When it comes to the Hyundai Elantra, a compact car with a sporty flair, you can expect a smart array of features and a confident performance on the road. However, before deciding on your next vehicle, it’s essential to understand the distinctions between the 2022 and 2023 model years.


The top-tier Elantra N trim is the most notable difference between the 2022 and 2023 versions. Starting in 2023, the N trim is the only option that offers a manual transmission. Aside from this change, the performance capabilities and equipment of the Elantra remain unchanged. The base trim features a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder, 147-horsepower engine with a CVT. The Elantra Hybrid Blue pairs a six-speed automatic transmission with a hybrid 139-horsepower unit. The N Line, available for both years, comes with a seven-speed automatic, dual-clutch transmission and a turbocharged 1.6-liter, 201-horsepower gas engine. For the top N trim, you can choose between a manual transmission and a dual-clutch, eight-speed automatic transmission. Its turbocharged 2.0-liter gas engine delivers 276 horsepower.


There are no differences in exterior design between the 2022 and 2023 Elantra models. The modern Elantra showcases a sleek profile with a tapered hood, curved roof, and stylish geometric accents on the doors. The front grille seamlessly extends into the bumper, complemented by prominent air intakes and sharp LED headlights. Some Elantra trims for both years offer performance tires, up to 19-inch wheels, heated side mirrors, and LED rear lighting.


The 2023 Elantra’s trim lineup has undergone some adjustments, including removing the SEL Premium package. However, the cabin and safety features remain the same across the remaining trims in the 2022 and 2023 models. The entry-level SE trim includes the following:

  • Blind-spot collision mitigation
  • An 8-inch central display screen
  • Two USB ports
  • Cloth seating
  • Forward collision mitigation
  • Wireless connectivity for smart devices

Higher trims offer additional features such as leather upholstery, a wireless charging pad, heated front seats, adaptive cruise control, a 10.25-inch digital instrumentation screen, a premium sound system, a push-button engine starter, and a dual-zone automatic climate control system.
