What Is the 2022 Hyundai Elantra?
Redesigned last year, the Hyundai Elantra is a budget-friendly compact sedan that’s available with a choice of three engines. A 147-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder is standard, working with a continuously variable automatic transmission. The sportier N Line trim gets a 201-hp, turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder that pairs with a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. The fuel-sipping Elantra Hybrid is powered by a gas-electric hybrid drivetrain rated at 139 hp. It uses a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Elantra rivals include the Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla and Nissan Sentra.

The Hyundai Elantra offers 19 cubic feet of cargo space, according to Cars.com’s cargo measurements. You can see how it scored in our Car Seat Check here.

Should I Buy the 2022 Hyundai Elantra?
The Elantra’s sharply creased, aggressive exterior styling is eye-catching, but there’s a lot of substance here, too. Ride quality and handling are good, and the base 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is refined. The hybrid model, meanwhile, offers impressive EPA-estimated gas mileage of up to 54 mpg combined. The biggest drawbacks are the Elantra’s low-grade interior materials and powertrain lag in the N Line version.
