The 2021 Hyundai Elantra Gets the Recognition It Deserves

The 2021 model year has proven to be quite a monumental one for the Hyundai Elantra.  While the Elantra has been a stalwart in the Hyundai lineup for a long time now, this was a year that was going to be marked by big changes for this vehicle.  This Hyundai sedan underwent a redesign to keep it fresh and competitive in the ever-changing sedan segment.  When the 2021 incarnation of the Elantra made it to our lot, our dealership saw that it was worth the wait.  Customers who have come to Hyundai of Newport, located at 1133 W Main Road in Middletown, RI, have raved about everything this all-new Hyundai vehicle has to offer.  Apparently, the world has agreed.  Recently, it was announced that the 2021 Hyundai Elantra won the coveted 2021 North American Car of the Year Award.

What is the North American Car of the Year Award

For the last 28 years, the North American Car, Utility, and Truck of the Year (NACTOY) automotive media jury has gathered to vote on the true standouts of the model year.  Their mission is to reward the best-of-the-best in each segment.  The jurists decide the winner based on a vehicle's excellence in segment leadership, innovation, design, safety, handling, driver satisfaction and value for the dollar.  This year, the car category was won by the 2021 Hyundai Elantra.  It is the second time that the Elantra has nabbed top honors in the competition, with the first time being in 1994.  In the finals of the category, the Elantra beat out the Nissan Sentra and the Genesis G80.

Many consider the NACTOY Awards to be especially prestigious because they are not influenced or associated with a single publication, website, radio, or television station.  Because of this fact, the jurors are considered independent and able to vote for the vehicle they truly see as the best.
