As an underdog in its class, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra stepped up the plate with an impressive amount of style, tech, and luxury. Back with a new look, the 2017 Elantra has a longer body with an aggressive front end and sporty contour. The 2017 Elantra is rich in features and offers a surprisingly comfortable ride, leaving both the driver and passenger with a premium experience. In the competitive compact sedan category, Hyundai had no choice but to provide massive value to stand out from other popular vehicles like the Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla. This year, the Hyundai Elantra delivered and we are very excited to share all that it has in store.
To start from the outside in, the Hyundai Elantra supports several handy features like the automatic trunk lift. Juggling car keys with arms full of groceries will no longer be an issue for Elantra owners, by waiting 3 seconds behind the trunk of the car the spring loaded lid pops open automatically! Also standard on all Elantra trims is the Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. The Elantra comes standard with daytime running lights and can easily be upgraded to HID headlights with Dynamic Bending Light.
Typically reserved for higher-end vehicles, the 2017 Elantra has 3 different driving modes including normal, sport, and eco mode! Added to the eco driving mode, the fluidic and dynamic sculpture of the 2017 Elantra is what makes the compact Sedan one of the most efficient in its class. With one of the lowest Coefficient of Drag ratings and up to 38 miles to the gallon, the Elantra is good for both the environment and the wallet. While staying efficient, the Elantra has a huge fun factor with over 147 horsepower and dynamic suspension. Upgrade to the Sport trim and the Elantra will boast over 200 horsepower, 18-inch wheels, and sport-tuned suspension and steering.
Moving inside the vehicle, available features like the seat memory control and push button start make this vehicle feel like a high-end sedan! Hyundai’s Integrated Memory System conveniently adjusts the driver seat and external mirrors to the specified settings of two different drivers, that is a feature unavailable on the Toyota Corolla, Chevy Cruze, and the Honda Civic. Standard in the value edition includes heated front seats with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and Bluetooth audio. Unlike most other sedans in its price range, the 2017 Elantra even offers a heated rear seats and steering wheels!
The comfortable interior is not only displayed with a sleek and modern aesthetic, it is loaded with industry standard auto tech.
