Updated 2019 Hyundai Elantra Goes On Sale, Priced From $17,985

Hyundai has announced the pricing details of the revised 2019 Elantra, which now features a sharper new styling and better technology.

The new Hyundai Elantra sedan goes on sale now, with prices kicking off from $17,985 (including an $885 freight charge) for the base SE model with the 147hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and the six-speed manual. That’s just $150 more than last year’s model.

The engine range also includes a turbocharged 1.4-liter unit with 128hp, offered only in conjuction with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission in the Eco model, which is priced from $21,835.

The third and final engine option is a turbocharged 1.6-liter, which will be available exclusively in the Sport model, paired to either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Prices start from $23,285. Hyundai will reveal all the details of the Sport later in the year, when it will make its official debut.

Changes include a new front end that is now much more eye-catching, featuring triangular headlights, a new grille and bumper, as well as redesigned fenders. The rear end gets new taillights, tailgate and bumper.

The cabin has also received a range of updates, including a new instrument cluster, redesigned air vents, new audio/climate switchgear and a new center console. The AVN 5.0 infotainment system is also new, featuring an eight-inch touchscreen display, a faster processor, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, as well as HERE HD Traffic.

All models from SEL trim and above will also feature active safety systems such as Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Keep Assist and Driver Attention Alert as standard.

    Hopefully the Sport design carries on unchanged…

        Because it looks better than this…….thing.

    I still cant wrap my head around the fact that they want their cars to look better than Alfas, yet they slap on a face like that onto the Elantra.

      Yes, Toyota will be proud to influence.

    • Dennis Scipio

      I fail to realize that is so wrong with this Facelifted design?

  • kachuks

    On the plus side, a fender-bender to the front bumper area wont be noticeable since it wont look warped out of shape.

    Considering I have a 2017, this looks decent…and bad at the same time. Of course the loaded/sport trims will look the best, but mid-level and base models will most definitely be the trims to avoid going with this design.

    I am still confused on what Hyundai is trying to do with there design language, or languages. Did they say each vehicle will look different? Or will there be a language across the board? If there is a common design language, this and the spy shots of the next Sonata look like polar opposites. I am basing this off of refreshed models giving an idea of what the next all-new model will look like.

    In pictures it looks terrible, but maybe in person it has a different front end.

  • WalthamDan

    Another backwards step in Hyundai design. Queue the incentives to move these.

  • Matthew Raworth

    Oh god that front end, is it curvy? is it it angular? No one knows, it’s all part of the mystery.
