Hyundai is no longer focused on designing cars that are purely functional. The Elantra is proof of that with its stylish, angular body. The automaker now uses a design philosophy known as "Sensuous Sportiness" when going to the drawing board, and we have to admit we are fans. With its wide stance and a coupe-like roofline, the compact sedan looks far more capable than it actually is. The front fascia is dominated by a jewel-pattern grille and the headlights lead out from here, curving up around the corners ever so slightly. The rear end is wide with a solid brake light bar that stretches across the entire rear fascia. The N Line has model-specific front and rear trim.
Wheel sizes vary from 15 inches on the SE up to 18 inches on the N-Line. The Hybrid starts in the middle at 16 inches and tops out at 17 inches on the Limited. All models have LED DRLs, but only the top-end Limited trims get LED headlights as standard. Chrome exterior accents are standard on the base model, while the Limited gets dark chrome bits.
As a compact sedan, the Elantra doesn't take up a whole lot of space. It measures 184.1 inches in length and has a 107.1-inch wheelbase. Width stands at 71.9 inches and the sedan is 55.7 inches tall. The gas Elantra differs from the hybrid in terms of ground clearance, with the former getting 5.3 inches, while the latter has 5.5 inches. Curb weight also varies, starting at 2,725 pounds for the lighter gas models, going up to 3,020 lbs on the N-Line with the dual-clutch transmission. The hybrid starts at 2,965 lbs and maxes out at 3,069 lbs.
