What to Expect with the Efficient Hyundai Elantra
The efficient Hyundai Elantra is one of many compact sedans on the market, but it stands out from the competition with ease. When you get behind the wheel of the Elantra, you should expect elegance, high-quality materials, some of the latest technology, plenty of safety, and efficiency that will save you money.
Getting to Know Hyundai Elantra Features
Since the Elantra is available in five different trim levels, the version that you choose will significantly affect your experience. All models have Bluetooth so you can stay connected. Most also have a 7-inch display audio screen that adds connectivity via both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. You should also expect even more ways to listen to your favorite music with the Hyundai Elantra thanks to SiriusXM satellite radio and HD radio, both of which are on all but the base SE trim. If you want, you can even configure the Elantra to include features typically reserved for more expensive models, such as leather upholstery and heated front seats.
Expect Excellent Efficiency in the Elantra
As a compact sedan, it should come as no surprise that the Hyundai Elantra always delivers the efficiency that drivers are looking for. The Elantra Eco is the most efficient with 32 mpg* in the city and 40* on the highway. However, the others aren’t far behind. After all, the base SE trim has 29 mpg* in the city and 38 mpg* on the highway. Going this far on each drop of fuel doesn’t require any sacrifices in terms of power either. The standard 2.0-liter 4-cylinder is more than powerful enough to move the Elantra with its 147 horsepower. Those in search of more power should take the Elantra Sport for a test drive with its 1.6-liter turbocharged GDI 4-cylinder and 201 horsepower. It even has a multi-link independent rear suspension to complete the sporty handling.
Expect Innovative Features That Lead the Class
Hyundai always works hard to deliver the latest features across their lineup, even on entry-level models like the Elantra. That is why the Hyundai Elantra can give you Automatic Emergency Braking that includes Pedestrian Detection, a feature which helped the 2017 model earn the title of a 2017 IIHS Top Safety Pick+. The Elantra also has some segment-exclusive features, such as its available Integrated Memory System that remembers settings for two different drivers, including the seat and the exterior mirrors; rear passengers are treated to available heated seats, a rarity in the Elantra’s price range. Another segment-exclusive Harvey drivers love is the hands-free smart trunk. This feature is well worth an upgrade as it lets you open the trunk even when your hands are full. This is something you can’t do with the competition.
