Trims, Powertrain, and Fuel Economy

The Blue and Limited make up the ’23 Elantra Hybrid’s simple trim lineup. Their highly efficient hybrid powertrain pairs a 1.6-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine with a 32kW electric motor to yield a combined system output of 139 hp. A six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and front-wheel drivetrain complete the mechanical picture. According to the EPA’s official fuel economy estimates, the Blue trim returns 53 mpg around town and 56 mpg on the highway. The Limited’s numbers are 49 mpg city and 52 mpg highway. The regenerative braking system in the Elantra Hybrid captures kinetic energy formed during the braking process and uses it to incrementally recharge the battery.

Standard and Available Equipment

The base-level Blue is comfortable with dual-zone automatic climate control and heated front seats. It’s also generously equipped with keyless entry, push-button start, automatic headlights, LED daytime running lights, frost-melting heated exterior mirrors, a hands-free trunk, two USB ports (one for charging and the other for data), Bluelink connected car services, and illuminated vanity mirrors. The Limited gets even more, with the likes of leather seats (ventilated in the front row), LED headlights and taillights, Digital Key (which turns your smartphone into the key for the vehicle), a wireless phone charger, a class-exclusive 10.25-inch digital gauge cluster, exterior mirrors with built-in turn-signal indicators, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, a power driver’s seat with position memory, customizable ambient interior lighting, and a 60/40-split rear seatback with a folding center armrest and cupholders.

SmartSense Driver-Assist Technology

Hyundai’s SmartSense suite of active driver aids comes standard on the Elantra Hybrid to help make collisions less likely. Installed on both trims are driver attention warning, automatic high beams, forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, lane keeping assist, lane following assist, and safe exit warning. Some additional features appear on the Limited: rear parking sensors, enhanced forward collision-avoidance assist with cyclist and junction turning detection, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, reverse parking collision-avoidance assist, and highway driving assist.

Sophisticated Multimedia

Infotainment is another strong point of the 2023 Elantra Hybrid. The Blue trim has an 8-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, voice recognition, HD and satellite radio (SiriusXM), and Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming. Although the Limited trades wireless smartphone connectivity for plug-in, the rest of its multimedia system is elevated with a 10.25-inch touchscreen, integrated navigation, dynamic voice recognition, and a deluxe eight-speaker Bose audio system with a subwoofer.
