2017 Hyundai Elantra – Charlotte, NC
2017 will surely be the “Year of the Elantra.” The latest update to Hyundai’s iconic vehicle is expected to be well-received, as the compact car offers all of the features and capabilities that a driver could possibly want.
The vehicle’s engine and accompanying transmission provide a pleasant driving experience, a factor that’s often ignored by engineers. The car also includes a number of entertainment and safety features, making the car a perfect choice for those with young families. Plus, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra is extremely stylish, and there’s no doubt that you’ll be turning heads as you cruise down the road.
Hyundai’s engineers were successful with every design element of the Elantra. This means the car isn’t just the most impressive option on the compact market, it’s one of the most impressive options in the entire industry.
City/Highway Fuel Economy

While the 2017 Hyundai Elantra may be commended for its style and technology, the car actually delivers quite the punch under the hood. The 2.0-liter engine isn’t only fuel efficient, but it performs like a unit that’s twice its size. Meanwhile, the advanced transmission system (with the exclusive SHIFTRONIC technology) improves the vehicle’s drivability and dependability. These various units also contribute to the vehicle’s incredibly quiet cabin.
It’s certainly not surprising that Hyundai included all of these various amenities to the Elantra’s mechanics. However, no one could have expected this combination of performance capabilities. Not many compact cars offer a reliable engine, dependable transmission, and a quiet ride. That’s a big reason why the Elantra sits on a tier of its own.
Despite being a 2.0-liter, the Elantra’s engine still packs quite the punch. The engine, which comes standard on the SE and Limited, delivers 147 horsepower, which is enough power to get you through any of Colorado’s blustery storms. Thanks to the inclusion of a lighter steel cage and various aerodynamic styling cues, drivers can expect a 38 mile per gallon highway fuel efficiency.
Engineers added the new six-speed automatic transmission to the 2017 Elantra. The system is available with the SHIFTRONIC technology, which will improve the vehicle’s overall durability. The unit also plays a role in the car’s incredible fuel economy, meaning a driver can appreciate the smooth ride without worrying interrupting it with constant stops at the gas station.
Via the transmission, drivers can also opt for a variety of different driving modes, which will manipulate specific aspects of your Elantra to adapt to challenging terrain or weather. By opting for either Normal, Eco, or Sport, drivers should find their car delivers improved handling, steering, and throttle.
Incredibly Quiet Ride
Despite the modest engine and complex mechanics, the Elantra doesn’t hum like other cars. In fact, it does an admirable job of keeping quiet. Engineers repositioned their rear suspension, thickened the front door and rear window glass, and reduced body flex to provide one of the quieter rides on the market. Drivers can now enjoy their music in peace, and they won’t be bothered by excessive vibration or the howling wind.
The Hyundai Elantra is certainly one of the most attractive compact cars on the market, and there’s no denying that the style applies to both the exterior and interior.
The outside of the compact car includes several features that will help the Elantra stand out from the crowd, like the LED taillights. Plus, the exterior also includes a much-appreciated convenience capability that only helps substantiate the brand’s dedication to the car’s craftsmanship. That style is also evident on the inside of the car, with the engineers including several features that will keep all of the vehicle’s occupants comfortable and content.
The outside of the Elantra offers a whole lot more than style and color options. The exterior is highlighted by an array of features that help distinguish the compact car. For example, the HID lighting system includes Dynamic Bending Light, which will instantly alert other drivers of your presence. The LED Daytime Running Lights and LED taillights will serve a similar purpose, and their inclusion also makes your car more attractive.
The exterior also includes the hands-free smart trunk, which will make loading or unloading groceries a whole lot easier. When the Elantra’s Proximity Key is detected, the trunk will automatically open. These amenities can be categorized as “exterior features you didn’t realize you wanted until you had them.”
With several trims to choose from, the Elantra offers one of the more stylish cabins in the segment. However, the 2016 model is more about comfort, as the interior is highlighted by several applicable features. The power-adjustable seat will automatically adjust to your preferred setting, and the heated front and rear seats will keep all of your passengers cozy during those cold winter months. Once it gets hot outside, the dual-zone automatic temperature control system with CleanAir Ionizer and Auto Defogging System will adapt to everyone’s preferred comfort setting.
The interior is also surprisingly roomy, with 38.8 inches of head room and 42.2 inches of leg room up front. There’s also a surprising amount of cargo room, with 14.4-cubic-feet at your disposal. The Elantra ended up being so roomy that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency classifies the vehicle as a midsize (as opposed to a compact) car.
The Hyundai Elantra is chock-full of innovative features, and the vehicle’s main technological inclusion is its eight-inch touchscreen system. The unit is accompanied by an advanced and elaborate sound system, which will provide drivers and passengers with an unmatched traveling experience.
The technology doesn’t only apply to the interior. There are several safety technologies featured along the exterior of the vehicle that will help keep all of the Elantra’s occupants safe and secure.
Speaking of safety, the Elantra also includes a number of technological features that will keep all of the vehicle’s occupants protected. For example, the Automatic Emergency Braking system will automatically decelerate your vehicle if a collision is deemed imminent. Other features will help prevent your car from drifting at high speeds or colliding with a vehicle that may have snuck into your blind spot.
The Elantra’s interior is highlighted by the eight-inch color navigation center, which allows drivers to access a number of applications (like SiriusXM Satellite Radio). With the eight speaker system featuring the Infinity Premium Audio with Clari-Fi Music Restoration Technology, drivers can enjoy an optimal music-listening experience.
There’s also a number of convenience features included in the brand-new Elantra. By connecting with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, drivers can access many of their phone’s basic capabilities without losing focus on the road. The touchscreen even offers an extensive navigation system, and the Smart Cruise Control technology allows the driver to take a temporary break and enjoy the ride.
