Not every facelift is successful; One winner is definitely the 2019 Hyundai Elantra. Its bold, sharp headlights dig deep into its grille for a look that stands out among compact sedans. Sport trims feature standard LED running lights that, when off, appear as a mirrored surface. The lights themselves cut well into a grille that’s pleasantly light on chrome. More curvature to the Elantra’s hood than most compact cars gives it an Audi-like muscularity. From the side, the beltline that whips up into the rearmost roof pillar doesn’t work quite as well. New headlight designs this year have changed the Elantra’s rating to Top Safety Pick.
