The 2021 Hyundai Elantra Takes Top Spot as the North American Car of the Year

February 24 2021

We at Thornhill Hyundai are pleased to announce that the 2021 Hyundai Elantra has been awarded the honor of North American Car of the Year! While the past year has undoubtedly been a difficult one, it has not stopped the innovative automakers at Hyundai from producing one of our best Elantra models to date. The all-new 2021 Elantra brings together leading-edge technology and intuitive safety features to help keep you connected and protected.

The Technology

Technology features available in the all-new 2021 Elantra are nothing short of impressive. An 8.0" touch-screen equipped with wireless Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone connectivity and a Bluetooth® hands-free phone system comes standard in every Elantra. Other features also available in select trim levels include proximity keyless entry with remote start, hands-free smart trunk, and a built-in wireless smartphone charging pad. Also new to Hyundai is the Bluelink® connected vehicle system. The Bluelink® connected vehicle system is available throughout our vehicle lineup. The advanced system conveniently keeps you connected with your Hyundai via the smartphone app, and offers a variety of services at the press of a button, such as find my car, real-time diagnostics, and roadside assistance.

The Safety

Safety comes standard in all Hyundai vehicles. The 2021 Elantra utilizes Hyundai’s groundbreaking SUPERSTRUCTURE™, a state-of-the-art platform built with our very own Advanced High-Strength Steel to deliver exceptional stiffness and strength. This protects the occupants of the vehicle by absorbing harmful energy and redirecting it away from the passenger in the event of an accident. In addition, the all-new 2021 Elantra is available with Hyundai SmartSense™ safety features. Equipped with a range of cameras, sensors, and motion detectors that allow for innovative safety features like Forward-Collision Avoidance, Highway Driving Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Blind-Spot Detection. 

The Performance & Look

The all-new Elantra is the perfect vehicle for all drivers; new, experienced, commute, or short-distance. Powered by a Smartstream 2.0L engine delivering 147 horsepower using a standard 6-speed manual transmission, the 2021 Hyundai Elantra will get you where you need to go in style. Sleek, modern, and available in 8 of Hyundai’s signature colours, we cannot say we are surprised the 2021 Elantra is the North American Car of the Year.
