Let me show you the top 5 ways;

Totally Eco Friendly

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra knows that going green is important these days, and while it’s not a hybrid or an electric vehicle, it has some serious Eco cred.

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra Eco model will have 1.4-liter, turbo I-4 making 128 hp and 156 lb-ft of torque. It will feature an integrated cylinder head and exhaust manifold along with a single-scroll turbo. In terms of fuel economy, the Elantra Eco is expected to be the most fuel-efficient model in the lineup, and Hyundai says it should achieve up to 35 mpg in the combined cycle.

Efficiency is a Good Thing

So, outside of the Eco model the overall 2017 Hyundai Elantra will be way more efficient than the previous iterations. Hyundai states that automatic Elantras with the new 2.0-liter I-4 should receive an EPA fuel economy rating of 29/38 mpg city/highway. This engine also comes from the Nu family, which Hyundai uses on the Sonata Hybrid, and although both run on the Atkinson cycle, one the Sonata Hybrid’s motor uses direct injection and the Elantra’s uses multiport injection – this makes it way more efficient than the old 1.8-liter I-4!

You can Change Your Mind if You Get Bored

How do you like to drive? Normal, Sporty, or super efficient? With the 2017 Hyundai Elantra you get all three! Normal mode provides a balance of fuel efficiency and performance while Sport mode maximizes performance. The Eco mode sits at the other end of the spectrum and puts priority on saving gas. The great thing is, you can choose whichever mode you want on any given day!

Strong as Steel

You can go ahead and think of your 2017 Hyundai Elantra as your own Superman – your personal man of steel. The 2017 Hyundai Elantra contains more high-strength steel than previous years – 53 percent of the vehicle’s body is reinforced with it! This makes it lighter, stronger and ready to take on the road!

Is Infotainment a Word? Because it Has It!

Let’s talk tech – I love tech. Most people love tech, and it makes your drive feel twice as fast! The Infotainment system in the 2017 Hyundai Elantra is available with a 7- or 8-inch touchscreen, with an interface that features new functions such as a split screen mode to display your navigation directions and music info at the same time.
