2017 Hyundai Elantra Review, Specs
2017 Hyundai Elantra Review. In today’s fiercely competitive automotive world simply getting a buyers attention is tough six years ago Hyundai figured a 10 year warranty wasn’t enough and adapted daring design the 2017 Hyundai Elantra getting the swoopy assigns of the bunch the gamble now toning those curves down beat
the new 2017 Hyundai Elantra now of course you’re going to cross shop because intelligent people always do that means you’re probably looking at cars like civic, cruise, corolla, mazda3, focus, jetta, Sentra so many cars in this segment and many have grown up like Corolla and civic.
the EPA classifies the launchers cabin volume as a midsize that’s about as large as a BMW 3-series materials look and feel good in class don’t expect soft materials everywhere this limited model that will set you back about twenty seven thousand seven hundred dollars has stuff found only on luxury cars 10 years ago including blind spot warning and adaptive cruise control also 2017 Hyundai Elantra is equipped with an auto braking system that detects pedestrians.
and some of you have written to ask why I don’t demonstrate that well I invite you to come and stand in front of the car right after you sign the release forms as for driving dynamics under engineers have done an awful lot to improve the ride quality it’s very comfortable not sporty like mazda 3 and maybe honda civic but honestly done body movements are very well controlled the outgoing cars steering rack was the very inspiration for novacane this one offers feedback here is what makes it go a 147 horsepower two liter four-cylinder connecting it to the front wheels is a 6-speed gearbox with the manual mode.
just not up here on the steering wheel set the steering weight and throttle response to suit your mood eager to hit 60 miles an hour that will take about eight seconds brisk at best in the outgoing model if I were talking to you about road noise or anything really I’d have to do this the new generation is much quieter half the structure is stamped out of high-strength steel some 390 feet of adhesive stiffens it further yes folks it’s glued and welded that’s a good thing for better fuel efficiency a lot of modern automatic transmissions are reluctant to kick down into a lower here elantra happy to do it in a week of driving i averaged about 32 miles from each gallon of gas.
it’s worth noting that visibility is decent and that android auto and apple carplay are available also the lane keep assist system is well-executed memory seats nice so are lots of storage cubbies.
the Sun visors are well thought out and 2017 Hyundai Elantra is available with a proximity trunk release that opens automatically if you just stand next to it for a few seconds space is not an issue back here two adults will be perfectly comfortable three will be okay if they’re skinny hull car seats in and out often wide opening doors cooperate I’m not sure why Hyundai couldn’t put a pocket on the driver’s chair or throw in a power port.
I recently tested the new Honda Civic that easily swallow six packs of this stuff you can practically cut the suspense with a 9 can’t you yes the seats do this yes there is a spare and yes the trunk is very large in my practical real-world test it matches the Honda at six packs when the hinge arms do not pinch the cargo these crisp lines appear more elegant and upscale than the outgoing car something the larger sonata didn’t quite pull off as well it may be less emotional to the eye now.
the new alondra’s comfort and refinement is worth a shoppers attention in this crowded segment for enthusiasts rumor has it there’s a sport model coming perhaps enough sport to go head-to-head with Civic Si and focus st who knows fingers crossed as it stands elantra is certainly a very strong competitor to Corolla and civic I have not driven.
the new Chevy Cruze at this point there are rumblings that it’s very good but I try not to read other people’s reviews to keep a fresh perspective so remember test drive people a final thought considering all the features available and the roominess some compacts offer smart mid-sized sedans shoppers might peruse this segment two well there you are that is my take on the 2017 hyundai elantra.
