The 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show saw the unveiling of the 2017 Hyundai Elantra, the sixth generation of one of the company’s all-time best-selling models and the undisputed leader of the compact car category. And the assertive, aerodynamic design, upscale stylistic elements, enhanced performance, and improved fuel efficiency of the new Elantra have already made it a favorite with the automotive press.
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
The Elantra’s interior is as impressive as the exterior, epitomizing a “modern driver-oriented design” that features intuitive interfaces, roomier interiors, premium materials and first-class technology features that maximize comfort and connectivity. The attractive, soft-touch materials integrated into key touch points of the fresh, contemporary interior design make the passenger cabin more inviting and comfortable for everybody inside, but the obvious focus is maximizing the driving experience.
All trim levels of the Elantra come equipped with standard iPhone®/USB and auxiliary input jacks and SiriusXM® satellite radio. New to the 2017 model is the addition of two high-tech media interface systems that maximize device connectivity. Sweet features like an available 7.0-inch Display Audio touchscreen system with rearview camera, and Hyundai’s next-generation 8.0-inch navigation system offer upgrade options for the discerning driver looking for maximum value. apps. The new Elantra is also the first Hyundai vehicle to offer an available second USB port for smartphone charging.
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.”
