What's New For the 2020 Hyundai Elantra?

The 2020 Hyundai Elantra now features an Intelligent Variable Transmission, which is similar to a continuously variable automatic transmission(CVT), except it shifts similarly to a traditional automatic transmission. The new transmission improves overall efficiency and fuel economy. The manual gearbox will be discontinued. The new Elantra also makes more safety features standard for all trim levels. There are also more optional safety aids that are available across the lineup. Other standard upgrades include a dual-zone automatic climate control system and a 3.5-inch display that is integrated into the instrument cluster.
