The 2022 Hyundai Elantra is a compact sedan with a trio of engines that range from sensible to high power. The base engine is a 147-hp 2L four-cylinder (SE, SEL, and Limited) with a continuously variable automatic transmission ideal for around-town driving and commuting. Opting for the N Line unlocks a 201-hp 1.6L turbocharged four-cylinder and a sporty exhaust note with a six-speed manual transmission with swift shifts (a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is optional). Rounding out the engines is the 2022 Elantra N's 2.0L turbo four-cylinder, which dominates with 276 hp and is available with a six-speed manual or an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

2. Great gas mileage

If you're shopping for a small sedan with high fuel economy, the 2022 Hyundai Elantra is one to consider. Base SE models with the 2L four-cylinder and continuously variable automatic transmission return an EPA-estimated 37 mpg combined.

 The same engine and transmission in the SEL and Limited trims deliver similar fuel economy with an EPA-estimated 35 mpg combined.
 Looking to bridge on-road performance with fewer stops at the pumps? The 2022 Elantra N Line's 1.6L turbocharged four-cylinder and optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission impress with an EPA-estimated 31 mpg combined.
