Hyundai Elantra vs. Sonata 2023

1. Introduction

Sonata is our signature vehicle. We have used this vehicle as a cornerstone in trying to enhance the Hyundai brand. Its first rendition in North America as a "two-door coupe" was a small example of trying to break out of the shell of being an "economy car brand", but we understand we failed on that attempt. Next are the years 2002-2005 as we continued to try and mimic a Honda Accord/Toyota Camry with a miscalculating of building a larger version of the famous Elantra, the EF Sonata and Sonata NF. These were unsure times on trying to see still where we belonged in the realm of the auto industry. It was not until 2010 when YF Sonata was introduced, where we made a huge plunge in changing the image of Sonata. Trying to separate from still being a cheaper alternative of the Accord and Camry, we wanted to show that we can build an elegant and stylish vehicle that can compete with its rivals. With much success of the YF Sonata being sold until 2014, building the current LF Sonata with a vehicle that tries to add on even more to the success of its predecessor. This brings us to today...and tomorrow with the new 2021 Sonata. Step into the new world of the 2021 Sonata.

At Hyundai, we value improvement. As a vehicle company, we understand that with the fast pace of how technology is evolving, we need to move with the flow. We spent the past few years trying to bring new, exciting, and state-of-the-art vehicles to you. It is not to state we are too great to complain, but through these improvements we have learned to listen more to past experiences. We have taken the time to study and listen from many former Elantra owners on how to enhance the value of this vehicle. Through much constructive criticism, we agreed to shift the Elantra up to compact status up to a mid-sized sedan. With all the talk of the new "Genesis" and what it has completed with the Sonata, we saw this as a perfect occasion to shift the Elantra up and procreate a new 2021 Sonata that is better in every way. Through this, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Elantra as production ends in Ulsan, but do not be concerned it will only stand a gap in availability for Elantra since we plan on revealing the new Sonata right before the Elantra is phased out. Step into the new world of the 2021 Sonata.

1.1. Overview of Hyundai Elantra

Coming close to the end of 2023, the Elantra is expected to have an N Line model available. This N Line model will feature a 1.6L turbocharged GDI engine and a performance-oriented design. In addition to that, a more aggressive version known as the Elantra N is expected to also be released at another time. This N version will exhibit higher performance and a unique design. Both the N Line model and N model aim to give future Elantra owners more diverse options in choosing the right vehicle to match their lifestyle.

Compared to the exiting sixth generation model, the 2023 Elantra has an increased overall length, width, and height. This new Elantra reaches an overall length of 4,750mm, body width of 1,825mm, and body height of 1,435mm. Although the Elantra has increased in size, it still remains slightly smaller than the Hyundai Sonata. When referring to the dynamic character line, Hyundai took inspiration from the previous model and implemented it into the new Elantra model. This sporty character line helps reinforce the fact that the Elantra has a sportier look than its previous generations. The front end has a similar look to the existing models by using Hyundai's signature headlamp architecture, however, with a more slender and sporty look to it. Following in suit, the tail lamps also mimic a similar design to that of the existing model, just with more modern, taller, and thinner styling.

The Hyundai Elantra 2023 launches its highly anticipated seventh generation version, featuring a stylish four-door coupe-like design. Hyundai has continuously flourished the Elantra model by giving it a more modern and sleek look unlike previous generations. This model will be the first Elantra to have a hybrid as well as a dedicated performance model.

1.2. Overview of Hyundai Sonata 2023

The Sonata is a car designed for the future. It adopts Sensuous Sportiness design language that has diffused the entire chassis with proportional, smooth, and flowing surfaces. Compared to the previous model, Sonata has slightly increased in overall length, width, and wheelbase. The Hyundai Sonata also provides the distinct and sophisticated design of LED Daytime running lights. The lighting-timing algorithm of the DRL is impressive. The images are rendered in bright daylight but low power is consumed. When the car unlocks or approaches, the lights spread and invite drivers. This car adopts Hidden Lighting Lamps with the state-of-the-art technology which is only seen on high-end luxury cars. Iconic design for LED Combined headlamps provides a futuristic and high-tech image. And for the rear-end, Rear Combination Lamps connect the left and right lamp with a light bar. Coming to the interior, the Sonata is equipped with high-end technology. Digital Key becomes a new feature for smartphones by utilizing NFC (Near Field Communication). But what's interesting is the implementation of wireless Android Auto and Apple Carplay. These features allow the driver and passenger to link the application and the very same interface as their smartphone without literally connecting a USB cable. The implementation of Full Touch Screen Monitor and LCD Display instrument cluster provides the most convenient way to use infotainment and navigate car settings. To increase the driving comfort, the Sonata is also equipped with an Electronic Shift Button and Shift By Wire (SBW). The Electronic Shift Button placed at the dashboard provides a more spacious and clean-looking central console. SBW is a feature that provides the same sensation as having a conventional automatic lever, but it's more simplified and technologically advanced.

2. Design and Exterior Features

Elantra’s latest design evokes an emotional response with its sensuous sportiness, while creating a timeless appeal. In the sea of complex patterns, cluttered shapes, and busy designs of current cars, the clean lines and clear forms found throughout Elantra’s design are a breath of fresh air. This architectural approach begins with Hyundai’s signature parametric jewel pattern grille and expands throughout the entire vehicle with lines stretching to every corner. Converting the traditional chrome grille into a surface almost digital in its light reflection is a daring innovation for a production vehicle. Up to four hidden lighting elements are integrated into the front fascia. Elantra is the only car in its class to feature front light architecture with HLED daytime running lights that are unmistakably premium in both appearance and behavior. When the lights are off, the chrome trim merges with the grille in a feature aptly called "disappearance". In the side view, full volumes are expressed through a wedge shape and sensuous curves. Elantra’s roofline is four-door coupe-like, and it has an overall height that is 20mm lower and length that is 30mm longer than its predecessor. Elantra’s prowess in design continues into the rear, which is defined by two lines that connect and integrate the LED taillights, a segment first as these lines are illuminated, and the trunk that has an integrated spoiler. The body sides receive further character in the wheel wells with a new interpretation of the iconic Hyundai propeller shape. The new body in white improves contrast with components and allows the surfaces to truly connect, a change expertly translated by Hyundai’s color and trim team. This dynamic Tuscany Red two-tone color is set off by two different types of wheels. A 17-inch wheel design exclusive to the N Line is installed on vehicles in the Tuscany Red exterior color. This design is a reinterpretation of the luxury night's sky seen through the drumming of rain, accomplished by installing a two-layer graphic with hidden elements. The SE model can also be equipped with 16-inch wheels with a dynamic hub cap. Elantra offers ten different exterior colors in total with availability varying by region.

2.1. Styling and Body Design

Next, the type of car will also determine its appearance, as the Elantra is a 4-door compact sedan and the Sonata is a 4-door size larger. Styling and shaping of the car varies. Looking at the Hyundai Elantra, it gives off a modern and stylish appearance. Overall, it has smooth and sleek lines, curvy edges, and slightly roundish styling cues. The contours on the hood and swooping roofline make the car appear quite stylish. This is backed with clear headlamps and tail lamps giving an overall sharp and modern appearance. The base GL has black side moldings and door handles whereas the GLS and Limited are equipped with body-color side moldings and door handles giving the car a more streamlined appearance. Moreover, the Elantra has side repeater lights and heated side mirrors available for the GLS and Limited models. Step one model above, the Hyundai Sonata gives off a more sophisticated and luxurious aura. It has an elegant stance and conservative yet stylish lines and styling cues. The car has a very modern and clean appearance. Being the more expensive car, it has more standard features than the Elantra such as side repeater lights, heated side mirrors, solar control glass, and alloy wheels. This provides it more prestige and style compared to the Elantra. The appearance of the Elantra and Sonata both give off a modern freshness but the Sonata has the edge with its touch of elegance, more prestige, and style. Coming to dimensions and proportions, both cars are not too far off in size. The Elantra is a 4-door compact sedan while the Sonata is a 4-door size larger and therefore a mid-sized sedan. The Elantra has a 1,775 mm width, 1,430 mm height, 2,650 mm wheelbase, and a track of 1,546 mm. The size of the car is adequate for a compact sedan and the wheelbase provides a decent amount of cabin space. On the other hand, the Sonata has a 1,835 mm width, 1,471 mm height, 2,805 mm wheelbase, and a front/rear track of 1,595/1,590 mm. This is wider, longer, and taller than the Elantra at every angle and proportion. A longer wheelbase with wider proportions means better stability and cabin space, hence a larger-sized car. From just styling the car, the difference in size of the Elantra and Sonata is easily seen. However, both Hyundai Elantra and Sonata have nicely styled and shaped body designs. With the Elantra having a little more aggressive and sporty styling, and the Sonata with a more elegant and luxurious design. Both cars are designed respectable in terms of appearance and each specifically targets a different market.

2.2. Exterior Dimensions and Proportions

The Elantra and the Sonata share similar exterior looks that reflect their brands' sporty and premium characteristics, respectively. The Hyundai 2023 Elantra and Sonata iterations advanced the exterior design to a whole new level. Dimension-wise, the Elantra's size is similar to the previous generation Sonata, which is 30mm longer, 25mm wider, and 20mm lower than its predecessor, making the Elantra the new class leader in terms of its proportion. While the Sonata now sits on the new N3 platform, which is designed to have a longer size in order to differentiate it from the existing Hyundai SUV lineup. The Sonata is now 35mm longer, 35mm wider, and 30mm lower than its predecessor and comfortably edges out the Elantra in terms of exterior dimensions. Both cars have the same wheelbase length of 2750mm. These changes in size yield substantial headroom, shoulder, and legroom increases for both the Elantra and Sonata, while enhancing both trunks. The Elantra boasts a larger volume in its segment. The Elantra's new dimensions further the vehicle's eco vehicle qualifications, bestowing it with lower aerodynamic drag and improved fuel economy. While the recent changes to the Sonata's platform and original design concept have placed the vehicle between the mid to large vehicle segment in terms of size and features, which can be translated from the recent changes to the vehicle.

2.3. Lighting and Grille Design

The Elantra features a slimmer, wider grille design, providing a "clean look" compared to the Sonata's more modern, aggressive "parametric-jewel" grille. Elantra's energy efficient LED headlamp technology is a first for the small sedan segment and enables creative new shapes and designs. The angular headlamps on the Elantra contrast with the Sonata's more traditional round headlamps and the overall system on the Elantra consumes less power. Both vehicles will also feature LED tail-lights, again with differing designs to suit their target customers. The Sonata will feature an array of lighting technologies that are unprecedented in the mid-size sedan segment. The Jewel Type LED daytime running lights float beneath the chrome trim above the front grille to create a lightscape effect. From the rear, the Sonata's tail-lights also exude a high-tech image with a distinctive LED light guide design. A welcome lighting system activates the headlamps, LED daytime running lights, and the inside and outside door handles as the driver approaches the vehicle. Each of these lighting technologies will provide the Sonata with a premium look in the mid-size sedan segment.

3. Interior and Comfort

Cabin space and seating capacities are two quite necessary aspects when it comes to the interior of any vehicle, let alone models in the same segment by the same company. Hyundai tends to make both the Elantra and Sonata focused and equipped with a lot of space inside for the passengers and their belongings. Both the Elantra and Sonata offer a large amount of total interior space, starting with a maximum available of 40.6 inches of front headroom and 31.7 inches of rear legroom in the Elantra, and a larger 41.1 inches of headroom and 34.8 inches of legroom in the Sonata. These all ensure that all passengers will get a lot of room to move and do not feel cramped in either of the two models. Trunk spaces are large enough, with 14.2 ft3 in the Elantra and a capacious 16.0 ft3 in the Sonata. The Elantra has a 6-way manual driver seat and a 4-way manual front passenger seat with premium cloth seats, which provide quite a comfort for a budget-conscious compact segment. The Sonata now offers a more premium and expensive, yet comfortable option for every occupant, with 6-way power for the front and an 8-way power for the rear passenger seat in a leather seat surface. When considering climate comfort, both the Elantra and Sonata offer an available driver and passenger seat heating system. The only notable deficit is the absence of ventilated seats to cool off on hot days in the Elantra. In terms of audio entertainment, both the Elantra and Sonata have a 6-speaker audio system. The Elantra has a standard Bluetooth hands-free phone system, a standard iPod cable integration, and a standard MP3 auxiliary input and a USB port. The Sonata has an iPod cable integration and a USB port for iPod Auto enablement, with a Bluetooth hands-free phone system and audio streaming added in.

3.1. Cabin Space and Seating Capacity

Hyundai states that the new Elantra offers best-in-class front headroom for passengers, as well as greater overall passenger volume than the outgoing model. We expect this to translate into extra space for rear-seat passengers, although dimensions for back-seat space have not yet been released. The 2021 Elantra gave up nearly three inches of rear legroom and a half-inch of rear headroom relative to the 2020 model due to its swoopy new design, so we'll be looking for improvements in those areas. We already gave the new interior design high marks for style, functionality, and ergonomics. Available features include dual-zone climate control, heated and ventilated front seats, a power-adjustable driver's seat with memory, and a power sunroof. Full dimensions aren't yet available for the 2023 Elantra, so specifics are hard to come by. Hyundai says that rear legroom and headroom have both improved over the previous generation. This insight into the new Elantra N Line, which has already been rolled out—featuring a more powerful engine and sportier design—may help paint a clearer picture of the new Elantra's size and proportion. For N Line, Hyundai included an extra inch of front headroom and nearly two inches of front legroom compared to the standard Elantra, dimensions which should be identical for all versions of the 2023 model.

3.2. Interior Materials and Quality

During a comparison, it was stated that the Elantra had many plastic trims and a steering wheel which can definitely degrade the overall quality feel. If you're willing to splash out and pay for the top trim level of the Hyundai Elantra, you will benefit from leather seats and a sunroof, which may increase your satisfaction of interior quality. Now comparing this to the Hyundai Sonata, you do not need to pay extra for higher trim levels just to get better quality interior. Sonata is said to have a much more modern and high-quality interior design with minimal plastic trim and an overall cheap feel. This can be seen with the Sonata providing a leather steering wheel, gear shifter, and heated seats from the second lowest trim level. In conclusion, if you are looking for better overall quality of interior materials, the Hyundai Sonata is worth the extra spending. You will get it all even from the base model. This is not to say the Elantra has poor quality interior, but it may require higher spending to get the satisfaction you want.

When it comes to the quality of materials in a car, it is definitely a category in which you will notice a difference with your increased spend. Generally, the more money you spend, the higher quality overall of materials you will experience in your vehicle. Is this the case between the Elantra and Sonata? Both vehicles come with leather seats available on the top trim models. What is going to be the determining factor for the consumer is if there is a notable difference in the quality of materials in the base model Hyundai Elantra compared to a base model Hyundai Sonata.

3.3. Comfort and Convenience Features

Just like Elantra, Sonata's envelope is also replete with various other high-tech luxury features including an optional power sunroof, which comes with tilt and slide control, and panoramic sunroof which provides the rider with an open-air experience, all while consuming natural light, thereby maintaining a healthy connection with the great outdoors. All these features maintain a sense of remarkable comfort and convenience in both sedans. Now taking into context the seatings available in both Elantra and Sonata, the cabin space is quite bountiful. Elantra shines with an increased overall interior space of about 2.2 cubic feet. Sonata, on the other hand, is enviably spacious. The head and legroom in Sonata have increased significantly when compared to the previous models. This increase in interior space is very noticeable for rear seat passengers.

- Standard Proximity key with push-button start - Hands-free smart trunk release, released automatically when the key is sensed for a few seconds. - Auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink and compass - Tilt and telescopic steering wheel with optional heating function available on Elantra. - Automatic headlight control and combination of LED/DRL headlights with High Beam Assist.

Elantra and Sonata 2023 both are packed with a variety of extravagant comfort and convenience features which are mainly installed to provide relaxation to the rider. Both sedans come with adjustable driver seat which can be upgraded to power adjustable 8-way seat. Optional heated front and rear seats provide extra comfort to the life of the rider. Moreover, both sedans have dual-zone automatic climate control and rear seat vents to further improve cabin comfort and increase overall satisfaction. Also, to have a memorable driving experience, both sedans offer the following convenience features:

3.4. Infotainment and Connectivity Options

Both of the sedans arrive equipped with Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, however, they differ in terms of navigation systems. The Elantra requires a wired connection for Android Auto, which needs to be plugged into the USB Jack. The interior features are also similar between the two models. They both have six speakers and four tweeters. However, there are some differences in the touchscreen display. The Elantra SE and SEL come with a 7-inch color touchscreen display, which is an improvement from the previous version. The SEL also includes a trial period for Sirius XM. If you upgrade to the Elantra C or Elantra Limited, you will get an 8-inch color touchscreen display with additional cargo space for Sirius XM Radio. However, this option is only available if you are willing to pay for the upgraded version. The 15-inch navigation device provides access to the Hyundai Digital Key, which is exclusive to the Elantra. This feature allows you to lock and unlock your car and start the engine using your smartphone. The Digital Key can be used by multiple users, each with a unique user ID. It does not require a cellular data connection, but some features may depend on the mobile device and require a Bluetooth pairing with the digital car key. Both sedans come with a standard backup camera. However, access to navigation and the backup camera through a telematics device may require an additional subscription. Both models offer a three-month trial period for Hyundai Blue Link, which includes roadside assistance, maintenance alerts, and vehicle diagnostics. After the trial period, the Elantra offers six months of free service, while the Sonata offers three years of free service. Overall, both sedans have similar features, including wireless Android Auto and CarPlay, a trial period for Sirius XM Radio, and Blue Link capabilities.

4. Performance and Technology

Driving dynamics and handling. A vehicle's performance and handling are important to a lot of people when deciding which car to purchase. The Elantra and Sonata are both known for having a smooth ride and being easy to handle. But how do they compare to each other and how do they stack up against other cars in the same class?

The 2023 Hyundai Sonata offers a choice of two engines as well. The base model Sonata offers a 2.0L DOHC 16-valve I4 with 147 horsepower at 6,200 rpm. Torque is 132 lbs-ft at 4,500 rpm. This engine is also an option on the Elantra. The fuel economy with this engine for the Sonata is 24 mpg city / 35 mpg highway. Sonata also offers a 2.4L DOHC 16-valve I4 engine or a 3.3L DOHC 24-valve V6 engine. The 2.4L engine is available on all Sonata models. It offers 162 horsepower at 5,800 rpm and torque of 164 lbs-ft at 4,250 rpm. The fuel economy is 24 mpg city / 34 mpg highway for this engine. The Sonata with this engine comes standard with a 5-speed ZF automatic transmission. The 3.3L V6 is only available on the Sonata LX model. This engine offers a powerful 234 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and torque of 226 lbs-ft at 3,500 rpm. Fuel economy on this engine is 20 mpg city / 30 mpg highway. This engine is mated with a 5-speed A5HF1 automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC. All the engines on the Sonata come with Continuously Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) for better performance and fuel economy.

Engine options and powertrain The 2023 Hyundai Elantra offers two engine choices for the buyer. The SE and SEL models are equipped with a 2.0L DOHC 16-valve I4 with 147 horsepower at 6,200 rpm. Torque is 132 lbs-ft at 4,500 rpm. This is the same engine offered on the base model Hyundai Sonata. The fuel economy with this engine for the Elantra is 24 mpg city / 34 mpg highway. For those looking for better performance, the Elantra offers the GT model with a 2.0L DOHC 16-valve I4 with CVVT engine. This engine offers 138 horsepower at 6,000 rpm. Torque is 136 lbs-ft at 4,600 rpm. The fuel economy on this engine is 27 mpg city / 33 mpg highway. All three of the engines offered on the Elantra are mated with a 4-speed ZF automatic transmission.

4.1. Engine Options and Powertrain

The Elantra GT N Line looks the part with N Line design elements and a variety of exterior and interior features. From a performance standpoint, the Elantra GT N Line offers sporty driving dynamics with exclusive standard multi-link rear suspension, larger front and rear brake rotors, 18-inch alloy wheels, and 225/40 R18 summer tires. The Elantra GT N Line delivers a dynamic and directly connected driving experience to satisfy both the daily driver and those looking for a bit of fun on the weekends.

The 2023 Elantra GT will be available with an all-new N Line version. The Elantra GT N Line is the first Elantra GT to be outfitted with a 1.6 Turbo GDI engine.

The Elantra is the only car in the segment to offer a 1.6 Diesel engine, providing fuel economy and durability. The Elantra's 1.6 engine is projected to deliver a class-leading fuel economy rating and a UL-level emissions certification. This engine is available with a 7-speed DCT or 6-speed automatic transmission.

The Elantra's 1.6 Turbo GDI engine will be available with a 7-speed DCT. The Elantra's 1.6 Turbo is projected to deliver a best-in-class 201 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 195 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,500-4,500 rpm. The Elantra's 1.6 Turbo is in a unique position as there are no non-luxury sedan competitors offering a more powerful engine.

The 2023 Elantra will be offered with 2.0 GDI, 1.6 Turbo GDI, and 1.6 Diesel. The standard engine is a 2.0-liter MPI Atkinson Cycle inline four-cylinder engine. This engine takes the Elantra from 0-60 mph in 8.3 seconds. The Elantra's 2.0 GDI is projected to deliver a peak output of 147 (estimated) at 6,200 rpm and 132 lb.-ft. of torque (estimated) at 4,500 rpm. This engine will be offered with a choice of a new IVT or 6-speed automatic transmission.

4.2. Driving Dynamics and Handling

Hyundai has equipped the Elantra with a Drive Mode Select feature, which allows the driver to select from different powertrain and steering settings to best suit their current driving conditions. This technology is generally limited to higher-end models and luxury vehicles, so it's interesting to see it integrated into the Elantra, albeit the higher-end models. The drive mode can be activated by a push of the button and has three selectable modes: Eco, Normal, and Sport. The selected mode will be displayed in the gauge cluster and is changeable on the fly. Changing the mode to either Sport or Eco will affect the throttle and shifting mapping to allow the driver to customize their vehicle for better fuel economy or more responsive driving. In the case of sport mode for the Elantra Sport or Elantra GT, the increased steering effort is also noticeable. This is definitely a cool feature, but you have to wonder if it's something that most drivers will actually use. As for the Sonata, Hyundai has equipped it with the Shiftronic feature that provides a manual gear-shifting mode for more control over the automatic transmission. This feature is definitely a blast from the past for automatic transmission vehicles, but there are still many drivers out there who yearn for an automatic transmission vehicle that offers more control.

Both the Elantra and Sonata have a very similar power-to-weight ratio, but if wheel horsepower is taken into consideration, the Elantra has a 5.7kg/hp (11.8lb/hp) ratio and the Sonata has a 6.1kg/hp (12.5lb/hp) ratio. Of course, these ratings depend on which model is purchased, but regardless, the Elantra has a slight advantage. However, both vehicles are closely matched and well suited for the vehicles' intended application, which is likely to be fuel-efficient commuting with some sporty driving. That said, the Elantra, being slightly lighter and smaller, has a "sportier" feel to its drive and has a few hidden surprises to its handling and drivability. Let's not forget the Elantra Sport model with its independent rear suspension and different steering characteristics compared to the base Elantra models. The Sonata, however, has shown a significant evolution in its platform and has a more solid and refined drive compared to its older generations. This is achieved by its improved chassis and suspension design, resulting in a stiffer body and more precise steering. Both vehicles have a very attractive value in terms of driveability and can surprisingly hold their own in terms of handling in the current market. A big plus for Hyundai is that they are constantly making refinements in these areas.

4.3. Advanced Safety and Driver-Assistance Systems

Comparing such similar vehicles can prove to be difficult, but it is always good to see the features that are offered in the higher model vehicle in comparison to the lower model. Specifically, in regards to safety and driver assist features, the Sonata offers more features standard and available than the Elantra, providing increased safety for driver and passengers.

Sonata: The SmartSense system is also standard on every Sonata model. The system uses the same radars, cameras, and ultrasonic sensors to continuously monitor the driving environment and assist the driver. The Sonata comes with some additional features that are not found on the Elantra. These include automatic high beam assist, remote smart parking assist, highway drive assist, and standard rear parking sensors. The Sonata provides optional parking collision-avoidance assist and safe exit warning. The Sonata has a greater range of available features, implementing some advanced technology to further assist the driver and reduce workload in certain driving situations the Elantra does not offer. Although both vehicles come with standard safety and driver assist features, the Sonata offers greater features both standard and available to help driver and passenger safety.

Elantra: Hyundai SmartSense is standard on every Elantra model. Hyundai SmartSense comes with numerous safety and driver assist features to help monitor the vehicle's surroundings and warn you of potential risks while driving or parking. The SmartSense system uses an array of radars, cameras, and ultrasonic sensors to not only protect you and your passengers but also the pedestrians around you. Some fancy driver assist features found on the Elantra are forward collision-avoidance Assist with pedestrian detection, smart cruise control, lane keeping assist, and driver attention warning just to name a few.
