The current-generation Hyundai Elantra’s angular design created a buzz when it was first launched in 2021. However, Hyundai has recently unveiled an updated version of the Korea-market Avante sedan that gives us an idea of what to expect from the 2024 Elantra, which is expected to reach the US market later this year.
The facelifted Elantra features revised headlights, a slimmer front grille, and new wheel designs, which improve the car’s overall appearance. At the back, the taillights look slightly different, and the rear bumper design is more aggressive than before.
Although no significant interior changes have been spotted, the Elantra may receive infotainment upgrades and new standard features.
Powertrain and Performance:
Hyundai is expected to stick with the current powertrain options for the 2024 Elantra, which includes a 2.0-liter inline-four, hybrid, and turbocharged 1.6-liter inline-four engine.
Elantra N Model:
The high-performance Elantra N, featuring a powerful 286-hp 2.0-liter turbo-four, is likely to receive similar styling changes in 2024. However, it may arrive a few months after the standard car. The Elantra N is also the only model that offers a manual transmission, as the lesser N Line version with its 1.6T engine dropped its six-speed manual option after the 2022 model year.
