TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2021 Hyundai Elantra

2021 Hyundai Elantra Seat Room and Comfort: Pros
YearComment
2021 Though adjustments to their shape are limited to power lumbar, the new Hyundai Elantra's well-bolstered front seats fit me especially well. Your size and shape likely differ from mine, so impressions of seat comfort will vary. Whether they fit or not, in the Elantra Limited (unlike in the Forte) they are upholstered in real leather and would not appear out of place in an Audi. see full Hyundai Elantra review
2021 Hyundai Elantra Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearComment
Rear seat passengers enjoy abundant knee room, but those of more than middling height will find headroom and thigh support marginal at best. These weaknesses are fairly common in current compact sedans, but the Forte, with a taller, less swoopy roof line, has a more comfortably positioned rear seat and a bit more rear headroom. see full Hyundai Elantra review
