2023 Hyundai Elantra for Sale in Fairfield, CT
Trims and Powertrain
For 2023, the front-wheel-drive Elantra comes in three trims: SE, SEL, and Limited. A 147-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine sits under the hood and teams with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The EPA-estimated fuel economy is 33 mpg around town and 42 mpg on the highway; this changes to 30 city/40 highway for the SEL and Limited.
Starting off the Elantra lineup, the SE gets single-zone air conditioning, automatic headlights, LED daytime running lights, power side mirrors, fabric upholstery, remote keyless entry, a 4.2-inch color gauge cluster, a tilt/telescopic steering column, solar glass, and 15-inch alloy wheels. The SEL is upgraded with dual-zone automatic climate control, proximity keyless entry with push-button start, a hands-free trunk release, and 16-inch alloy wheels. The optional SEL Convenience Package will add heated front seats and side mirrors, a power driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, wireless device charging, the Hyundai Digital Key (for keyless entry and starting via smartphone app), an electronic parking brake, 17-inch alloy wheels, and additional safety and infotainment technology (which we’ll detail below). At the top of the Elantra range is the Limited. It includes everything from the SEL with the Convenience Package plus leather upholstery, a 60/40-split folding rear seat, LED exterior lighting, unique exterior accents, heated power side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, and customizable ambient cabin lighting.
Advanced Driver Safety Systems
While many of today’s affordable vehicles have advanced safety technology as standard equipment, the Elantra includes next-level safety systems such as blind-spot collision avoidance assist and rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist. Both of those generally cost extra or aren’t available on many other compact sedans. The other standard safety features are forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, lane keeping assist, lane following assist, driver attention warning, high beam assist, and safe exit warning.
The SEL with the Convenience Package and the Limited also get adaptive cruise control and upgraded forward collision mitigation with pedestrian, cyclist, and junction-turning detection. Rear parking sensors, reverse parking collision-avoidance assist, and highway drive assist are only installed on the Limited.
Infotainment and Connectivity
An 8-inch touchscreen is the infotainment epicenter for the SE and SEL, while the SEL with the Convenience Package and the Limited have a 10.25-inch display with navigation. Other standard features include wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay (the larger touchscreen system switches to traditional plug-in smartphone integration), Bluetooth connectivity, and dual USB ports. An eight-speaker Bose audio system is exclusive to the Limited, while the SE versions get a four-speaker arrangement (six speakers with SEL). SiriusXM satellite radio and access to Bluelink connected services are standard with the SEL and Limited.
