2017 Hyundai Elantra serving Countryside Illinois

Overview

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra comes at a time when the compact car is still early into its sixth production cycle. For this model year, a fuel-efficiency mid-level version, the Eco, joins the established trims, which are the base-level SE, the more-bank-for-your-buck Value Edition, the racing-style Sport, and the top-of-the-line Limited.

Interior

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra is a five-seater, with 95.8 cubic feet of cabin space. The trunk yields 14.4 cubic feet of space for luggage. However, if the trunk isn't enough, you can always fold down the bench-style rear seatback to expand cargo space into the cabin. Front seating is provided by a pair of 6-way power adjustable bucket seats, which can be heated if you go with the Eco trim. On the Value Edition and Limited, the driver's seat also comes with power lumbar support for added comfort on long trips. If you prefer leather to cloth upholstery, you can choose the Sport (which is unique with its red contrast stitching) or the Limited. For entertainment, you get a six-speaker MP3 audio system, which includes AM/FM radio and a three-month SiriusXM satellite radio subscription. On the Value Edition and higher, you'd also get Bluetooth connectivity, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for smartphone-based control, a 7-inch color touchscreen; and on the Sport and Limited, dual charging USB ports join the auxiliary audio jack and smartphone USB port. Also present on all trims but the SE-in addition to dual-zone automatic climate control-proximity key entry, push-button engine start, and a 3.5-liter TFT monochromatic cluster display. The Value Edition is the only trim with an auto-dimming rearview mirror and HomeLink transceiver for remotely operating garage doors. The Limited also gets an exclusive feature: Blue Link Connected Care, which is a telematics system that provides emergency assistance, auto collision notification, monthly vehicle health monitoring, and car service scheduling.

Exterior

Using second-generation "Fluidic Sculpture" design language, the 2017 Elantra sports sharp lines and an aggressive stance, and it uses a unibody construction for top-notch sturdiness.

At the front are a pair of projector-style halogen headlights with LED daytime running lights that automatically turn on to reduce conspicuity. On the Value Edition trim or higher, the headlights are accompanied by automatic headlight control for convenient adjustment of illumination. Attached to the front doors of the new Elantra are a pair of fold-away power mirrors, which Hyundai upgrades with heating capability if you choose the Value Edition (or higher). The side mirrors also get turn-signal indicators if you go with the Sport or Limited. Also, choose any trim but the SE if you want a hands-free smart trunk. The Sport and the Limited trims have high-intensity discharge headlights and LED taillights (instead of halogen bulbs). The SE is the only Elantra trims on steel wheels: 15-inch ones. The Eco rides on 15-inch alloy wheels, the Value Edition has 16s, the Limited has 17s, and the Sport has 18s.

Mechanical

To provide a cushioned ride, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra has a suspension with a MacPherson strut design at the front and a coupled torsion beam axle design at the back. The power steering on the vehicle-which provides crisp turning and cornering-relies on an electric motor mounted on the steering column, rather than the engine itself. Although the 2017 Elantra typically has front disc and rear-drum brakes, the top-level Limited has an all-wheel disc brake system for shortening stopping distances.

Powertrain

There are three inline 4-cylinder (I4) engines available on the 2017 Elantra. There's the 2.0-liter 147-horsepower I4, which goes on the SE, Value Edition, and Limited. There's the tiny, 1.4-liter turbocharged 128-horsepower I4, which is exclusive to the Eco. And there's the 1.6-liter turbocharged I4, which is exclusive to the Sport and has the highest output (201 horsepower). True to their sporty orientation, the SE and Sport engines are tied to a 6-speed manual transmission, and a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission goes on the Eco for optimizing fuel economy. A 6-speed automatic transmission is hitched to the engines on the Value Edition and Limited.

Safety

For safety during a crash, the 2017 Elantra comes with dual front impact airbags, dual side impact airbags, a driver's knee airbag, and a pair of side curtain airbags. Also on the Elantra are electronic stability control, traction control, an anti-theft system that incorporates remote keyless entry and panic alarm, and anti-lock braking. On the Eco and Limited, Hyundai upgrades the driver's blind spot mirror to a blind spot detection system, which includes rear cross-traffic alert and lane change assist; and adds a rearview camera for monitoring your driving when the transmission is shifted to reverse.
