The 2021 Hyundai Elantra made its global debut back on March 17, 2020. The all-new compact sedan was unveiled with two variants one being a fossil fuel power vehicle and the other being a hybrid. The South Korean manufacturer also announced that it will also be revealing a performance N-Line version of the Elantra soon. Hyundai, however, has not yet made any further announcements on the variant.
In case you missed its global launch here is what you need to know about the 2021 Hyundai Elantra.
Hyundai Digital Key
The 2021 Elantra now features a digital key that uses your smartphone as its fob. Through an app that you can download, your family members can easily have access to the vehicle without the need to bring around physical car keys. The new key lets the user lock, unlock and start the vehicle remotely from up to 90ft away.
New voice recognition feature
You can now operate the 2021 infotainment and climate controls with just the sound of your voice. The new software can do more than just operate the controls, it features enhanced natural language voice recognition with speech to meaning and deep meaning understanding technology. All of these features help your vehicle understand you more to help you control it better.
The all-new Elantra comes with a more driver-focused cockpit with controls easily being within reach. It also comes with two new wide information displays that blend seamlessly into one to give you critical information at a glance.
Safety has not been overlooked for the 2021 Hyundai Elantra. It now comes with a slew of safety features such as Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist for pedestrians, Lane Follow Assist, Blind Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, and Reverse Parking Collision Assist just to name a few. The company states that these features will not only make the vehicle easier to drive but safer for you, your passengers, and your family members as well.
New angular design
You rarely see triangles being used in car designs and the all-new Elantra breaks that mold by incorporating the shape into its parametric dynamics design language. It features triangle design cues at almost every angle of the vehicle giving it a sharp look with edgy styling. (pun intended)
The sixth generation of the South Korean sedan is now longer, wider, and lower than before. Even with its new dimensions and its fastback roof like the Elantra still promises to give its occupants a spacious interior cabin. The all-new vehicle is now 25mm wider, 30mm longer, and 20mm lower than its predecessor.
While the 2021 Hyundai Elantra is not yet in the Philippines it is definitely a vehicle worth waiting for. Hyundai Philippines has also not released any official statement with regards to if or when it will be bringing in the all-new model.
