2016 Hyundai Elantra vs 2015 Hyundai Elantra

new elantra vs old elantra specs

The Elantra is one of the most popular cars in the sedan class, due in large part to Hyundai’s ability to listen to consumers’ needs and innovatively respond to those needs through vehicle design. Since 2011, the Elantra has been significantly stepping up its game in order to compete with industry giants like Toyota, Mazda and Honda. When looking at comparable brands, Hyundai consistently is able to offer more car for less money almost without exception. With very comparable fuel economies and safety standards, the more you learn about Hyundai the more you may wonder why you hadn’t researched their lineup earlier. 

The Hyundai Elantra is roomier and more powerful than the competing Honda Civic, with 14.8ft3 of cargo space and 145 horsepower that accelerates to 60 MPH in 9.7 seconds and the automatic transmission gets a combined 32 miles to the gallon combined fuel economy. The Elantra engine can be upgraded to a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that is good for 173 horsepower, and while you’ll be sacrificing a few MPG in fuel economy, the more powerful two-liter with automatic will take you to 60 MPH in 8.2 seconds, which puts it squarely on the quicker side of the compact-sedan average. The roomy interior is suitable for kids and adults, with the only possible restrictions being in height and headroom. The ample trunk space is easily accessible with a low trunk edge liftover height. Check out what's new for Elantra with our 2016 Hyundai Elantra vs 2015 Hyundai Elantra comparison.

2016 Elantra carries over all that was working well in the 2015 model and primarily adds valuable options to the mix. The most exciting updates include a new trim level dubbed “Value Edition” that provides over $1000 in value savings on customer-favorite features like 16-inch alloy wheels, a power sunroof, a leather-wrapped tilt/telescope wheel, heated front seats, proximity key with push-button start, and side-mirror turn signals. The 2016 Value Edition most resembles the comparable 2015 Elantra SE with a Style Package with an MSRP of $20,725. More savings are built into the 2016 Elantra Limited trim with proximity key with push-button start and dual automatic temperature control—a $600 savings.  

Of course, the 2016 Elantra continues in the “Fluidic Sculpture” design vein as it replicates the interplay of wind with rigid surfaces to create the illusion of constant motion. The flowing lines, muscular wheel arches and sleek roofline all combine to enhance the aerodynamics of Elantra’s body, resulting in a class-leading low drag coefficient of 0.28. Options for 2016 Elantra will also be up-to-date with the latest versions of Hyundai Blue Link® and Hyundai’s telematics services program, Connected Care, plus all the interface and audio systems necessary to take full advantage of the latest devices from your driver’s seat.
