For the 2017 model year, the Elantra Sport has received a new powertrain. This turbocharged 1.6-liter engine is capable of 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. The new motor is paired to a manual six-speed transmission or an optional seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, which helps send power to the front wheels.
With this power, the 2017 Elantra Sport will be even more fun-to-drive. It will even receive a number of other enhancements that will make it appear even more athletic. These changes, according to iTech Post, include standard leather sport seats, a proximity key with push-button start, a flat-bottom steering wheel, alloy pedals with rubberized texture, dual chrome exhaust, and a sporty hexagonal grille.
In addition, the Elantra Sport will also get standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, which will make it easier for the driver to stay connected while out on the road.
With an improved powertrain, more athletic interior and exterior features, and more technology, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport is a top pick in the compact car segment. Find out more about this vehicle at Rex Perry Hyundai.

Looking at the stylish and practical sedan, car buyers are realizing the potential of the Elantra now more than ever. It’s the perfect time to buy this great new model.
The 2017 Elantra design is one of its great new features, both inside and out. The contoured body is engaging and sleek, with aerodynamic curves that will grab attention on the highway. Plus, with distinct lighting, a wide hexagonal grille, and a range of bright color tones to choose from, the new Elantra doesn’t get any better.
The interior design is just as impressive as the exterior. “The Elantra’s cabin wholly embraces the art of simplicity without feeling overly boring or stale,” said the auto writers at KBB.com. “The steering wheel offers plenty of flexibility for a variety of body types, while the driver’s seat won us over with its 8-way power adjustment, ample thigh support and, unlike the Civic or Cruze, memory settings and 2-way lumbar support.”
The Hyundai Elantra is a compact model, but you wouldn’t guess from the interior. The passenger cabin is surprisingly roomy, with 14.4 cubic feet of cargo room—among the largest in its segment—as well as seating for five. You won’t want to leave the driver’s seat of this new model. Aside from the design, discover what else makes the Elantra so enjoyable by test driving this model for yourself.
