Safety Ratings

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the 2021 Hyundai Elantra a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating and a 5-Star Safety Rating for side crash and rollover tests. This is largely due to the Elantra’s outward visibility, standard safety equipment, like airbags, and a long list of advanced safety features.

Airbags and Other Safety Measures

The Elantra contains advanced dual front airbags, driver and front-passenger side-impact airbags, and side-curtain airbags for front and rear passengers. Front and rear crumple zones, which can protect passengers from more significant injuries, will collapse when impacted.

You’ll be tucked in and secure with adjustable front seatbelt anchors and front seatbelt pretensioners. The Elantra includes child safety locks in the back with the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Upper Tether Anchors) system to ensure a car seat stays stable.

Exterior Lighting

Outside, the Hyundai Elantra provides lights to lead the way even in the darkest corners. During the day, the standard LED Daytime Running Lights note that you’re on your way. In the back, you can add available LED taillights, too.

With standard High Beam Assist, your high beams stay lit when you need them and dim when you don’t. This helps when you’re on a dark road and another car approaches you. Instead of blinding the other driver with the glare of your lights, the lights dim to reduce the brightness of the high beams.

Driver Attention Warning and Safe Exit Warning

The Hyundai Elantra includes two innovative features as standard equipment. The Driver Attention Warning system is designed to prevent you from falling asleep at the wheel. It monitors your alertness according to baseline parameters, and if it detects fatigue, sends a warning to take a break.

A Safe Exit Warning and Rear Occupant Alert is another impressive feature that’s helpful for families. The system uses sensors to detect if vehicles are approaching from behind or to the side. If it detects an oncoming vehicle, it sends a warning before you can activate the electronic child safety lock. This is also helpful for rear-seat passengers getting out of the vehicle.

Rear Occupant Alert uses ultrasonic sensors, so you’ll know if your child remains in the car. This is invaluable for keeping track of your most precious cargo.

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist and Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist Systems

The standard Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection system is a helpful feature for preventing frontal collisions. If the system detects a possible crash, it sends an alert and can apply the brakes to lessen the impact or avoid the collision completely.

Add available Cyclist and Junction-Turning Detection to the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist for extra functionality. Not only will you know when a pedestrian may be headed your way, but you’ll also be aware when a cyclist is in your path. Plus, you can receive these warnings while making turns.

Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist is also standard, and it alerts you to vehicles or pedestrians in your blind spot. It can monitor two lanes over for even more visibility. This system works with Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist and sends warnings if there’s a vehicle in your path when changing lanes or reversing.

Lane Assistance

Making the most of your driving means changing lanes, but you want to do so in the safest way possible. That’s where the standard Lane Keeping Assist and Lane Following Assist system takes over.

The first device detects where lanes end and begin, so when you veer out of them, you’re alerted. It can also gently steer you back if necessary. The second system gives you steering assistance so you can maintain your position in the lane. Drifting out of the lane can happen to any driver for a range of reasons, so it helps to receive those nudges.

Stability and Traction

To stay steady on the road, the Hyundai Elantra provides you with multiple systems that give you stability and traction. Standard Vehicle Stability Management and Electronic Stability Control can keep your car on track and prevent spinning out or not moving quickly enough when you accelerate.

The standard Traction Control System maintains your grip on the road and works in tandem with the Drive Mode Select. Drive Mode Select features Normal, Smart, and Sport modes, so you can use one of these depending on the conditions you face.

Optional Parking and Highway Features

A rearview camera with dynamic parking guidelines is standard on the Elantra, but several features are available to improve parking convenience in crowded lots. You can add available Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist – Reverse, which can alert you if you’re too close to another vehicle or obstacle in the rear.

There’s also an available Park Distance Warning. It’s a feature that alerts you if you’re too close to surrounding vehicles.

Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go is also optional. It expands conventional cruise control by adjusting your traveling speed to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead.

This system is enhanced by the available Highway Driving Assist, a feature that integrates the smart cruise control to assist the driver with steering and staying with the flow of traffic.
