2024 Hyundai Elantra Sedan's Handsome Facelift Shown in U.S. Spec


Share post:

  • After revealing the updated Elantra for the Korean market back in February, Hyundai has revealed the U.S. spec car.
  • The updated Elantra features new front fenders, revised headlights, a slimmer front grille, and new wheel designs.
  • The interior has been updated as well, with new door panels, new interior color options, and additional USB-C charging outlets.

UPDATE: 8/30/23: After revealing the facelift for the Korea market 2024 Hyundai Elantra back in February, Hyundai has released new photos for the U.S. spec car. Changes mirror those seen on the Korea market vehicle in February, with new front fenders, revised, slimmer headlights, and a narrower front grille. Hyundai also confirmed new 15, 16, 17, and 18-inch alloy wheel designs, along with four new exterior paint options.

The current-generation Hyundai Elantra’s angular design garnered attention when it first arrived for 2021, but it’s apparently time for a visual freshening already. Hyundai unveiled an updated version of the Korea-market Avante sedan, and we think this closely previews the 2024 Elantra that should reach the U.S. market later this year.

With revised headlights, a slimmer front grille, and new wheel designs, the facelifted Elantra looks more attractive to our eye. Around back, the taillights look slightly different as well, and the rear bumper design is more aggressive. We can’t spot any obvious changes inside, but the Elantra may get infotainment upgrades and new standard features.


2024 hyundai elantra n line


We don’t expect Hyundai to change the Elantra’s powertrains much for 2024, as the current 2.0-liter inline-four, hybrid, and turbocharged 1.6-liter inline-four engine options should stick around. The high-performance Elantra N, with its powerful 286-hp 2.0-liter turbo-four, is likely to get similar styling changes for 2024 but it may arrive a few months after the standard car. The Elantra N is also the only version that offers a manual transmission, as the lesser N Line version with its 1.6T engine dropped its six-speed manual option after the 2022 model year.

Look for more information to come on the 2024 Elantra as Hyundai prepares to reveal the U.S. version of the car within the coming months. We expect it to go on sale on our shores later this year.

Despite being raised on a steady diet of base-model Hondas and Toyotas—or perhaps because of it—Joey Capparella nonetheless cultivated an obsession for the automotive industry throughout his childhood in Nashville, Tennessee. He found a way to write about cars for the school newspaper during his college years at Rice University, which eventually led him to move to Ann Arbor, Michigan, for his first professional auto-writing gig at Automobile Magazine. He has been part of the Car and Driver team since 2016 and now lives in New York City.
