The 2021 Hyundai Elantra, An Enjoyable Surprise
By Lupita Colmenero
Luxurious, safe, and good value for your money are some of the qualities the 2021 Hyundai Elantra has to offer. What better way to experience all it has to offer than by driving it on the streets of Hollywood and the scenic highways of Santa Monica, California.
This sedan positions itself to compete with anyone in its class with any of its models, the SE, SEL, SEL-HEV LIMITED LIMITED-HEV, and the NLINE. Loaded with technology, Elantra’s boldness can be enjoyed inside and out. Starting with the beautifully designed voice-activated console, which includes a digital and voice-activation for most of its commands. Once programmed, the voice recognition system enables you to make phone calls and find directions without taking your eyes off the road. It also has a wireless phone charger, as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay apps. The driver and passenger seat adjustments can be programmed with a side button, and thanks to the memory system, seats and mirrors only need to be adjusted once. The interior light has a varied selection of colors, heating, and A/C in its front seats. Speaking of seating, it is well and spaciously distributed and the backseats fold down completely, in case you need more cargo space. And, if that is not enough, its leather seats provide the touch of originality that everyone can enjoy.
One of my favorite attributes is the lumbar support system, which is great for long drives. And to enjoy the soundtrack of any drive, the sound system boasts six high-resolution touchscreen speakers. Its AM/FM HD/ AM/FM HD/SiriusXM Radio audio system has an infinity of satellite programming options, available through Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It offers two USB ports, for charging and data. The A/C and heating systems are quiet and easy to navigate. The Bluetooth system is also accessible with voice recognition, essential to avoid driving distractions.
When it comes to security, the 2021 Hyundai Elantra goes above and beyond. It has Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA) and a reverse camera that offers ample visibility to prevent and avoid accidents. Its digital touchscreen offers essential alerts, such as tire pressure, battery, brake check, engine check, and more. I loved the alert system that reminds you if there are passengers in the backseat, designed to avoid leaving babies and young children in their car seats. It is also equipped with front, back, and side airbags throughout the entire interior. It has an anti-lock braking system and stability control system, as well as a climbing assistance system. The power of its 2.0-liter engine and 4 cylinders, give it an immediate force of 276 horsepower and a considerable towing capacity of 289-lb, while its smooth and quiet drive gives you an ideal ride whether on the city pavement or a country road.
We do not have enough space to describe all this sedan has to offer! It is definitely on my favorites’ list. Visit your Hyundai dealership and ask for a test drive. See for yourself everything the new 2021 Hyundai Elantra has to offer.
