The 2017 model Hyundai Elantra has been unveiled at the 2015 LA Auto Show. The Elantra is the US spec model and will be available in the market from early January 2016. The Elantra has had a major change in terms of design and Hyundai has taken the fluidic concept a bit easy in the latest model.
Another major difference is the power trains offered in the 2017 Hyundai Elantra. First up is the 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine that produces an estimated 147bhp, mated to either a manual or a six-speed automatic gearbox. The second engine on offer is a 1.4-litre turbocharged unit that produces 128bhp, mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission.
New Hyundai models is present, accentuating the equally menacing headlights with Dynamic Bending Lights and a vertical LED strip for an unmistakeable visual signature. The Honda Civic (112.9 cubes) and Toyota Corolla (110.5) both best the Elantra in this regard.
On the inside, the new Elantra comes with plenty of space and high-quality materials. New seats made from environmentally friendly SoyFoam offer greater comfort and support whether covered in cloth or available leather and the revamped 60/40 split rear bench provides slightly more head and legroom. There are two optional touch-screen multimedia systems available over the base system: a 7-inch with a backup camera and an 8-inch with navigation.
The tiny turbo mill pumps out 128 hp and 156 lb-ft of torque, with power managed through Hyundai’s seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The starting point for the new Elantra is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine developing 147 hp and 132 lb-ft of torque, with an estimated fuel economy of 29 mpg city, 38 mpg highway and 33 mpg combined. At long last, the Elantra also will offer a second USB charging port. A next-gen Sport model also is in the pipeline and Hyundai promises it will be “the most powerful Elantra yet”.
