2022 Hyundai Elantra Price, Review, Ratings and Pictures

Updated on: December 21, 2021


Redesigned in the 2021 model year itself, the 2022 Hyundai Elantra will be a carry-over model. The 3-trim level configurations of SE, SEL, and Limited will remain as it is, starting at a base price of $19,850. Its 147 hp 2.0L I-4 engine with the standard FWD will also continue to retain its presence that is capable of returning an impressive mileage of 37 MPG overall. However, the newer 2022 Elantra N Line has been added to the lineup as well at an MSRP of $24,250 for enhanced 201 hp performance dynamics. 



The Hyundai Elantra will be available with a cargo capacity of 14.2 cu-ft at max alongside a spacious interior. And Hyundai is offering to lease this 5-seater sedan at $249/month for 36 months with a $0 signing payment. The 2022 Elantra can also be opted for its Hybrid variant that returns a whooping mileage of up to 53 MPG. Regarding its rivals, Honda Civic, Kia Forte, and Toyota Corolla are a few of the names that are as worthy as Elantra in this segment.

The 2022 Hyundai Elantra is one of the most impressive small sedans money can buy - Autotrader

The 2022 Hyundai Elantra is coming with no changes from the 2021 model year. Its 37 MPG fuel mileage by the 147 hp 2.0L I-4 is pretty economical but that comes at the cost of a sluggish 0-60 MPH acceleration. The production belt will be resuming with the same SE trim at $19,850 that can be as expensive as $25,600 for the Limited configuration exclusive of the destination fee. However, it is the J.D.Power rating of 80 that stays consistent across the trim level and establishes its reliable persona. 

The Hyundai Elantra tends to have a resale value of $11,931 for the SE trim and $15,460 for the Limited trim after 5 years of ownership. The maintenance cost of this sedan estimates to be $2,367 while the repairing might charge nearly $600 for the same time period. As far as its insurance expense is concerned, the calculations can be as high as $1,648 yearly. Since it has got a decent fuel economy, the fuel expense is limited to $6,000 only. On the whole, the total cost to own the 2022 Elantra comes out to be $25,244 at the least.

2022 Hyundai Elantra Buying Advice

Therefore, the expense of $24,100 at max for SEL configuration will allow one to experience the ambiance and appeal of the more expensive Limited trim.

8.0/10

"Ride quality and handling are good, and the base 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is refined." - cars.com

The 2022 Hyundai Elantra has a 2.0L I-4 engine that can thrust 147 hp and 132 lb-ft of torque. It comes hitched with an Intelligent Variable Transmission in an FWD layout. However, the Elantra N Line has been armed with a 201 hp 1.6L turbo I-4 engine for better acceleration prowess.

The Hyundai Elantra gets a Drive Mode Select in which one can switch among Sport, Normal, and Smart modes that change the steering response and throttle input altogether. And it is complemented by a pair of multi-link rear suspensions that maintain the wheel alignment while passing through undulations.

The 2022 Elantra hits the 0-60 MPH mark in 8.1 seconds and quarter-mile ticks 16.3 seconds with a top speed of 124 MPH. Apart from these, it has been equipped with 11-inch vented front and 10.3-inch rear disc brakes that bring it to a halt from 70 MPH within a braking distance of 175 ft.

2022 Hyundai Elantra Interior

8.0/10

The Elantra cabin is well-thought-out, with plenty of space and good outward visibility in the front row - Edmunds

The 2022 Hyundai Elantra has been organized to have a spacious practical interior with 3 color contrasts namely Black, Gray, and Melange with Gray as per trims. The SE and SEL configurations get no more than Cloth Seating while the Limited upgrades to Leather-upholstery. The Limited trim also receives heated front seats, black headliner, and alloy sport pedal exclusively for enhanced appeal. 

The Hyundai Elantra gets a tilt/telescopic steering wheel as standard but dual-zone automatic climate control is integrated from SEL onwards. Regarding its cargo capacity, it has a trunk volume of 14.2 cu-ft that seems relatively decent. Also, one can even opt for the Convenience Package at $900 in SEL trim only where leather-trimmed steering and heated front seats are added for improving the overall stance.

One can also avail of this Bose 8-Speaker Bose Premium Audio in SEL configuration with the Premium Package costing $2,100 extra.

2022 Hyundai Elantra Exterior

8.0/10

"Despite these small gaffes, the Elantra represents a solid step forward." - Motor Trend

The 2022 Hyundai Elantra was resculpted in the 2021 model year, meaning it will be retaining the silhouette this year as well. It breezes its road presence with 7 exterior color options out of which the shade of orange comes specifically for the Limited trim. Also, the wide front sports the charm of sleek DRL LEDs along with Automatic Headlight Control and HighBeam Assist. 

The Hyundai Elantra features the 15-inch alloy wheels for the SE trim which increases to 16-inch and 18-inch for the SEL and Limited respectively. On top of that, the Limited configuration does include the power sunroof and Full LED tail lights as standards too. But to opt for these in SEL, one has to choose Premium Package alongside.

As per data, the Elantra has a 1-inch longer wheelbase than both Kia Forte and Toyota Corolla but that hardly makes an impact on the handling. However, the 200 lbs heavier curb weight of Corolla than 2022 Elantra does allow the latter to have a comparatively smaller forward pull while braking. Otherwise, all the rivals are equally desirable in this parameter.

2022 Hyundai Elantra Competition

8.0/10

2022 Hyundai Elantra vs 2022 Honda Civic

The 2022 Honda Civic comes with more power and better performance, and even offers more cargo space than the 2022 Hyundai Elantra. However, the Hyundai Elantra has better interior space than the Civic and offers the best fuel economy figures among the competition, even with the higher trims.

2022 Hyundai Elantra vs 2022 Kia Forte

The 2022 Kia Forte comes with the same amount of power and offers parallel performance against the 2022 Hyundai Elantra. But the Forte is more practical with its better driving range, thanks to its larger fuel tank. The Elantra maintains the ground with better MPG figures and a spacious cabin, however, costs $500 extra. On the whole, it has to be 2022 Elantra for its overall approach and latest updates. 

2022 Hyundai Elantra vs 2022 Toyota Corolla

The 2022 Toyota Corolla offers a smaller engine than the 2022 Hyundai Elantra which does make lesser power. It even offers lesser fuel economy but a similar range due to a larger fuel tank.
