After a mid-cycle refresh for 2014, the 2015 Hyundai Elantra has a few more updates including some equipment reshuffling and new exterior colors. Along with this, the Elantra’s price goes up by $50 for a new base price of $18,060.
That price is for the base 2015 Hyundai Elantra SE with the standard six-speed manual; opting for the six-speed automatic transmission is an extra $1000. The SE comes with plenty of standard equipment including alloy wheels, a USB port, satellite radio, cruise control, and keyless entry. Two packages are available on the automatic-transmission SE: the $900 Popular Equipment Package with larger wheels, foglights, a touchscreen audio display, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, and automatic headlights; and a new, $750 SE Style Package that adds a sunroof, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, LED-accented projector headlights, and some chrome and aluminum trim.
Next up is the 2015 Hyundai Elantra Sport, which was a new addition to the lineup for 2014 and is powered by a larger 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (compared with the 1.8-liter four in other Elantra models). For 2015, the Elantra Sport starts at $22,410 with the standard six-speed manual, with the automatic transmission again adds $1000. Compared with the Elantra SE, the Sport model adds larger alloy wheels, a sport-tuned suspension, pushbutton start, a power driver’s seat, leather seats, LED taillights, a black chrome grille, and a sunroof. New for 2015 is a $1200 Sport Tech Package available on Sport models with the automatic transmission that adds navigation, a premium audio system, and Hyundai’s BlueLink telematics system.
The top-of-the-line 2015 Hyundai Elantra Limited costs $22,510—that’s less than the automatic Sport model because the Limited has the smaller 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine. The Limited has standard leather seats that are heated front and rear, chrome trim on the outside, LED taillights, a power driver’s seat, and 17-inch alloy wheels. The previously available Limited Tech Package becomes the Ultimate Package ($2400) and costs $350 less than before despite offering the same equipment including navigation, premium audio, sunroof, automatic climate control, and pushbutton start. All in, a fully-loaded 2015 Hyundai Elantra Limited costs $24,910.
The 2015 Hyundai Elantra SE and Limited versions also gain new colors including Quartz White Pearl, Symphony Silver, lakeside Blue, and Shale Gray Metallic, while the Sport model has a new Monaco White hue.
