2022 Hyundai Elantra Review: Specs and Pricing


Hyundai Elantra

OVERVIEW


The 2022 Hyundai Elantra's distinctive appearance makes it stick out in traffic, but the compact car it conceals is roomy and useful. Its interior is decorated in a comparable futuristic style, and several high-end features are available, especially on the top-tier trims, to add to the wow factor.


The base engine is a sluggish four-cylinder with 147 horsepower that is connected to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), but a hybrid drivetrain and a turbocharged four with 201 horsepower are both available. The Elantra competes against formidable rivals like the Honda Civic, Nissan Sentra, and Toyota Corolla, and because of its appealing design and cost-effective packing, it's a great option among compact cars.


What Has Changed For 2022?


The Elantra maintains its 2021 model year design for the model year 2022. This year's Elantra N model is expected to be sporty, although we don't review it here.


2022 Hyundai Elantra: Engine And Performance


The typical non-hybrid drivetrain consists of a front-wheel-drive, four-cylinder engine with 147 horsepower, and a CVT. A 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor are used in the hybrid variant to provide 139 horsepower. A six-speed automatic handles gearshifts in the hybrid.


While none of these alternatives has a startling acceleration, we found a non-hybrid model to have a good ride and enough power for everyday city and highway driving during our test drive. The performance-focused Elantra N, which we assess separately, is the most exciting Elantra, but those who can't quite afford that car's price tag may want to try the more subdued N Line variant.


It has a 1.6-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that is coupled to either a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. After a brief test drive, we were impressed by the N Line's vivacious acceleration and deft handling, which boosts the athleticism without sacrificing a harsh ride.



2022 Hyundai Elantra: Interior And Comfort


The Elantra's interior is well-designed, offering enough room and excellent visibility to the outside from the front seats. We're also happy to discover that the back seat has 2 inches more legroom than the previous version, making room for taller people.

The Elantra is one of this class's roomiest vehicles, even though their heads may still barely touch the ceiling. The driver's seat on our Elantra Limited test car was power-adjustable. Since it has a large adjustment range, it should fit drivers of all heights. A lot of adjustment options are available for the steering wheel, making it simple to achieve the perfect driving position.


2022 Hyundai Elantra: Connectivity


The twin display displays in the Elantra Limited, one for the infotainment system and the other for the instruments are easy to operate. Menus and instructions on the infotainment screen are simple to understand and navigate.

In addition, the Elantra earns bonus points for offering wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, despite having only an 8-inch touchscreen screen. Confusingly, any smartphone integration method needs a connection to operate on the larger 10.25-inch screen.


The Limited's upgraded voice activation system, which reliably reacts to instructions for web searches, locations, and even climate control, is another plus. One of the best contemporary technologies is the full package of optional sophisticated driving aids, which includes lane centering and smooth adaptive cruise control. During our testing, we didn't see any erroneous alerts.


2022 Hyundai Elantra: Pricing


The base price of the 2022 Hyundai Elantra sedan is $19,850, one of the lowest in the compact car segment. The SEL trim costs a further $1,100, while the Limited trim costs $25,600. Elantra N Line with a turbocharger priced at $24,250. The midsize Hyundai Sonata starts at $24,150 as a point of comparison.


Which One To Purchase?


The optimum combination of price and functionality is provided by the mid-range SEL variant. We'd choose the SEL Convenience option, which comes with heated front seats, an adaptive cruise control system, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a wireless smartphone charging pad, and a 10.3-inch digital gauge display.
