2022 Hyundai Elantra

2022 Elantra Photos
With its angular styling and feature-packed spec sheet, the 2022 Hyundai Elantra is a compact sedan with plenty of points in its favor. This lineup ranges from frugal to luxurious to two flavors of downright sporty, depending on the trim level.

For 2022, the long-awaited Elantra N joins the lineup with 276 horsepower from a turbo-4 and a buttoned-down suspension that was tuned on some of Germany's most demanding race courses.

Most Elantras make use of a 147-hp inline-4 and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) aimed at delivering good fuel economy for a reasonable price, though decent steering and a comfortable ride elevate the Elantra above compact car norms. The Elantra Hybrid packs spectacular fuel economy without losing out on power and drivability.

Speaking of mpgs, they range from 33 mpg city, 43 highway, 37 combined for most versions to as high as 53/56/54 mpg for the Elantra Hybrid Blue. Predictably, the more powerful Elantra N Line asks for more fuel: figure 28/36/31 mpg with the optional 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox or 25/31/28 mpg with the standard 6-speed manual transmission.

Hyundai packs every Elantra with automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, and active lane control. Adaptive cruise control and blind-spot monitors are optional on most trim levels.

The NHTSA rates the Elantra at five stars overall, with a four-star score for front-impact protection. The Limited trim level with its 'Good'? headlights was awarded a Top Safety Pick from the IIHS, which noted that other versions don't offer as impressive nighttime lighting.
