Under the hood is a 2.0-liter Atkinson four-cylinder that
produces 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque, tuned just right to deliver
maximum power in the RPM range you're most likely to find
yourself in. Just because it's fun to drive doesn't mean you should be emptying
your pockets at the pump, though, which is where the Elantra's EPA-estimated 38
MPG on the highway comes in handy.
Inside, you'll find lots of standard features like
smartphone and USB compatibility, auxiliary input jacks, and SiriusXM Satellite
Radio. Opting for higher trim levels or some of the available
packages-including Popular Equipment, Tech, and Ultimate-unlock features you
might expect to see in entry-level luxury vehicles, such as a 7-inch Display
Audio system with Apple CarPlay
and Android Auto support, a
rearview camera, heated front seats, and blind spot detection.
Speaking of safety, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra is no slouch in
that category, either. In addition to seven airbags and side-impact beams, the
Elantra offers numerous active safety features like Automatic Emergency Braking
with segment-first Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Warning, and more.
2016 model earned the highest five-star overall score for vehicle safety in
government crash testing and we expect the 2017 model to do the same.
