2017 Hyundai Elantra Review: Get Sporty Style with Performance

The Hyundai brand is continuing its reputation as a quality carmaker, and this couldn’t be more obvious than in the 2017 Hyundai Elantra. This vehicle offers the perfect combination of classy style and high-tech features, and now, the Sport model is about to get better performance than ever before.

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.
