Vehicle Overview

First appearing as purely an economy ride, the Hyundai Elantra has since blossomed as one of the most popular compact cars in the market. The 2017 model year marks the beginning of the nameplate's sixth production cycle. The trims available are the base-level SE, the fuel-efficient Eco (a first for the Elantra), and the top-level Limited.

InteriorWith two rows that seat up to five people, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra provides 95.8 cubic feet of passenger volume in its cabin. Trunk space is measured at 14.4 cubic feet, although you can bend down the rear seatback to expand cargo space into the cabin. At the front are a pair of 6-way power-adjustable seats. On the Eco, Hyundai adds heating capability on the front seats. Power lumbar support appears on the Limited to provide extra comfort to the driver during long trips. Further comfort and convenience is provided by features like Bluetooth for hands-free phone operation and audio streaming, steering wheel-mounted controls, air-purifying dual-zone automatic climate control for the HVAC system, and a six-speaker audio system that includes Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for using your smartphone to control the head unit, as well as a three-month SiriusXM satellite radio subscription. On the Eco and Limited, Hyundai adds a 7-inch high-resolution touchscreen to display audio information. Exclusive to the Limited in particular is a three-month subscription to Blue Link Connected Care, which provides services like emergency assistance, auto collision notification, and monthly vehicle health monitoring.

Similar to its larger relative, the Sonata, the 2017 Elantra embraces more sharp edges and a larger grille to give it a more aggressive stance. Moreover, the vehicle is made sturdy with a unibody construction. At the front are a pair of projector-style halogen headlights with daytime running light capability. If you're going with the mid-level Eco, the headlights get LED accents and auto headlight control. At the sides are fold-away power mirrors, which are enhanced by heating capability if going with the Eco and the addition of turn-signal indicators if going with the Limited. At the back, Hyundai adds hands-free operation for the Eco trunk and swaps the halogen bulbs on the taillights with longer-lasting LED ones on the Limited. The 2017 Elantra SE rides on 15-inch steel wheels. The Eco and the Limited go with alloy wheels, which are 15 inches on the former and 17 inches on the latter.

Mechanical / Powertrain - Elantra Information

The standard engine on the 2017 Elantra is a 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) that produces 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque. On the SE, it is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission; and on the Limited, it is linked to a 6-speed automatic transmission that comes with Shiftronic technology to exercise more control over gear shifting and Active ECO mode to bolster gas mileage. The Eco, true to its name, stands apart with a smaller, 1.4-liter turbocharged I4 that generates 128 horsepower and 156 lb-ft of torque, as well as a 7-speed EcoShift dual clutch gearbox that allows you to switch effortlessly between automatic and manual gear shifting. The result is a fuel economy that is remarkably better than either the SE or the Limited. A MacPherson strut front suspension and a coupled torsion beam axle rear suspension keeps you cushioned from the turbulence of uneven driving surfaces, and motor-driven power steering provides crisp and efficient handling. On the Limited, Hyundai replaces the rear drum brakes with disc ones to provide an all-wheel disc braking system, thus shortening the amount of time it takes to come to a stop when you press the brake pedal.

Safety - Request a Personalized Hyundai Test Drive

On the 2017 Elantra, crash safety is ensured by a pair of front impact airbags that face the front occupants, a pair of side impact airbags installed on the front seats, a knee airbag at the driver's side, and a pair of roof-mounted curtain airbags that cover both rows of seats. Also on the vehicle are safety features like ABS (anti-lock braking system) for preventing the wheels from locking up when applying the brakes, electronic stability control to keep you in control of your driving direction during sudden maneuvers, traction control to prevent skidding on slippery surfaces, and a remote keyless entry system with panic alarm for vehicle security. 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 (to warn you of vehicles that are entering your backing path) and lane change assist (to alert you of cars in the blind spot region). Also appearing on the Eco and Limited is a rearview camera to assist you when backing out of somewhere or trying to parallel-park.
