The 2017 Nissan Elantra Sport represents the most powerful Elantra model ever made. The new Sport boasts a wide variety of crucial powertrain, chassis and styling upgrades that elevate it over the current SE, Eco, and Limited Elantra models.
The beating heart of the 2017 Elantra Sport is a tenacious 1.6 Turbo GDI four-cylinder engine producing over 200 hp and 190 lb-ft of torque. Drivers have a choice between the six-speed manual transmission or the seven-speed Dual Clutch Transmission with ergonomic paddle shifters.
And of course the most powerful Elantra ever made also offers the most exhilarating driving experience. The Sport is exclusively equipped with an independent multi-link rear suspension designed to elevate on-road dynamics and feel.
The Elantra Sport’s uniquely sculpted bodywork and model-specific interior appointments such as a flat-bottomed steering wheel, sport seats and red contrast stitching sharply distinguish the Sport from the other Elantra trim levels.
“Elantra Sport demonstrates our commitment to providing drivers with compelling vehicle choices that align with their interests,” says Mike Evanoff, Hyundai Motor America manager of product planning. “This is a vehicle that reflects our own passion for cars and driving, expressing it with sharp looks, proven in-car technology, upgraded power, and fun, sporty handling.”
The Elantra’s smooth, elegant appearance and performance are inspired by the concept of “dynamic precision” and are the result of close collaboration between Hyundai designers and engineers. The result is a unique blend of next-level styling and pragmatic aerodynamics that lowers wind resistance and raises pulses.
The distinctive character of the Elantra is encapsulated by Hyundai’s signature hexagonal grille, which projects aggressive character, especially in conjunction with one of the many dramatic lighting options, like HID headlights with Dynamic Bending Lights
And, like its predecessor, the 2017 Elantra offers unmatched value. The 2016 Elantra won the Vincentric Best Value Award, which measures ownership costs across several areas, including fuel efficiency, repairs, maintenance, and depreciation.
Mike O’Brien, vice president, corporate and product planning of Hyundai Motor America, said the award represents the thoughtful design of the Elantra and said the new Elantra will continue to offer unbeatable value to consumers.
“Receiving this award is testament to Elantra …delivering on Hyundai’s promise of safety, technology, style and value,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president, corporate and product planning, Hyundai Motor America. “With the introduction of our all-new 2017 Elantra, we hope to continue the vehicle’s momentum as one of our best-selling nameplates and confirm Elantra as the leader in the compact car category.”In contrast to many dealerships, the management of Universal Hyundai Orlando makes themselves accessible to all customers and we’ve consistently maintained the highest customer satisfaction scores in our district.
