Seems we are on for a special treat with this 2020 Hyundai Elantra when it comes to the introduction of CVT and improved fuel economy. Click here for full info!

Hyundai is really wetting our appetites with this 2020 Hyundai Elantra. If you are yet to make up your mind on what car to go for next, you might as well take a look at this latest addition from Hyundai in its latest car.

Since Hyundai and Kia are both automakers from South Korea, they seem to share a lot in common especially when it comes to powertrains. However, it seemed quite an unusual split when the Kia Forte got a CVT while Hyundai Elantra was still sticking to its conventional torque converter automatics and two-clutch transmissions. The exciting news is, Hyundai is bringing a massive change.

A look at the EPA fuel economy website, showing the latest Hyundai Elantra getting a CVT in its newly manufactured car. We feel this might be from Kia Forte. This is a very remarkable welcomed development towards guaranteeing improved fuel economy.


If you think the previous version of Hyundai Elantra is good enough. This will make you think again!

As we speak, there are just numbers for the Hyundai Elantras, which come with a naturally aspirated inline-four (2.0 liter). The 2020 model will likely have the capacity to generate 147 horse power and 132 pound feet of torque. There is also a possibility in other trims such as Sport version to come with inline-four (1.6 liter) super-charged engine. We may have to wait for that of GT hatchback as its line will be listed later.

When it comes to 2020 Hyundai Elantra fuel economy, there are some exciting features to watch out for.


The 2020 Hyundai Elantra got a boost in its fuel efficiency

The very first thing you should know is, the Elantra Sport Edition (SE) is now as effective as the 2019 version of Elantra Eco. The Elantra Eco is known for its possession of a peculiar turbo-charged (1.4 liter) engine coupled with a 2-clutch seven-speed transmission. In comparison with the 2020 Hyundai SE, the 2019 Eco promises additional one mpg when used within the city. But it suffers one less when you drive it on the freeway. When you combine these factors, you discover that the fuel economy in the two variants is very much the same.

This similarity is giving us concern if we will have the 2020 version of Hyundai Eco. The only thing that seems like a way out especially for Eco lovers is that if the company decides to add CVT to the already existing 1.4 liter engine, it will boost the fuel efficiency with Eco and make it outwit the 2020 Hyundai SE.


Here comes the interior of a 2020 Hyundai Elantra GT version!

Another fascinating thing about these new Elantra trims is the similarity in fuel efficiency to the Kia Forte that is already installed with CVT. This development has given us every reason to believe that there powertrains will likely be the same.

If you are thinking that the 2020 Hyundai Elantra only got an update or upgrade in the CVT and fuel efficiency, the answer is No! the redesigned 2020 Hyundai Elantra also received a significant boost in its interior such as a newer instrument panel, gauge cluster, air vents, center slack and lots more improvements.

We are still very much waiting for the price of the new Elantra. We were made to understand here on Naijauto that the company is yet to announce officially the availability and price of these trims. But we are very much positive that they will be announced later in the year alongside some other models.

If there is one thing a typical Nigerian car owner does not joke with is fuel economy. This car will very much become one of the most after fuel economy cars when it hits the markets. Presently, there are many Hyundai Elantra on roads across the federation. This new one indeed promises better driving experiences for Hyundai lovers.
