The New Elantra
Though 2015 hasn’t quite ended, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra is already here for us to take a look at. This will be the sixth generation of the Elantra and from the looks of it, this is going to be an interesting year for the sedan. The exterior design shows us that Hyundai is continuing with the fluidic sculpture design. The interior design also offers a high level of style, but what many drivers might find most interesting are the new efficient powertrains.
The Elantra offers automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection technology in hopes of achieving a Top Safety Pick+ rating. Other new features include the hands-free smart trunk and a 7-inch display audio touchscreen with a rearview camera. This grouping of features is just a few of the many great features that will improve the driving experience for the 2017 model year.View Inventory
New Elantra Powertrains
The new powertrain options have given the Elantra an improved level of fuel efficiency and everyday drivability. The base engine option is a 2.0-liter Atkinson cycle four-cylinder engine that produces 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and has a high level of fuel economy with 29 city and 38 highway mpg. The second option is a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 128 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque.
The new chassis is lighter than the previous model and is also much more rigid, with 53 percent advanced high-strength steel compared to 21 percent from the previous model year. This has resulted in a 29.5 percent higher torsional rigidity and 25.3 percent greater bending strength. This results in improvements in the overall ride, handling, quietness, durability and performance. The suspension of the Elantra has also been improved through a McPherson strut with coil springs and gas shock absorbers and a front stabilizer bar to reduce body roll when cornering. This system improves driving precision as well as fuel efficiency, making the Elantra a better performer than ever.
