Unlike a few competitors, Hyundai has not gone to LED headlights with the Elantra. With the Ultimate option package, however, these dynamically point into corners.

The Ultimate package also adds driver assistance features, such as adaptive cruise control, which maintains a set distance from traffic ahead.

A blind-spot monitor system, standard on the Limited trim, lets you know when cars and cyclists are in the lanes next to you.
