Hyundai offers three versions of the 2024 Elantra: SE, SEL, and Limited. Their power source is a 147-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that works with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). According to the EPA’s fuel economy estimations, the SE returns 32 mpg in the city and 41 mpg on the highway, while the SEL and Limited are rated for 31 mpg around town and 40 mpg on the open road.
The equipment list for the entry-level SE includes LED projector-style headlights with automatic on/off, fabric upholstery, manual air conditioning, a six-way manually adjustable driver’s seat with height control, power side mirrors, four USB ports (two per row), a tilt and telescopic steering column, remote keyless entry, a 4.25-inch gauge cluster, and 15-inch alloy wheels.
The SEL adds dual-zone automatic climate controls, proximity keyless entry, push-button start, a hands-free trunk release, a 10.25-inch gauge cluster, and 16-inch alloy wheels. Buyers can add the available SEL Convenience Package to get heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, an electronic parking brake, heated power side mirrors, wireless device charging, a 60/40 split-folding rear seatback, 17-inch alloy wheels, and additional driver-assist features (detailed below). The Limited gets everything from the SEL with the Convenience Package, plus H-Tex upholstery, a power driver’s seat, a digital key (vehicle access and operation via a smartphone app), and trim-specific exterior accents.
All 2024 Elantras come with SmartSense, Hyundai’s suite of advanced driver-assist technologies, consisting of forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, lane-keeping assist, lane-following assist, automatic high beams, driver attention warning, and safe exit warning. The SEL with the Convenience Package and the Limited also get upgraded forward collision-avoidance assist (with pedestrian, cyclist, and junction turning detection) and adaptive cruise control. Exclusive to the Limited are a blind-spot view monitor, a surround-view monitor, highway driving assist, front and rear parking sensors, and rear parking collision-avoidance assist.
The SE and SEL get the base 8-inch infotainment touchscreen, while the SEL with the Convenience Package and the Limited get the upgrade: a 10.25-inch touchscreen with navigation. Both of these multimedia systems are supported by Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, which is wireless in conjunction with the 8-inch screen but must be plugged in with the larger screen. Bluetooth and voice recognition are also standard. The SE and SEL get the base audio setup, while the Limited has an eight-speaker Bose unit. SiriusXM satellite radio and access to Bluelink connected services are included with the SEL and the Limited.
