2022 Elantra Exterior

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.
