Overall

The award-winning Hyundai Elantra returns for 2014 with extensive design upgrades and a more powerful GDI engine in the new Sport trim. A host of new features have also been added, while maintaining the roominess, warranty and safety that has made Elantra a three-time recipient of the ALG Residual Value Award. In total, more than 75 Elantra major sub-systems are new or redesigned. The all-new 2014 Elantra Sport and the rest of the Elantra line up was introduced today at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.

The 2014 Elantra receives all-new front and rear exterior designs, along with interior styling upgrades. Sport-tuned steering and suspension calibrations sharpen the new Elantra Sport’s handling, while extensive technology upgrades improve ergonomics for the entire Elantra Sedan lineup.

New technologies built into the 2014 Elantra include the application of the next-generation navigation and audio technology, which feature simpler user interfaces, enhanced voice recognition commands, improved navigation screens and available Pandora internet radio. A 4.3-inch color touchscreen with integrated rearview camera is now available on the entry level SE, in the Preferred Package, and as standard equipment on the Elantra Sport and Limited.

REFRESHED EXTERIOR DESIGN

For 2014, the Elantra has received a host of exterior design changes. The front and rear styling of the 2014 Hyundai Elantra have been altered for a more stable, balanced look. Up front, a new open-mouth lower bumper, grille, more technical foglights and projector headlamps with LED accents add a dynamic, precise feel to Elantra. The whole L-shaped foglight graphic stabilizes the front end and gives the car a more grounded look, while maintaining a greater sense of width that forces the eye to the corners. The headlamp and taillamp LED accents were also given a more technical appearance to give the Elantra a stronger attitude. From the profile, a chrome beltline molding and new sets of 17-inch alloy wheels on the Elantra Limited and Sport accentuate the Elantra’s premium image. A new black, two-tone rear diffuser also sharpens the look of the 2014 Elantra.
