The 2020 Hyundai Elantra will be more expensive than the last year’s model. It received the new active safety technologies and a new transmission as standard.
Hyundai has reported that the Elantra base price for the SE trim will be $19,870. A new standard suite of active safety features includes automatic emergency braking and frontal collision warnings.
From now on, the Elantra with any package is equipped with a 3.5-inch screen in a cluster of sensors, a dual-zone automatic climate control and some other new options.
Other innovations include a more efficient electric heater with a temperature coefficient. The Elantra Eco got a Start/Stop system.
An CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) replaces the last year’s usual 6-speed automatic one. There is no manual gearbox for the Elantra SE any more.
The CVT will now be mounted on each Elantra model, with the exception of the Elantra Sport and Eco, which instead have 7-speed dual-clutch automatics.
Hyundai will begin deliveries of the model to dealers this spring.
