Vehicle Overview

The 2020 Hyundai Elantra is arriving at your local dealership serving Westminster Colorado.

The CVT provides advantages on a number of fronts, including substantially improving what was already impressive fuel performance!

Without further ado, let us have a closer look at a compact car that is sure to shake up the segment.

Exterior - 2020 Hyundai Elantra

Anyone in the Westminster area may remember that the 2019 Elantra received a stunning redesign that made consumers and journalists alike take notice all over again.

A great reason to visit your dealer serving Westminster Colorado is to see the new interior in person. The biggest change comes to the dashboard, which has been redesigned not just for aesthetics but to make everything easier to use. Many critics have deemed the new dash much more intuitive. The instrument cluster display has been upgraded to a 3.5-inch screen. All Elantra models get a touchscreen, USB ports and Bluetooth. The Sport has some sporty interior accents as you might expect. The SEL and up gets a larger touchscreen, and the Value trim and up get smartphone integration. The Value may be the most popular Elantra since it adds niceties like heated seats and zoned climate control at very little cost.

Note that in addition to the standard engine that we will discuss in the powertrain section, consumers who opt for the Sport will get a turbocharged 1.6L and 18-inch wheels. The transmissions are otherwise the same. You also get high-performance brakes and tires. All Elantra models are front-wheel drive vehicles. The front disc brakes are ventilated. The rear brakes are drum style. A four-wheel anti-lock braking system is standard as is traction control. The Elantra suspension features front gas shocks as well as rear gas-pressurized shocks with rear coil springs. The power steering system is rack-pinion assisted by an electric motor that senses speed and adjusts the assistance accordingly.

As mentioned in the opener, the big change for anyone considering an Elantra in the Westminster Area is a switch to a CVT from the six-speed automatic transmission. This is a two-speed CVT with overdrive. The manual transmission will no longer be an option, and the base model will be available with a seven-speed automatic transmission with a dual clutch. The engine remains similar to the last model year, but be mindful that this is not a final 2020 Hyundai Elantra review. Specifications are subject to change. The standard engine is a 2.0L I-4 that uses regular gas. It achieves at least 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque, but there may be improvements from the CVT that we are not privy to yet.

Safety - 2020 Hyundai Elantra dealer

As of this writing, the IIHS and NHTSA have not yet performed a 2020 Hyundai Elantra review. That said, we do know that the Elantra has not made any changes that would lower its already high scores. In fact, those scores are likely to go up. That is because Hyundai is adding a number of driver aids to the base model, and these include automatic braking, lane keeping and forward collision warnings. Every Elantra features a rearview camera. At the base trim, you get a 5-inch touchscreen. At the SEL trim, that is upgraded to 7 inches and an 8-inch screen is available. The SEL also brings with it a number of other driver aids, such as blind-spot monitoring, lane departure and wake up for drowsy drivers.
