The New and Improved 2017 Hyundai Elantra

January 11 2020

The Hyundai designers and engineers appear to have been on a mission when creating the all-new 2017 Elantra. Their efforts have been rewarded with an innovative vehicle that offers motorists an above class driving experience in a compact car. The composition of the 2017 Hyundai Elantra boasts an original standard for rigidity and a vehicle structure that is significantly formed of Hyundai advanced high strength steel. This effectively forms the innovative structure that provides a new and enhanced level of driving comfort, with a vehicle handling that is smooth and precise.

The driving environment is further enhanced by improved interior quietness and enhanced safety. This includes technology advancements such as those in the available form of the Autonomous Emergency Braking system with Pedestrian Detection. The comfortable heated front seats, fitted as standard, are another example of how this new Hyundai driving experience is one that will exceed your most critical expectations.

Exceptional Style and Comfort

It is recognized by many that the previous Elantra was a car that introduced the public to a new era of Hyundai styling. The new 2017 Elantra with its elegant lines could be said to be distancing itself from the accentuated curves and detailed design of the previous model. This is shown at the front of the 2017 Hyundai Elantra with a grille that is wider and with increased depth, which makes for an identifying Elantra presence.

With curve-shaped LED running lights, the front-end has received some highlighting tone, and with reduced sculpting along the sides of the body, the Elantra appears more refined and it could be said, classier!

Powerful Yet Efficient Performance

Power and efficiency should be effectively combined, and the new Elantra succeeds in making this happen. With its new 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, the Atkinson cycle technology usually applied in hybrid vehicles is utilized in helping the 2017 Hyundai Elantra achieve an acceptable fuel rating of 6.1L/100 km on the highway and 8.7L/100 km in the city and 7.0L/100 km combined. With a 147 horsepower engine and 132 lb.-ft. of torque, this 2017 model has an edge in power over the previous model.

The positive safety aspects of the Elantra can be seen by the IIHS awarding Hyundai top scores for the 2017 Elantra that included a Top Safety Pick Plus award, while the NHTSA awarded the vehicle four stars overall. Further safety features include seven airbags fitted as standard, with an available rearview camera and a lot more!
