The value-packed 2017 Hyundai Elantra offers leading technology and generous amenities.
The 2017 Elantra enters its sixth-generation with a refined design and modern style combined with class-above features, the latest in safety and multimedia technology. The new Elantra presents a strong value proposition with its all-new efficient powertrains for improved fuel economy, better ride quality and noise insulation and segment-first premium conveniences that help set it apart from the rest of the compact car class. The well-appointed Elantra Limited trim offers a Tech Package that contains the latest multimedia technology including eight-inch touchscreen navigation with Infinity premium audio system and the segment’s first application of Clari-Fi® Music Restoration Technology. Additionally, the available Limited Ultimate package introduces premium convenience features to the compact class segment such as a segment-first integrated memory system for the driver seat and outside mirrors, and new safety technology all designed to enhance driver confidence and comfort. The Ultimate Package democratizes the technology found in class-above vehicles by offering a suite of advanced safety features including Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Keep Assist System, and HID headlights with Dynamic Bending Light. Both the Elantra SE and Limited trims are powered by an all-new 2.0L Nu MPI Atkinson cycle 4-cylinder engine providing 147 horsepower and 132 lb.-ft. of torque for smooth power delivery for every day driving. This engine is paired with either a standard six-speed manual or Elantra’s available next generation six-speed automatic transmission that delivers a more natural and linear driving feel compared with a Continuously Variable Transmission that many compact car competitors have adopted in recent years. This new powertrain also helps the Elantra SE achieve an EPA fuel economy rating of 33 mpg combined for improved efficiency over the previous model. In addition, the fuel-efficient Eco trim features an all-new 1.4-liter Kappa turbocharged GDI four-cylinder engine with an EcoShift seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The new Elantra is equipped with seven standard airbags and is expected to receive a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and a 5-Star Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
