Everything You Need to Know About the 2019 Hyundai Elantra


The Hyundai Elantra sits apart in a highly competitive class. This well-rounded compact car punches above its weight with stylish, contemporary design, advanced technology, top-notch fit-and-finish, and more.

Exterior Design

Hyundai opted for a more aggressive exterior look for the updated 2019 Elantra. The new model swaps curved lines and soft features for sharp, angled styling cues throughout. The headlights in particular have moved to a more triangular design. The profile and rear end remain similar to the previous generation.

Interior Amenities

You may be surprised by the available amenities inside the new Elantra. From sensible to design to upscale options, this new model's cabin has a lot to offer to drivers like yourself near Collierville, TN and Hernando, TN.

To start with, there's plenty of technology to access. An available eight-inch touchscreen multimedia display gives you easy control over navigation, rear-view camera, and much more. Plus, it's compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Available wireless device charging adds even more convenience to the 2019 Elantra.

There are even available features typically found in more premium nameplates. A leather-wrapped steering wheel and optional leather seats offer soft-touch refinement. Dual-zone automatic climate control is also available.



When it comes to performance, the 2019 Elantra places heavy emphasis on nimble handling and frugal fuel efficiency.

The standard powerplant for the 2019 Elantra is a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder unit producing a healthy 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. Paired to the available six-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC, this engine can achieve up to 38 mpg highway and 29 mpg city. If you're looking for a more engaged driving experience, you can choose the standard six-speed manual transmission in the SE trim.

There's yet another powertrain available for drivers who want maximum efficiency. The ECO trim level gives the Elantra a 1.4-liter turbocharged engine and a seven-speed EcoShift dual-clutch transmission with SHIFTRONIC. This setup allows the Elantra to achieve up to 40 mpg highway and 32 mpg city.



The new Elantra defies expectations for a compact car with its long list of available safety features. With both active and driving safety options throughout the trim levels, the Elantra gives you the available features that you're looking for near Memphis or Southaven.

  • Blind-Spot Collision Warning with Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection
