The 2021 Hyundai Elantra is a compact car with a lot of personality, especially after the redesign this model year. The Hyundai Elantra now features a sharp front fascia, angular zig-zagging body lines, and more attitude than ever before. The 2021 Toyota Corolla is a major competitor, but it doesn’t have the same kind of spirit the Elantra has.
Sculpted to be smooth, streamlined, and rounded, the 2021 Toyota Corolla couldn’t be more different from the Elantra design-wise. The Corolla will doubtless continue to move on thanks to its generations-long reputation and impressive sales figures, but can the new design of the Elantra throw everyone for a loop? Judging a book by its cover, many will choose the Elantra given its forward-thinking styling, but does it keep up with the Corolla when matching available features and other specifications?

The 2021 Hyundai Elantra is in good supply at San Tan Hyundai, and for good reason. As a compact sedan, it is one of the most frequently bought types of vehicles available. Although compact crossovers have won over a lot of sedan buyers lately, the charm and appeal of the 2021 Hyundai Elantra will hold its own.
When buying or leasing the latest Elantra, look for the four trim levels and pick the one that fits your needs best.
SE: This is the base trim level of the Hyundai Elantra, and it has a generous list of features including blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, wireless Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®, and an 8-Inch color infotainment touchscreen.
SEL: This trim offers drivers larger wheels, a hands-free smart trunk release, and a proximity key with push-button start with only a small increase in starting MSRP.
N-Line: A stronger engine and wheels larger than that of the SEL make the N-Line feel like a new vehicle altogether.
Limited: This trim returns to the 2.0L engine of the SE and SEL, but it features leather-trimmed seating surfaces, dynamic voice recognition, and the largest touchscreen available.
