, too. Ride quality and handling are good, and the base 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is refined. The hybrid model, meanwhile, offers impressive EPA-estimated gas mileage of up to 54 mpg combined. The biggest drawbacks are the Elantra’s low-grade interior materials and powertrain lag in the N Line version.
