The new Hyundai Elantra model was released earlier this year with many new surprising features. The Elantra models are typically known to be practical, casual and a great first car purchase for many. It’s no wonder that the Hyundai Elantra is one of the best selling vehicles in Canada. Placed in the mid-size category, the Hyundai Elantra has immense competition in this field. However, the newest generations of the Elantra have been putting up quite a fight against some of the more popular, established models in the recent years.

The new 2017 Hyundai Elantra model features many upgrades from the 2016 model. Although the Elantra is famed as the “practical choice”, the newer model boasts performance and design elements that classify it as a fairly priced, luxurious vehicle. Hyundai’s consumers are typically budget conscious but they demand more in its appeal, features and drivability performance. All of the feature and quality demands were certainly met in this new 2017 Hyundai Elantra release, without compromising the attractive, low price.

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra is offered in: L Manual, LE, FL, GLS, Limited and Ultimate.

2017 Hyundai Elantra Redesign

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra immediately looks different at first glance. Although it kept its recognizable body shape, it has a more mature look than the outgoing model. Audi inspired its new design elements on the outer body, which is apparent in its luxurious look. The new 2017 Elantra model outperforms the last model in more areas than design. In an Elantra comparison, the 2017 model is bigger, quieter, built with higher quality materials, faster and more fuel-efficient than the last.

The interior of the 2017 Hyundai Elantra is definitely more spacious and luxurious than before as well. The leather seats, wider dashboard, touch screen elements and many driving features can cause this model to be mistaken for other models similar to BMW and Audi sedans.



2017 Hyundai Elantra Specs

As mentioned throughout this post and many review sites, everything is better on the new 2017 Hyundai Elantra model than the last. The model incorporates the newest Advanced High Strength Steel technology that improves the quality of the ride. The engine, suspension and Popular Equipment package are all upgraded as well from the outgoing model. The new generation 2.0L Atkinson tuned engine touts 147 HP at 6200 RPM with 132 torque, which improves the Elantra’s performance on steep hills and highway trips.

Despite all of the upgrades to the engine and speed, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra has managed to keep the gas consumption low. The 2017 Hyundai Elantra Limited is capable of 8.4L/100 km in the city, 6.35L/100 km on a highway and 7.35L/100 km combined.

2017 Hyundai Elantra Reviews

Overall, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra has gotten raving reviews. The new model was released with more feature upgrades than anticipated.

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra goes above and beyond the Elantra’s image as a good buy for the price. Although its price is still one of its most appealing features, its performance and capabilities are stealing the show.
