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.

        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.

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

    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.

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

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