    Multiple engines choices 

    The 2023 Hyundai Elantra is available in two gasoline engine options - 1.6L MPI and 2.0L. The smaller 1.6L engine produces a maximum power of 128 PS at 6,300 RPM along with a peak torque of 154 Nm coming at 4,850 RPM.

    On the other hand, the top-of-the-line trim gets a bigger 2.0L engine that produces 159 PS of power at 6,200 RPM and a peak torque of 191 Nm at 4,500 RPM. The transmission in both variants is handled by a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

    The 2023 Hyundai Elantra also includes a hybrid option that adds an electric touch to the midsize sedan. The electric motor is backed by a lithium Ion battery to pack in extra torque at the start to add in a punchy feel. Electric driving is available at a maximum speed of 120 kmph. The braking system is regenerative in the hybrid model, increasing fuel efficiency even further.

    N Line additions

    The N Line treatment adds extra punch to the visuals of the sedan. The model gets exclusive 18-inch alloy wheels, along with twin exhaust tips for a sportier appeal. Even the ORVMs are made in glossy black to look like an attractive piano black finish.

    Apart from the visual changes, the N Line model also packs in a multi-link rear suspension to reduce vibrations coming from the road and the wheels and offer increased stability and fun quotient during high speeds. The N Power Shifts minimize torque drop with better clutch controls and acceleration. And finally, the front disc brakes are larger than the regular model to improve the braking performance as well.

    The front grille is available either in chrome or black-out treatment. The illumination system gets LED projectors along with LED and bulb rear combination lights. The DRLs up front pass horizontally across the headlights, adding a touch of visual appeal.

    Strong safety shield

    Along with that, the Elantra gets advanced driver assistance systems to ensure a safe ride always. There is a Forward Collision-avoidance Assist, along with Blind-spot Collision-avoidance Assist. The car even gets a smart cruise control which maintains distance from the vehicle ahead. The Rear Cross-traffic Collision-avoidance Assist comes with emergency braking to improve safety further.


    The 2023 Hyundai Elantra gets a bucket load of features for its price. Moreover, the availability of multiple options on the exterior side is just the icing on the cake. Both the engine options are good and have a lot of punch. Plus, the addition of hybrid and N Line models to the lineup adds a lot of sheen to the midsize sedan.

    So, considering the starting price point of AED 56,900, the car is quickly the looker in the Middle Eastern market and is recommended for both new buyers as well as people looking to switch upgrades.
