Standard Elantra sedans use a new Intelligent Variable Transmission while the Hybrid uses a six-speed dual-clutch transmission.
Vehicles also include a significant number of standard safety features and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Inside the car is a 10.25-inch information-display cluster and a 10.25-inch infotainment system. The cars also have 64 color mood lighting and more. Vehicles will be available in Q4 2020 at an undisclosed price.
